There’s a light at the end of the tunnel There’s a break from the rain There’s some good behind this trouble There’s a reason for the pain There’s a smile that comes in the morning There’s a peace that comes to stay There’s a hope for the hopeless and for the faithless there is faith So, hold on you are not forgotten Hold on love is on the way Hold on There’s a healing hand in the shadows There’s coming a resurrection day There is justice for the broken and for the sinner there is grace You’re not too far away You’re not too far away He’s heard every prayer that you’ve prayed
Keep your head up I will keep your head up Hold your hopes high I will hold your hopes high Stop your fighting I will do your fighting And your grappling I am closer than your next breath I’ve never seen you not in a thousand parts You keep breaking...Oh Tell me something you need ‘sides my heart It keeps breaking...Oh Keep the pace up I will keep the pace up Break the walls down I will break the walls down Stop your crying let me do the crying How truth it rolls down sweet and soft from a friend!
You don’t, you don’t have to find me I will find you in time when I’m miles from your mind There’s no, there’s no way to find me you have got a broken sense of direction you’ve missed it all I know, I know where you went to that old tree you hid behind tried your best to stay quiet My call, still echoes in your heart’s hall though every single thought of me you’ve erased with a lie you bought Your that, your that lost one leaving it all behind and I am running to you There’s no, there’s no way to find me I am never found, but find and in time you’ll be mine... When I’m miles from your mind
I don’t have the words anymore I don’t have the phrases that’ll make you move All the times before like a fool I had a deal I was trying to sell you on This maybe my first one My first cry for help Its been under mounds of dust up on my shelf I’m tired of posing as your son I’m tired of thinking its all in the bag I know you see straight down into my heart of all the roles I play you know my truest one is Me behind closed doors Behind all the lies I front Symbols of who I’d be without your love I don’t have the tears, so will you weep for me? You don’t have my fears, so will you fight for me? I don’t have a prayer please pray for me
You take notice and I ain’t worth a glance Know my needs and provide for them A cup of wrath I deserve on my head but a cup of grace you pour instead You can do no wrong it seems I never do right You’re in it for the long haul mostly I’m just looking for one night You’re the reason we’re friends at all Why I stopped fighting, laid down my sword Without your love oh, I’m lost You see me in the distance come running just to wrap me in your arms A cup of wrath I deserve on my head but an ocean of grace you pour instead
I used to hope in Friday from Monday’s desert sand Like a slave caught in Egypt longing for a better land The weekend was my water, just the thought of being free from my every inclination to be everyone, but me I started wearing t-shirts I got from Goodwill on that long, back stretch of my senior year I was new wine they were my new wineskins but looking back I see I still had yet to ferment Pushing through every door, turning corners trying to find me Leaving home, leaving all on my shoulders at my feet Was it a fire or an ocean that was raging down deep? Its hard to say...to put into words for a song that I can sing I tossed my cap and the next day I was driving in my car to North Carolina, to my summer job They said I had the worst group and at first I agreed Till days became weeks and my eyes began to see These were boys not men and all they wanted was love and I was just like them in need of a hug Passing on never slowing are those tiny grains of sand I can turn the glass over, but never stop the second hand Moments turn to memories and memories fade, too fast, but some they stick around till you breathe your last
