You

“You”
September 1, 2013

((Verse 1))
When I was crying late that night
Unable to form my words right
You wiped away every one of my tears
And, You told me what I needed to hear
Then You emptied me of me and filled me with you
Until proclaiming Your name was all I could do

[Chorus]
You are my Savior, my Lord, and my King
You are the Creator of everything
You are the real and true beloved Son
You are the holy and anointed One
You are the beginning and the end
You are my Teacher and You’re my Friend
I am Your daughter
You are my Father
And You love me

((Verse 2))
When I was lost and feeling worthless
You showed me that You give me purpose
You led me in the right direction
And filled my heart with Your perfection
When all I could see was my pain and my scars
You rid me of myself and showed me who You are

[Chorus]
You are my Savior, my Lord, and my King
You are the Creator of everything
You are the real and true beloved Son
You are the holy and anointed One
You are the beginning and the end
You are my Teacher and You’re my Friend
I am Your daughter
You are my Father
And You love me

{Bridge}
You led me from the valley of death
You filled me with Your eternal breath
You spared my life on that tree
When You died You thought if me

[Chorus]
You are my Savior, my Lord, and my King
You are the Creator of everything
You are the real and true beloved Son
You are the holy and anointed One
You are the beginning and the end
You are my Teacher and You’re my Friend
I am Your daughter
You are my Father
And You love me

[Chorus]
You are my Savior, my Lord, and my King
You are the Creator of everything
You are the real and true beloved Son
You are the holy and anointed One
You are the beginning and the end
You are my Teacher and You’re my Friend
I am Your daughter
You are my Father
And You love me

I Am Loved

“I Am Loved”

((Verse 1))
My heart played me like a game
Then I suffered through the pain
Now I am living for You
Because, Lord You got me through
All the gloom and despair
That made all those who love me
Look like they did not care
Yes, now I finally see

[Chorus]
I am loved
I am cared for
And, I know
I am worth more
Than the pain
And the shame
That destroyed me for so long
Now I know you made me strong

((Verse 2))
All of misconception
And, every deception
Hurt me so much I forgot
I am in Your every thought
Every day and all night
I’m in your line of sight
And, I don’t have to worry
Because I finally see

[Chorus]
I am loved
I am cared for
And, I know
I am worth more
Than the pain
And the shame
That destroyed me for so long
Now I know you made me strong

{Bridge}
All of the lies
Come from the enemy
And, only You
Turn death into beauty
The enemy claimed the truth is
I am completely worthless
But, because of You
I know what is true

[Chorus]
I am loved
I am cared for
And, I know
I am worth more
Than the pain
And the shame
That destroyed me for so long
Now I know you made me strong

“Why” (Written July 21-22, 2013)

((Verse 1))
This feels like a dream I cannot shake
It feels so unreal, am I awake?
I wanna open my eyes
And find out it was a lie
Let’s go back to life as it was before
I wish I could just not care anymore?

((Verse 2))
Things were perfect as they were
But, now it’s all a painful blur
I always thought you were someone else
I guess I was lying to myself
Because looking back on it all right now
I realize I should have seen it somehow

[Chorus]
Why does living life have to hurt so bad?
And, why does one hurt make my whole world crash?
Why can’t I be carefree for just one day
Before the pain and sorrow come to play?
Why do I even have to care?
Can’t I just live life unaware?

((Verse 3))
This is so crazy, why did things change
I felt amazing; now I feel strange
I was flying so high
But, now I wanna cry
I was looking through a rose colored lens
And, now everything, but nothing makes sense

((Verse 4))
My world is spinning all around
Everything seems to be crashing down
Things were lining up so well
But, then it all quickly fell
Every single time I start to bounce back
I am hit by yet another attack

[Chorus]
Why does living life have to hurt so bad?
And, why does one struggle make my whole world crash?
Why can’t I be happy for just one day
Before the pain and sorrow come to stay
Why do I even have to care
Can’t I just live life unaware

{Bridge}
God I know you’ve gotta be here
But, it feels like you disappeared
So, God if You’re listening to me
Can you answer a few things for me

[Chorus]
Why does living life have to hurt so bad?
And, why does one struggle make the whole world crash?
Why can’t I be happy for just one day
Before the pain and sorrow come to stay
Why do I even have to care
Can’t I just live life unaware

Begin Anew and Start Again

((Verse 1))

Once upon a time

There was a young girl

Whose sweet, little mind

Couldn’t trust the world

She was broken

From words spoken

Such a long, long time ago

She just couldn’t let it go

 

[Chorus]

But, then she met a nice man

Who showed her that she can

Begin anew

Start again

And, learn how to

Be a friend

To those who show

Her how to grow

 

((Verse 2))

Now she’s the new girl

In a little old town

It’s a whole new world

Where news gets around

But, she’s okay

Cause they won’t say

Any word about their own

And, that’s something that they’ve shown

 

[Chorus]

Cause, now she knows a nice man

Who shows her that she can

Begin anew

Start again

And, learn how to

Be a friend

To those who show

Her how to grow

 

{Bridge}

And, when trouble comes her way

She won’t ever run away

Because she’s one of theirs

And, each one of them cares

 

[Chorus]

And, now she knows a nice man

Who shows her that she can

Begin anew

Start again

And, learn how to

Be a friend

To those who show

Her how to grow

 

[Chorus]

Yeah, now she knows a nice man

Who shows her that she can

Begin anew

Start again

And, learn how to

Be a friend

To those who show

Her how to grow

Perfect Mold

((Verse 1))
Looking in the mirror, you see yourself                                 
Wishing you could be anybody else                                      
‘Cause the girl you see ain’t the girl you’ve seen                  
On the covers of every magazine                                           
So you eat less and less                                                          
Slowly die from the stress                                                     
You’ve put on your body                                                     
To become a hottie                                                                 
 
[Pre-Chorus 1]
Oh when you look at your reflection                                     
All you can see is imperfection                                              
You see burns, and pain, and flaws unending                                
You don’t see the beauty that is mending                             
But, you’re a perfect mold                                                     
And, you’re worth more than gold                                        
 
[Chorus]
So, hear me out                                                                      
Forget about                                                                           
The pain, the weight                                                              
The lust, the hate                                                                    
And, just believe                                                                    
You can achieve 
                                                                   
((Verse 2))
In the dark of the pain, I see you stand                                 
With an old red stained blade in your hand                          
Late into the dark night, you lay awake                                
Praying your life God would finally take                              
But all He gives is life                                                            
So you pick up your knife                                                      
And, without a next thought                                                 
You do what you should not                                                 
 
[Pre-Chorus 2]
Cause, when you look at your painful scars                         
All you can see are your hateful marks                                  
You see burns, and pain, and flaws unending                                   
You don’t see the beauty that is mending                             
But, you’re a perfect mold                                                     
And, you’re worth more than gold                                        
 
[Chorus]
So, hear me out                                                                     
Forget about                                                                           
The pain, the weight                                                              
The lust, the hate                                                                    
And, just believe                                                                    
You can achieve                                                                     
((Verse 3))
Lying alone, cuddled up in your bed                                     
Instant regret, floods through your heart and head               
He promised love, but all you got was hate                           
For yourself, for him, and this ruthless fate                           
Now all you think about                                                       
Is how to live without                                                            
The innocence you lost                                                          
For such a painful cost                                                           
 
[Pre-Chorus 3]
Now when you look at your reflection                                  
All you see is your own rejection                                           
You see scars, and pain, and flaws unending                        
You don’t see the beauty that is mending                             
But, you’re a perfect mold                                                     
And, you’re worth more than gold                                        
 
[Chorus]
So, hear me out                                                                      
Forget about                                                                           
The pain, the weight                                                              
The lust, the hate                                                                    
And, just believe                                                                    
You can achieve

You’re the only Answer in my life
You are the only Air I breathe
And, You’re Everything  I need
