Track Name: Grace
VERSE 1:
Grace, staring in my face tonight
What do i do? I turn my back on You,
And try to take what i think You owe.
I forfeit my heritage, squander my inheritance
Feast in the filth of pigs, and love every minute
But now i want to go back home
I dont need Your rings or robes.
All that i need is Your grace

CHORUS:
Why am i begging for what You gave me?
Why would You die if not to save me?
Why do i cry out, and call You a liar now?
Take my shame and teach me what it means to be saved.

VERSE 2:
Homeits where i long to be tonight.
Safe in Your arms again. Free from the shame of sin,
To walk with You hand in hand
But here i go again
Back to this dirty place, forsaking You to Your face
Then crying out for Your grace.

CHORUS:
Why am i begging for what You gave me?
Why would You die if not to save me?
Why do i cry out, and call You a liar now?
Take my shame and teach me what it means to be saved.

BRIDGE:
I have to believe that You knew what You were doing when You died on the Tree
I have to believe that You knew what You were getting into when You offered Your grace to me
You knew all Id say, how Id stray away, all i would do before running back to You
And begging for grace that You already gave.
So put me in my place and show me that im saved.

CHORUS:
Why am i begging for what You gave me?
Why would You die if not to save me?
Why do i cry out, and call You a liar now?
Take my shame and teach me what it means to be saved.
Track Name: Everything She Loves
VERSE 1:
She sits in the back seat.
Its like her face has transparency
Because we can all see exactly what shes thinking
And we all know she misses him
And we all know shes wondering
Just how things might have been
If she hadnt started noticing

CHORUS:
Everything else in everybody else
Thats making her forget about everything she loves.
But everything else in everybody else
Could never replace everything she loves.

VERSE 2:
Well she hates being lonely
But always wants to be alone.
She thinks shes the only broken lover on this road.
And we all know she misses him
And we all know shes wondering
Just how things might have been
If she hadnt started noticing

CHORUS:
Everything else in everybody else
Thats making her forget about everything she loves.
But everything else in everybody else
Could never replace everything she loves.
Track Name: Leaves Like Eve's
VERSE 1:
I don't love You though i aim to
Though i claim to when i call Your Name.
I don't believe You. I just deceive You
And pretend sewn leaves like Eve's can hide my shame
Or like You are to blame.

CHORUS:
I would love to come before You
And lay my crown down on the ground at Your feet.
But I'm afraid I'm a little too late
Because i pawned them off at the shop down the street
For a price that cant be beat.

VERSE 2:
You don't amaze me. You don't even phase me.
All my words are just hollow phrases.
I must be crazy to think that maybe
Giving You all my love could leave me lazy
Or keep me complacent.

CHORUS:
I would love to come before You
And lay my crown down on the ground at Your feet.
But I'm afraid I'm a little too late
Because i pawned them off at the shop down the street
For a price that cant be beat.

BRIDGE:
I'm not broken and I'm not breaking.
My eyes are open and I stand naked.
I'm not overwhelmed. I'm not consumed.
I'm not all these things that I say to You
'Cause i lie to You.

CHORUS:
I would love to come before You
And lay my crown down on the ground at Your feet.
But I'm afraid I'm a little too late
Because i pawned them off at the shop down the street
For a price that cant be beat.
Track Name: Fine
VERSE 1:
I'm beginning to see how you perceive me,
And I am the one who can't finish anything.
I guess that's just me. So what can I say?
I always up and leave when I don't want to stay.

PRE-CHORUS:
And I know what you want for me.
But you don't see

CHORUS:
You don't see what I see, looking through your eyes.
And you don't hear what I do in your mind.
And you need to realize what i just realized,
That I am doing fine.

VERSE 2:
I know what you mean. What you are trying to say.
But if its all the same, I don't wanna hear it today.
I know you mean well. You just want what's best for me.
But consider if you will that I might know whats best for me.

PRE-CHORUS:
And I know what you want for me.
But you don't see

CHORUS:
You don't see what I see, looking through your eyes.
And you don't hear what I do in your mind.
And you need to realize what i just realized,
That I am doing fine.
Track Name: Change The View
VERSE 1:
Sin is my labor, and death is my wage
But You get every paycheck, and I never get paid.
To live is for Jesus, and to die would be gain
But still You keep me breathing, day after day

CHORUS:
And I know I've earned my death
A thousand times over and over again
But still You keep loving me, loving me
Like holes in your hands.

VERSE 2:
I'm sure You need me like a spear in the side.
So why do you believe me, when You know how i lie?
You're the only one who sees me
Through my foolish disguise
Still You wipe these two by fours
And tears from my eyes.

CHORUS:
And I know I've earned my death
A thousand times over and over again
But still You keep loving me, loving me
Like holes in your hands.

BRIDGE:
You can see right through all the evil things I do
And somehow You still love the view
So won't You get into all that I cannot undo
And somehow change the view.
I'm begging You to change the view.

CHORUS:
I know I've earned my death
A thousand times over and over again
But still You keep loving me, loving me
Like holes in your hands.
Track Name: My Favorite Song
VERSE:
I love the way you put your little feet on mine
When I'm trying to say goodnight.
You take me by the hands, and you say lets dance,
And we dance all around the room
To the sound of this beautiful inaudible tune.

CHORUS:
That's the way you move me. You prove me wrong
When I say I'm tired and I want to go home
You shake me. You take me away
You make me say that's my favorite song
Baby thats my favorite song.
Track Name: I Am A Man
VERSE 1:
How could I fail to understand
You were not a "righteous man?"
You were something different.
Something more like I AM.
But I am so unworthy. So undeserving. I'm just so dirty.
Still You came down for me.
You walked upon this dirty ground for me.
You wore thorns on Your brow for me.

CHORUS:
What am I supposed to say, when I don't understand?
Your way is not my way
You are a God, and I am a man.

VERSE 2:
How could my pride make me forget
I'm not the One who was sent?
I am someone different; someone more like a man.
But You are, You are so holy, surrounded by glory.
You're just so worthy.
But still, I nail You down for me.
I throw You on this dirty ground for me.
I push thorns on Your brow for me.

CHORUS:
What am I supposed to say, when I don't understand?
Your way is not my way
You are a God, and I am a man.
Track Name: Let It Be Yours
VERSE 1:
If i can say just one thing, let it be Your name Lord
If i can hear just one voice

CHORUS:
Let it be Yours
Let Your holiness pour from my lips.
May my thoughts be inhabited Lord
Let Your glory fall over me
Let it be Yours.

VERSE 2:
If I can sing just one song, let it be in Your Name Lord.
And when I need strength in weakness
I'll call on Your name,

CHORUS:
Let it be Yours
Let Your holiness pour from my lips.
May my thoughts be inhabited Lord
Let Your glory fall over me
Let it be Yours.

BRIDGE:
Oh Lord, teach me to die to myself
So all that is left is You, oh You
Let me eat and breathe on Your Word

CHORUS:
Let me be Yours
Let Your holiness pour from my lips.
May my thoughts be inhabited Lord
Let Your glory fall over me
Let it be Yours.
Track Name: I Do
VERSE 1:
Lord I feel like a fool.
I tasted the fruit again.
It seems like I'd realize, if it could open my eyes,
Then I'd have seen way back when.

PRE-CHORUS:
And I need to know why...

VERSE 2:
I chase the wrong that I desire
And replace the death that I deserve
In a heart that's grown so cold
By a pride becoming so bold
And forget about everything I've learned

PRE-CHORUS:
And i need to know why

CHORUS:
I do what I don't want to and dont know why.
I do what I dont love to and dont know why.

VERSE 3:
I don't really know how I can live
Between the things I do and say
Like how I beg for Your grace
Stand up and spit in Your face,
Take up my mat and run away

PRE-CHORUS:
And I'm dying to know why

CHORUS:
I do what I don't want to and dont know why.
I do what I dont love to and dont know why.
Track Name: It's Only Been Four Days
VERSE 1:
I'm all alone, longing to see you
'Cause this airport gray has got me blue
I want to go home
'Cause these West Texas plains are far too plain a view
Compared to you.

CHORUS:
You'd be a sight for my sore eyes.
You'd be a sight for my sore eyes.

VERSE 2:
I'm all alone, longing to see you smile
But my heart knows as time slows, it'll be a while
I watch the clock, and the minutes feel like days
So if my watch is right, then my flight's still months away.

CHORUS:
You'd be a sight for my sore eyes.
You'd be a sight for my sore eyes.

BRIDGE:
And there's an aching in my eyes
Because they need to feel your gaze.
They just dont realize
It's only been four days.

CHORUS:
You'd be a sight for my sore eyes.
You'd be a sight for my sore eyes.
Track Name: Majesty
VERSE:
Majesty. His majesty reigns supreme in me.
Majesty. His majesty reigns supreme in me.

PRE-CHORUS:
So give thanks to the Lord of Heaven,
For His love endures forever.

CHORUS:
And we sing hallelujah. Hallelujah
Hallelujah to my King.
