Hope for the Broken

Everyone wants to be lost in the moment
Turning your back from the pain
Blind to the hurting of those who are near you
And finding something to blame
When there’s no one to turn to
With the pain that’s inside you
Your heart can’t find its way home
He says, “Child, you are mine and I won’t let you go”

There is hope for the broken
And faith for the hurting
Rest for the weary and weak
There is love for the child
Who’s lost and forgotten
And grace to set them all free

We all have our moments of heartbreak in life
They’re thrown at us out of the blue
It’s moments like that when you realize you’re lucky
‘Cause Someone’s there pulling you through
There’s a Light at the end
Of this tunnel we’re running through
Hope for our hearts to find home
He says, “Child, you are mine and I won’t let you go”

There is hope for the broken
And faith for the hurting
Rest for the weary and weak
There is love for the child
Who’s lost and forgotten
And grace to set them all free

There’s a Light at the end of this tunnel
There’s a hope for our hearts to find home
When you’re lost in the pain and destruction
He says, “I won’t let you go”

There is hope for the broken
And faith for the hurting
Rest for the weary and weak
There is love for the child
Who’s lost and forgotten
And grace to set them all free

Away

What do you do when they’ve given up again
What do you do when they’ve said goodbye for the last time
What do you do when you’re left in their dust
What do you do

When you lose somebody you can’t bear to live without
You keep falling to pieces ‘cause they have left you out
They walk away, say that it is over
They’re sorry but they don’t care enough to stay
They keep pushing you away

They walk all over, leave nothing behind
You can’t stand to look at them but they never leave your mind
You tried to tell them everything, begged them to stay
They looked you in the eyes and then turned and walked away

When you lose somebody you can’t bear to live without
You keep falling to pieces ‘cause they have left you out
They walk away, say that it is over
They’re sorry but they don’t care enough to stay
They keep pushing you away

You were on your knees for them
Praying that they would not give up on you
They left you there
Without a care
Where they were leaving you
Where do you go when you’re walking on alone
Now You’re my only hope

When you lose somebody you can’t bear to live without
You keep falling to pieces ‘cause they have left you out
They walk away, say that it is over
They’re sorry but they don’t care enough to stay
They keep pushing you away

Have you ever wondered how just 26 letters
Can say so very many things?
Have you ever written, spoken, even mentioned
Something you wish you’d rethought

Sometimes we break the rules with our words
Bringing ourselves down with them
As my intentions crumble and crack
I wonder if just maybe

Could just three words have changed my fate?
Maybe three words could have rearranged my feelings
If you move a couple letters and change one little phrase
Maybe three words could have saved my heart from your...

Words are so easy to manipulate
Which makes them so easy to disguise and hide the truth
So how will we ever know what you
Truly wanted to say?

How can I know what those words truly meant?
With your blurred motives and our misunderstandings
Its hard for me to clarify your vague descriptions

Could just three words have changed my fate?
Maybe three words could have rearranged my feelings
If you move a couple letters and change one little phrase
Maybe three words could have saved my heart

Sometimes we break the rules with our words
Bringing ourselves down with them
As my intentions crumble and crack
I wonder if just maybe

Could just three words have changed my fate?
Maybe three words could have rearranged my feelings
If you move a couple letters and change one little phrase
Maybe three words could have saved my heart from your

Without the Dark

There is no life without a heartbeat
There is no journey without a start
There is no answer without a question
There is no sunlight without the dark
We walk these fragile lines
But we can’t see through time

The clock ticks away at the beat of our heart
We open our eyes and we see only dark
Dawn comes around only after the night
The victory comes only after the fight

There is no dark place that You don’t see
Nowhere I am that You won’t be
There is no mountain that You can’t move
And to my faithless heart You prove
You are the only Light
Only You can see through time

The clock ticks away at the beat of our heart
We open our eyes and we see only dark
Dawn comes around only after the night
The victory comes only after the fight

You see all my flaws
You hold all the world in Your hands
You see all my dreams
I know Who’s holding me

The clock ticks away at the beat of our heart
We open our eyes and we see only dark
Dawn comes around only after the night
The victory comes only after the fight
