lyrics
Better Than This

It starts in your heart
And it changes the rhythm of your life
It starts with a spark
And it turns to a fire burning bright
Out of the darkness
You feel the joy inside

Hey, yeah

Nothing feels better than this
When the sun comes shining in
It's a new day, you're wide awake
And you feel alive again

Hey, yeah
Hey, yeah

It burns deep inside
Changes your world one day at a time
It grows in your soul
And it reaches the places you thought you could hide
Joy makes you shout into the silence
Makes you want to dance in the hardest times

Hey, yeah

(Chorus)
Nothing feels better than this
When the sun comes shining in
It's a new day, you're wide awake
And you feel alive again
Oh, nothing feels better than this
The chance to start again
It's a new day and you just can't wait
'Cause nothing feels better
Nothing feels better than this

There are gonna be days
When you wanna give in
But you can't give in
You can't give up
There's gonna be days
Where you just can't win
And you need something
To pick you up
It's more than enough
When you've got love inside

Hey, yeah
Hey, yeah
Hey, yeah
Hey, yeah

(Chorus)

Hey, yeah

One Of Those Things

I'm gonna tell you why we keep on coming back
To the same old set of tired and rusty tracks
Dreams fade and wither over time
But you know when you're born for something in this life
And I'm gonna tell you why we keep on keeping on
'Cause a song was made for us and us for a song
It knocks on the door of your heart and you can't deny
But to open up and let it inside

(Chorus)
So I sing at the top of my lungs
Raise my hands and get caught up
It's just one of those things you can't run away from
(One of those things you can't run away from)
One of those things you can't run away from

I'm gonna tell you why we keep on singing about
Love and faith in the things that so many people doubt
Oh, there's a fire in us that burns from the inside out
And we don't need to water it down

(Chorus)

Commitment

It's no mystery
What the difference is
Between a love that lasts
And one that's caving in
It takes more than a feeling
If you want to survive
In a world that blurs the lines
Between wrong and right
Trades true love for a compromise

Oh, I want to finish
The life we've started
I want to be two old beautiful souls
Who stayed with it
And in those times our feelings fade
I'm gonna give you the one thing
That makes all the difference
Commitment

Some people say you shouldn't have to change
That somebody should love me exactly the way I am
And maybe it's true but I'll do whatever it takes
To help you realize that I'm in for life
To lift you up and lay down my pride

'Cause I want to finish
The life we've started
I want to be two old beautiful souls
Who stayed with it
And in those times our feelings fade
I'm gonna give you the one thing
That makes all the difference
You have my commitment

I'm with you through any kind of weather
I'm with you sunny days or disaster
I still do and it's never gonna matter
What we're going through 'cause we're in this together

And I want to finish the way we started
Just two broken souls clinging on to Jesus
We've seen His faithfulness and grace
And I want to love you that way

Oh, I want to finish
The life we've started
I want to be two old beautiful souls
Who stayed with it
And in those times our feelings fade
I'm gonna give you the one thing
That makes all the difference
Commitment
You have my commitment

Nothing Between

I'm miles away
From seeing the story
You're writing
When You give and You take
It's hard to embrace Your timing
When I'm watching the walls
Burn to the ground around me
I just want to know what it is
You're trying to show me

(Chorus)
I will walk through the fires of life
I will wait in the darkest of nights
I will follow You into the fight
If that's where You lead me
I don't know what You want me to see
But I know where You want me to be
Close to You
Nothing between

I'm starting to see
Why this is called the narrow road
'Cause if I want to walk this way
Oh, I've got to stay close
I'd leave anything in the fire
To bring us together
I want nothing between
My soul and my Savior

(Chorus)

If it comes between You and me
Let it burn 'cause You're all I need
You're all I need

(Chorus)

I want nothing between
My soul and my Savior
Nothing between

Run

Wake up, oh my soul
You've been sleeping far too long
So wake up, oh my soul
Stand up and be known
You've been hiding far too long
Just stand up and be known

(Chorus)
You gotta run, run, run
Into the arms
You've gotta run, run, run
Into the arms
You've gotta run, run, run
Into the arms of Love

There's only one way to find your help
One place to lose yourself
One way to find your help
So reach out for your hope
Let these arms hold you close
Reach out for your hope

(Chorus)

Don't lose heart when you're feeling low
When the road looks long and you don't know
If you have the strength to make it home
You're not on your own

(Chorus)

Run
On Our Own

Just to know who You are
To find a way into Your arms
From the wreckage we are reaching
Out of silence we are singing

We cannot make it on our own
We need You everywhere we go

To be seen through Your eyes
To have You here on our side
By Your presence You have healed us
To Your promise You will lead us

(Chorus)
We cannot make it on our own
We need You everywhere we go
You are the hope of so much more
Jesus, without You
We cannot make it on our own

We've gotta keep our eyes on true hope
Set our hearts on a heavenly home

(Chorus)

We've gotta keep our eyes on true hope
Set our hearts on a heavenly home

Promises

Sometimes it's hard to keep believing
In what you can't see
That everything happens for a reason
Even the worst life brings
If you're reaching for an answer
And you don't know what to pray
Just open up the pages
Let His Word be your strength

(Chorus)
And hold on to the promises (hold tight)
Hold on to the promises (alright)
Jesus is alive so hold tight
Hold on to the promises

All things work for the good
Of those who love God
He holds back nothing that will heal you
Not even His own Son
His love is everlasting
His faithfulness unending
Oh, if God is for us who can be against us
So if you feel weak

(Chorus)

Neither life, nor death
Could separate us
From the eternal love
Of our God who saves us

(Chorus)

Neither life, nor death
Could separate us
From the eternal love
Of our God who saves us

Pray

I bow my head to pray
I don't know what to say
I'm not sure how to fix
The things I'm dealing with
I'm in a desperate place
I need to share the weight
But I just don't know how
To let it all pour out

And though I'm silent
My heart is crying
'Cause I was made
To come to You

(Chorus)
So I pray
God, I need you
More than words can say
Right here in this moment
You know my heart
You know my need
You know every part of me
So even if it's just to speak Your name
I'm gonna pray

I've failed to find the time
But You've been calling out
I let the days go by
As if I could live without
But it's gotta be here and now
I won't be pulled away
'Cause it's just You and I
So let the world around us fade

(Chorus)

Father, will You meet me here right now
Father, I surrender, lay it down
Father, and every time I close my eyes
I know that I was made to lift my hands and pray
I lift my hands and pray

You know my heart
You know my need
And every single part of me
So even if it's just to speak Your name
I'm gonna pray

You know my heart
You know my need
You know every part of me
More than words
You want my life
Take it as an offering

We Will Never Give Up

We will not lose heart
We will not lose hope
When all we see is fading
We'll trust in what we know
We will never give up

Pressed on every side
Praying for escape
We can see the answer
That You're the only way
We will never give up

(Chorus)
We will fix our eyes on the One who lasts forever
We will hold on tight to the only real treasure
We will not lose heart
We will not lose hope
We will give our lives to the One who will last forever

We were born into weakness
Fragile by design
So we hold on to Jesus
With everything inside
We will never give up

(Chorus)

Greater is the One in us
We will never give up
In the power of the risen Son
We will never give up
We will never give up

(Chorus)

Keep Me Young

Feels like I've seen everything out there
But next to You nothing compares
We're all looking for love
To catch that breath of new life

You're the fountain everyone's after
The promise of love forever
Time slips away
But You're holding me
So it's all right

(Chorus)
There's nothing more sure than this romance
Nothing better than my heart in Your hands
Who can keep me from a love that lasts
No one can

You keep me young
You keep me young
You keep me young
Under an old sun

Days go by fast as lightning
Life is short
But I can't fight it
So I lean into You
And Your hope burns through this old life

(Chorus)

You keep me young
You keep me young
You keep me young
Yeah, You're the only One

When I'm with You
There's nothing better
'Cause You're all that matters

(Chorus)

You keep me young
You keep me young
You keep me young
Yeah, You're the only One

Picture Of Grace

Took us thirty some years to see the light
It took a whole lot of tears and sleepless nights
It took the pain of wondering why, wondering why, oh why
But now I see every tear we've cried
As a drop of purpose in the sea of life
And as the water washes over you and I
I can see something holy made of two broken lives

'Cause we believe in
Something bigger than our own lives
We'll keep reaching
For Someone who's stronger than you and I

And I look back and marvel at the day
When I thought our world would be a perfect place
But now we see through a shattered frame
There's nothing more perfect than the picture of Grace
We can finally see the picture of Grace

(Chorus)
'Cause we believe in
Something bigger than our own lives
We'll keep reaching
For Someone who's stronger than you and I
We need a Savior
The One who can heal what is broken tonight
Just one touch
Just one word could set everything right

We need a miracle, we need a miracle
Take what is weak and fill it with life
We need a miracle, we need a miracle
Take this water and turn it to wine

(Chorus)

You Are God

Your ways are higher than
Anyone could understand
Your thoughts run deeper
You are God
You saved us not because of
Anything that we have done
But only by Your mercy
And Your great love

(Chorus)
You are God, You are God, You are God
You are God, You are God, You are God
Not mine, but Your will be done
Not mine, but Your kingdom come
You are God, You are God, You are God

The plans of the heart belong to man
But the outcome is in Your hands
Without You nothing stands
You are God
You hold the beginning and end
You know every where and when
Without You nothing would have ever been

(Chorus)

With only a word
Heaven and Earth were set into place
Out of the dirt
You brought us all alive and awake
When we fell dead in our sins looking for love
You already made the Way

'Cause You are God, You are God, You are God
You are God, You are God, You are God

(Chorus)
