Where We Belong

Are we afraid of what people say, what they think about us?
This is the way of cynical hearts learning to trust
Everyone is scared of feeling out of place

(Chorus)
Breakaway the walls
Carry us to where we belong
Make a way for us to follow grace so we can love everyone
the same

Can I learn to drop my guard and show someone my heart?
Break the vice of stereotypes that keep us apart
I'm no stranger to the feelings of being insecure and out of place

(Chorus)
Possibilities

Remember the day when we ran away
And we saw the world for the first time?
We drove through the night to those big city lights
And we knew that we could do anything
Anything at all

(Chorus)
We don't have to live memories
Time can turn our dreams to reality
Oh, the possibilities

Now is the time to make up our minds
And live like this is the last day
That we have a chance to put it on the line
And run away to the best time of our lives

'Cause I still believe that we can do anything

(Chorus)

Walk through the doorway to the great unknown
This is the moment

(Chorus)
Thank You

There are new horizons with colors that I've never seen
The sky is filled with graces, since You have carried me
I felt so far beyond Your reach, but You gave everything for me
I was lost but then You rescued my life

(Chorus)
Why in the world did you come after me?
Thank You, thank You
Words aren't enough, but for now I can say
Thank You, thank You

There is hope rising 'cause You have strength I've never seen
And Your eyes are shining, 'cause You shed tears for me
I was miles from dry land, but You gave everything You had
I can't understand a love of this kind

(Chorus)

I could find other lines that You haven't heard spoken over and over again
And I have tried every way, but I keep landing on that simple phrase
So I'll keep singing "thank You"

(Chorus)
We're Trying

There's a familiar progression to the similar live that we all lead
We're trying hard to become someone we can't be
You won't find grace without honesty

Everyone wants reality, so here it is: I believe that nobody is good, nobody is good

We are liars and thieves, we're destroying the peace
But we're trying, we're trying, we're trying

It's the same regression to the lives that we all lead
Everyone makes mistakes, but we find grace
We believe that there's redemption

If you want reality, then here it is: I believe that nobody is good, nobody is good

We are liars and thieves, we're destroying the peace
But we're trying, we're trying, we're trying

There is nothing in our blood that makes the heart beat strong enough
Apart from grace, apart from love
I believe in grace
I believe with love that we can do good, we can do good
We can do good, we can do good

We are liars and thieves, we're destroying the peace
But we're trying, we're trying, we're trying
lyrics
I'm Not Alright

If weakness is a wound
That no one wants to speak of
Then "cool" is just how far we have to fall

I am not immune
I only want to be loved
But I feel safe behind the firewall

Can I lose my need to impress?
If you want the truth, I need to confess

(Chorus)
I'm not alright
I'm broken inside
And all I go through
It leads me to You

Burn away the pride
Bring me to my weakness
Until everything I hide behind is gone

And when I'm open wide
With nothing left to cling to
Only You are there to lead me on

Honestly, I'm not that strong

(Chorus)

And I move
And I move
And I move
Closer to You

(Chorus)

I'm not alright... that's why I need You

Eloquent

I'm as eloquent as an elephant
I'm as headstrong as the Mighty King Kong
On a rampage throwing airplanes
I can't believe you haven't run away

I am difficult, argumentative
I'm as thick skulled as the dinosaur bones
On a display, in a glass case
I can't believe You haven't run away

(Chorus)
It must be different through Your eyes
'Cause You look at me like it's the first time
You've ever seen my face

I'm preoccupied with a crowded mind
I get off track like a train rolling back to the future
Never too sure who'll be where when I come back around
But I'm finding out

(Chorus)

Would I see You the way that You see me
I don't understand how well You see me

(Chorus)
Fly

When last place is where I've been
It's hard to find the strength to start again
Sometimes it seems like I can never win

I'm held back by the weight of a crowd
Can't move to find my way out
You give me faith to get my feet off the ground
'Cause it's not easy

(Chorus)
Trying to fly against the wind
When I keep on falling back to where I've been
Start over again

I'm overwhelmed when there's too much
Hiding the view to all that You've done
I step back to see how far we've come
And You're always with me (when I'm)

(Chorus)

When last place is where I've been
You give me what I need to start again

Trying to fly against the wind
But I keep on falling back to where I've been
And I'm trying to fly against the wind
And You keep on coming back for me again, over and over again
The Face of Love

I've seen Your face on stained glass, in colored light
In pictures of You looking to the sky
You've been portrayed a thousand different ways
But my heart can see You better than my eyes
'Cause it's love that paints the portrait of Your life

(Chorus)
The face of love
The face of love
You look more like love everyday

I've read Your words in the pages of your life
And I've imagined what You were like
I may not know the shape of your face
But I can feel Your heart changing mine
And Your love still proves that You've alive

(Chorus)

You are the face that changed the whole world
No one too lost for You to love
No one too low for You to save
So give us the grace to change the world
No one too lost for me to love
No one too low for me to serve

Let us see...
Let us be Your face

(Chorus)
Don't Give Up

I heard you say you would love for a lifetime
Now you complain a lifetime just doesn't feel right
For you
Another casualty of casual love
Another soul out of place, a heart that gave up

Why do we break the promises we make?
Are we living for ourselves?

(Chorus)
Don't give up on love and throw it all away
Don't give up on love and let it fall away
When did it become so easy to run from your pain?
Don't give up on love and throw it all away

I heard you say you can't change a stubborn heart
I can relate 'cause that's how I feel when I talk with you

Why should it take losing everything
To realize it might be time to change?

(Chorus)

Your restless heart won't win 'cause you take but you don't give
And you'll keep moving on until you learn what love is

(Chorus)
Magnetic

How do we explain the source of life
That runs within these veins and keeps my heart in time?
You are the music and I'm drawn in
Caught in the movement, I'm letting go, I can't resist

(Chorus)
'CauseYou're magnetic
I can't help it... I'm stuck on You
There's something magic in the way that You love me
I'm stuck on You

I know I have the freedom to decide
You don't make me love You
I just can't deny the force of gravity
And You are the ground that keeps me standing here with You

(Chorus)

You're magnetic, I can't help it
I'm letting go of all control
Can't deny it, I won't fight it
'Cause no matter what I do I'm drawn to You

(Chorus)
Benjamin

Rain falls outside
I think the sky must know what's happening tonight
Children born while fathers die
It's that circle of life that we all live in time

We've been friends for a long, long time
So if you can't talk, just cry
And know that we will talk on the other side

It's bitter cold outside
But the sun still shines 'cause we can feel it
Benjamin, you mark the life that's been left behind
We see him in your eyes

And we will be friends for a long, long time
So until you can talk, just cry
And know that we will talk for the rest of our lives

He gives and He takes, and it makes us strong
When He gives, He takes, and it makes us strong
When He gives and He takes, and it makes us strong
When He gives, He takes, and it makes us stronger

We will be friends for a long, long time
So until you can talk, just cry
And know that we will talk for the rest of our lives

Just know that we'll be friends for the rest of our lives
