Lyrics

Crazy Idea

Written By: Kristi Bridges

Crazy Idea
I see every day extraordinary things
It’s easy to believe
2 tons of steel—ooh, and a pair of wings
Can stand on air and get me some place I’ve never seen

Cured by poison, call it chemotherapy
But grace we don’t understand
To think people tried to save mankind
From the God in a body Who came to deliver man

But the crazy idea that God came to set me free
Is so hard to wrap my mind around
But it burns inside of me----ooh, inside of me

I talk to people in places I’ve never been
How do I know they are real?
But these changes that God’s made inside of me
It’s the power of forgiveness and love that I feel

Yeah, the crazy idea that God came to set me free
Is so hard to wrap my mind around
But it burns inside of me----ooh, inside of me

Always inventin’ brand new ways of doing things
You know we’re using things God already set it up
So much we don’t know, but we’re still discovering
The One who gives the life that won’t rust and won’t corrupt

Yeah, the crazy idea that God came to set me free
Is so hard to wrap my mind around
But it burns, it burns
The amazing idea that God came to set me free
Is so hard to wrap my mind around
But it burns inside of me----ooh, inside of me

Step Back

Written By: Kristi Bridges

You came alongside of me
And I felt the shadow, but blamed the sun
You whispered things that were halfway true
And my day was sucked of all of its fun
You said, where you goin’?
Poor little child, don’t know the way
Come over here, but when I reached for your map
My hand touched the skin of a snake

Step back! I know you
Who you think you’re foolin’—I have the mind of Christ
Know where I’m goin’
I feel the sunshine even when I don’t see the light

I don’t hear you when you speak to me
But you tell me all the things I’ve done wrong
All my weaknesses, insecurities
And the fear that tries to quiet my song
My God said, “Don’t you be afraid,
My baby girl won’t suffer shame
Come over here, and when I climb in His lap
I got the power to say, “GO BACK (FROM) WHERE YOU CAME”

Step back! I know you
Who you think you’re foolin’—I have the mind of Christ
Know where I’m goin’
I feel the sunshine even when I don’t see the light

Do not be afraid; you will not suffer shame
Do not fear disgrace; you won’t be humiliated
You’ll forget the shame of your youth
And rejection’s pain will fade in the fullness of truth

Munchies for the Masses

Written By: Kristi Bridges

Dig that funky hair, I’m so glad I’m here
Ev’n though he’s rockin’ a chrome top, keeps that tail growin’ nonstop
She’s dolled up in braids, thirty different shades
But what they’ve got in common
A big ol’ tub o’ Ramen ™

Takin’ noodle soup to the people
Puttin’ faith to feet
Sharin’ a little Jesus

Oooh, it’s not just Munchies for the Masses
We’re wearin’ the face of Jesus
Oooh, we’re not just tryin’ to make you like us
We want to bring you hope

Jasen’s washing hands, patiently they stand
That girl looks up in surprise, her mouthful of sanitizer
Coco’s got a prayer, we all want to share
Coz you know there’s more than a bowl there’s salvation for the soul

Takin’ noodle soup to the people
Puttin’ faith to feet
Sharin’ a little Jesus

Oooh, it’s not just Munchies for the Masses
We’re bringing the face of Jesus
Oooh, we’re not just tryin’ to make you like us
We want to bring you hope

I’m so glad I’m here, I’m so glad I’m here
‘Coz it’s not just food for the body,
It’s not just hope for the soul
Jesus Christ came to make us whole
It’s not just bread and drink,
It’s not just spiritual things
Jesus Came to give us life, that’s why we sing

Oooh, it’s not just Munchies for the Masses
We’re bringing the face of Jesus
Oooh, we’re not just tryin’ to make you like us
We want to bring you hope

Whitewater

Written By: Kristi Bridges/Goliath Down

I don’t want anything that makes feel unsatisfied
Don’t wanna flip the switch to a craving that makes me want to die
I’ve been there before
In the centrifugal force
That held me tight to the wall
And made me watch while all the hopes I held inside
Were flung wide into the sky

Gone are the days
You saved me from the endless spiral
Gone is the haze
I see the trap and walk on by
I recognize the lies
To You I lift my eyes
My hope is on the rise—yeah!

And if I fall, I call on You--You answer with the voice of truth
I have stopped resisting and started to flow in the direction that You move
I’ve collected debris
In this puddle of me
But when Your Spirit flows
I can let it go in a whitewater rush of hope
Hanging for the ride, yeah, I’m alive

Shoulder

Written By: Kristi Bridges/Goliath Down

In the dark, I can’t see Your face
Just give me Your shoulder
My legs are too tired
To hold me up
I feel so much older

A voice inside me
Asks who I was trying to be
But You told me
And I believe

‘Coz even when it seems
I only saw it on TV
A fictional reality
I know You touched me
When the memory
Is only words, a story
It is mine
And I am Yours
And I believe

I ride the waves of Your solid grace
And my weak emotions
Your arms don’t get tired
You hold me up
With steady devotion

You’ve been beside me
When I thought it was only me
Looking back I see
And I believe

Coz even when it seems
That nobody really knows me
And even I can’t love me
I know You touched me
When the memory
Is only words, a story
It is mine
And I am Yours
And I believe
You are mine
And I am Yours
And I believe
