Lyrics

Broke

Written By: Kye Kye

To repeat what I’ve done in the past won’t change me I broke when you told me
I could try all the time
but my ways won’t change me
We tried this, but we failed
we know this but we’re too blind to see that there is freedom within me
your life brought light for all to see
When I was lost so I, so I thought that I was searching all alone like I was lost so I didn’t know what I was keeping all along
I knew from the moment my mistakes all stood out your light’s my only safety
oh all the times that I didn’t look your way
look what I was missing lord you fill in every space that I replaced instead of you
Revived us, we will sing
restored us, you are the source to breathe
ignite us to a need to bury everything I never want to be

Introduce Myself

Written By: Kye Kye

Introduce myself, when I saw your heart
to death I died I don’t want loss to be my guide took me in yourself, so in your eyes I’m not flawed I’m new in life
Love and sight is what you granted trust inside so we believe
I lay outside this very night
to dream of what you’ve done for me
Bliss, it’s not what I’ve done
it’s you that died and made loss so full of life friend, is it love I hear?
to have your words in my mind, it’s so clear
Hands, is it worth my work?
if it’s not with your eyes, what is it worth?
love, is it worth my time?
cause if it’s not from your heart it’s from my mind

Went About

Written By: Kye Kye

Touch, a breathing witness
grasp, the end from the beginning
key to bind and bound
to mend all the broken hearts surrounding us
Watch it grow, the word, fights from the ground to breathe a heart, that runs, to free all because of
Oh unbreakable love soothing light created from this
Rush I know it’s true
fire power
you showed what I could do signs and wonders
love it pushes through we’re no longer
love it rushes through
fear dies under
Speak, words believing
hold, the end from the beginning
trust a trail unseen
to see all the broken hearts surrounding us
Watch it grow, the word, fights from the ground to breathe a heart, that runs, to free all because of

Sleeper

Written By: Kye Kye

“Brother, I am old”, he says, old
lying on the floor with no confidence fighting for the right to be told
that everything is well when you’re all alone
Way back way back
the time that they said goodbye lonely lonely
always the same routine
hide them hide them
21 years this bad
burn them burn them
would you forget all that
Sleeper, he awakes when he knows
when something that is said, it is said for real
a heart it never fights when it’s told
“No matter what was done, you are always loved.”

Knowing This

Written By: Kye Kye

Perfect father
you have revealed my heart’s cover under such radiant lights
Perfect lover
you have pierced my fear asunder sealed flawless
Dearest you’ve painted me, what was I waiting for?
the colors are all I see
it was all there before
this light is all I see you never lost me, love
Fall, how it fell from me
scathed oh so permanently
sunk, how it sank from me
deep, where it once tried taking me words, they were words just to be breath but now they sing for you
