Lyrics

DO WHATCHA GOTTA DO

Written By: Tiffany Thurston

VERSE 1
I don’t wanna feel like I’m far from You
I don’t wanna live the way I used to
Don’t understand my ways, but I’m gonna change
Please come into my heart, can You rearrange

CHORUS
Every single thought, Every single fault
Everything I am, Everything I’m not
All I wanna be, All that I can see
Oh, change my life, Change me
I just wanna live, Every single breathe
Giving You my all, Put me to the test
Oh, I’m here for you, I’m here for you, Do whatcha gotta do

VERSE 2
I know I have my faults, and I can live with that
Cause faults are helping me, to come right back
And take a different stance, in everything I do
See, I still need the King, to help me through

CHORUS
Every single thought, Every single fault
Everything I am, Everything I’m not
All I wanna be, All that I can see
Oh, change my life, Change me
I just wanna live, Every single breathe
Giving You my all, Put me to the test
Oh, I’m here for you, I’m here for you, Do whatcha gotta do

BRIDGE
Oh Lord, do whatcha gotta do…
Oh Lord, You’re the only One Lord
I’m here for You
Ooh…

CHORUS

Oh, I’m here for you, I’m here for you, Do whatcha gotta do

ALL I REALLY NEEDED

Written By: Tiffany Thurston

VESRE 1
I, I wanna run away
To another place
That’s far from here
Here, I am misunderstood
I never thought I would
Encounter this fear

Of going to a place unknown
Then finding it is not my home
I look around and ask myself
Where, where am I supposed to be

CHORUS
Then I realized
When I opened my eyes
That all that I was missing was You
I never saw before
Until I left You for a piece of more
But what I thought I needed wasn’t true
Cause all I really needed was You

VERSE 2
I, can’t think of a better day
To finally say
“I know I was wrong”
Will, will please take me back
Forgive me for what I lack
Cause this road has been long

But in the midst of all that I have done
I am thankful for the rising sun
I am learning more, what life’s about
Now, now I’ll never walk alone

CHORUS
Cause I realized
When I opened up my eyes
That all that I was missing was You
I never saw before
Until I left You for a piece of more
But what I thought I needed wasn’t true
Cause all I really needed was You

BRIDGE
There’s no other place
There’s no other face
Like Yours
There’s no other sound
There’s no other ground
Like Yours

CHORUS
Now I realize
When I open my eyes
All that I was missing was You
I never saw before
Until I left You for a piece of more
But what I thought I needed wasn’t true
Cause all I really needed was You

CHORUS
Now I realize
When I open my eyes
All that I was missing was You
I never saw before
Until I left You for a piece of more
But what I thought I needed wasn’t true
Cause all I really needed was You

FREEWAY

Written By: Tiffany Thurston

VERSE 1
So many ways to go
So many was to turn
With all the roads that we can choose
There so much we can learn
Sometimes we’re moving fast
Sometimes we’re moving slow
It really doesn’t matter
If we know where we want to go

CHORUS
It’s a freeway
With the choices that we make
And the turns that we must take
It’s a freeway
It’s really up to you
Where you’re headed to

VERSE 2
If you take a left
When you meant to take a right
You can start again
Make a turn at the next light
And you are not alone
‘Cause we all will make mistakes
Don’t let it bother you
Just remember the road to take

CHORUS
Down that freeway
Whatever choices that you make
That will be the road you take
Down that freeway
Oh, it’s really up to you
Where you’re headed to

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK
La, la, la…

CHORUS
Down that freeway
Whatever choices that you make
That will be the road you take
Down that freeway
Oh, it’s really up to you
Where you’re headed to

OUTRO (8 bars)
You can listen music as you go
Talk to a friend, turn the music down low
Or you can look at all the beautiful sites
Don’t turn left, you gotta turn right

CHORUS
Down that freeway
Whatever choices that you make
That will be the road you take
Down that freeway
Oh, it’s really up to you
Where you’re headed to

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK
La, la, la…
