Lyrics

ALL WE WANT

Written By: Robertson/Kilby

Secrets all around me. Nothing is for sure.
A million different faces longing for a cure.
Lost in all the questions they beg us to repeat
as we fall down at your feet.

CHORUS
All we want is to know.

Crying out for mercy; trying to explain
How a grace comes from within you that cannot be contained
and the darkness left within us comes into the light
as we look into your eyes.

BRIDGE
It's not so bad, not so bad anymore.

TORN

Written By: Kilby

Misery lays alone;
I've been lying to myself and now I just don't know.
Take it as it goes.
But I'm feeling so lost for a place I've called my home.

CHORUS
Where do I begin? Where do I end?
I seem to have torn myself in two.
Leave the past behind; kiss it all goodbye
and try to find a place I can call my own.
Where I can fall asleep and see you in my dreams
and know that you will always be with me.
Lead me down the road; show me where to go.
I've got to find a place I can call my own.

Standing in the rain.
I've been crying out for help but nobody came.
So I walk alone
and the bitterness of loneliness has far surpassed the cold.

Night turns to day.
I can see the world in brand new ways.
Sunshine on my face.
I have learned a thing or two and even I have changed.

LETTING GO

Written By: Robertson/Kilby

Take my heart; I'm letting go.
All you are; just make it known.
Take my fears; my disbelief
'til all you are is all I need.

CHORUS
You give to me everything
that I will ever need.
Wherever you go, I will know
'cuz you are there holding me.

A sinner's heart; I'm lost, I'm found.
I'm at your feet where love abounds.

BRIDGE
Break down my pride and take me farther
when everything comes at me harder.
