I’m here now,
In one piece still,
In a quiet place,

You see me,
In my weakness,
As a wayward case,

Can I change?
Can I change?

I love you,
Even if I burn,
If I’m not enough,

Cause I’m breathin,
And you gave me that,
I was nothin yet,

Then it changed,
I came cryin’ in,

I don’t deserve a blink,
And I didn’t earn a single thing,
And yet I’m here to laugh and sing,
It’s true,

Funny how I still forget,
That I’m not really running this,
Just trying to keep my left foot steps with you,

Can I have peace,
I’m Holding out my hands,
Branch of olive,

If it’s not now,
Is there lay away?
All I have to give.

I will wait,
For my change,

Love’s a thing we think we get,
But you’re the one who does it best,
And truth is at the Heart of it,


If I could tell the world one thing,
To boil it down to make you think,
I wouldn’t be the guy for that,
My words would fail and all fall flat,
And short of what’s already written
down for minds and hearts and eyes
that search it out and face it down
and build a house on solid ground,
And walk with truth and don’t give up,
not even when it seems too much to sacrifice,
it’s nothing
no it’s nothing
in the light of God,

You see me.
