Looked down from a broken sky
Traced out by the city lights
My world from a mile high
Best seat in the house tonight

Touched down on the cold black tar
Hold on for the sudden stop
Breathe in the familiar shock
Of confusion and chaos

All those people going somewhere
Why have I never cared?

Give me Your eyes for just one second
Give me Your eyes so I can see
Everything that I keep missing
Give me Your love for humanity

Give me Your arms for the broken hearted
The ones that are far beyond my reach?
Give me Your heart for the one's forgotten
Give me Your eyes so I can see
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Step out on a busy street
See a girl and our eyes meet
Does her best to smile at me
To hide what's underneath

There's a man just to her right
Black suit and a bright red tie
Too ashamed to tell his wife
He's out of work, he's buying time

All those people going somewhere
Why have I never cared?

Give me Your eyes for just one second
Give me Your eyes so I can see
Everything that I keep missing
Give me Your love for humanity

Give me Your arms for the broken hearted
The ones that are far beyond my reach?
Give me Your heart for the one's forgotten
Give me Your eyes so I can see
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I've been there a million times
A couple of million eyes just moving past me by
I swear I never thought that I was wrong

Well, I want a second glance
So give me a second chance
To see the way You see the people all alone

Give me Your eyes for just one second
Give me Your eyes so I can see
Everything that I keep missing
Give me Your love for humanity

Give me Your arms for the broken hearted
The ones that are far beyond my reach?
Give me Your heart for the one's forgotten
Give me Your eyes so I can see

Give me Your eyes for just one second
Give me Your eyes so I can see
Everything that I keep missing
That I keep missing

Give me Your arms for the broken hearted
The ones that are far beyond my reach?
Give me Your heart for the one's forgotten
Give me Your eyes so I can see
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I was born in Tennessee
Late July humidity
Doctor said I was lucky to be alive

I've been trouble since the day that I got here
Trouble till the day that I disappear
That'll be the day that I finally get it right

There is hope for me yet
Because God won't forget
All the plans he's made for me
I have to wait and see
He's not finished with me yet

I never really was that good in school
I talked too much, broke the rules
Teacher thought I was hopeless fool alright

I don't know how but I made it through
It's one of those things that you've gotta do
But I always had a knack for telling the truth

Chorus

Still wondering why I'm here
Still wrestling with my fear
But oh, He's up to something
And the farther on I go
I've seen enough to know
That I'm, not here for nothing
He's up to something

So now's my time to be a man
Follow my heart as far as I can
No telling where I'm ending up tonight
I never slow down or so it seems
But singing my heart it's one of my dreams
All I gotta do is hold on tight

Chorus

. . .


I can't walk without watching where I'm going
I can't speak without knowing what to say
I can't love and have any hesitation
Cause I know that you don't work that way

I can't reach without something to offer
I can't come now I am so ashamed
I can't hold out from you any longer
Cause I know that you don't work that way

I'm not gonna fight you anymore
Not gonna try to lock the door
You took your life and gave me yours
There's no reason why
I shouldn't trust you with mine

It's never easy changing my direction
It's so unnatural to loosen up my grip
Are you growing weary of all my good intentions
Cause I know that You don't work that way

Chorus

Somedays
This wait upon my shoulder
Is my shame
I know I should know better
Cause you say
That I must now surrender
There's no other way

. . .


My train pulled in to Waterloo
Found myself wishing you were here with me in London
Standing on the river Thames
Taking photographs of Parliament and old Big Ben is ringing

You know, it's everything that I imagined it would be
I had no idea that it would feel so empty

Where are you tonight while I stand here and cry?
Watching double-decker buses pass me by
And to tell you the truth, it's all that I can do
To keep from jumping on a plane that's headed home to you

I took a stroll down Abbey Road, tried to peek inside the studios
And somewhere along the way, I bought you flowers
And a parking map of the underground
'Cause you and I both know I get turned around
I'm so lost without you

Though it's everything that I imagined it would be
I had no idea that it would feel so empty

Where are you tonight while I stand here and cry?
Watching double-decker buses pass me by
And to tell you the truth, it's all that I can do
To keep from jumping on a plane

Six long nights and seven days
Across the pond back to the States, I can't wait

Where are you tonight while I stand here and cry?
Watching all the black umbrellas pass me by
And to tell you the truth, it's all that I can do
To keep from jumping on a plane
So I'm jumping on a plane headed home to you

. . .


You want to sound off but you can't find the words to
Nothing makes sense in the way that it used to
Can't find the plus in the positive thinking
The well's run dry and you're not done drinking

Clouds start coming and the sky will fall
Clock ticks back from the bedroom wall
Now you're breathing
Just to make it through the night

All you need is the sunrise
Just a moment of dawn
If you're lost in the twilight
Close your eyes and move on

When you're tired in the waiting
Even though it's going to take you
A little more time, just a little more time
The sun's going to find you

Holding your days like a stack of paper
And you're chasing the wind as the pages scatter
You can save a few but you can't get them all back
So get up fast with your heart intact

Find yourself on the very edge
Lying awake in an empty bed
Now you're breathing
Just to make it through the night

All you need is the sunrise
Just a moment of dawn
If you're lost in the twilight
Close your eyes and move on

When you're tired in the waiting
Even though it's going to take you
A little more time, just a little more time
The sun's going to find you

Just a little more time
The sun's going to find you

Clouds start coming and the sky will fall
Clock ticks back from the bedroom wall
Now you're breathing
Just to make it through the night

All you need is the sunrise
Just a moment of dawn
If you're lost in the twilight
Close your eyes and move on

When you're tired in the waiting
Even though it's going to take you
A little more time, just a little more time
The sun's going to find you

Just a little more time
The sun's going to find you

. . .


Your down all the way down
Can't shake the feeling

I know you know that I know
You got your reasons

Sore eyes what's up with that face
Maybe well trace these lines
Back to fine
I'm sure
You've been here before
Sore eyes
Such a sight to see
If I can bring that light
Back to your eyes to stay
What would you say
What do you say

. . .


Love is not proud
Love does not boast
Love after all
Matters the most

Love does not run
Love does not hide
Love does not keep
Locked inside

Love is the river that flows through
Love never fails you

Love will sustain
Love will provide
Love will not cease
At the end of time

Love will protect
Love always hopes
Love still believes
When you don't

Love is the arms that are holding you
Love never fails you

When my heart won't make a sound
When I can't turn back around
When the sky is falling down
Nothing is greater than this
Greater than this

Love is right here
Love is alive
Love is the way
The truth the life

Love is the river than flows through
Love is the arms that are holding you
Love is the place you will fly to
Love never fails you

. . .


Why are you crying
Did I say something wrong
Were'nt we just talking
Tell me whats going on

Cause I'm pretty sure my intentions
Were nothing more than conversation
Maybe you just needed someone
To listen to your heart

Maybe I spoke too soon
Maybe I said too much
Now that my face is blue
Think it's time I listen up
I've already said enough

Sometimes I do this
Thing is I'm so afraid
When it get's quiet
What you might have to say

Cause I'm guilty of
Overcompensation
I'm lost in my
Own translation
I apologize, I know I
Should listen to your heart

Chorus

There isn't anything that I could say
Not a word to get in the way
Of you, Of You, I am listening

Chorus

. . .


It's an uphill climb
But it's all you know
So you spin your wheels
And dig your heels and down you go

So predictable
But it's not your fault
How can you expect to do your best
When you're scared to fall

Cause the pain is real
But you will survive
That's how you know you're alive

Cause it's Okay Now, Hey Now
You can let go
That's when you
Find out, Find out
Everybody knows
That there just
Aint no, Aint no
Easier way out
I know it might not look that way
But You're gonna live to fight another day

There's a place I know
Outside of town
Let's get out of here
Where all our fears don't hang around

Here's another chance
Take it while you can
Cause it sure wont last
Moves so fast
And it's gone again

Pre-Chorus

Chorus

You wonder what you are made
I'm telling you now
You're gonna make somehow
What are you so afraid of

. . .


When I'm alone
The faces they come and they go
They all say that I haven't changed
I wish I could stay
But be where you are
The countrys and citys so far
This is my job and my gift
But sometimes I get

Scared
That somehow I'll cease to belong
Anywhere
So I need you when it all starts to show
When I'm alone

When I'm alone
I sleep late it's crazy I know
The worlds only passing me by
I guess that is why
I'm telling you now
That I haven't figured it out
The depth of the things that I've missed
They leave me like this

Scared
That somehow I'll cease to belong
Anywhere
So I need you when it all starts to show
When I'm alone

Is it true that you can find me anytime
Cause I'm feeling like I'm there, it's about that time

And I'm scared
That somehow I'll cease to belong
Anywhere
So I need you when it all starts to show
When I'm alone

. . .


No better word than from your lips
No perfect life than what you lived
No greater gift, no not one

No brighter star has ever shined
No better hope for all mankind
No higher mind, no not one

No one has ever known
This kind of love you've shown

There has never been a greater love
Than your son
No. Not one
And there'll never be a greater love
No, Not one
With his life you have forgiven us
Hope has come
Hope has come
And there will never be a greater love
No, Not one

No image true or sweeter frame
No simple word can match your name
No greater fame
No not one

No one has ever seen
The depth of your majesty

Chorus

No greater call
You gave us all a reason to live
No greater love
You gave us all a reason to give
No greater life
You gave us all a reason to shine
No greater love
Forever mine
