I wake up, I go back to sleep
Hoping that you won’t find me
Rolling in the chains I keep
Locked tight around the spot that I don’t want
Anyone but you to see
I put a cover on the candle
Praying that this light won’t leak
Too scared to testify to the world how

Every single time You said You love me You meant it
And every day I wasn’t worth Your time, You spent it
Mending, defending this life I’ve been lending away

Freedom given now ignored
I live as one who wants the sword
To pierce the throat that speaks no more
So rid us of this one too

I broke up with that stiff old me
Things are clear for the first time
Churches don’t save the trees
But the sunlight gardener gave up

Everything He ever had a right to come down like
Trading all the glory of a throne for a rough night
Ending the reign of the shame I that I carry no more

Seeking Holy, Righteous wisdom
From the One the rules the Kingdom
Broken beggar made proclaimer
Pointing to the one too

So I sing about a joy that I never knew
Even when I’m not in tune
As the weight of my strength melts away
So I speak from a fire to follow you
And I’m trying now to make room
To give every last moment away
