Candlelight Ballad

Been tryin' so hard just to let it go
It's not that easy, if you had to know.
Tryin' to see my way through this storm,
I can't find a foothold, no solid ground.

I'm dying to see these burdens cut loose,
Fallin' away like the autumn leaves.
Rolling down the hill, it can't be stopped
Like a runaway train...
Is there a hope?

My wounds have been left open,
Bleeding like the ink on this page.
Coverin' them up has become a habit
But this only works so long...

I'm losing this battle, when I'm fighting by myself
Slowly I'm fading, losing grip on all reality
Days become nights, and my once thought solace
Now eludes me.

Pain, like the ever blowing wind surrounds me,
Knocks me over, flat on my face.
I hear the thunder, roaring at me.
Black skies gather, masking the light.

Lightning flashing in the clouds, seem to mock me,
As I'm stumbling along this road, tripping on every step.
My life as an ever-flickering candle,
Seems almost blown out with every gust of wind.
These demons lay in waiting,
For a chance at my neck.

I see a light far off,
Dimly flickering like a dying candle.
The light slowly gets brighter,
Though still far away.

I keep stumbling and falling,
Yet I know each step takes me closer
Will you pick me up every time I fall?
Will you stay with me now, hearin' my every call?

I'll turn to you, my rock and my refuge.
I will run to you, oh giver of life.
Take these pains and burdens,
I can fight no more.

Surround me with your arms.
Hide me with your love
Carry me through this bleak and bleeding wasteland
Take me away tonight.
Take me away tonight.

guess maybe there is a silver lining after all

Everybody falls sometimes
Gotta find the strength to rise
From the ashes and make a new beginning
Anyone can feel the ache
You think it’s more than you can take
But you are stronger, stronger than you know
Don’t you give up now
The sun will soon be shining
You gotta face the clouds
To find the silver lining

I’ve seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn’t ever end
Even when the sky is falling
And I’ve seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That’s what faith can do

It doesn’t matter what you’ve heard
Impossible is not a word
It’s just a reason for someone not to try
Everybody’s scared to death
When they decide to take that step
Out on the water
It’ll be alright
Life is so much more
Than what your eyes are seeing
You will find your way
If you keep believing

Overcome the odds
You don't have a chance
(That’s what faith can do)
When the world says you can’t
It’ll tell you that you can!

-kutless (what faith can do)


how long have I
been in this storm
so overwhelmed by the ocean's shapeless form
water's getting harder to tread
with these waves crashing over my head

if I could just see you
everything will be alright
if I'd see you
the darkness will turn to light

and I will walk on water
and you will catch me if I fall
and I will get lost into your eyes
i know everything will be alright
i know everything is be alright

I know you didn't
bring me out here to drown
so why am I 10 feet under and upside down
barely surviving has become my purpose
cause I'm so used to living underneath the surface
