01. This Is Life

Get yourself together now
You've got a lot to think about
You've got some big shoes to fill
Time is meant for work and not to kill
I am facing a deadline
I don't know where it ends
But there's always something to do
Another battle to choose

But this is life
Up and down we go
On a ride
So unpredictable, this life
So many questions flow
But the one thing I know
I'm learning as I go


Now, what did you say, I didn't hear
My train of thought has disappeared
Along with the things that I've misplaced
There's too much on my plate that sometimes
I don't know where I'm going
Or I don't know where I've been
But there's always someone to answer to
And not enough time with You

But this is life
Up and down we go
On a ride
So unpredictable, this life
So many questions flow
But the one thing I know
I'm learning as I go

What if time would stop for a bit
Could I maybe catch my breath
But all the while I'm still stuck in this hustle and bustle
Trying to make sense of all that I have to do yet
Cause I'm not done yet

But it's life
Up and down
On a ride
So unpredictable, this life
So many questions flow
But the one thing I know
I'm learning as I go

Get yourself together now
I said get yourself together now

02. Tell

All is lost you say
Gone with yesterday
But you used to laugh
You had so much to say
Love that came and went
When time was all but spent
Remember when you lived without regret

Like the sky your life is so many shades of blue
Frightened that the ocean could rise up and swallow you
You hold onto the life that you once knew
Preserved so well cause you
You've got a lot to tell
So much to tell


Memories that fade
The distant images ingrained
They used to be so easily relayed

Like the sky your life is so many shades of blue
Frightened that the ocean could rise up and swallow you
You hold onto the life that you once knew
Preserved so well cause you
You've got a lot to tell

So tell me what is life but a passing glance
A fleeting moment that you can't get back
But the whispers and the laughter
All this it, it matters

Like the sky our lives are so many shades of blue
And one day soon the ocean could rise up and swallow you
So hold onto the life given to you
Preserve it well so you
You'll have a lot to tell

Oh we've got a life to live and love to show
But in the end what matters the most
Is who we are and what we tell

03. We Are Known

Spinning world
Flying time
So much hurry now
The universe is a puzzle that I can't figure out

Do I dare to dream so big
Do I stop and think
What if there's a reason
That I feel, hurt, wish, hope, breathe, live
I need to know
In this chaos I am known
I am known


Every life
Every soul
Has it's purpose here below
Day and night are the times that I wonder most

Do we dare to dream so big
Do we stop and think
What if there's a reason
That we feel, hurt, wish, hope, breathe, love
We need to know
In this chaos we are known
We are known

We drift at sea
Till You open the gales
Give us somewhere to sail
All is nothing
Till You make it real
Give us something to feel

What is happening at the end of this scene
Are we lost or stored away
Like some forgotten thing
Or are we marked by our Maker who knows all of our names
In our faces lie the traces of the One who made us
We are known

Do we dare to dream so big
Do we stop and think what if
There’s a reason that we feel, hurt, wish, hope, breathe, love
We need to know
In this chaos we are known
We are known
We all drift at sea

04. Lemonade

I built my castle tall
But only sand remains
I watched it rise and fall
And crumble grain by grain
In this a lesson learned
Some knowledge to be gained
It's not what I have that matters
But it's of what I'm made

Will I be the one who makes lemonade?
And be the one to open the shades
Will I be the one to pick myself up?


Now someone is always there
To rain on your parade
They wait around the bend
To steal your joy away
See, you can run the race
Get second place and cry
Or you can stand up tall
Be thankful that you can run at all

Will you be the one who makes lemonade?
And be the one to open the shades
Will you be the one to pick yourself up?

Now no one plans for second hands
Shattered dreams and broken wings
It's the better man
Who takes his stand
And when he's down
He'll rise again

And make lemonade
And he'll open the shades
He'll be the one to pick himself up

So be the one to make lemonade
And be the one to open your shades
Will you be the one to pick yourself up?
And make sweet, sweet lemonade

05. Emma Prayed

She had a willful heart, untamed
She was a picture of a mess
By anger framed
And her rage went on
Her search was futile but strong
Her rage went on
Till the little girl was gone
And her family hoped she'd be okay
Maybe she needs some time
Sometimes it takes time
To find your way

She traveled miles and miles to get away
It took her from all she knew into unchartered waves
And her rage went on
The lies, the deceit were strong
Her rage went on
Till the traces of her were gone
And the substance numbed
But didn't fill the spaces
The hollow spaces that remained

But redemption proved to be not far away
It pursued her with fury
A new kind of flame
Until the day she decided to pray
She finally prayed

She said
I have a willful heart
I'm so ashamed
Are You the one to pay the price
That I have claimed
Cause my rage went on for so long
I'm holding on to You now

And He washed the stains
The guilt away that day
That beautiful day
That Emma prayed
Emma prayed
Emma prayed

And He washed it all away that day
He washed it all away that day
He washed the stains
The guilt away that day
What a beautiful day
That Emma prayed

06. When I Break

Am I the failure?
Am I what's wrong?
Cause sometimes my life feels
Just a little bit off
I have a hunger
So much I crave
Like all I've passed by
All I've let slip away

There's so much hiding underneath the surface
Waiting for some kind of cosmic purpose
What’s my purpose?
Maybe all that's left in finding myself
Is to know
In weakness there is strength

When I break, You bend
I sink, You swim
When I let go, You hold me
And then I'm swept away
But You're here to stay
My heart is safe
When I break
I break


The disillusion of what I sought
Has left me stranded
Endlessly caught
See, You're the hero
And I a pawn
You swoop in and You save
More than the day
You make me wanna change my ways

There's so much hiding underneath the surface
Waiting for some kind of cosmic purpose
What's my purpose?
Maybe all that's left in finding myself
Is to know
In weakness there is strength

When I break, You bend
I sink, You swim
When I let go, You hold me
And then I'm swept away
But You're here to stay
My heart is safe
When I break

Forever will be when I end
You begin
You begin

Forgiveness is mine
I'm no longer condemned
I walk in the dark
But a light You have sent
You better me
Lord, You better me

When I break, You bend
I sink, You swim
When I let go, You hold me
And then I'm swept away
But You're here to stay
My heart is safe
Even when I break
I break

07. Men Of War

Take up your banner
Hold it high
If you intend to fight
Put on your armor
Make sure it's tight
We're in for many nights

We will march unto death
We will run until our last breath

We are brave men of war
And we fight but don't keep score
We are frail but not afraid
We are brave men of war


We move as soldiers one by one
Until it's finished
Until it's done
Our cry of freedom
For freedom we sing
Let the martyrs’ anthem ring

As we march unto death
We will run until our last breath

We are brave men of war
And we fight but don't keep score
We are frail but not afraid
We are brave men of war

Follow the Son
Let our voice resound as one
May our spirits come clean
By the blood of Jesus
He will hear us and defend our name
He'll fight the battle with us night and day

As we march unto death
We will run until our last breath

We are brave men of war
And we fight but don't keep score
We are frail but we're not afraid
We are brave men
We are brave men of war

08. Amazed

Out of the dark
We have come
Have gathered in love
With hope in our hearts
For one moment to be where You are
And we watch, wait
Lifting our voices and turning our gaze
To bathe in Your glory
Oh Father of love
Father of life
Hear us tonight

We lay down our burdens where we stand
Follow Your lead
We take Your hand
May our eyes be opened
May our hearts be changed
May our lips overflow with praise
May we be amazed


From age to age
You have seen
Have heard as we pray
And no other name
Has such greatness
Such power to save
And we'll watch, wait
Lifting our voices and turning our gaze
To bathe in Your glory
Oh Father of love
Father of life
Hear us tonight

We lay down our burdens where we stand
Follow Your lead
We take Your hand
May our eyes be opened
May our hearts be changed
May our lips overflow with praise
May we be amazed, amazed
Amazed, amazed

Take us down to the place
Where the angels sing
And we dance and dream
Set us free in purity
Where our spirits stay forever amazed

Amazed, amazed
Amazed

We lay down our burdens where we stand
Follow Your lead
We take Your hand
May our eyes be opened
May our hearts be changed
May our lips overflow with praise
May we be amazed, amazed
Amazed

09. How Do You Know

I could go down
Without a sound
For days inside of a dark that suffocates
But You would know
And You would go
And fight until the last of my oppressors turned their backs

And so, how do You know
The things that enrage me
Frustrate and break me
You know what no one else knows
My highs and my lows
Oh how, how do You know


I could be trapped
I might be caught
The situation’s grave
And my heart is full of pain
But You can see
And You can feel
All the woes that hold me down
Yeah, You wore them in the form of a crown

But oh, how do You know
The things that entice me
Tempt and delight me
You know what no one else knows
All my highs and my lows
Oh how, how do You know

Can You take my desires
Throw them into the fire and refine me
Can You take the load my emotions hold and subside me

Oh, how do You know
The things that inspire me
Lift and revive me
You know what no one else knows
All my highs and my lows
Oh how, how do You know
Somehow You know me so well

10. Days Of Eden

Images of God made into human flesh
Perfectly created and so innocent
Looking out at all He made
The grand display
It was good indeed
Those were such happy days

They were not meant to be in a darkening sea of unholy influence
They were made to give thanks
And to praise and to dance
In the days of Eden
But it all slipped away on that sorrowful day
When they chose to stand alone
Yeah, they tried on that day to create their own way
That's why we need grace


Watching life evolve into a careless age
While an unborn child won't see the light of day
Looking out at all this
How God's heart must break
Knowing that the hope He sent
We laugh away

We were not meant to be in a darkening sea of unholy influence
We were made to give thanks
And to praise and to dance
In the days of Eden
But it all slipped away on that sorrowful day
When we chose to stand alone
Yeah, we tried on that day to create our own way
That's why we need...

We are not meant to be in this darkening sea of unholy influence
We were made to give thanks
And to praise and to dance
In the days of Eden
But it all slips away every time, every day
When we choose to stand alone
Yeah, we try every day to create our own way
That's why we need grace

So long the days of Eden (repeat)

God is love
God is hope
God has grace for us
Christ is love
Christ is truth
Christ brought grace to us

So long the days of Eden, Eden
So long the days of Eden, Eden
