Verse 1:
My whole existence is so tired
It feels like I have come unwired
I don't want to move
I don't want to breathe
I don't want to do
What's expected of me
I'm on fire
Because I'm tired
Chorus:
This whole world has gone so crazy
Could we show love one day just maybe
Take all the hate
Throw it away
No matter our race
We all bleed the same
Verse 2:
One side takes over our TV screens
While the other hordes our news feeds
Let's turn off the screens
Show up to scenes
Shake hands unite
Together we'll fight
Aren't you on fire
We should all be tired
Repeat Chorus 1x
Ending:
I'm on fire
Because I'm tired
Aren't you on fire
We should all be tired
This whole world has gone so crazy
Could we show love one day just maybe

Tired

Verse 1:
I watch her with her paper and pen
Jotting notes and doodling
She looks at me with her flamboyant eyes
Points at her book with a big ole smile
Says, hey mom, I'm just like you
I'm doing this, just like you do

Chorus:
There are times when I feel like giving up
I get let down and times get tough
When I feel I can't reach my calling
I'm reminded, there's someone watching

Verse 2:
I watch him as he tightens his strings
Strums down slow to find the perfect ring
I ask him what he's trying to play
He says not sure yet, but someday
I hope, to play just like you
Hes watching, everything I do

Chorus:
There are times when I feel like giving up
I get let down and times get tough
When I feel I can't reach my calling
I'm reminded, there's someone watching

Bridge:
Even when my mind starts to ramble
And all my strings become untangled
I'll work hard, fight and push through
Because my loves, live life as I do

Chorus:
There are times when I feel like giving up
I get let down and times get tough
When I feel I can't reach my calling
I'm reminded, there's someone watching
There's someone watching
My kids are watching

Watching

Verse 1:
When times get hard
And waters get deep
Mistakes are made
Prices are paid
It's time to hit my knees
Chorus Intro:
But what will he say
About my sinful ways
Will he ignore my call
Not answer at all
Instead he said
Chorus 1X:
Don't fear, don't worry
But bask in my glory
I'm going to see you through
Just trust in my word
And trek on forward
I've got big plans for you
Verse 2:
I am afraid
From the choices I make
My chance I will take
My life's no mistake
Through him I am brave
Chorus 1X
Ending:
I trust in the lord
With all my heart
I know that he
Is never far
He trusts in me
To play my part
That he has written
In the stars

Bask in my Glory

Chorus 1X

To God be the Glory

Sometimes I drink way too much
I also fall out of touch
I get angry, I get mad
I cast stones at all in my path
But, I don't mean to
It's just what I do
Lord, I know you love me for who I am
But please forgive me for who I am
I sometimes gossip and call out names
Point the finger to show the blame
All the while I know I am wrong
3 more fingers are pointing strong
Call me out
For all of my doubt
Lord, I know you love me for who I am
But, please forgive me for who I am
We're all sinners as the bible says
So in shame I bow my head
Begging for forgiveness
Knowing I don't deserve this
Lord, I know you love me for who I am
But, please forgive me for who I am

Forgive me for who I am

Verse 1:
Hello, my long lost friend
It's good to see you again
It's good to see your face
It's been a while since I've been to this place

Chorus:
You went so far away
Please tell me where you've been
I was afraid there would come a day
I wouldn't see you again
Hello!

Verse 2:
Hello, it's good to see your smile
That's been missing for a while
Your eyes seem brighter now
I'm glad you made it back somehow


Chorus:
You went so far away
Please tell me where you've been
I was afraid there would come a day
I wouldn't see you again
Hello!

Verse 3:
With the mirror no longer fogged
My friend you've not been missing at all
You've been here all this time
But myself I had to find

Hello

Staring out the window
Sky so blue
Wind blowing through the trees
all I think about is you

But you're gone
Long gone
You're gone
Long Gone

Thinking about the past
All the good times
Lots of fun memories
I wish I could rewind

But time's gone
Long gone
Time's gone
Long gone

Don't take life for granted
The people or the time
Cause when you least expect it
It's nowhere to find

When it's gone
It's long gone
When it's gone
It's long gone

Gone

Verse 1:
He works long hours, he don't get home til late
He never makes it to their dinner dates
The kids don't expect him at their games anymore
They barely get excited when he walks thru the door
His wife begs and pleads for some family time
But he screams about bills and how he needs to unwind
She sits alone in the hallway at night
Last thing she wanted was another fight

Chorus:
I don't want these fancy things
I just want my family
I don't want the mansion home, the brand new car, or the diamond rings
I don't want these material things
I just want to make memories

Verse 2:
One day at work after another fight
He sat in his office and thought maybe she's right
He left work early only to find
A letter on the table that she left behind
He fell to his knees, tears streamed down
He see's how his life has been turned around
So he sits in the hall way all alone
and ponders how he let everything go wrong

Repeat Chorus

Outro:
It's not about what you have
But the ones you love and make you laugh
Make the memories while you can
Those are priceless and can't be spent
