That day you went looking for what you needed
All thoughts of reason had faded, receded
You fled the register, hands full of cash
Your mind lying to you that what you did was rash
Only one way, only one way you saw
To make your gut’s teeth stop their relentless gnaw
The you you knew long time faded from the mirror
I wonder could you see Jesus standing by, always near?
Behind barbed wired walls you now abide
Caged feeling and regret by your side
No light in the darkness in a place like that
Cruelty of others ready to knock you down flat
How we all wish it hadn’t come to this
Say goodbye to freedom with a kiss
But what if…what if there is something new?
Around the bend, down the road a mile or two
Bigger than your plans or hopes could dream
Something royal; a calling flowing in your bloodstream
Your Father, your King awaits!
Watch Him as He draws His plans, creates
A course He’s plotted out for you in mind
One thing He asks is to leave the past behind
Give Him your will, pass the test
And I guarantee your God will do the rest
