    Don't

    Don't

     

    Don’t get my hopes up

    Don’t take such tender tones

    I just may fall for it

    I just may fall, so don’t

     

    Don’t get me thinking                                                                                                      

    I’ve settled every score

    Don’t play these games with me

    To loose, I can’t afford

     

    Something inside me

    Somewhere has died, see

    So little has survived

    But when you were talking

    Oh how it killed me

    Oh how I came alive

     

    Don’t ask me questions

    Don’t ask me why

    Don’t ask me anything

    And I won’t have to lie

     

    Nobody knows this

    I never show this

    Side of myself so pure

    But inside is beating

    A heart that is bleeding

    I’m fragile and insecure

     

    Don’t… unless you mean it

    Don’t offer me your oath

    I just may fall for it

    I just may fall, so don’t

     

    I just may fall in love

    I just may fall, so don’t

    Sinking

    Sinking

     

    Round and round and round and round it goes

    It never stops or sleeps and never slows

    Round and round and round and round I go

    It’s all I’ve ever know, it’s all I’ve ever known

     

    They told me all about those sticks and stones

    But words have hurt me more than broken bones

    Words made me believe I’m all alone

    It’s all I’ve ever known, It’s all I’ve ever know

     

    Would you reach for me when the water gets deep

    When I cannot breathe when I’m sinking

    Would you come to me, when I fail when I’m weak

    When I fall to my knees, when I’m sinking, cause I’m sinking

     

    I remember right when it went wrong

    But noone seemed to notice I was gone

    And now the darkness never turns to dawn

    It’s all I’ve ever known, it’s all I’ve ever known

     

    Oh now the way you’re talking

    Has got me thinking up-side-down

    You speak words of truth and kindness

    Resuscitate from doubt when all my hope had drowned

     

    And you reach for me when the water gets deep

    When I cannot breathe, When I am sinking

    And you come to me when I fall to my knees

    And say it can redeem and have a meaning

    This has meaning

    I have meaning

    Parable

     

    Parable

     

    You tell funny stories, I don’t always understand them

    You confuse me every time you speak

    It’s like you talk in riddles, you ask the strangest questions

    And never give the answers I think I need

     

    But when I’m with You everything makes sense

    When I’m with You I can be myself

    And I don’t have to try to be anybody else

     

    You tell epic stories, sometimes they leave me laughing

    And other times they make me want to cry

    You’ve got this way of knowing the perfect way to say it

    You slay me then you bring me back to life

     

    But when I’m with You everything makes sense

    When I’m with You I can be myself

    And I don’t have to try to be anybody else

     

    I am finally free

    This is the parable of me

    I am Your story

    You speak and I have air to breath

    In the parable of me

     

    You tell amazing stories, I never see it coming

    The way you weave the scarlet thread through all

    A grace for undeserving, a hope for all who’re hurting

    The end is the beginning of us all

     

    You tell so many stories

    It used to make me feel small

    I used to feel so insignificant

    Now I see You’re bigger

    You’re more than I imagined

    And in You all our stories somehow fit

    Can't Feel You Anymore

    Can't Feel You Anymore

     

    Verse 1

    I feel lost with no direction

    The darkness has me question

    Everything that I have come to know about the light

    I’m tired and I am weary

    I’m seeing nothing clearly

    Just trying to hold my breath until I reach the other side

     

    Pre-Chorus

    And then all things will be made right

    I believe, oh I believe, still it hurts, still I cry

     

    Chorus

    I can’t feel You

    I can’t find You

    I don’t feel it anymore

    I can’t see You

    I can’t hear You

    I can’t fake it anymore

    Oh Lord, oh Lord

     

    Verse 2

    I am rocking on the ocean

    In a storm of these emotions

    And the waves are crashing hard against the hope I’m trusting in

    You bend me ‘til You break me

    You unravel and re-make me

    Out of these ashes I’ll, one day, be born again

     

    Pre-Chorus

    And then all things will be made right

    I believe, oh I believe, still it hurts, still I cry

     

    Chorus

    I can’t feel You

    I can’t find You

    I don’t feel it anymore

    I can’t see You

    I can’t hear You

    I can’t fake it anymore

    Oh Lord, oh Lord

     

    Bridge

    An honest prayer, I hope You hear, if You are catching every tear

    An honest prayer, I hope You hear, are You catching every tear?

    An honest heart, would You turn away?  Even if that heart would say...

     

    Chorus

    I can’t feel You

    I can’t find You

    I don’t feel You anymore

    I can’t hear You

    I can’t see You

    I can’t fake it anymore

    I won't fake it anymore

    Oh Lord, oh Lord

NOTES
Major disclaimer: These are simple songs that I recorded in my own bedroom. The production quality is not the best. They are basically demos. But how cool is that? You get to hear the songs before they are fully produced in the studio. But heres the deal, I can't get them recorded better without your support!
