Appreciate 04:50
I don’t appreciate things I don’t appreciate. Often times I feel that I must learn how to lie, and learn how to hide my feelings. I have never really fit in, well at least not from my perspective. And I have never been the best, or the “it” girl, or the one they are always loving. Underneath this pale hotel is a secret I have learned so well. Underneath this neon sign is a love I can’t deny. Here’s what I learned on the mountain: that I am not much at all. And I’m not important for what I can do. Here’s what I learned when you left me: that some people never grow up. And they cannot love you whatever you do…and don’t worry too much on why. Here’s what I learned when you loved me: that I am important to you. And you do not want me for what I can do…I don’t worry too much on why.

Harvest Town 02:58
Simple times are for simple people, simple times are for simple thoughts. Simple times are for simple people, one of them I’m not. Timeless days are for timeless people, timeless days are for timeless thoughts. Timeless days are for timeless people, one of them I’m not. Take these hands, damaged by the soil. Take these arms, damaged by my toil. And take me down to Harvest Town, where Jesus lives. Jesus, he lives. Reckless days are for reckless people, reckless days are for reckless thoughts. Reckless days are for reckless people, one of them I’m not.

Once there was a man who came who taught me how to breathe. Once there was a man who came who brought me to my knees. And once there was another one who built a second house. He cleared out all the rooms I had and salted out my mouth. Oh, the time was heaven when he opened up the sky. When the wind had left him he was found completely dry. So empty inside…in a way, he’s just like me. But, once there was a man who came who found the heart of me. Once there was a man who came who caused me to feel free. And once there was another one who bought the wounds I bore. He laced up all my empty sides and never asked for more. Oh, the time was heaven when he opened up the sky. When the veil was lifted he became the reason why. So empty inside…in a way, he’s just like me.

I’m no longer on a mission for you, Lord. I got nothin.’ Now’s the time, Lord, to ease my mind ‘cause I got nothin.’ Watch me wander, or run and hide ‘cause I got nothin.’ I got nothin,’ but You say: “Nothing can separate me from Your love, nothing can separate me.” Not my pain or my depression, nor my latest transgression. You know, the devil is a liar, and God is gonna take you higher. Higher!

When I was just a little girl, crazy calm was inside my world. Things were not as they’re s’posed to be. Daddies don’t come with guarantees, in his eyes I will always be So much more than I ought to be. So take me out of the miry clay and Set my feet on a rock to stay and Send me songs to sing of your praise. Then I went off to school and I thought I knew what was really cool. But all those rules, they just got in my way. Time did pass and I made the mistakes that last. Bleeding sorrows they ran so fast that they led my way.

Come 02:44
“You, brokenhearted. Come to Me. Come and find rest, for you’re so sweet to Me. Come and find rest, come and find rest, in Me.” “If I saved you this pain, I couldn’t save at all. Let all your burdens fall on Me. Come and find rest, come and find rest, in Me.”

Look how your ghosts and my ghosts they make friends. It’s easy to be here alone. Everyone’s waiting to see what I do, but then their not waiting at all. Would you like to go fishing for some fish that will feed the fantastical hunger? Would you like me to understand what God means when He says this soon will be over? How nice it’d be if my dreams would come true, but how can I say what they’d bring? Maybe it’s sweet, or it’s bad after all, but still I will sit here and sing.
8.
I don’t deserve second chances. I don’t deserve any fun. I don’t require any loving. I don’t require anyone. “Come to my window,” he says, “and take me home.” “Come to my quiet avenue, and lead me on.” “Outside the rain, it’s in your head, and here’s my hand, so take the chance before it’s gone.”

Great Things 03:14
I just know it will all work out, even with my seeds of doubt. ‘Cause all I need is a seed of faith, and You will do great things. Times are hard, but Your grace is wide. Even when I can’t feel it inside. I put my mind on the things You say, and it will be okay. ‘Cause Jesus, You will do great things. You will do great things. Jesus, You have done great things and you will do great things. I sing now for you, Lord. Here I am. My heart’s here for you, Lord. Help me stand.
