Group 1 Crew Burn

Honestly I feel like I really could die

All this pain man is keepin me wantin to cry

‘Cause all I know is everything that we been tryin

I feel it killin us and, baby, we slowly been dying

Every time that we cross every line

Claiming we love each other but we lie

Real love don’t keep you feelin so deprived

Should be the feelin that keeps you alive

But, girl, we done promised ourselves many times

That we gonna stop, but we don’t even try

And God is so good, he forgives every time

And I wanna be more than a night, more than a night

Been lost for a while, and I wanna come home

The places I’ve been got me feelin alone

Every part of my heart wanting me to let go

But it’s hard to say no

I know it’s hard to see it now

Blinded by the tears you’ve cried

When everything has turn to flames, the ashes rain inside

But know that underneath it all

There’s hope beyond the years of hurt

So you can leave it all behind

And watch it burn, burn, burn

Let it burn, burn, burn

Watch it burn, burn, burn

Burn, burn, burn

It’s been too many years, she don’t know what to do with her time when she home

Mama’s been workin so hard, tryna make up for the fact that daddy is gone

She think I don’t hear all the cryin that she doin in bed all alone

But these walls are thin like the ice that I just keep on skatin on

Hold up, hold up

Mama, I know that you feel it’s your fault

Nothin you did could’ve made someone stay when they wanted to leave deep inside of their heart

All you can do is forgive him

Try to envision

You movin on past the pain and the prison

That you’ve been stuck in, about to erupt in, I know there’s a better life you could be livin

I know it’s hard to see it now

Blinded by the tears you’ve cried

When everything has turn to flames, the ashes rain inside

But know that underneath it all

There’s hope beyond the years of hurt

So you can leave it all behind

And watch it burn, burn, burn

You’re more than what you see in the mirror

The reflection only shows where you’ve been

Don’t you know the story’s far from over

A chapter ends, another has to begin

So grow your wings, and begin to fly

And write your dreams all across the sky

Let the past be the wind that carries you higher

We in the clouds, sing it with me now

I know it’s hard to see it now

Blinded by the tears you’ve cried

When everything has turn to flames, the ashes rain inside

But know that underneath it all

There’s hope beyond the years of hurt

So you can leave it all behind

And watch it burn, burn, burn

Let it burn, burn, burn

Watch it burn, burn, burn

Burn, burn, burn…

Group 1 Crew Not The End Of Me

Every night I find it hard to sleep.

My tears keep running.

I am suffocating while they drowning me.

I didn’t see this coming.

I tried to catch my breath.

My heart’s a shattered mess.

I am tired of feeling like

I’ve got nothing left.

The end of us is not the end of me.

Every second gets easier to breathe.

Push the fear away, face another day.

Every moment I’m starting to believe,

I’m not broken, I’ll keep hoping.

There’s a part of me waiting to love again.

The end of us is not the end of me.

Is not the end of me.

It took everything for me to see,

That my life’s not ending.

You tried to break me but

I am not that weak, no.

I am so sick of pretending.

I tried to catch my breath.

My heart’s a shattered mess.

I am tired of feeling like

I’ve got nothing left.

The end of us is not the end of me.

Every second gets easier to breathe.

Push the fear away, face another day.

Every moment I’m starting to believe,

I’m not broken, I’ll keep hoping.

There’s a part of me waiting to love again.

The end of us is not the end of me.

Is not the end of me.

I chose to love, more like love chose me.

Or so I thought cause you had to leave.

Now I’m sitting here feeling so defeated.

It’s like you punched my heart,

Call that a heart beating.

And I made excuses but the truth is

That my mind was feeling heavy.

And it really hurts me to admit this,

But girl we just weren’t ready.

Confetti, hearts torn apart nothing to believe in.

I guess our love was Autumn,

It lasted for a season.

The end of us is not the end of me.

Every second gets easier to breathe.

Push the fear away, face another day.

Every moment I’m starting to believe,

I’m not broken, I’ll keep hoping.

There’s a part of me waiting to love again.

The end of us is not the end of me.

It’s not the end of me.

It’s not the end of me.

Group 1 Crew Forgive Me

Father, I’m going through some heavy things

It seems like this world ain’t getting any better

The more we try to get closer to You

The farther we run from Your throne

(Lord though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death

I’m not scared cause You’re holding my breath

I only fear that I don’t have enough time left

To tell the world that there’s no time left)

I’ve spent so many nights wonderin’ when will it end

When will the day come when happiness begins

I’m running the race but it seems so hard to win

I’m sick of mourning my stomach is throwing up in the morning

I’m calling for help and watching it melt away

My heart’s been put on display and put away

In many ways, many times I told myself it was ok

And anger was the price that was paid

While these faded dreams just screamed to bring them home

The burden was too heavy I kept running from the throne

I can’t take it any longer

I can taste my spirit hunger

God please help me get home

[Chorus:]

Lord though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death

I’m not scared cause You’re holding my breath

I only fear that I don’t have enough time left

To tell the world that there’s no time left, Lord please

Lord though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death

I’m not scared cause You’re holding my breath

I only fear that I don’t have enough time left

To tell the world that there’s no time left

I’ve come to terms that I’m burning both sides of the rope

And I’m hoping that self-control would kick in before I’m choking off

This sin that be destroying every fiber I got

I need the Lord in every way I’ll never make it I’m not

Going back to the way I was before Christ in my life

I couldn’t do it I would lose it there’s no point to the fight

And I’m writing this song, for the people who don’t belong

I pray away the pain you feel from all the things that went wrong

Inside a life that’s filled with anger and disappointment

Cause daddy treated you weaker than all of the other kids

It’s annoying and I feel for all of you who wanna give up

You feel stuck I feel the same way Lord help us stay up

You couldn’t pay me to abandon the idea of true hope

That I could make it through this life into a place where there’s no crying

I’m dying to find You with open arms when I go

Knowing You love me and You waiting to give rest to my soul

[Chorus]

Lord I don’t know what I’m struggling for

There’s got to be more

Than this life I know

But still I’m here fighting to never give up

I find strength in Your love

And You will see me through

[Chorus]

Lord though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death

Lord please

Lord though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death

I’m not scared cause You’re holding my breath

I only fear that I don’t have enough time left

To tell the world that there’s no time left

Group 1 Crew Song To Sing

[Chorus:]

Everybody’s gotta song to sing

So won’t you come now and sing with me

It doesn’t really matter where you’re from or what you’ve done

Everybody’s gotta story to tell

Times we’ve tried and times we failed

So when you feel like hope is gone keep holding on

This is your song

I’ve seen days when my life seemed hard and absurd

All of my words died cause they never were heard, like they

Left my mouth then fell to the curb

Got trampled by life and every lesson I’ve learned

Why do good people leave this earth before their time

It hurts to see death get the best of us first

Yet I know a times comin’ when I

Will feel the breeze in my eyes

Dry my tears and fade away in the sky

I see the day my family believes God

And puts away the facade

Of being ok when I know they’re not

But I know You’re gonna take what I write

Bring this story to life for Your people tonight

Yo everybody has a story

And it needs to be heard

So let it play and resonate

From the hood to the burbs

Whether your sky is grey

And you, been through it all

There’s somebody on this earth

That is singing the same song.

Some one across the Pacific

Is stressed from hard labor,

Searching desperately

Cause he’s in need of Savior,

Barely ever home

Ignores his kids for the paper

And you’ll never know

This same tune’s being sung by your neighbor

See age doesn’t matter

When life wants to fail you

When your color don’t determine

Whether you’re destined for failure

We all run to the sun

And hide from the rainy weather

But we make beautiful music

When we all unite together and…

I know it’s been hard

To make it this far

But God knows your heart

And every need
