NEEDTOBREATHE Looks Like Love

Take another step

Don’t give up on me just yet

We could take a chance

We could find a child’s romance

At least we’d love until we can’t

I wont run when it looks like love

I won’t hide beneath the fear

Of how my past has come undone

I wont run when it looks like love

I can’t spend another night alone

Regretting what I’ve done

So, I won’t run

The breeze can only be

When she overcomes the heat

Our hearts can only shake

When there’s risk that they could break

Yeah it’s a chance that I will take

Raise your head

Its time to say

Those words that I have left unsaid

I’ve slept through the sunrise

And I turned

Away every time it got bright

NEEDTOBREATHE Oh, Carolina

Oh Carolina

When I get back home to you we’re gonna start a fire

Oh you know I miss you

And when we get back home to you I got a story to give you

I been all mixed up been gathering dust

Down and down for days thinking bout us

I know we both can’t deny it

There was a wrinkle in time way back when

We were living fast and I won’t back in

Truth is baby I’ve been surviving

Cuz I’m on my way

Oh Carolina

Yeah, when I get back home to you we’re gonna start a fire

Oh you know I miss you

And when we get back home to you I got a story to give you

I got it pushed to the floor and it’s almost light

Quarter past an hour and a matter of time

Body’s been gone for miles but heart still driving

Cuz I’m on my way

Yeah I’m on my way

Oh Carolina

Yeah, when I get back home to you we’re gonna start a fire

Oh you know I miss you

And when we get back home to you I got a story to give you

Oh you know I miss you

And when we get back home to you I got a story to give you

We’re gonna start a fire

NEEDTOBREATHE Feet, Don’t Fail Me Now

I got this target

Right here on my back

They’re aiming where I was

Not where I’m at

Yeh they ain’t stopped me

Since I was eighteen

I’m moving faster

Than my enemies

I can’t slow down

I can’t get stuck

I’d rather die than have to hang it up

Don’t wanna look up

And it be over

Don’t want to wish that

I had longer

It’s my time

Yeah it’s my town

I pray my feet won’t ever slow me down

Don’t fail me now

I saw my last dream

Roll out around me

I’m trying to chase me

Down a fantasy

I felt the moonlight

Reach down and touch me

I need another night

Before you leave

NEEDTOBREATHE WALKING ON WATER

The wind is strong, the water’s deep

My heart is heavy and my mind won’t sleep

Oh can You hear, my fear it breathes

I need to know if You’re the shadow I can see

I wanna run to You when the waves break through

I wanna run to You and not turn back

There’s no turning back

Nothing in the past

My eyes are on You again

Can’t see nothing at all

But Your outstretched arms

Help me believe it

Though I falter

You’ve got me walking on water

The oceans singing, the song of grace

But if I’m honest with myself, I am still afraid

I wanna run to You when the waves break through

I’m gonna run to You and not turn back

There’s no turning back

Nothing in the past

My eyes are on You again

Can’t see nothing at all

But Your outstretched arms

Help me believe it

Though I falter

You’ve got me walking on water

I was sinking like a stone again

I was halfway in the grave and then

I looked up and saw Your face again

You pulled me out of the water, water, water

There’s no turning back

Nothing in the past

My eyes are on You again

Can’t see nothing at all

But Your outstretched arms

Help me believe it

Though I falter

You’ve got me walking on water

Though I falter

You’ve got me walking on water, water, water

You got me walking on water, water, water, water

NEEDTOBREATHE MOUNTAIN, Pt. 1

I’ve been burying a mountain

I’ve been running uphill

I’ve been pushing up a big weight

That I’m carrying still

I can see over the mountain

And I know that it’s real

There’s a river made of roses

Just up over this hill

NEEDTOBREATHE More Heart, Less Attack

Be the light in the cracks

Be the one that’s mending the camel’s back

Slow to anger and quick to laugh

Be more heart and less attack

Be the wheels not the track

Be the wanderer that’s coming back

Leave the past right where it’s at

Be more heart and less attack

The more you take, the less you have

‘Cause it’s you in the mirror that’s starin’ back

Quick to let go, slow to react

Be more heart and less attack

Ever growing, steadfast

And if need be, the one that’s in the gap

Be the never turning back

Twice the heart any man could have

Be the wheels not the track

Be the wanderer that’s coming back

Leave the past right where it’s at

Be more heart and less attack

Be more heart and less attack

Be more heart and less attack

I stuck my hat out

I caught the rain drops

I drank the water

I felt my veins pop

I’m nearly sanctified

I’m nearly broken

I’m down the river, I’m nearly open

I stuck my hat out

I caught the rain drops

I drank the water

I felt my veins pop

I’m nearly sanctified

I’m nearly broken

I’m down the river, I’m nearly open

I’m down the river, to where I’m going

NEEDTOBREATHE Let Us Love

We were born to embrace, not accept it

We were given nothing more, and so we kept it

As the colors of our boots keep fading

We live a life that we hate without saying

Who would listen to the cries of a poor man

We’ve never done nothing

How could we be something

Every heart has an hour of existence

Every breath brings a chance for redemption

If somehow we could wake up

Let us love

Like we were children

Make us feel

Like we’re still living

In a world I know that’s burning to the ground

Give us time

To beat the system

Make us find

What we’ve been missing

In a world I know that’s burning to the ground

In the crowd of the dead and disappointed

We’re ashamed, giving up on what we wanted

Take a chance on a long shot this time

Aren’t we all just at least worth another try

I’m a king in a land of abuses

Undermined by the promise of excuses

Who’s to win if we know that it’s not fair

Who’s to fight when it seems that no one cares

If somehow we could wake up

Let us love

Like we were children

Make us feel

Like we’re still living

In a world I know that’s burning to the ground

Give us time

To beat the system

Make us find

What we’ve been missing

In a world I know that’s burning to the ground

It’s hard to stay here, but where do we go

I know we can’t feel it anymore

It’s true that time is wearing us down

We fall further and further away

Waiting for always to change

Let us love

Like we were children

Make us feel

Like we’re still living

In a world I know that’s burning to the ground

Leave your hurting on the road behind you

Let the wind go with you ‘til the morning comes

Yeah your sorrow, it can’t save you

It won’t answer for what you’ve done

NEEDTOBREATHE Stones Under Rushing Water

Why don’t we dance anymore

I’m not ok with that

Why don’t we laugh anymore

I’m not ok with that

The years go by like stones under rushing water

We only know when it’s gone

Why don’t we smile anymore

I’m not ok with that

Why don’t we dance slowly

I’m not ok with that

The years go by like stones under rushing water

We only know when it’s gone

The years go by like stones under rushing water

We only know when it’s gone

Why don’t we dance anymore

I’m not ok with that

NEEDTOBREATHE Valley Of Tomorrow

I am a troubled mind, I am a calloused heart

A failing engine from driving way to hard

I was trying way to hard

I pulled a 38 out of my bleeding heart

I killed my selfishness for bringing me this far

This far away from you

When the daylight breaks through the buildings of Chicago

I will stand alone in the valley of tomorrow

Oh, this is the way I wanna go down

(This is the last time)

I’m starting over with you

This is the way I wanna go out

(This is the last time)

I never second-guessed the little voice I heard

It’s just a whisper that sounded like a scream

I ain’t never felt so free

When the daylight breaks through the buildings of Chicago

I will stand alone in the valley of tomorrow

Oh, this is the way I wanna go down

(This is the last time)

I’m starting over with you

This is the way I wanna go out

(This is the last time)

Yeah, I’m starting over with you

I never second-guessed the little voice I heard

It’s just a whisper
