Sanctus Real Benjamin

Rain falls outside

I think the sky must know whats happening tonight

Children born while fathers die

It’s the circle of life that we all live in time

We’ve been friends for a long, long time

So if you can’t talk, just cry

And know that we can talk on the other side

It’s bitter cold outside

But the sun still shines ’cause we can feel it

Benjamin, you mark the life that was left behind

We see him in your eyes

And we will be friends for a long, long time

So until you can talk, just cry

And know that we will be friends for the rest of our lives

He gives and he takes, and it makes us stronger

Sanctus Real Better Than This

It starts in your heart and it

Changes the rhythm of your life

It starts with a spark and it

Turns to a fire burning bright

Out of the darkness, you feel the joy inside

Hey, nothing feels better than this

When the sun comes shining in

It’s a new day, you’re wide awake

And you feel alive again

Hey yea, hey yea

It burns deep inside,

Changes your world one day at a time

It glows in your soul and it

Reaches the places you thought you could hide

Joy makes you shout into the silence,

Makes you wanna dance in the hardest times

Hey, nothing feels better than this

When the sun comes shining in

It’s a new day, you’re wide awake

And you feel alive again

Nothing feels better than this

The chance to start again

It’s a new day and you just can’t wait

Cause nothing feels better

Nothing feels better than this

There’s gonna be days when you wanna give in

But you can’t give in, you can’t give up

There’s gonna be days when you just can’t win

And you need something to get you up

It’s more than enough, when you got love inside

Hey yea, hey yea, hey yea

Hey, nothing feels better than this

When the sun comes shining in

It’s a new day, you’re wide awake

And you feel alive again

Oh, nothing feels better than this

The chance to start again

It’s a new day and you just can’t wait

Cause nothing feels better

Nothing feels better than this

Hey yea

Sanctus Real Dear Heart

Dear Heart, do you belong to me, or do I belong to you?

Just look at all the trouble you drag me into.

I’ve heard it said to follow your heart,

But I’m starting to wonder if it’s gone too far.

Oh Heart, you’ve let me down,

Chasing love where it can’t be found.

Heart, we’ve fallen out,

Cause all of your emotions

Have led me to doubt. Tell me who’s gonna save us now?

Dear Heart, you’re in the wrong place,

Looking out for yourself no matter what I say.

And I know that you’re holding me back,

And it’s time for a change, so I’m giving you away.

Heart, you’ve let me down,

Chasing love where it can’t be found.

And Heart, we’ve fallen out,

Cause all of your emotions

Have led me to doubt. Tell me who’s gonna save us now?

La la la la la la la la la,

La la la la la la la la la [2x]

Heart, you’ve let me down,

Chasing love where it can’t be found.

And Heart, we’ve fallen out,

Cause all of your emotions

Have led me to doubt. Only Jesus can save us now

Sanctus Real Deeds

Yeah, Mr. Deeds has got you wrapped around his finger

With what you think you need to do to be delivered

You look for accidents so you can be the hero

You wrote the charity check that ends in double zeros

You help old ladies cross the street,

You welcome homeless where you sleep

You give to everyone in need,

You even hold a city key

Aren’t you great?

But that’s not good enough

If you don’t have faith you have nothing at all

If you don’t have deeds your faith will fall

They can’t be true without each other

you can’t have one without the other

You think that faith is where you sit in a sunday morning

You’ve got a front row seat where you can be seen snoring

Throughout the week you live your life inside a bubble

You find your happiness avoiding people’s thoughts

Your life revolves around yourself,

You don’t treat others very well

You say your faith will get you by and that

you won’t be left behind

You might be right, but that’s not good enough

If you don’t have deeds you have nothing at all

If you don’t have faith your deeds will fall

They can’t be true without each other

You can’t have one without the other

You know I can’t see thinking

That I’d be better off living just for selfish ambition, no

I know that faith is more than just believing

We should do the right

Things, for the right reasons

Sanctus Real Alone

True love exists yes I know this

My heart was waiting for you

And when we met I felt my chest

pound fast, racing for the chance

to know you, to hold you

To open up and show you

The way it feels when you know…

You are not alone

Know that I would fight the tides to

Be together

When you feel alone

Listen to this song to make your heart

feel better

Two hearts entwined, yes, you are mine

And I’ll be your’s forever

I’ve done the math, I’m less than half

We’re better off together

And I want you here by my side

As much as you are on my mind

When I’m gona you should no

Rainy Mondays feel like Fridays

When you’re smiling at me I can feel

The space

Between us collapsing

Our love is everlasting

Listen to this song

Let it make your heart feel better

Sanctus Real Change Me

Did I change your mind with

What I said last night?

Did I break your heart by

Straying so far?

From what you have in mind

For my life?

Would you change me from

Who I’ve been lately?

‘Cause I know I’m nothing

Without you

Did my words betray the

Patience I once claimed

Can’t you see it in my face?

I need your grace

Would you change me from

Who I’ve been laterly?

‘Cause I lnow I’m nothing

Without you

Would you save me from

The way I’ve been lately?

‘Cause I can’t see living

Without you

Would you change me from

Who I’ve been lately?

‘Cause I lnow I’m nothing

without you

Would you break me from

The way I’ve been lately?

‘Cause I can’t see living

Without you

Sanctus Real Don’t Give Up

I heard you say you would love for a lifetime

Now you complain a lifetime just doesn’t feel right for you

Another casualty of casual love

Another soul out of place, a heart that gave up

Why do we break the promises we make?

Are we living for ourselves?

[Chorus:]

Don’t give up on love and throw it all away

Don’t give up on love and let it fall away

When did it become so easy to run from your pain

Don’t give up on love and throw it all away

I heard you say you can’t change a stubborn heart

I can relate ’cause that’s how I feel when I talk with you

Why should it take losing everything

to realize it might be time to change?

[Chorus:]

Your restless heart won’t win ’cause you take but you don’t give

And you’ll keep moving on until you learn what love is

Don’t give up on love and throw it all away

Don’t give up on love and let it fall away

Don’t give up on love

Sanctus Real Captain’s Chair

Where did you go?

How have you been?

I’ll be right here.

Where did you go how have you been?

Are you still my best friend?

We’ve seen best of times,

We’ve heard worst of lies,

But here we still… Still we stand

Where did you go?

How have you been?

I’ll be right here.

Where did you go and have you been

Thinking of remember whens?

And you will take the drivers seat

And I will take the captains chair,

And you will take the drivers seat,

And I will take the drivers chair.

Sanctus Real 33

Oh, I was just a young one

When I heard my mother pray

I’d never fall away

And where we came from

We didn’t have much

But she knew the secret to having everything

And she prayed, take this child of mine

Keep him in Your hands

And now I’m 33

Looking at this path behind me

And all You’ve brought me through

And I’ve made my mistakes

I’ve caused my share of heartache

But I have seen a mother’s prayer come true

Oh, Lord my heart still belongs to You

Now I look on those young lives

Stare in those precious eyes

And I understand why my mother prayed for us

She never gave up

And I know her prayers for me

They taught me to believe

So I pray, take this child of mine

And let me live to hear them say

I’m 33

Looking at this path behind me

And all You’ve brought me through

And I’ve made my mistakes

I’ve caused my share of heartache

But I have seen a father’s prayer come true

Oh, Lord my heart still belongs to You

Oh, I’m 33 and God I see how much I need you now

And there’s a prayer that carries me through every day of doubt

Lord, I want to be the kind of man who passes down

A legacy of faith and love that’s never burning out

Oh, I’m 33 and I still feel those prayers around me

And all they’ve brought me through

Sanctus Real After Today

After today I’ll get me out of this place

Into the world so I can set a new pace

Seems I’m on my own from here

Vision doesn’t seem so clear

Won’t You lay me in Your hands of grace

I’ve got a funny feeling that I’m gonna go away

Gonna face my future, gonna try to make the grade

I’ve got a ways to go from here and vision doesn’t seem so clear

But praise God He’s got a plan and understanding isn’t my place

After today I’m gonna come face to face

With a new world who knows I’m feeling this way

I’ve got a ways to go from here

I’m gonna overcome these fears

Still I’m gonna need Your hands of grace

I’ll be a bigger man… I’ll pray a bigger prayer

I’ll dream a bigger dream…for today.
