Skillet Hey You, I Love Your Soul

Am I a man who knows how to love

When you hate what you fear the most

I’ll wash your feet as you spit in my face

Hey you, I love your soul

I’m going love you when you hate

You can’t outrun or escape this liquid

My life poured out like water

I’m gonna drown you with maddening forgiveness

Hey you, I love your soul

I can’t depend on your hate to define my love

Am I strong enough to love your soul

Love doesn’t care to receive what it gives

Bleeding compassion to extreme

Love stretches out to die for its enemies

Hey you, I love your soul

I can’t depend on your hate to define my love

Am I strong enough to love your soul

No bounds on the deep, no bounds on the wide

Am I deep enough to love your soul

God I want to swim in the deep of You

God in You I’m strong enough,

Strong enough, strong enough

I can’t depend on your hate to define my love

Am I strong enough to love your soul

No bounds on the deep, no bounds on the wide

Am I deep enough to love your soul

Skillet Your Love (Keeps Me Alive)

I walk through the desert, hide from the sun

All that I desire is You

Occasional water cools my thirst

All I that I desire is You

I don’t want to live dying on the inside

I breathe so softly, don’t feel too content

Apathy whispers and makes me think

Am I just another man whose time went fast

What does it take to be called great

I don’t want to live dying on the inside

Because Your love is better than life

Because Your voice heals me inside

Because my soul is satisfied

Because Your love keeps me alive

I cannot be silent, I­m crying out

My soul is cold, my heart is numb

I break from my old self and step into You

You complete what was never enough

Because Your love is better than life

Because Your voice heals me inside

Because my soul is satisfied

Because Your love keeps me alive

Keeps me alive with the strength to speak

This generation is dying to see

Who You are and how You free

Come Lord Jesus come

I’ve seen lots of dead men walking around

Make my heart alive

Because Your love is better than life

Because Your voice heals me inside

Because my soul is satisfied

Because Your love keeps me alive

Skillet Don’t Wake Me

I went to bed I was thinking about you

Ain’t the same since I’m living without you

All the memories are getting colder

All the things that I wanna do over

Went to bed I was thinking about you

I wanna talk and laugh like we used to

When I see you in my dreams at night

It’s so real but it’s in my mind

[Pre:]

And now

I guess

This is as good as it gets

[Chorus:]

Don’t wake me

‘Cause I don’t wanna leave this dream

Don’t wake me

‘Cause I never seem to stay asleep enough

When it’s you I’m dreaming of

I don’t wanna wake up

I went to bed I was thinking about you

And how it felt when I finally found you

It’s like a movie playing over in my head

Don’t wanna look ’cause i know how it ends

All the words that I said that I wouldn’t say

All the promises I made that I wouldn’t break

It’s last call, last song, last dance

‘Cause I can’t get you back, can’t get a second chance

And now, I guess

This is as good as it gets

[Chorus:]

Don’t wake me

‘Cause I don’t wanna leave this dream

Don’t wake me

‘Cause I never seem to stay asleep enough

When it’s you I’m dreaming of

I don’t wanna wake up

Don’t wake me

We’re together just you and me

Don’t wake me

‘Cause we’re happy like we used to be

I know I’ve gotta let you go

But I don’t wanna be alone.

[Bridge:]

These dreams of you keep on growing stronger

It ain’t a lot but it’s all I have

Nothing to do but keep sleeping longer

Don’t wanna stop cause I want you back

[Chorus:]

Don’t wake me

‘Cause I don’t wanna leave this dream

Don’t wake me

‘Cause I never seem to stay asleep enough

When it’s you I’m dreaming of

I don’t wanna wake up

Don’t wake me

We’re together just you and me

Don’t wake me

‘Cause we’re happy like we used to be

I know I’ve gotta let you go

But I don’t wanna be alone.

I went to bed I was thinking about you

‘Cause I don’t wanna leave this dream

It ain’t the same since I’m living without you.

‘Cause I never seem to stay asleep enough

I know I’ve gotta let you go

But I don’t wanna wake up.

Skillet The Last Night

You come to me with scars on your wrist

You tell me this will be the last night feeling like this

I just came to say goodbye

I didn’t want you to see me cry, I’m fine

But I know it’s a lie.

[Chorus:]

This is the last night you’ll spend alone

Look me in the eyes so I know you know

I’m everywhere you want me to be.

The last night you’ll spend alone,

I’ll wrap you in my arms and I won’t let go,

I’m everything you need me to be.

Your parents say everything is your fault

But they don’t know you like I know you they don’t know you at all

I’m so sick of when they say

It’s just a phase, you’ll be o.k. you’re fine

But I know it’s a lie.

[Chorus]

The last night away from me

[Bridge:]

The night is so long when everything’s wrong

If you give me your hand I will help you hold on

Tonight,

Tonight.

[Chorus]

I won’t let you say goodbye,

I’ll be your reason why.

The last night away from me,

Away from me.

Skillet Energy

Oh

Power is another word that I use to describe You

Your mighty winds come in and blow me away

Frightening, coming at me like lightning

It’s You that I fear, yeah, yeah

I shake whenever You speak my name

And I’m surrounded

You overpower me

You’re the sun and rain, you’re a hurricane

You are everything I cannot see and can’t explain

You’re an enigma wrapped in a mystery

Everywhere I go, I can’t escape Your energy

Oh

Divine is a reality that You define

You defy time

I see You in everything in fire and wind and rain

Captured is just the word to capture how I feel when I’m still

You are what I crave

You set me free I want to be Your slave

And I’m surrounded

You overpower me

You’re the sun and rain, you’re a hurricane

You are everything I cannot see and can’t explain

You’re an enigma wrapped in a mystery

Everywhere I go, I can’t escape Your energy

I can’t escape Your energy [8x]

Oh

Power is another word that I use to describe You

Your mighty winds come and blow me away

You’re the sun and rain, you’re a hurricane

You are everything I cannot see and can’t explain

You’re an enigma wrapped in a mystery

Everywhere I go, I can’t escape Your energy

I can’t escape it

I can’t escape, no, no, no, no, etc…

Everywhere I go, I can’t escape Your energy

Oh

Skillet Saturn

I ask him

Be free he

Said I am Asking him

Skillet You Thought

You try to answer slow

You put your head down low

C­mon take your time

Try to choose the most believable lie

You try to walk away

And tell me everything’s okay

You think you­re are saved by words

But you’re drowning in the absurd

But to me it’s no big surprise

You thought I never saw your eyes

Departed with a smile

Just like walking down the isle

You shook the preacher’s hand

But your smile can’t hide your sin

Your eyes tell me what you feel

You eyes tell me what is real

Nobody’s perfect is your prediction

Your life is proving your conviction!

To me it’s no big surprise

I saw the emptiness in your eyes

Skillet You Take My Rights Away

You take my rights away

You take control, No stopping You

You take my rights away

I can take it

See me let it go

You are in control

Suffer as we grow

And we say – we say we don’t want to

Holding nothing

You take everything

You’re worth anything at all

Anything at all

[CHORUS (repeat)]

You define me

With your identity

Lose my life in You

I can take – I’ll take what it costs me

[CHORUS (repeat)]

Just waiting

To turn your tears to roses

When darkness comes you know I’m never far

Hear the whispers in the dark

Whispers in the dark

You feel so lonely and ragged

You lay here broken and naked

To clothe you in crimson roses

I will be the one that’s gonna guide you

My love is

A burning, consuming fire

Skillet Take

Take my strength, take my pride,

Take my selfishness away

Take my rights, take ambition,

Capture me, make me a slave

Break the walls, break my bones,

Break my hardened heat

Rip my rule, rip my will,

Rip independency apart

Breathe Your life,

Breathe Your love,

Breathe You breath and I­m sustained

Take my hate, take my hurt,

Express healing to my pain

Take my flesh in all its arrogance, my stability away

Take my life, bring fire, «til only You remain

Laid out on my face (yea)

My tongue hanging out to taste (yea)

Of You and Your death (yea)

And to know Your name (yea)

Accept my gifts, take my crowns,

I spread them at your feet

When I bleed, I bleed with joy as I taste Your suffering

Flood life, flood peace, speak acceptance to my shame

Allow to kneel, allow to praise,

Give the right to speak Your name

Laid out on my face (yea)

My tongue hanging out to taste (yea)

Of You and Your death (yea)

And to know Your name (yea) [repeat]

Laid out on my face

Wanting to know your name [repeat]
