Let it Happen Lyrics

[Verse 1]

This life feels hollow and mostly borrowed

The voices are screaming, but where is the meaning?

Noisy crescendos behind closed windows

The floor is a ceiling, I can’t find the feeling

Oh, tell me, love, tell me

Am I dreaming, and where is the meaning?

Oh, tell me, love

[Chorus]

Let it happen, let it happen

Tomorrow knows what tomorrow knows

You can’t make it get here sooner

Let it happen, let it happen

I don’t hold what the future holds

But I know You’re my future

[Verse 2]

The fever is breaking, my body is aching

What’s worth defending if everything’s ending?

The current is endless, the river relentless

Love, tell me, love

Oh, am I dreaming, and what is the meaning?

Love, tell me, love, tell me

[Chorus]

Let it happen, let it happen

Tomorrow knows what tomorrow knows

You can’t make it get here sooner

Let it happen, let it happen

I don’t hold what the future holds

But I know You hold my future

[Chorus]

Let it happen, let it happen

Tomorrow knows what tomorrow knows

You can’t make it get here sooner

Let it happen, let it happen

I don’t hold what the future holds

But I know You’re my future




Native Tongue Lyrics

 

[Verse 1]

Sing to me, baby, in your native tongue

Sing the words of the wise and the young

Show me the place where your words come from

Love’s the language, love’s your native tongue

Feel your heartbeat bang the drum

Open up your eyes and fill your lungs

The same word from where the stars were flung

Love’s the language, love’s your native tongue

[Chorus]

My heart is a beating drum

My head (My head) in oblivion

My soul (My soul) such a long way from

My lips, my lungs, my native tongue

My friend, where did we go wrong?

My Lord (My Lord), we forgot our sound

My soul such a long way from

My lips, my lungs, my native tongue

Oh-whoa-oh-whoa-oh (My native tongue)
Oh-whoa-oh-whoa-oh (My native tongue)

[Verse 2]

Sing it to me, whisper into my ear

Accusers voices start to disappear

In the wind, in the tongues of the flame

In my soul, in my one true name, oh

Back before we learned the words to start a fight

Back before they told us that the haters were right

He spoke the truth, “Let there be” and there was

Love’s the language, love’s your native tongue

[Chorus]

My heart (My heart) is a beating drum

My head (My head) in oblivion

My soul (My soul) such a long way from

My lips, my lungs, my native tongue

My friend, where did we go wrong

My Lord, we forgot our sound

My soul such a long way from

My lips, my lungs, my native tongue

[Bridge]

So sing it out, get loud, get

Louder than the voices in the crowd, yeah

Even when they tried to drown you out, eh

Your lips, your lungs, your native tongue

So sing it out, get loud, get

Louder than the darkness and the doubts, eh

Louder than the curses and the shouts, yeah
Your lips, your lungs, your native tongue
Oh-whoa-oh-whoa-oh
Oh-whoa-oh-whoa-oh

[Chorus]

My heart (My heart) is a beating drum

My head (My head) in oblivion

My soul (My soul) such a long way from

My lips, my lungs, my native tongue

My friend, where did we go wrong

My Lord, we forgot our sound

My soul (My soul) such a long way from

My lips, my lungs, my native tongue

Oh-whoa-oh-whoa-oh (My native tongue)

Oh-whoa-oh-whoa-oh

[Outro]

I want the world to sing in her native tongue

To sing it like when we were young

Back before the pendulum had swung to the shadows

I want the world to sing in her native tongue

Maybe we could learn to sing along

To find a way to use our lungs for love and not the shadows

I want the world to sing in her native tongue

To sing it like when we were young

Back before the pendulum had swung to the shadows

I want the world to sing in her native tongue

Maybe we could learn to sing along

To find a way to use our lungs for love and not the shadows




All I Need Lyrics

 

[Verse 1]

Sometimes I feel so small, yeah

Like a picture on your wall, yeah

Like I’m hanging on just to fall, yeah

No matter how I try

So love sing to me gentle

That I’m more than just accidental

More than just inconsequential

Burning out tonight

[Chorus]

All I need is the air I breathe

The time we share and the ground beneath my feet

All I need is the love that I believe in

Tell me love, do you believe in me?

[Verse 2]

There’s a place down by the ocean

Where I take my mixed emotions

When my soul’s rocked by explosions

Of these tired times (Tired times)

Where love sings to me slowly

Even when I feel low and lonely

Even when the road feels like

The only friend of mine

[Chorus]

All I need is the air I breathe

The time we share and the ground beneath my feet

All I need is the love that I believe in

Tell me love, do you believe in me?

[Post-Chorus]

Oh-oh-ohh, oh-oh-ohh
Oh-oh-ohhh, oh-oh-ohh

[Bridge]

One light, one goal

One feeling in my soul

One fight, one hope

One twisting rope

I’m ready to run where the ocean meets the sky

[Chorus]

Where all I need is the air I breathe

The time we share and the ground beneath my feet

All I need is the love that I believe in

Tell me love, do you believe in me?

All I need is the air I breathe

The time we share and the ground beneath my feet

All I need is the love that I believe in

Tell me love, do you believe in me?

[Outro]

Tell me love, ’cause you’re all I need

 




Voices Lyrics

 

[Verse 1]

My words come out like an avalanche in silence

And you’ve got oceans trapped in your eyelids

They tell me that no man is an island

But it feels like it’s a storm that I’ve been fighting

[Chorus]

And I used to listen to the radio

But I’ve got an army of voices in my head

Voices in my head

And we used to live in stereo

But I’ve got an army of voices in my head

Voices in my head

[Verse 2]

How come the friends and the foes invisible

Are the ones that made my soul most miserable?

Head’s reeling from the feeling

In my mind but I feel it in the physical

Why’s the sunlight hiding?

Ain’t letting any light in

It’s a storm that I’ve been fighting

[Chorus]

And I used to listen to the radio

But I’ve got an army of voices in my head

Voices in my head

And we used to live in stereo

But I’ve got an army of voices in my head

Voices in my head

[Refrain]

And they’re singing

I got voices, I got voices

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Yeah, I got voices, I got voices

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

[Bridge]

Every moment crowded with choices

Speak to me and drown out the voices

[Chorus]

And I used to listen to the radio

But I’ve got an army of voices in my head

Voices in my head (Voices in my head)

And we used to live in stereo

But I’ve got an army of voices in my head

Voices in my head

Voices!




Dig New Streams Lyrics

 

[Verse 1]

Melody starts, echoing breath

Echoing fear, echoing death

Echoing real, echoing dream

Echoing drop, echoing stream

Worn and dirty rivers find the sea
Brutally routine

[Chorus]

Love, let us dig new streams

Love, let us live new streams

Where water and word are clean

[Verse 2]

I got thirty voices in my head

They’ve been telling me to quit while I’m ahead
But I’m not ahead

I’m digging well my blood’s still red

I’m digging for the streams beneath my bed

Underneath my head

I’m headed down to New Orleans

I’m headed down to New Orleans

I’m headed down to chase these dreams

I’m headed down to New Orleans

[Bridge]

Come all you worn out, burn out, sick and tired

Come all you fake, pretentious suit and ties

Come with your filthy hands and your blackened eyes

If you’ve been hurt by the birds and the bees of life

If you’ve been hurt by the church of black and white

Come unto me, find rest, my burden’s light

[Refrain]

People put your hands up! Let me know you!
People put your hands up! Let me know you!
People put your hands up! Let me know you!
People put your hands up! Let me know you!
People put your hands up! Let me know you!

People put your hands up! Let me know, let me know you!

[Chorus]

Love, let us dig new streams
Love, let us live new streams

Where water and word are clean

Love, let us dig new streams




Joy Invincible Lyrics

 

[Verse 1]

Everything fell to pieces

When my eyes met yours

In that hospital gown

And the dreams we once were dreaming

That we held so close

Felt impossible now

And all the plans we held for the future

And all the memories up from the past

The world that I once knew

Was in a cardboard box

In the lobby lost and found

[Chorus]

Hallelujah, nevertheless

Was the song the pain couldn’t destroy

Hallelujah, nevertheless

You’re my joy invincible

Joy invincible, joy

Joy invincible, joy invincible, joy

Joy invincible, joy invincible

[Verse 2]

Tears were in my eyes when the phone rings

If only life didn’t need us to be this brave

But we don’t live in the world of if only’s

Stretched tight in between our birth and our graves

[Chorus]

Hallelujah, nevertheless

Was the song the pain couldn’t destroy

Hallelujah, nevertheless

You’re my joy invincible

Joy invincible, joy

[Bridge]

Open your eyes

Look to the skies

We are the children of the promise

Hold to what’s real

Everything heals

We are the children of the promise

Open your heart

Look for the sparks

We are the children of the promise

Love is your place

Feel the light on your face

We are the children of the promise

[Refrain]

Tears were in my eyes when the phone rings

Maybe it’s Your joy that’s giving me strength

[Chorus]

Hallelujah nevertheless

Was the song the pain couldn’t destroy

Hallelujah nevertheless

You’re my joy invincible

Joy invincible, joy

Joy invincible, joy invincible, joy

Yeah, You’re my joy invincible, joy invincible, joy

 



Prodigal Soul Lyrics

 

[Verse 1]

The sun comes up alone

Like a funeral for my home

Like a mirror for my soul

But I should’ve known better

I was feeling like skin and bones

I kept chasing after these ghosts

I kept giving up on these hopes

When I found Your letter

[Pre-Chorus]

I am Yours and Yours alone

Forgive me for my wandering on my own

[Chorus]

I’m a prodigal soul

And I want to come home

I can’t make it alone

Won’t You bring me home?

[Verse 2]

Tried to start on something new

Tried to blame myself on You

But my nightmares all came true

I felt so unsteady

I still see Your face when I close my eyes and

I think about You wide awake at night and

How far do I have to go to realize

What I know already

[Pre-Chorus]

I am Yours and Yours alone

Forgive me for my wandering on my own

[Chorus]

I’m a prodigal soul

And I want to come home

I can’t make it alone

Won’t you bring me home?

[Bridge]

I was running on empty

I was feeling so low

When You made me a promise

To never let me go

I was falling to pieces

When You carried me home

When You told me you loved me

And my prodigal soul

And I want to come home

I can’t make it alone

And I want to come home

Yeah, I want to come home

[Outro]

I’m a prodigal soul

Yeah, but I’m coming home

I can’t make, I can’t make it alone, yeah

And I want to come home, yeah

In my dreams, all is forgiven

In my dreams, I’m by Your side

But when I wake up something’s missing

Can You free me from my prodigal soul?

Yeah, won’t You bring me home?

 




The Hardest Art Lyrics

 

[Verse 1]

You’re still there in the back of my mind

In that sunset together

Looking back I see the warning signs

Calling us now or never

[Chorus]

Every movie makes love seem easy

They fall in love like the fire burns

And maybe I’m the only one

But it feels like love is the hardest art to learn

[Verse 2: Kaela Sinclair]

Stepping into the neon sky

Compass set on forever

We swim for shore in the bright red tide

With notes that time couldn’t sever

[Chorus: Kaela Sinclair]

Every movie makes love seem easy

They fall in love like the fire burns

And maybe I’m the only one

But it feels like love is the hardest art to learn

[Bridge]

Love is

Surrender is

Love is

Surrender is

Love is the hardest art

The hardest art is

Love is

Surrender is

Love is

Surrender is

Love is the hardest art

[Refrain: Jon Foreman & Kaela Sinclair]

Every movie makes love seem easy

They fall in love like the fire burns

And maybe I’m the only one

But it feels like love is the hardest art to learn

Yes, it feels like love is the hardest art

[Outro]

Is the hardest art to learn

The hardest art is

Love is

Surrender is

Love is

Surrender is

Love is the hardest art

The hardest art is

Love is

Surrender is

Love is

Surrender is

Love is the hardest art

 





Wonderful Feeling Lyrics

 

[Verse 1]

Sunlight

Ain’t it good to feel alright?

Ain’t it good to know that you’re not alone?

Yeah, ain’t it good to know?

’Cause I lived my whole life

Looking for the light with closed eyes

Ain’t it funny how you fight what you need the most?

Yeah, but I can finally feel my soul tonight

 

[Chorus]

I’ve got this wonderful feeling

I’ve got my hopes set high, high, high

And after all this time spent chasing my shadow

Let Your light be mine

Let Your light be mine

[Verse 2]

Come on sunlight, prove the darkness wrong

Ain’t it funny how the fears we had last night

Don’t look so scary in the morning light?

And come on, flowers open up your arms

Ain’t it good to finally step into that light?

Yeah, and I can feel it in my soul tonight

[Chorus]

I’ve got this wonderful feeling

I’ve got my hopes set high, high, high

And after all this time spent chasing my shadow

Let Your light be mine
Let Your light be mine

 

[Bridge]

Like a waterfall that’s washing over my shadows

Like a waterfall I’m under now (Now, now)

Let your water fall and

Let all of Your love pour down

Down, down
Down, down
Down, down
Down, down

Yeah, but I can finally feel my soul tonight and

[Chorus]

I’ve got this wonderful feeling (Wonderful feeling)

I’ve got my hopes set high, high, high (I’ve got my hopes set high)

And after all this time spent chasing my shadows

Let Your light be mine

Let Your light be mine (Let Your light be mine)

Let Your light be mine (Let Your light be mine)

Let Your light be mine
Let Your light be mine

 




Take My Fire Lyrics

 

[Verse 1]

Everyday enemy tried to get the best of me

The enemy under my skin

Everyday enemy, my fatal flaw anatomy

Feeling like I just can’t win

Sometimes I wish I didn’t feel that much

Sometimes I wish I didn’t need that touch, but

Everyday my enemy pretend to be a friend to me

No matter what state I’m in

[Chorus]

But you’re never going to take my fire

I cannot be tamed

No you’re never gonna take my fire

It’s burning in my veins, hey

You say the world is changing

But I still burn the same

No you’re never gonna take my fire, take my fire

Let me burn now, yeah

[Verse 2]

The safety that you’re selling me

One day be the death of me

A face like you just saw ghosts

Images on the box again

Takin’ up all the oxygen

Tell me how we sunk this low

Ain’t it coming, ain’t the end in sight?

To steal it back like a thief in the night

There’s my own sworn enemy

Faking and pretend to be

A wolf in a sheepskin coat

[Chorus]

But you’re never going to take my fire

In spite of all your rain

No you’re never gonna take my fire

It’s burning in my veins, hey

You say the world is changing

But I still burn the same

No you’re never gonna take my fire, take my fire, because

[Bridge]

I’m a fighter, a soul all-nighter

I’ma recognize the truth, I’ma recognize a liar

You’re never gonna take my fire

True beginner, a loser and a winner

Part saint, part sinner, and all of me desire

You’re never gonna take my fire

I’m a giver, a one arrow quiver

I’ve been sending my regrets down the river of fire

You’re never gonna take my

My fire, a loose, live wire

I’m a one-shot rocket aiming higher and higher (And higher)

[Chorus]

‘Cause you’re never gonna take my fire, hey

No, you’re never gonna take my fire, oh, oh, oh, oh

The ancient flame lit the spark back before I was young

When I’m speaking with the fire it’s my native tongue

No you’re never gonna take my fire, take my fire

Let me burn now

 




The Strength to let Go Lyrics

 

[Verse 1]

I don’t like to admit

When I’m wrong and need gifts

Of forgiveness instead of applause

I was dying to prove to myself I could make it alone

Hah, yeah

It took years to confess

That your love was the best

At unraveling all of my pride

Had to laugh at myself when I realized that you were my home

[Chorus]

Give me the strength to let go

Give me the strength to surrender

Give me the strength to stop holding on

I’ve been holding on so long

Give me the strength to let go

And show me the way to come home
And show me the way to come home

[Verse 2]

Yeah, I’m stubborn and bold

But sometimes it gets old

Fighting voices inside of my brain

I was trying to pretend I was fine when inside it was war

With the stumbling beat

Of my heart and my feet

And the faults of my failures and pains

To think all of this time, I had wings that were ready to soar

[Chorus]

Give me the strength to let go

Give me the strength to surrender

Give me the strength to stop holding on

I’ve been holding on so long

Give me the strength to let go

And show me the way to come home

And show me the way to come home

[Bridge]

Oh love, light the way home

Light up my soul, I choose mercy instead of control

My life is on loan, forgive and let go

I embrace a belief I don’t know

What a beautiful sound, to lay your life down

Your forgiveness is where I am found

Here in your arms, I finally let down

I am lightning and you are the ground
I am lightning and you are the ground

[Chorus]

Give me the strength to let go

Won’t you give me the faith to surrender?

Come on, give me the strength to stop holding on

I’ve been holding on so long

Won’t you give me the strength to let go?

And show me the way to come home

(I am lightning and you are the ground)

Won’t you show me the way to come home?

(I am lightning and you are the ground)

Show me the way to come home




Oxygen Lyrics

 

[Verse 1]

You were there at the door

You said, “I don’t know how to say this

But I want more

I don’t know how you’re gonna take this”

And my mind went sore

And my body went weightless

I couldn’t find the floor
I couldn’t find the floor

[Chorus]

And you walked away

And I saw fireworks imploding frame by frame

Like watching a movie in slow motion, I’m miles away

Up like a rocket ship ascends, it’s drifting up into space

And I’m running out of oxygen

[Verse 2]

We can’t go back to the first

Losing stories like leap year

With fake smiles and words

Just a ghost left to be near

I’m not sure how this works

What do you want me to say, dear?

All I know is it hurts
All I know is it hurts

 

[Chorus]

And you walked away

And I saw fireworks imploding frame by frame

Like watching a movie in slow motion, I’m miles away

Up like a rocket ship ascends, it’s drifting up into space

And I’m running out of oxygen

[Bridge]

I’m drifting out of the hemisphere

So far away

All of the memories disappear

And start to fade

[Chorus]

And you walked away

And I saw fireworks imploding frame by frame

Like watching a movie in slow motion, I’m miles away

Up like a rocket ship ascends, it’s drifting up into space

And I’m running out of oxygen




We’re Gonna be Alright Lyrics

 

[Intro]

One, two, three

[Verse 1]

It’s okay to fear

It’s okay when you feel small

And you’re okay right here

It’s okay when you feel nothing at all

And it’s okay to find out

What you thought you had ain’t what you got

And it’s okay to doubt

To learn what you think ain’t what you thought

[Pre-Chorus]

And we are always in motion

Like the winds, the tides, the ocean

And every day I’m born again

I wake up, I feel that second wind

[Chorus]

We’re gonna be alright, we’re gonna be alright

I’ve seen the look in your eye

We’re gonna be alright

I said we’re gonna be alright, we’re gonna be alright

Just take a look at the sky

We’re gonna be alright

 

[Verse 2]

Oh, it’s okay to grieve

It’s okay to learn to fall

And it’s okay to believe

To admit that you’re human after all

And it’s okay to heal

All of the scars that are buried deep inside

And it’s okay to feel

To say all the things you’ve been trying to hide

[Pre-Chorus]

And we are always in motion

Like the winds, the tides, the ocean

And every day I’m born again

I wake up, I feel that second wind

[Chorus]

We’re gonna be alright, we’re gonna be alright

I’ve seen the look in your eye

We’re gonna be alright

I said we’re gonna be alright, we’re gonna be alright

Just take a look at the sky

We’re gonna be alright

[Bridge]

Lift it up to the ceiling

‘Cause we all need that healing

Let’s get lost in the feeling, the feeling, the feeling

Lift it up to the ceiling

‘Cause we all need that healing

Let’s get lost in the feeling, the feeling, the feeling

(Yeah, we’re gonna be alright)

 

 

[Chorus]

We’re gonna be alright, we’re gonna be alright

I’ve seen the look in your eye

We’re gonna be alright

I said we’re gonna be alright, we’re gonna be alright

Just take a look at the sky

We’re gonna be alright

[Outro]

We’re gonna be alright, we’re gonna be alright

I’ve seen the look in your eye

We’re gonna be alright

I said we’re gonna be alright, we’re gonna be alright

Just take a look at the sky

We’re gonna be alright




You’re the One I Want Lyrics

 

[Verse 1]

There are countless stars in the sky tonight

And the city glows with a million lights

But of all this bright that I see tonight

You’re the one I want

[Verse 2]

There are countless mountains left to climb

With these butterflies I still feel inside

But it’s just us here in the candlelight

And you’re the one I want

[Verse 3]

There are countless memories lost, forgotten, thrown into the wind

There are countless words I wish I never said

There are countless explorations that I’m longing to begin

But you’re the one I want

You’re the one I want

[Verse 4]

There are countless souls wide awake tonight

With the countless questions on my mind

And a million clocks that I can’t unwind

But you’re the one I want
