Unconditional Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level chelsea485
1. No Ordinary Love
Here I stand nothing more than a broken man
Staring death in the face
All my mistakes have got a hold on me again
Here we go, another day another fork in the road
I never know who to trust
Will someone just tell me which way to go?

I need a sign, I need a miracle!
I need to know that this is possible
I've just failed so many times
Is there any way I could make it right?
God, if you're there I need to hear you now!

Come back to me love, I forgive you
Oh how I've missed you!
Just know every time you run
I'll be right here waiting!

Yeah!

This is no ordinary love
Listen up, listen up!
This is no ordinary love
Listen up, this is unconditional

I'm so afraid to admit that you're real
Cause I'm afraid of what I might feel
When your words start to come to life
And it brings my demons into the light, but...

I know you're here
I shiver as you whisper in my ear
"Child have no fear"

Come back to me love, I forgive you
Oh how I've missed you!
Just know every time you run
I'll be right here waiting!

Come back to me love
I hope you know I'm always with you
Oh I forgive you!

We lose faith in things unseen
Unsure of what to believe
Just dying to be loved
When love's right in front of us

We give up on our hopes & dreams
And let doubt take everything
The door will open when we realize
We don't hold the key

I tried to save myself but I failed!
But I failed!

Come back to me love, I forgive you
Oh how I've missed you!
Every time you run
I'll be right here waiting!

Come back to me love
I hope you know I'm always with you
I forgive you!
2. Beneath the Skin
Another day she sets foot in this prison, dreading what they'll say.
So much to give, but no one ever listens.
She dreams of running away.
Crippled by the way they make her feel, she takes a look at her wrists & turns to the blade. It's not a cry for attention if she just wants to feel anything other than the pain.
Everyone deserves to be loved, but they make her hate everything she was sure of!
Every day feels like her against the world.
Now she's afraid she'll never be enough.

No one knows all the weight that she holds when she feels alone.
The memories, they haunt her.
No one sees all the pain she brings everywhere she goes.
She feels they'll never want her.

She dreams of a day when she won't have to cry herself to sleep.
Staring at the scars on her wrists she knows this is not who she wants to be.
Another night all alone with her thoughts, dwelling on the questions that race through her head.
Scared to sleep, scared to wake up & face the day when she can't forget the things that they said.

No one knows all the weight that she holds when she feels alone.
The memories, they haunt her.
No one sees all the pain she brings everywhere she goes.
She feels they'll never want her.

All she wants is someone to notice; so sick of feeling invisible.
All she needs is someone to care.
If only they could see that she's incredible.
She dreams of a day when she won't have to cry herself to sleep.
Is our generation too blind to see true beauty lies beneath the skin?
So ignorant!
Are they too cold, too numb to see the lifelong effects of the pain they inflict?
Is our generation too blind to see true beauty lies beneath the skin?

No one knows all the weight that she holds when she feels alone.
No one sees all the pain she brings everywhere she goes.
No one knows all the weight that she holds when she feels alone.
The memories, they haunt her.

No one sees all the pain she brings everywhere she goes.
She feels they'll never want her.
All she wants is someone to notice; so sick of feeling invisible.
All she needs is someone to care.
If only they could see that she's incredible.
She dreams of a day when she won't have to cry herself to sleep.
Staring at the scars on her wrists she knows this is not who she wants to be.
3. Sleepless Nights
I stare deep down into the eyes of my nightmares
As they come to life
I feel my heart beat right out of my chest
and I think I might be losing the fight
(I might be losing it)

I live inside my poisoned mind
It leaves me paralyzed (it leaves me paralyzed)
My visions blurred
My words are slurred
I think I might, might die tonight

This shadow follows me
It always keeps me on the edge
I know that I would never jump
So why cant I step back from the ledge?
Am I losing control?

You take me to the darkest places I have ever been
I think I feel it coming back again

Why am I terrified of everything I used to love
Save me from myself I don't want to hate who I've become
Inhale, exhale
Why is it so hard to breathe
Inhale exhale
Why isn't this working?!
If I live to see the other side of this
I swear I'll never take for granted any happiness
I never knew what i had until it was gone
How long will this go on?

Why am I terrified of everything I used to love
Save me from myself I don't want to hate who I've become
Tell me that tomorrow when I wake up I'll be fine
I just want to be myself again
I want to know that I'm alive

Tell me is there something that I'm learning from this?
I try my best to make the most of it
Maybe i just need to see the bigger picture
Show me how it ends

If I have to feel this forever,
I'd rather feel nothing at all.

[Spoken:]
Bring me back to life
I just can't take another sleepless night
Bring me back to life
Give me the clarity to see the light

I know that you can take this away
So I'm praying that today is the day
Oh, I pray that today is the day
Bring me back to life

Why am I terrified of everything I used to love
Save me from myself I don't want to hate who I've become
Tell me that tomorrow when I wake up I'll be fine
I just want to be myself again
I want to know that I'm alive

Please give me peace
Give me joy
Give me sanity,
Give me hope
Give me love
Give me truth.
4. The Answer
I hit the bottom of my lowest lows
My darkest hours are the times I grow
And every time I am broken I know that it's only so I can be restored

I never would have found my way
If I didn't realize I was lost in the first place
Amazing grace how sweet the sound
I never could have picked myself up off the ground

Oh now I see (now I see)
It's not about the things I've done, but what you've done in me
Now I see fear is irrelevant 'cause you know my every need

I'm reaching out
You pull me out of the depths, I see you now
I'm letting go of the rest and I won't fear the fall
'Cause I know that you'll be there to catch me
I'll look to you when there's trouble at sea
'Cause I can walk on water when I believe
And now I know it's true, you are the answer to everything

How could I fear this heartbeat that beats for you?
How could I fear this heartbeat that beats for you?
I'm letting go of every fear I hold on to

Well I don't know what the future holds
But I know who holds it and it's beautiful
Every time that I fall short I'm so thankful I'm not in control
I'm reaching out I see you now
And I won't fear the fall 'cause I know that you'll be there

I'm reaching out
You pull me out of the depths, I see you now
I'm letting go of the rest and I won't fear the fall
'Cause I know that you'll be there to catch me
I'll look to you when there's trouble at sea
'Cause I can walk on water when I believe
And now I know it's true, you are the answer to everything
(The answer to everything
The answer to everything
The answer to everything)

When my thoughts take shape like a demon, I will rest in you (I will rest in you)
The peace I find in my quiet mind comes from knowing that your word is true
You are more than enough!
ANd now I'm certain that the best is yet to come (best is yet to come)
You are more than enough!
The best is yet to come

I'm reaching out
You pull me out of the depths, I see you now
I'm letting go of the rest and I won't fear the fall
'Cause I know that you'll be there to catch me
I'll look to you when there's trouble at sea
'Cause I can walk on water when I believe
And now I know it's true, you are the answer to everything
5. Possibilities
So caught up in our own day-to-day, we see lives in need & look the other way.
I'm not a pessimist, but I think it's safe to say this would be different if it was your family. We can't fathom not having a place to rest our heads.
Can you imagine the pain of a newborn child that won't be fed?
It's so easy getting comfortable.
We ignore the empty hands in need, thinking someone else will see them.

Can you see the possibilities?
We have the ability to change the World!
If we want to see a change we have to be it.
Stand up & believe that the responsibility's ours!

Day after day they continue to die so we think our prayers go unheard, but poverty ends where compassion begins.
We can no longer deny it's up to us.
It's up to us!
We are the chosen ones, called to be bold!
There is no time to hesitate.
Today is the day we can break the mold!

Can you see the possibilities?
We have the ability to change the World!
If we want to see a change we have to be it.
Stand up & believe that the responsibility's ours!

Their starving eyes cry out for anyone to listen, reaching out for anyone to care.
Would we ignore them now if they were our own children or make a promise to always be there?
Remove the veil from your eyes!
We could move mountains if we only tried!
Remove the veil from your eyes!
We hold the power in our hands to save their lives!

Can you see the possibilities?
We have the ability to change the World!
If we want to see a change we have to be it.
Stand up & believe that the responsibility's ours!
6. Speechless
It's a mystery, too good to be true.
I find my purpose when I look at you.
I bleed transparent.
It's not the way I choose, but it's only when I'm vulnerable my true colors shine through.

For a moment, I'm a poet without words, speechless because you love me at my worst.
I don't deserve this.
I let it surface & all I know is today I woke up falling in love again.

Starving artist, no match for a queen, but walls come down & love's limitless when you find what's meant to be.
Supernatural, it's more than what we see.
A trust that can't be broken seemed impossible to me, but I've tasted true love & I believe!

For a moment, I'm a poet without words, speechless because you love me at my worst.
I don't deserve this.
I let it surface & all I know is today I woke up falling in love again.

For a moment, I'm a poet without words, speechless because you love me at my worst.
I don't deserve this.
I let it surface & all I know is today I woke up falling in love again.
7. The Rose
Swimming against the current, it's been this way from day one.
Always an uphill battle, we never got a single handout from anyone.
So tell me, if we were "damaged goods," then what does that make you?
As far as I'm concerned, you're nothing more than just a worthless suit.

We are the rose.
We are the rose that grew from the crack in the concrete.
I never doubted for a second even when you left us on our own.
Don't you wish you would have known?
How does it feel now that you're in the back seat?
I guess you should have had a little more faith in me.

Now I won't take all the credit, but you sure don't deserve an ounce.
So go & talk the talk while we walk the walk.
There's no way that you can stop us now!

We are the rose.
We are the rose that grew from the crack in the concrete.
I never doubted for a second even when you left us on our own.
Don't you wish you would have known?
How does it feel now that you're in the back seat?
I guess you should have had a little more faith in me.

You can lie.
You can cheat your way through life.
You can take what you don't deserve until you die.
You can lie.
You can cheat your way through life.
You can take what you don't deserve until you die.
You can lie.
You can cheat your way through life.

You can take what you don't deserve until you die, but you can never take away our pride.
Because when they said we couldn't WE DID!
One day you'll be forgotten.
When they said we couldn't WE DID!
They'll remember our name forever, because when they said we couldn't WE DID!

I forgive you.
It's not your fault you couldn't see what I saw.
You never were to care about the underdog.

We are the rose.
We are the rose that grew from the crack in the concrete.
I never doubted for a second even when you left us on our own.
Don't you wish you would have known?
How does it feel now that you're in the back seat?
I guess you should have had a little more faith in me.

We are the rose.
We are the rose that grew from the crack in the concrete.
I never doubted for a second even when you left us on our own.
You left us on our own!
I guess you should have had a little more faith in me.
8. Not Enough
I take a deep breath into my lungs, let it out & move on.
I take a step back & look at all that I've done.
Why does it feel like I'm right back where I started from?
How can it be I need more when I've already won?
Just when I think I've got it all figured out you grab my hand & say not so fast, boy don't you see there is so much more!

I'm at the top of the world & I feel it, but it's not enough for me.
No it's not enough for me!
I used to think I'd find myself at the top above all the pain & the failure I saw.
Now that I'm here I see it's not what I wanted at all.

I feel it in my bones.
It's in my blood.
A constant search for the one true love.
Show me something real, I want to feel your touch.
What is enough?
Show me enough!

I'm at the top of the world & I feel it, but it's not enough for me.
No it's not enough for me!
I want to live forever!
Give me open eyes to see this is not enough for me!

This world wants me dead.
Dead to the truth & buried from the inside out, but I can't hide the hope I've found in you. This world wants me dead.
Dead to the truth & buried from the inside out, but I cannot be shaken I won't be moved.
My crown is eternal!

I'm at the top of the world & I feel it, but it's not enough for me.
No it's not enough for me!
I want to live forever!
Give me open eyes to see this is not enough for me!
9. Need to Be
With every letter I read,
I see their desperate cries to find the missing piece.
They just want to believe,
someone can take away the burdens they carry.
Who am I to be here?
I am no different than them.
We are the same you see?

I wear my heart on my sleeve,
For everyone to see,
The man I want to be.
I just hope they see you,
When they look at me,
Because you are everything that I need to be.

My heart is heavy and torn,
Weighed down by all my mistakes and the chains I've worn.
A constant struggle with fear,
Unsure if I was enough from the day I was born.
But you see the beauty in my flaws;
You pick me up when I fall,
Show me the way when I am lost.
In the eye of the storm you show me I'm not alone,
And give me strength to carry on!

I wear my heart on my sleeve,
For everyone to see,
The man I want to be.
I just hope they see you when they look at me,
Cause you are everything that I need to be.

I wear my heart on my sleeve,
For everyone to see,
The man I want to be.
And I just hope they see you when they look at me,
Cause you are everything that I need to be.

I wear my heart on my sleeve,
For everyone to see,
The man I want to be.
I just hope they see you when they look at me,
Cause you are everything that I need to be.
10. Pharisees
Somewhere along the line you must have missed the point, this is not about you.
You twist the words of The Gospel to glorify yourself, but this is not about you!
Take the spotlight off the things that you've done & realize he did what you never could.
He carries the weight that you could never hold & even if you had the chance you never would.
Hypocrite!
You think you're superior?
Hypocrite!
Do you really think belittling is the cure?

You walk around with your head held high as if you're not the one that's living a lie.
You're living a lie!
What makes you think that you'll change their minds?
They'll never see the light if all you preach is hate from a mountain top that you couldn't climb.

Say what you want, but behind closed doors you fight the same demons as everyone else. Say what you will, but you look like a fool to the rest of the world that knows that no one's perfect.
You live a lie!
Modern day Pharisees.
Open up your eyes!
You never practice what you preach.
You live a lie!
Modern day Pharisees.
Open up your eyes!
You never practice what you preach.
Who gave you the right?

You walk around with your head held high as if you're not the one that's living a lie.
You're living a lie!
What makes you think that you'll change their minds?
They'll never see the light if all you preach is hate from a mountain top that you couldn't climb.

The next time you feel the right to preach about Commandments that you know you do not keep, realize that it was Grace that saved you & do us all a favor, keep your self-righteous mouth shut!
Keep your mouth shut!
Keep your self-righteous mouth shut!
GRACE GRACE GRACE GRACE!
We are all at the mercy of GRACE GRACE GRACE GRACE!
You are no different than the rest of us.

You walk around with your head held high as if you're not the one that's living a lie.
You're living a lie!
What makes you think that you'll change their minds?
They'll never see the light if all you preach is hate from a mountain top that you couldn't climb.
From a mountain top that you could never climb!
11. Divinity
It's three o'clock in the morning,
you lie awake with a heavy heart
You're thinking, "What is the meaning?
Was I a waste? A mistake from the start?"
You just can't seem to remember
The last time anyone seemed to care
And all passion seems to wither
When it seems you have no purpose here

But you hold the power to be
The living, breathing purpose you were made to be
(Don't throw it away!)
It only takes one spark to start an everlasting fire in your heart

Destiny is different than a dream
Despite our failures and our shortcomings
We all have divine purpose to be nothing short of a miracle story

You hold the power to be
The living breathing purpose you were made to be
And it only takes one small spark
To start an everlasting fire in your heart
To start an everlasting fire in your heart
There is a plan and you're an important part

There is relief in the coming days
Even if you can't see it now
When you look back on the difference that you made
It will erase every second of doubt

Destiny is different than a dream
Despite our failures and our shortcomings
We all have divine purpose to be nothing short of a miracle story
Destiny is different than a dream
Despite our failures and our shortcomings
We all have divine purpose to be nothing short of a miracle story

I pray for clarity, for those who are questioning it all
I pray they'll hear the answers when they call
You are special, you are loved!
A perfect reflection of heaven above
And God makes no mistakes, you are a miracle story
A miracle story
And God makes no mistakes, you are a miracle story


I pray for clarity, for those who are questioning it all (it all, it all)
I pray they'll hear the answers when they call
And God makes no mistakes, you are a miracle story
And God makes no mistakes, you are a miracle story

I pray for clarity, for those who are questioning it all
I pray they'll hear the answers when they call
(A perfect reflection of heaven above...)
