Reborn Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Open Your Eyes (4:02)
Signs surround us
We fail to see
Through the simplicity of ourselves
Our crimes have found us
We try to escape every day from this cell
There's no way out when you're living in hell (unless you)
Open your eyes
Loosen the vice that constrains you
Open your eyes
Burn the disguise that you wear
Open your eyes
Break the unfaith that controls you
Open your eyes
The truth will be there
Stones have crushed us
Water has rotted
The walls of our crumbling domain
The fire has rushed us
It's burning the waste that we grasp and cling to
There is a way out, but you'll never climb through (unless you)

[Repeat Chorus]
2. Reborn (3:27)
If you believe in my love
If you believe in my pain
If you believe in my jealousy
If you believe in my faith
If you believe in my hope
If you believe in my misery
If you believe in my way
If you believe in my word
If you believe in my honesty
If you believe in my life
If you believe in my death
If you believe in my memory
I'll crush the chains that bind
And make you feel you're born again
(Reborn again, reborn again)
Your freed heart, soul and mind
Will make you feel you're born again
If you believe in my grace
If you believe in my peace
If you believe in my nobility
If you believe in my power
If you believe in my strength
If you believe in humility
If you believe in my way
If you believe in my word
If you believe in my honesty
If you believe in my life
If you believe in my death
If you believe in my memory

I'll crush the chains that bind
And make you feel you're born again
(Reborn again, reborn again)
Your freed heart, soul and mind
Will make you feel you're born again
Yeah, born again
I'll crush the chains that bind
And make you feel you're born again
(Reborn again, reborn again)
Your freed heart, soul and mind
Will make you feel you're born again
Yeah born again
Your freed heart, soul and mind will make you feel you're born again
Yeah, born again
3. When Did I See You Cry (3:35)
Someone's child but no one's friend
A city street alone again
Funny how tears don't wash away
Even in December rain
Someone's child you'd never meet
Merchandise on a darkened street
A painted face with a child's eyes
A paradox of sad disguise
When did I see You cry oh Lord
When were You all alone
When did I see You so far away from home
Someone's child now half alive
Lives in a bottle just to survive
Had a home and had a wife
That's a story from a different life
We've all seen him a time or two
He's not all that different from me and you
He's more than a face or a name
He's a reason why You came
When did I see You cry oh Lord
When were You all alone
When did I see You so far away
You say I closed my eyes
You say I closed my heart
I never stopped looking
You say I didn't start
When did I see You cry oh Lord
When were you all alone
When did I see You so far away, so far away, so far away from home

[Repeat Chorus]
4. Make You Mine (4:01)
I need Your love, I wanna be close to You
I need Your touch, it makes me feel refined
I need Your heart, it warms me when I'm frozen through
But I walked away, left You to stay, with no explanation
Now I realize, my darkened skies, won't shine without Your light
Will You forgive me
Can You forget the old me
If You let me
I want to make You mine
I see Your face, and suddenly my heart stands still
And when You smile, I'm lost within Your perfect world
But I walked away, left You to stay, with no explanation
Now I realize, my darkened skies, won't shine without Your light
But I broke Your heart, right from the start, and it's killing me inside
I know I can be, the one You see, if I throw away my pride
Will You forgive me
Can You forget the old me
If You let me, I want to make You mine
I want to make You mine
I want to make You mine

[Repeat]
5. Passion (3:48)
I'm all alone and no one's home
I cannot find my way
No bed, no lights, no telephone
It's no place to stay
Don't You know, don't You know
I built this life from in and out
Pursued a career
That weakened me to petty doubt
And frivolous fear
Don't You know, don't You know
Jesus Christ, I want to serve You
I want what You want for me
Sacrifice, I don't deserve You
Through Your passion I am free

It's funny how I see myself
As wounded and scarred
When my reality itself
Proved selfish and hard
Don't You know, oh, don't You know
I'm living in a painted world
Where everything's dry
The only water that I've seen
Was painfully cried
Don't You know, don't You know
Hey I want what You want for me
Yeah I want what You want for me
I want what You want for me
I want what You want for me
I'm all alone and no one's home
I cannot find my way
No bed, no lights, no telephone
It's no place to stay

[Repeat Chorus]
6. Live Again (3:30)
Take me and I lay down my life
And break me, cut the cancer with a knife
Teach me, what is wrong from what is right
And show me, when to walk and when to fight
I am weak, I'm never strong
I've been upside down for way too long
I'm sick and tired of no real change
Can You help me rearrange
My life 'cause I really want to live again
I want to live again
So shake me, I'm a man who's settled
I'm a man who's settled in, settled in
Can You clean me, I'm so dirty from within
I am weak, I'm never strong
I've been upside down for way too long
I'm sick and tired of no real change
Can You help me rearrange
My life cause I really want to live again
Ooh yes I am weak, I'm never strong
I've been upside down for way too long
I am weak, I'm never strong
I've been upside down for way too long
I'm sick and tired of no real change
I said, can You help me live again
7. If I Die (3:22)
You are my air
You are the ground that I stand upon
Oh, and I love You
You are the light
The moon in the night and the sun of every dawn
And I need Your touch to heal me
You're the one that I glorify
If I die today
I know I can say
I don't have one regret
' Cause I own Your redemption
As long as I breathe
I'll always believe
That You took this life
And painted it with definition
So I am Yours
Living was hard
And loneliness easily justified
Oh, then I found You
Ooh, I suddenly knew
What I wanted to do was to make You satisfied
And not to die for selfish pleasure
But to live with You by my side
If I die today
I know I can say
I don't have one regret
' Cause I own Your redemption
As long as I breathe
I'll always believe
That You took this life
And painted it with definition
I am Yours. I am Yours. I am Yours. I am Yours.

[Repeat Chorus]

If I die today
I won't regret
' Cause I won Your redemption
As long as I breathe
I'll always believe
That you took this life
And painted it with definition
I am Yours
8. Wait for You (3:43)
You go left
I head in the right direction
I go up
You go down
I take my time
You rush every situation
I go straight
You go around
But I'll wait for You
Oh I'll wait for You
Yes I'll wait for You
Oh I'll wait for You
I'm awake
You're tired and You feel like sleeping
When You're cold
I'm on fire, yeah
You repeat yourself
I say it once, and it's the one I'm keeping
You go low
And I go high
Oh I'll wait for You
Yes I'll wait for You
Yes I'll wait for You
Oh I'll wait for You
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, I'll wait
Oh I'll wait for You
Yes I'll wait for You
Yes I'll wait for You
Oh I'll wait for You
And I'll wait
Oh I'll wait for You
Oh I'll wait for You
9. Rain (3:45)
Breathing, it once was so easy
Now I'm torn between the sky and the water that climbs up
And drowns me in sleep
I remember, the moon caught in the trees
The stars would fall and dance from branch to branch
And watch me believe, hey, summer follows fall
When I'm watching the rain
Melt my window away
Will You hold me here in Your arms
When I'm sinking in pain
And I'm thinking love's late
Will You hold me here in the night
Constants, always change their mind
All is so sublime then I blink and I find
That it's written in rain
Oh after, is the sweetest smell of spring
Years and years before I could see past the storm
But it's harder now, believing that summer follows fall

[Repeat Chorus]
10. 10,000 Years (3:15)
Amazing, amazing grace
How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once, I once was lost
But now I'm found
Was blind but now I see
When we've been there
Ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun
We've no less days
To sing God's praise
Than when we first begun
It was grace, it was grace that taught
My heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
How, how, how, how precious, how precious did
Oh that grace appear
The hour I first believed

[Repeat Chorus]
11. I.G.W.T. (3:17)
It's been said money talks, if so what does it say
Four simple words we see every day
The rich, the poor, heaven is for those who choose
Don't put your trust in money you'll lose
Again and again
In God we trust, in Him we must believe
He is the only way
In God we trust, His Son we must receive
Accept Him today, tomorrow's too late

[Repeat Chorus]

Ooh, ooh, ooh, in God we trust

[Repeat]
