When You Think You Can't Even Crawl

Here comes that question again

Trying to wipe the dirt from my skin

“How did I come back to this place?”

I’m so buried in my shame

And you know the saddest part

Is I know your name and you’ve shown me the way

But my legs have been broken

Trying to carry the weight of my sin

And my arms are frozen trying to cover up my face

I can’t even imagine how to walk

when I don’t have the strength to crawl

I keep saying it’s going to be different

Though here I am again looking up from the fall


Voiceless I am calling

I’m calling from behind closed eyes

My lips are trembling afraid to speak your name

These tears, my tears they continue to fall

Lord, I want to be different

I don't want to be buried by this world anymore.


I hear that question again

As I try to find the light in the sky

“Child, are you not mine?”

Like thunder, I begin to shake

And you know the saddest part

Is I thought I was lost and unworthy.

But I was never carrying my sin

You took that for me

The strength I thought I had misplaced

Was just fear’s way of controlling

When I can’t even think of how to walk

You are there to hold me

I’ll keep praying it’s going to be different

Lord, I want to be different


Voiceless I am calling

I’m calling from behind closed eyes

My lips are trembling with the power of your name

These tears, my tears they continue to fall

Lord, I want to be different

I don't want to be of this world anymore.


I’ll keep praying it’s going to be different

Lord, I want to be different in you
