drowning

(2001)

I am really fond of this song. I donít normally write things quite so filled (word wise) but it all seemed to flow on this one. "Drowning" didnít really come out of a particular event or moment. It's just a play on words as to how it feels when we move out of God's will and into our own. For me, it feels at times a lot like drowning - like I can't get a breath and I can't seem to catch up or be the person of faith I want to be.

At the end, end of my rope no I, I can't cope
Lost sight of my first mission, lost sight of my conviction
Doesnít matter who would see me, 'cus it really wouldnít be me
In the mask that Iíve been wearing, in the altered life Iím living

At the end, end of my line no I, I canít find
The right way to go through, a clear picture of You
Waterís getting deeper, fears are getting steeper
Whatís left of me, the waves are covering

If this ocean is for real, may it sink this heart of steel

Drowning, drowning, all alone no Iím not no
On my own, God can you see me
Drowning, drowning, falling through the water line
Going down my first time

Could it be, could it be now, You're pulling me out
I was going under, now Iím up and over
God Iím finally free with You to be
Showered in blessing in You Iím resting

If this ocean is for real, may it sink this heart of steel

Drowning, drowning, all alone no Iím not no
On my own, God can you see me
Drowning, drowning, falling through the water line
Going down my second time

Underneath the gentle calm, my last breath floats upwards
Lord I knew that it was wrong for me to ever wander
I fell into the very part of me I tried to resist
But sometimes temptation offers a kiss

Drowning, drowning, all alone no Iím not no
On my own, God can you see me
Drowning, drowning, falling through the water line
Going down my last time
