Broken Ladders


You never asked me to be king
Build my tower up to the sky
So why do I try
You never asked me to be rich
Buy the things that gold can buy
So why do I try
All You ever wanted was my heart
My heart, my simple heart
To You that's all that really matters
Why do I feel I have to reach
Believe I have to rise
When You never said I had to climb
These broken ladders


You never asked me to be complete
By myself, find all I need
So why do I try?
Oh, You never asked me to stand alone
Face the struggles on my own
So why do I try?
When all You ever wanted was my heart
My heart, my simple heart
To You that's all that really matters
Why do I feel I have to reach
Believe I have to rise
When You never said I had to climb
These broken ladders
'Cause all they do is take
My eyes off of You
Make me forget the truth

- Broken Ladders, Selah

It still hurts




People leave, memories don't



Where our eyes are never closing
Hearts were never broken
And time's forever frozen still

A thin, thin thread



Man, it's been a long day
Stuck thinking 'bout it driving on the freeway
Wondering if I really tried everything I could
Not knowing if I should try a little harder

Oh, but I'm scared to death
That there may not be another one like this
And I confess that I'm only holding on by a thin thin thread

I'm kicking the curb cause you never heard
The words that you needed so bad
And I'm kicking the dirt cause I never gave you
The things that you needed to have
I'm so sad, saaad

Man, it's been a long night
Just sitting here, trying not to look back
Still looking at the road we never drove on
And wondering if the one I chose was the right one

Oh, but I'm scared to death
That there may not be another one like this
And I confess that I'm only holding on by a thin thin thread

Your Little One



There's no need to be afraid
Daddy's here and it's okay
My love will take the fear away
My little one

Give to Me the doubts and fears
Pour out your heart I'll catch the tears
I've always been the God who hears
My little one

You've held it in a long, long time
So let it out, it's okay to cry
My heart and arms are open wide
My little one

I'll hold you close and tight to Me
I'll help you through the unbelief
I said that I would never leave
My little one

Seasons



I can see the promise
I can see the future
You’re the God of seasons
I’m just in the winter

If all I know of harvest
Is that it’s worth my patience
Then if You’re not done working
God I’m not done waiting

You can see my promise
Even in the winter
Cause You’re the God of greatness
Even in a manger

For all I know of seasons
Is that You take Your time
You could have saved us in a second
Instead You sent a child

And when I finally see my tree
Still I believe there’s a season to come
