Track Name: Other Side
It's not that I'm not happy in my
Life as it is, cuz I am and I know it's
All…a part of it all
I know I'm beyond blessed in the
Good and the bad and the chaos and madness
And things could be worse

CHORUS 1:
(so then) Why does the grass look greener
On the other side? (I should know better.)
Why is it hard for me
To just be satisfied? (why?)
Cuz I know that when I get there
The only thing green will be my envy

I've been around the block a time or twelve
And I'd like to think that I've learned, I’ve learned from it all
And in all of the learning I sometimes neglect to retrospect
That God's ... never not provided

-CHORUS-

(the only thing green will be my jealousy, when I...)
I stick my head up over the fence it looks so lush and so intense
But when I step my foot upon the grass of this so perfect lawn
The weeds begin to choke my feet,
The roses here don't smell so sweet
I spin around, I hit the ground
And suddenly I look to find
The most wonderful yard in the world....is mine. Oh yes it's mine. It's always been mine.
Track Name: Go
Oh how I long to bring hope to the masses
But I am blind to the need right in front of me
Help me remember life grows from the ashes
Open my eyes to see clearly
Lord I am asking you, oh I am willing
Lord won't You please help me do what You're bidding
I need the courage, I know You can help me

Am I ready? I don't know
Am I ready? You seem to think so...so let's

CHORUS:
Go ----
Let's set out and change the world one need at a time let’s
Go ----
You know the reason and You know the rhyme
oh anything, everything, let it be good
Team with me Jesus to be what I could...(be)

Big things started out small
But the distractions kept me from hearing
The quiet whisper of Your call
Telling me You were the one I was needing
Always forgiving me when I was weak
Silently guiding through valleys and peaks
All the while shining Your light in me

Now I'm ready, and I know
Keep me steady, I still need to grow...but let’s

-CHORUS-

Though we come from different places
It is clear on all our faces, we could use help sometimes
So if we walk with Him and all His graces
Let Him guide us through the mazes, we will be more than fine
-
Though we come from different places
It is clear on all our faces, we could use help sometimes
So if we walk with Him and all His graces
Let His endless love embrace us, we will be more than fine

-CHORUS-
...team with us Jesus to be what we could....be
Track Name: My Heart Sings
I say I'm worthless, You call me worthy
When I feel helpless, You come and help me
Oh I don't deserve Your Grace, but You love me endlessly
You pour Your blessings down on me
My cup runneth over

CHORUS 1:
All Your provisions, You bring me what I need
There's not a shade tree in this world that didn't start with Your seed
The clothes I wear, the joys I share
Your love provides these things, and my heart sings

I look around me, I see Your glory
When people ask me, I tell Your story
How You love me at my worst, at my best and in-between
You are my shelter from the storm
And You always will be

CHORUS 2:
All Your provisions, You bring me what I need
There's not a sin I've held in shame that Your mercy hasn't freed
The steps I take, the moves I make
Your love provides these things, and my heart sings

BRIDGE:
Your graaaaaace, You gave love before I'd asked
Your looooooove, You brought mercy to my past
Your merrrrrrrcy, You sent Jesus to bring life
And Jesus has freed us in grace, whoa…

CHORUS 3:
All Your provisions, You bring me what I need
There's not a miracle performed that Your Hand did not lead
The friends I meet, the foods I eat
Your love provides these things, and my heart sings

CHORUS 4:
All Your provisions, You bring me what I need
There’s not a weakness in me You couldn’t strengthen indeed
The words I say, the prayers I pray
Your love provides these things, and my heart sings
Yeah, my heart sings, Oh my heart sings
Track Name: Save Me
I'm caught in the middle
Of the life I lead and the one I need
Caught in the middle
And the waves are crashing over me
There's so many questions
All the answers come in shades of grey
I'm tired of suggestions
I’m longing for a lighter way

And I'm low and I'm scared and I need You are You there
Can You hear me
Can You help me please

CHORUS
Can You help me break these chains of the burdens
Can You bring some clarity to all the uncertains
Can You lift me up cause I'm down and I feel like I'm drowning
I can't breathe
Will You save me?

I know what I should do
It seems so logical and so simplified
Know who I should be
But I turn the narrow path too wide
The urgency pulls me, yet I'm paralyzed by pride and fear
I'm called to go further, but it's easier to stay here

And I try to pretend that I'm in control
but my plans fail me, and Yours avail me…

-CHORUS-

I know that I, I’ve been hear before and I
I know that I’ve got what it takes
I can’t say that I’ll never be here again
That’s why I’m so thankful for grace

I'm caught in the middle
Of the life I lead and the one I need
This life is a riddle
And I’m grateful for Your mercy
