Now, I realize …

“Now, I realize I am nothing but bone made from dust
Someone learning to love like You do
Eternally, always true.
I want to be nothing more than a man wholly Yours
A beloved son, one who You hold close to Your heart
Eternally, never apart”
-from “Made From Dust” by Ivoryline.

Song “Return” by artist NYVES, qwith lyrics.

Song: Return.
Artist: NYVES.

Lyrics:
“Where do you go?
I’ve seen you wander off alone
Into the cold
The darkness overtakes you whole
I wanna know
Are you still the one who’s in control?
Out on your own
When you feel it caving in, come home

Whatever it is
No matter the cause
Return to me
Whatever it is
No matter the cause
Return

Are you the same?
I can see your permanence decay
Don’t be afraid
Every trial is a chance to change

Whatever it is
No matter the cause
Return to me
Whatever it is
No matter the cause
Return

Whatever it is
No matter the cause
Return to me
Whatever it is
No matter the cause
Return

Whatever it is
No matter the cause
Return to me
Whatever it is
No matter the cause
Return”

Song “Dreams For Sale” by artist Cool Hand Luke (song and lyrics)

Song: Dreams For Sale.
Artist: Cool Hand Luke.

LYRICS:
“Out here it’s live and learn,
so you can rush and earn,
a piece of this pie.
It’s work today and rest tomorrow,
but it’s never tomorrow.
until we die.
We strive to find contentment,
and so often we miss it,
when it’s knocking at the door.
We’re too busy to open up,
busy with other stuff,
so we go on as before.

Like a pencil you hold dear,
but you lose behind your ear.
You won’t find it ’cause it’s already here.
You can’t see it with those
eyes so tightly closed.
It’s right here in front of your nose.

What are we fighting for?
Are the spoils of war,
all they’re meant to be?
We strive for 401k,
but we could make a trade,
for eternity.
Put down those papers,
put down that phone.
Put down those fake diamond and imposter cologne.
Yes, there’s contentment.
No, it’s not free.
You have to lay down your anxiety.

If you were trying to end change,
you’re wishing for the grave.
This is the flux of things,
in the rain you will get wet.
And there is trouble yet,
this is how we pay our debt.
Running past the things you want,
it was always here.
You just closed your eyes and couldn’t see it.
Open your eyes.
You’ll see it’s still here.
But you can’t chase this world and find contentment.

It has a face, it has a name.
Jesus Christ.
What if I told you,
you could live forever,
if you’d lay it all down?
What if I told you,
you could live forever?
Just lay it down.”

Song “Free” by artist Switchfoot (song and lyrics)

Song: Free.
Artist: Switchfoot.

LYRICS:
“I’ve got my back against the wall
I can still hear the blue sky call
The chains that hold me back inside
All the prisons of my mind
Yeah

Free
Come set me free
Down on my knees
I still believe You can save me from me
Come set me free
I still believe
That inside this shell there’s a prison cell

I try to live the light of day
Why do I do what I hate?
When I try to reach above
I only hurt the ones I love
Yeah

Free
Come set me free
Down on my knees
I still believe You can save me from me
Come set me free
I still believe
That inside this shell there’s a prison cell

There’s a hole in the neighborhood
Where the shadows fall
There’s a hole in my heart
But my hope is not in me at all
I had a dream that my chains were broken, broken
Broken open

Free
Come set me free
Down on my knees
I still believe You could save me from me
Come set me free
I still believe that inside this shell there’s a prison cell
Inside this shell there’s a prison cell
Inside this shell there’s a prison cell”
