lyrics

i used to be seated on the throne of my life
today i decided to give up my pride
so i retraced some steps that i took long ago
sent my regards to them, it's over and done

oh Jesus, please lead me wherever i go
i'm weak and i'm sure i can't do this alone
why do i think about myself all the time
i'm stuck in this loop, i can not unwind
teach me what it's like to be one of a kind
you're one of a kind

there's a paradox deep in the roots of the heart
like a flower it blooms after it's torn apart
if i knew what it'd bring i'd try to embrace
situations i'm forced to depend on your grace

and if i should fall it'll be in your arms
if i should break it'll be for your cause
like the sun you're the ending to my darkest hour
crashed into my heart like a waterfall
oh, your voice and then that call
i could see it all

i put the crown off my head
it's now buried in sand
i can go on without it
there's always an end
to the reign of a mask
on the face of a man
i decided to burn it
and now i feel cleansed

by a force indescribable, nothing compares
to what the love did with me, crying again
like a kid on the shoulders of his strong bold dad
i rose up again to see it all
from a viewpoint, oh, so tall
i could see it all
