I want something real, not fancy words
I’m done with my false hope.
I want something whole, something pure
I’m tired of enslaving rules.
‘coz deep inside I’m broken, deep inside I’m weak.
The twist and turns of this life made me feel so down, oh down.
Show me your love Oh Jesus, teach me how to live for you.
Give me a sense of freedom, ‘coz nobody else will do.
I’ll take that zig zag, zig zag road if you’ll stay close with me.
This is the day, this is the hour to sing, life can begin again.
Having this clear night without stars is just like an illusion.
I want something fresh, simply new, somehow there’s something more than this.
‘coz deep inside I’m worn out, deep inside I’m dry.
I need your traveling grace now, Oh give me one more chance, just once more.
