Track Name: Battle Scars
BATTLE SCARS

This truth revealed, which makes my wounds to never heal.
But, reaching for the stars helps me find the strength within-
The strength to carry on, with which this journey
I must begin.

Fiery darts bein’ thrown again
Step off the battle field once more
Wounded more than twice this time
And all I can do when I’m here is say
That I love You.
I love You.

So, here I am again
Bearing my soul to You.
-Tryin’ to find a way to stand.
And, all I can say is I love You.

You’re my strength and song in times of war.
Even now I know You’re fighting for me.
Replace the wounds with scars so I can see…
Where Your hand has touched me.
I am healed!

So, here I am again
Bearing my soul to You.
-Tryin’ to find a way to stand.
And, all I can say is I love You. (2x)
Track Name: Let Down My Guard
Sometimes I just want to forget
Fast forward to the future-
Not looking behind to the past
Pages of regret.

We’ve got a long road ahead
And you’re with me every step

You said things would be much easier
If I wouldn’t try so hard
You said things would be much better
If I would let down my guard

Here we are together
We’re going through the wilderness
But we see the other side
Because we both put up such a fight

We’ve got a long road ahead
You’ve been with me every step

CHORUS:

2nd CHORUS:
I know if I let down my guard
You would rescue me
And I will trust you with everything
I will let down my guard
Track Name: Uncharted
I used to say I don’t want to be trapped in the negative
Only see the down side of things.
I used to think it was impossible to breathe life
Into these broken wings.

Sometimes I don’t want to remember:
I Just want to forget
That faded memory, a past history.
You don’t know where to go
Til you know where you’ve been.
And, there is a road untraveled
I’m meant to begin.

I don’t wanna be a burden
Like in the past.
I want to give to my other half.
…don’t wanna be a burden like in the past
I want to give to my other half.

I know that it was rough in the beginning
But, you were key in the process of my healing.
I used to drink from a cup half empty;
Now I’m sippin’ from a cup half full.

You don’t know where to go
Til you know where you’ve been.
And, we’ve set a new course
I can’t wait to begin.

And now I’m not a burden-
Like in the past.
I’m giving to my other half
Now I’m not a burden
Like in the past
I’ll give you my all and we’ll make it last.

I used to be afraid that I would stay stuck in a memory,
Trapped in history.
But, now I know that I’m free to dream with you
Next to me.
You be the pilot: I’ll bring the dreams.
Cuz now I know that I’m free to dream with you next to me.
Track Name: Pushing Forward
Hey, hey, oh
oh
Hey, hey, oh

Chorus:
And I’m pushing forward with all I have
Not looking behind to the place of my past.
And, I know that it won’t be too long before
The new replaces the old.

Verse 1:
But, I don’t know what I would do…
If something separated me from you.
And I think of all the times that I’ve remembered you.
You came through.
You came through.

Bridge:
And, I’m praying and hoping and believing for you
That He will make all things new.
The light floods the darkness and it bleeds hope
Into the spark of this heart the whole way through.

Chorus:
And I’m pushing forward with all that I have
Not looking behind to the place of my past.
And, I know that it won’t be too long before
The new replaces the old.

Verse 2:
You’re there by my side,
Helping me to strive.
Because we’re not just gonna live.
We are going to thrive.
So, I shed this old skin
For clothes of white
B/c we’re not just gonna live-
We are going to thrive.

And, I’m praying and hoping and believing for you
That He will make all things new.
The light floods the darkness and it bleeds hope
Into the spark of this heart the whole way through.
CHORUS

HE WILL RESTORE
