IF I DROWn

COMING SOON

 

(VERSE 1)
I WAS YOUNG WHEN YOU CAME FOR ME, YOU CAME FOR ME, 
PLUCKED ME UP OUTTA THAT HELL I WAS RUNNING TOWARDS IT,
IN THAT ONE STORY HOUSE IN SILVERDALE, 
I FELT THE SPIRIT FALL SO I PRAYED THE SINNER’S PRAYER, MY DAD WAS THERE

HE TOLD ME AARON YOU GON' BE A PREACHER,
LIKE THE MOUTHPIECE FOR MOSES YOU CAN LEARN TO SPEAK IT,
I WAS SIX, OR MAYBE SEVEN, OR MAYBE EIGHT,
THESE MEMORIES THEY BLUR TOGETHER AND START TO FADE, 

ONE THING I WON’T FORGET IS HOW YOU PUT ME IN THIS SHIP,
LIKE A SON OF NOAH, NO OTHER REASON THAT I BE IN,
SO WE SET SAIL FOR THE SHORES OF GRACE,
TO A NEW EARTH AS THIS OLD ONE PASS AWAY, I CAN HEAR THE RAIN,

THERE’S A STORM ALL AROUND ME AND I'M AFRAID OF DROWNING,
I’M AFRAID OF BEING THROWN UP OVERBOARD,
SOMETIMES I WONDER IF YOU REALLY WITH ME GOD,
I GOT A LOTTA QUESTIONS THAT I WANNA ASK YOU LORD, LIKE,

WILL MY SHIP MAKE IT THERE OR WILL I SINK?
WILL I RUN OUT OF RATIONS OR CRASH INTO THIS REEF
I BEEN ASKING YOU TO LEAD ME HOME, SO LEAD ME HOME
I JUST WANT SEE YOUR FACE IN GLORY BEYOND

THIS IS LIKE MY OWN VOYAGE OF THE DAWN TREADER
THESE DARK NIGHTS ONLY SERVE TO MAKE THE DAWN BETTER, SEA
SO PUT BALLAST IN MY BOAT, COME AND KEEP YOUR SON AFLOAT
AS I SAIL INTO ETERNITY, COAST

(CHORUS)
WHEN WE'VE BEEN THERE TEN THOUSAND YEARS,
BRIGHT SHINING AS THE SUN,
WE'VE NO LESS DAYS TO SING GOD'S PRAISE,
THEN WE WE FIRST BEGUN

(VERSE 2)
WHEN WE BEEN THERE TEN THOUSAND YEARS,
AINT NO MORE TEARS OR SADNESS, NO BROKENNESS IN THE NEW EARTH
LIVING IT NOW, WAITING TO CONSUMMATE IT BUT WE HAVE YOUR VOW,
JUST TRYING TO MAKE IT THERE FOR WHAT IT’S WORTH,

WORTH A MILLI, IT’S WORTH A WHOLE LOT MORE IF YOU FEEL ME,
I GOT A NEW BODY WAITING, I WANT TO BE FURTHER CLOTHED,
AND NO LONGER FOUND NAKED,

SO I'M LOOKING TO THE RESURRECTION OF THE WHOLE WORLD,
A CITY WHERE THE SINGINGS ALL MY BROTHERS WOULD PREFER,
SO TELL ME THAT YOU SEA LAND, 
CAUSE ALL I’VE SEEN IS SEA ENDLESS OCEANS OF LEVIATHANS,

SPURGEON SAID THAT HE LEARNED TO KISS THE WAVES,
THAT THREW HIM AGAINST THE ROCK OF AGES, 
I GUESS I'M FINDING OUT THE SAME,
THE HOPE OF GLORY ON THE OTHER SIDE OF PAIN

(BRIDGE)
I JUST WANT TO MAKE IT TO HEAVENS SHORES,
SO GOD BE MY LIGHTHOUSE CORRECTING MY COURSE,
YOU SEND THE WINDS FROM YOUR HEAVENLY HOST,
TO GET ME TO THE END BY YOUR HOLY GHOST,

SO EVERLASTING ARMS WILL CARRY ME,
AND THE MOST EVIL CAN DO IS BURY ME,
SO I COULD DIE AT SEA AND OPEN MY EYES
TO SEE YOU SAYING YOU "DINE WITH ME" LETS FEAST!
