Run the Race
Written by Bryan Fowler and Holly Starr

VERSE 1
You’ve been knocked down
but you’re not quite out
You’re on the ropes
looking at the crowd

They cheer you on
Can you hear the sound
It’s time to rise up and
take back the crown

PRE CHORUS
Don’t give up the prize is up ahead
Don’t loose hope this is not the end
You gotta remember

CHORUS
Deep in your soul
there is a fire
and it’s burning
through the rain

Quiet the fear
Focus your eyes
Don’t you know
that you were made
to run the race

VERSE 2
Lion heart
Let ‘em hear you roar
Show this world
What you’re fighting for

Courage comes
in the darkest storms
God gives you power
and strength to endure

 

Bruises

VERSE
When you’re feeling like a lost cause
And your voice cannot be heard
When your heart takes a beating
From the fist of heartless words
Don’t you give up on the world now
Cause there will be brighter days

PRE
You’re hiding all the bruises on your heart
But bruises aren’t what make you who you are

CHORUS
You’re a treasure in a broken world
Who you are
Who you are
You shine brighter than a billion stars
Who you are
Who you are
In a world where the truth is confusin’
You are more than your scars and your bruises

 

VERSE 2
In the middle of a hurricane
When you’re feeling black and blue
I can see why you would want to
Run away when life is cruel
Don’t you give up on the world now
There’s a life ahead of you

VERSE
I couldn’t imagine
Where I’d end up without you
I look at you and think
Am I in a dream?
I couldn’t forget
The crazy moment when I knew
That no one in the world
Could love me like you do

PRE CHORUS
I knew right then
When you held my umbrella in the rain, yeah
You won my heart that day
I never looked at you the same

CHORUS
So you
No matter the weather
We’re in it together, baby
Oh, You
You know you’re the best thing
That ever could happen to me

So don’t stop holding me so close
I need you to know I
won’t stop lovin’ you
Just lovin’ you
Lovin’ you

So you
You know you’re the best thing
That ever could happen, baby

 

VERSE 2
I wouldn’t believe it
If you told me I’d be yours
You changed my heart somehow
And look at us right now
I wouldn’t go back
I wouldn’t change the hardest times
You were always by my side
And forever you’ll be mine, yeah

PRE 2
I knew right then
When You held my umbrella in the rain, yeah
You won my heart that day
I never looked at you the same, yeah

VERSE
Take a second, take a breath
Take a break from all the pressure
You got problems, we all do
But that’s just part of the adventure

PRE CHORUS
What if mistakes aren’t such a bad thing
What if they make you who you are
What is a story with no struggle
You can’t see the stars without the dark

CHORUS
Maybe we could never be
Perfect people
But maybe that’s okay
Maybe we could never be
Oh-so-flawless
in every single way

But maybe that’s what makes us human
That’s what makes us feel
And maybe that’s what makes us humans
Know that Grace is real

VERSE 2
You been tryin’, tryin’ so hard
But you don’t gotta be the hero
You got issues, we all do
Don’t be afraid to let go

PRE
What if mistakes aren’t such a bad thing
What if they make you who you are
What is a story with no struggle
You can’t see the stars without the dark

BRIDGE
People telling us to
Dress like this, and talk like this, so perfect like this
But nobody can do it
You be you and I’ll be me
We’ll sing our harmonies together like a duet
Sometimes we need room to be human
We’re not angels after all
It’s time we see right through the illusion
We’re just human after all
INTERLUDE
Maybe we could never be perfect
Maybe we could never be flawless

ENDING
What if all our tears and our fears and our flaws are beautiful things
Cause everything that makes us human brings us to our knees

 

You and I

You and I
Written by David Morgan Thulin and Holly Starr
To Lean On Music (BMI) / Holly Starr Publishing (SESAC)

VERSE 1
You and I, we were young
We could fly to the moon and back
Not a thing that could make us sad, no

You and I, holding hands
With the world at our fingertips
Not a problem we couldn’t fix, no

PRE CHORUS
We said we’d never grow apart so hear me when I say

Chorus
Though life may get crazy
I know you’ll do good
Cause your courage has carried
You through every storm
No matter what happens
Whatever you do
I will love you
and I’ll always be here for you

VERSE 2
You and I, all grown up
separated by time and space
never thought it would be this way, no

BRIDGE
I pray you won’t feel alone
but live by the love you know
We share the same blood and bone
No, you are not alone

VERSE 3
You and I, here we are
in a world that’s full of change
I know you’ll take the narrow way

 

Say Yes

SAY YES
Written by David Morgan Thulin and Holly Starr
To Lean On Music (BMI) / Holly Starr Publishing (SESAC)

 

VERSE 1
You’ve been asking me to trust you blindly, blindly
I’m afraid you haven’t seen this side of me, side of me
I like the walls I’ve built they’re my security, security
Won’t you come break them down

CHORUS
I keep my heart under lock and key
But you keep running after me
What will it take for me to see that I want you

That I want you
I want you
That I want you
I want you

All I gotta do is say yes

VERSE 2
I’ve been asking you to speak up louder, louder
But I know the way you like to whisper, whisper
The walls I’ve built are crumbling and I’m breaking, breaking
I’m listening for you now

BRIDGE
All I gotta do is say yes

VERSE 1
You were only sixteen, waving goodbye
You sailed across the whole world
Leaving your world behind

PRE-CHORUS 1
No one can escape it
We’re sailing through time
But you were such a brave one
Waving goodbye

CHORUS
Days they turn into years
And we come and go
Here then gone
So cry all your tears
When you gotta let go
Still we keep on
Sailing, sailing, sailing on
Keep on
Sailing, sailing, sailing on

VERSE 2
You fell in love at eighteen with a kindhearted man
Even years and years together
Weren’t enough for all you planned

PRE-CHORUS 2
No one can escape it
We’re sailing through life
But you were such a strong one
Waving goodbye

BRIDGE
Every moment flashing by
is a gift that won’t come twice
Regrets are no good thing
So open up your eyes
While you are alive
Everybody says goodbye

VERSE 3
We’ve come now to the ending
It’s hard to let you go
You showed me how to be strong
Even if I fight alone

No one can escape it
We’re sailing through life
Now I have to be the brave one
Waving goodbye

ENDING
You’ll keep
Sailing, sailing, sailing on
You’ll keep
sailing, sailing, sailing on

 

 

 

 

 

 

Everything I Need

Through Me

They say go chase your dreams
the world is all yours
You never know what’s in store
They say be who you wanna be
follow your heart
but I’d rather be following Yours

No matter where I go
No matter where You take me
I want You to be the one they see, yeah
cause there’ll be no doubt about it
No way that I could hide it
when You shine Your light through me

My life is Yours
I give it to You
It never really was mine
When I stand in the middle
of a broken down world
I just wanna let You shine

Turn down the noise
in all that I do
Let it be about You Jesus

Never Going Back

I was a runaway
living a masquerade
but deep down I knew that I was broken

You found me in the dark
You held me in Your arms
You changed my future in a moment now I’m

Never going back
to the way I was
whatever’s in the past
is covered in Love
is covered in Love

No matter what comes
my mind’s made up
forever I’m Yours
because of Your love
because of Your love

Oh what a victory
My savior won for me
Now I have peace that won’t be shaken

Oh what a miracle
My heart forever full
Oh God Your Spirit has awakened me I’m

My God You are so good to me
You saved my life, You set me free
Hallelujah, I have been redeemed

Everything I Need

I’ve been searching all my life
for something that satisfies
I’ve been longing all this time
For what You alone supply

So I run to You
God I run to You

Jesus, You are my Provider
You know my heart’s desire
You’re everything I need
Jesus, You are all I long for
My hunger and my thirst Lord
You’re everything I need

All my treasures all my dreams
I lay them at Your feet
cause I have tasted, I have seen
That You are enough for me

Everything I need is in You
Everything I need is in You
Everything I need is in You
Jesus, Jesus

Sunshine

You are a fire burning away the darkest night
Out of the ashes You create a brilliant life

Jesus You have made me new
I come alive in You

In the valley You are the sunshine
Making shadows disappear
In the desert You are a fountain overflowing
So I won’t be afraid when darkness comes my way
In the valley You are the sunshine (You are the sunshine)

You are a well brimming with water for my soul
Lord You are faithful to make Your garden grow

Jesus You are all I need
No matter where I go You’re with me

Jesus I will lift You high
I’ll live my life to glorify Your Name
You alone be magnified
You’re the Son of God who has saved me from the grave
You’ve saved me from the grave

Forever Faithful

I see the battle raging
waging war against my soul
My heart and flesh are weary Jesus
So here’s my prayer, oh Lord

I wanna be faithful no matter what
I wanna be stronger not giving up
and even in the fire let me be found
forever faithful

When darkness comes against me I won’t run
I will stand upon the rock of Your great love
Though thousands fall around me I will hold my head up high
cause the promise of Your presence is enough, is enough

Create in me a brand new heart
God give me faith to overcome
Fill me with strength when I have none

My Father's Love

I can’t hear another love song
I am sick of how they make me feel
I want more than just illusions
cause this heart was made for something real

I won’t give my heart away
Only You can keep it safe

I am trusting in my Father’s love
His promises have always been enough
I’m never alone
I’m safe in the arms of my Father’s love

I’ve been learning how to let go
learning how to follow where You lead
I am falling into Your arms
God I know that You are all I need

I am Your bride, You are my love
You are the one that I’ve been waiting for
like the tide is sure to come
You are forever faithful
No one is like You God

I am trusting in my Father’s love
His promises have always been enough
I’m never alone
I’m already known
I’m never alone
I’m safe in the arms of my Father’s love

I am in Your hands
oh God my God

God Is

When all you see is here and now
When everything is crumbling, falling to the ground
This is just a moment, this is not forever
I know it seems impossible when all your hope is gone

But God is, God is,
Greater than the fear you’re facing
Greater than the storm that’s raging
God is, God is,
With you when you cry, so cry out His name
Cause God is greater than the pain

He knows the trials His children face
He knows the tears that fall that we all have to taste
But don’t you dare let go now, don’t let the candle blow out
His love is strong, so just hold on cause He is with you through it all

He is mighty, more than able,
to rescue and restore the ones He loves
He’s a refuge and a savior, a savior
