It’s a ‘Let it Go’ kind of day

Changed

I came up out of the water, raised my hands up to the Father
Gave it all to him that day, felt a new wind kiss my face
Walked away, Eyes wide open could finally see where I was going – It didn’t matter where I’d been – I’m not the same man I was then

I got off track, I made mistakes. Back slid my way into that place where souls get lost – Lines get crossed and the pain won’t go away – I hit my knees, now here I stand – there I was, now here I am changed

I got a lot of “Hey, I’m sorry”s – the things I’ve done that was not me – I wish that I could take it all back I just want to tell em’ that
I got off track, I made mistakes. Back slid my way into that place where souls get lost – Lines get crossed and the pain won’t go away – I hit my knees, now here I stand – there I was, now here I am changed

I’m changed for the better, more smiles, less bitter I’m even starting to forgive myself – I hit my knees, here I stand – there I was, now here I am
Here I am changed. Yes I am changed for the better – Thank God I’m changed.

“Break Your Heart”

People downcast, is despair, see the disillusion everywhere
Hoping their bad luck will change gets a little harder every day
People struggle, people fight for the simple pleasures in their lives
But trouble comes from everywhere; It’s a little more than you can bear

I know that it will hurt, I know that it will break your heart
The way things are and the way they’ve been and the way they’ve always been

People shallow, self-absorbed, see the push and shove for their rewards
I, me, my is on their minds you can read about it in their eyes
People ruthless, people cruel, see the damage that some people do
Full of hatred, full of pride, it’s enough to make you lose your mind

I know that it will hurt, I know that it will break your heart
The way things are, And the way they’ve been
I know that it will hurt, I know that it will break your heart
The way things are and the way they’ve been

Don’t spread the discontent, don’t spread the lies
Don’t make the same mistakes with your own life
Don’t disrespect yourself, don’t lose your pride
And don’t think that everybody’s gonna choose your side

Ghost

Do you remember when the walls fell
Do you remember the sound that the door made when you closed it on me
Do you know that I went down to the ground
Landed on both my broken-hearted knees
I didn’t even cry, ’cause pieces of me had already died

I’m a ghost haunting these halls
Climbing up walls that I never knew were there
And I’m lost broken down the middle of my heart, heart
I’m broken down the middle of my heart, heart, heart
You know you make me a ghost
You make me a ghost

I’m an invisible disaster
I keep trying to walk but my feet don’t find the solid ground
It’s like living in a bad dream
I keep trying to scream but my tongue has finally lost its sound
I’ve got to say goodbye to the pieces of me that have already died

I’m a ghost haunting these halls
Climbing these walls that I never knew were there
And I’m lost broken down the middle of my heart, heart
I’m broken down the middle of my heart, heart, heart

I don’t cry. I don’t try anymore.
I’m a ghost, I’m a ghost and I’m lost
Broken down the middle of my heart, heart
I’m broken down the middle

I’m a ghost haunting these halls
Climbing up walls that I never knew were there
And I’m lost broken down the middle of my heart, heart
I’m broken down the middle of my heart, heart, heart

The Broken Ones

This song is very inspirational to me and often fills me with positive thoughts and motivation. It has gotten me through some very painful times. Sometimes, when I am driving in my car, I play it loudly, and sing to it, imagining all the people who have helped keep me alive, keep me going, keep me from not giving up.

And so it goes, the soldier knows the battle with the heart isn’t easily won

But it can be won.

 

My battle has been an ongoing war for the past four years. I’ve been struck down, many times, covered in the dirt and thirsty for pure water. Reaching out my hand, begging to be saved, I breathe and one step at a time, I lift myself up and push onward.

The past may be the past, but living in a constant memory is bringing me down. Fear of faith, fear of doubt, unable to manage present, unable to see the future. An unknown road, but no dead end sign keeps me moving forward.

This battle may be lost, but there’s still hope for victory in the war. Sense of failure, sense of heartache, but clinging tight to the breath of tomorrow. This dirt road is full of tragedy, but it’s also full of love and a fellow heartbeat pulls me along.

Scratches and wounds, open and wide keep me in a bad dream I often wish to forget. Fear of self, fear of memory, unable to forget, but unable to see. Those chains wrapped around a victim, but they are loose, fighting to keep going.

Forgiving eyes, comfort in words, I struggle to trust, and drown in uncertainty. Sense of imprisonment, but subtle sense of compassion. I look to my left, I look to my right, walking side by side, I trust and see a shadow of me, taking the shaken hand, I pull along.

That battle was fought, and mine bombs are still exploding. Some strike, some miss, as I walk down a street, walk past a house. I look to my right, a sense of silence, a sense of shame. With these soldiers, my fist rounds tense, pounds the door, breaks it down. A frozen girl, sad girl, fighting to be heard.

These arms sneak in, scoop her up. Sense of jailbreak, sense of pain. I carry her out, through the war zone, her eyes look up. Fear of belief, fear of alone. With her in my arms, I carry her along.

This unfinished battle, this ongoing war. Having been struck down, I am picked up, dirt washed off, hand grabbed, not letting go, saying “you will be saved”, I breathe as I am carried by each step forward, I carry on, not alone. We keep going.

Fire away, fire away

You shout it out, but I can’t hear a word you say.
I’m talking loud not saying much;
I’m criticized but all your bullets ricochet
You shoot me down, but I get up

I’m bulletproof, nothing to lose
Fire away, fire away, Ricochet, you take your aim
Fire away, fire away, You shoot me down but I won’t fall
I am titanium, you shoot me down but I won’t fall
I am titanium

Cut me down, but it’s you who have further to fall
Ghost town and haunted love
Raise your voice, sticks and stones may break my bones
I’m talking loud not saying much

Stone-hard, machine gun, firing at the ones who run
Stone-hard, those bulletproof glass
You shoot me down but I won’t fall, I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won’t fall, I am titanium
