Ain’t no doubt in my mind
I should be dead and gone
I didn’t want it unless
I knew it was wrong
Spent my life playin the role,
tried to play so strong
Til there was…
nothing left but the fear,
and a dying heart

Then Your love
came breakin’ through…


Your love lifted me
from all the pain
And You set your seal
on my broken heart to stay
I was lost
Til’ You called my name
And You opened my eyes
to the lights…
the lights of home.

It’s hard to see what you’re fightin’
stumbling through the dark
That’s why my…
best laid plans never seemed
to get very far
Standin’ in the mirror
countin’ time, countin’ scars
Tryin’ to figure out
just how I got so hard

Then Your love
came breakin’ through

Your love lifted me
from all the pain
And You set my feet
on Your solid rock of grace
I was lost
when You called my name

And You opened my eyes
To the lights…
The lights of home.

It’s getting harder to watch
what’s been goin on
You look around and you know
it won’t be too long
Til’ He cuts away
the lost from the found
Do you need a hand
to find your way home?

Just let His love
break through to you…

Let His love set you free,
melt your fears away
into the Crystal sea
we’ll walk by with Him one day
He feels the pain in your cries
hopin’ you will say
Please open my eyes
to the lights…
the lights of home

He knows the pain in your heart
He’s hopin’ you will say
Lord, please open my eyes…
please open my eyes
to the lights of home
