I Couldn’t Cross That Line

I couldn’t cross that line

For better or for worse

Lost and feeling alone

I battled

Fell and failed

I knew I couldn’t make the change

For sin was the nature made within me

The nature of the man

Yet you came and took it from me

Yet you know me

You know my name

I’m to blame

But you make me blameless

You saw I couldn’t make the change

I couldn’t cross that line even had I wanted

But you did it all for me

Without hesitation

Without dismay

You gave your life upon that cross upon that tree

That was my most important day

The day you took it all away

Throwing the best of me away

I lived in wrongs and sin

Too far gone

To ashamed to show my face and who I really am

You didn’t Wait to see that answer for you already knew me

You already knew my shadows that engulfed me

You knew my name and reached out to me before I could turn from you

There’s a sinner here before me I can not hide

I’m just a man

Please don’t kill me or take my life

Oh Lord be gentle

I’m just a man

A man like you once in flesh for when you gave your life to die and save

O Sweet Lord

Carry me through

I’m not afraid of you

I’m to blame

But you make me blameless

You saw I couldn’t make the change

I couldn’t cross that line even had I wanted

You broke me first

You took it all from me

I can not hide from out of your very own sight

You made me shine when I was hidden in no light

I used to fear

But now I hold faith over fear above all I can see

I can’t breathe but I’m living

I’m in too deep

I have debt I can not pay

You had a debt you did not owe

Yet you paid all

I’m in too deep

My walls they are enclosed

There’s no way out

But you

You make way where there is no way

You broke me first

In love that moved first

Just wanted some one else to take the blame

Running away to hide

You took it all from me even by your own life

I understand that I will never be who I am

I’m just breaking inside

I think a billion things but you’re number one

You were the shadow that covered me but you took it all

Where are you now

A man like you once in flesh for when you gave your life to die and save

O Sweet Lord

Carry me through

I’m fading

So lost in reality

Eternal silence

You shout my name out loud

For all to hear

The monsters move within me

So lost I’m fading

You cover me

You move within me

I’m to blame

But you make me blameless

You saw I couldn’t make the change

I couldn’t cross that line even had I wanted

You broke me first

You took it all from me

I can not hide from out of your very own sight

You see the light more than pain

Silence controls

Yet silence doesn’t know me like you do

Side by side I stay by you

You see me in all of my shadows

All the masks I hide behind

You see me in pure colors

I cross my heart and hope to die

For in you I know my life is saved

I’m always with you now

I won’t leave till my life is over

You’re number one

One of a kind
