Well I have always been this way Now I'll sell tickets to my fight with Yesterday Yeah, and life will never be the same But hey, that's ok! (That would just be boring anyway)

With the best of intentions I glue my rump to a chair And try hard to spend the next few minutes in prayer But something smells funny A fly keeps buzzing my head When I look through my eyelids the world is red I entertain tangents and I play with my hair I follow the Phantom into his lair I think about castles and the knights who lived there And I follow the Phantom into his lair I hear your small whisper Or is it just the radio? I want to think of you but there my mind goes Starting to drift now Did I hear myself snore? Would it help to slam my hand in the door? I entertain tangents and I play with my hair I follow the Phantom into his lair I think about castles and the knights who lived there And I follow the Phantom into his lair And I say to myself don't you dare! Follow that Phantom into his lair But then there's that cute girl and my mind's it stares And I follow the Phantom into his lair

I used to be so certain Of where my life was going But now it seems that I've been flirting with disaster Now I can see all my plans They're dissolving in the wind And now it seems it's time to find another road And Your love Is the only thing that keeps me sane Yes, Your love Is the only thing that keeps me sane In the rough times In the rough times In the rough times In the rough times Of my uncertainty Yes, of my uncertainty

You're such a scarce commodity And I am poor it seems Yeah, I'm so jealous of your time But, Patience, he is king So I can wait my turn 'Cause I'm holding out to find A day with no one else in sight When you're completely mine So I'll just wait here for a while In the shadows of Just Friends Yeah, I'll just wait for one more day In these shadows called Just Friends Well I doubt it's even crossed your mind That we could be much more And I bet you think this song is for Just some Other Girl But I'm just too afraid To tell you how I feel And to say all of the things that I Wish that I could say So I'll just wait here for a while In the shadows of Just Friends Yeah, I'll just wait for one more day In these shadows called Just Friends But maybe one day I'll come out of my shell And drop my cowardice by the wayside 'Cause I know you're worth the risk Even if you don't feel the same But for now I'll just wait here for a while In the shadows of Just Friends Yeah, I'll just wait for one more day In these shadows called Just Friends So, yeah, I'll just wait for one more day In the shadows of Just Friends But maybe one day I'll come out and say I wanna be more than Just Friends with you

As I've struggled through these years I've had my share of pain and share of tears But one thing I've come to find Is that I am Yours and You are mine And no flood of sorrow Can ever change that fact For Your abundant mercy Can always bring me back To Your face To Your face And I've traveled on the high roads Under cloudless skies with easy load And still one thing I've come to find Is that I am Yours and You are mine And no flood of blessing Will ever cloud my mind For all these earthly treasures Will never turn my eyes From Your face From Your face

Well I revealed who I am an hour too late And now I'm regretting that mistake 'Cause I'm still smarting from the shards of broken mask I've got embedded deep within my face And you know it really hurt to fall From atop my useless pedestal So now my heart is screaming, You Fool! Didn't you know... The truth is Freedom! The truth is Freedom! The truth is Freedom! The truth is Freedom! Well everyone knows the truth has a way Of always coming out to make you pay So why not save yourself an awful lot of pain And let it out before it's too late 'Cause secrets they bring only two things And those are fear and distrust They are the shackles that keep us bound So listen close... 'Cause truth is Freedom! 'Cause truth is Freedom! 'Cause truth is Freedom! The truth is Freedom! So this time I'll be honest from the start And then I'll have nothing to hide 'Cause I'm a sinner and I'm ashamed But so is she So what's the point of hiding if all it brings is fear? And love's not really worth it if it can't withstand a couple tears So what's the point of hiding if all it brings is fear? And love's not really worth it if it can't withstand a couple tears So truth is Freedom! So truth is Freedom! So truth is Freedom! So truth is Freedom! So truth is Freedom! So truth is Freedom!

When I was the age of thirteen I was so sure of exactly two things That I was just too young And that one day I would grow up I just thought it was some magical thing That one day I'd wake up with perfect faith Well I'm 21 now -- It's the Miracle Age 'Cause I'm all grown up now or so they say And though I've grown so much of late I know I'm still so young in so many ways Well I knew that I didn't know much But now I think that I knew even less than I thought 'Cause you know I was just a kid With some crazy dreams in my head But now I know growth comes through pain Yet I'm still seeking You all the same Well I'm 21 now -- It's the Miracle Age 'Cause I'm all grown up now or so they say And though I've grown so much of late I know I'm still so young in so many ways Yeah I'm 21 now -- It's the Miracle Age 'Cause I'm all grown up now or so they say And though I've grown so much of late I know I'm still so young in so many ways And I know that I'm not really wise But I'm beginning to realize That growing up's never quite done But I can see that that's half the fun

We met not four years ago But it feels like a lifetime And your faces are indelibly seared Into my mind's eye But we're all on different roads And now the intersection's gone And it's time to move on But I don't want to 'Cause it's so hard to say goodbye Goodbye Goodbye Goodbye Goodbye

At the end of time Before the throne of God I hope to be defined Good and Faithful Servant Then my faith is deemed Solid as a rock But sometimes it seems That I'm not that determined Perfect me into Your image Perfect me into Your image Perfect me into Your image, Lord Perfect me Perfect me, Lord So at the end of time I'll know one thing for sure I will come to find That I am Yours
