Loving things like you has wrecked my life, made me cry
Loving things like you has made me lose my mind
And I can't figure out why I've been hanging on
To all these things I've tried to leave behind me for so long
And I think it's time to find a better way to live my life
Than loving all those things that keep me wrapped so tight

'Cause everyone wants everyone else's everything
And sometimes the more we have the less we really gain
And I'm tired of loving all that money has to buy
Get out of my heart, I don't mind my leaving you behind
Get out of my heart, I don't mind my leaving you behind

Loving things like you has left me bruised black and blue
Loving things like you has made me so confused
And I can't figure out what I've been waiting on
God, I can't be living life for things I know are wrong
Now I think it's time to write a better chapter in my life
Leaving all those things that keep me wrapped so tight

'Cause everyone wants everyone else's everything
And sometimes the more we have the less we really gain
And I'm tired of loving all that money has to buy
Get out of my heart, I don't mind my leaving you behind

And why are we obsessed with possessions here on earth?
Go and take a look at the flowers and the birds
God is always taking care of nature's every need
And how much more important in the Father's eyes are we?
I said, how much more important in the Father's eyes are we?
He sees everything

And everyone wants everyone else's everything
And sometimes the more we have the less we really gain
And I'm tired of loving all that money has to buy
Get you out of my heart, I don't mind my leaving you behind
Get you out of my heart, I don't mind my leaving you behind
Out of my heart, I don't mind my leaving you behind

    General CommentGod is always taking care of nature's every need, and how much more important in the Father's eyes are we?

    That is so powerful...sometimes when I feel like things aren't going my way, I get mad at God, and then I realise it doesn't matter whether things are going MY way or not because GOD'S way is the best and only way, and He will always take care of me!

    General CommentTo me this song just talks about growing as a Christian. There are always times where things will get us off track or attempt to get us off track and we have to dismiss them and get back with God.
    I especially like where it says
    "why are we obsessed with possessions here on earth?
    Go and take a look at the flowers and the birds
    God is always taking care of nature's every need
    And how much more important in the Father's eyes are we?"
    I can be quite the worrier but when I hear this song, I realize how naive it is to worry because if God can care for the simple creations He can certainly care for us. And all the time we've spent worrying, we don't even realize that God is taking care of us constantly.
    Such a good song by a wonderful band.
