"Over My Head" as written by and Deryck Whibley Greig Andrew Nori....
After the words have all been said
After the songs are sung
I realize I've only but just begun
Trying to wrap my mind around
Extravagant love come down
Leaves me undone
Finds me with nothing to say

Chorus:
The reach of Your fame
The power in Your name
Your glory surrounds me
It's over my head, It's over my head
The shame of the cross
For all that it cost
This friendship astounds me
It's over my head, It's over my head

Unquenchable songs and endless praise
A million tongues poised to sing
Could still not convey
The worth that Your name deserves
Beauty for ashes
Joy for pain
Mercy instead of my blame
Ruins me for more
I'm lost in Your presence, Lord

(Chorus)
Hallelujah...

Lost for the words to say
I'm left here in disarray
Waiting for You, waiting on truth
I've thrown reason overboard
Knowing that there's still more
I don't yet believe, I can't even perceive
I can't seem to understand
Can't seem to find my way
It's over my head, it's over my head
Learning this mystery
Trust what I cannot see
It's over my head, it's over my head
The wonder of all You've made
Foundations Your hands have laid
Bringing me back to my knees, to my knees
I'm lost for the words to say
Lost for another way
Bringing me back to my knees, to my knees
I'm lost for the words to say
Lost for another way
Ruined for anything other than Your love
I'm desperate to know You, Lord
Desperate for what's in store
Finding my hope in only You, in only You
Take me beyond this door
Lead me to something more
Open my heart up for more of You, more of You

    General CommentOne of their best songs. i believe. the Musical quality is alright, but the lyrics give it a high marker on my standards. It stresses the awe we have for GOd, and how his love for us is so great, that its simply over my head...meaning we just dont understand it...how all that he's made is a reason to get on our knees and thank Him. This song stresses a personal relationship, as the singer cries out in the ending for "more of you more of, i'm lost for the words to say , left here in dissaray."
    a beautiful song...and who cares if its long

    General CommentI think the fact that it's like seven minutes long makes it even more awesome!! Tim does such a great job on the end.
