count up all the times
i've been through this before, but not so bad.
i'm living in a lie.
and the worst part is to know that i'm not right.
but through these times, i know you're with me.
something's gotta change.
i tell myself to let it go. then i don't.

and i cannot hide
when honesty says i've lied.
regretful and wondering why
you heal me deep inside.
you whisper to me, "it's gonna be okay."
i'm gonna be okay.
you're right here with me.
here with me.
teach, you teach me.

complicate the lie.
our moods that darken almost daily.
and all the time, i heard a voice say
better won't come until i change me
and something moved inside.
teach me your will. for my life, my life.
i cannot hide when honesty says i've lied.
regretful and wondering why
you heal me deep inside.
this choice is mine.
i'll follow you all the time
and do what i know is right.
and when i can't find my mind,
you whisper to me, "it's gonna be okay."
i'm gonna be okay.
you're right here with me.

teach, you teach me.
complicate the lie.
our moods that darken almost daily.
and all the time, i heard a voice say
better won't come until i change me.
and something moved inside.
teach me your will. for my life, my life.
everything will be okay
but everything won't be the same
and that's all right.

    General CommentI feel like this is song is a call to live our lives to the limit, to stop lying to ourselves and saying that every thing's ok, because every thing's not ok. We think that God's just gonna come swoop in and change our lives. But it's not just that simple, God gives us the tools and the power the change our lives, but the change, the decision, has to come from us. And even though we struggle with this, even though it makes things hard, everything will be ok, as long as we trust God, and as long as we're honest.
