"The Things You Were" as written by Wesley James Blaylock, Justin Weis Froning, Kelsey Grant Harelson, Laura Beth Hudson and Andrew Gordon Moore....
It's making perfect sense
Why I'm putting this one off
I'm gonna take that second chance
Before the day is done
I think to myself
Maybe this is love
Or maybe it's something else
I slowly come apart
But I'm trying to let go
What if this is love
What I barely believe in

You were ordinary
Until you came and saved me
This is not what it seems
No, you've taken me by surprise
And given me new life, yeah

I turned every light on
But I still can't find my way
And I forget this one is love
What's it take to remind me

You were ordinary
Until you came and saved me
This is not what it seems
No, you've taken me by surprise
And given me new life, yeah

It's something to live for
It's something to live for
It's something to live for
It's something to live for
It's something to live for

You were ordinary
Until you came and saved me
This is not what it seems
No, you've taken me by surprise
And given me new life, yeah
Given me new life, yeah
Given me new life
