"You Are More" as written by Mike Donehey and Jason Ingram....
There's a girl in the corner
With tear stains on her eyes
From the places she's wandered
And the shame she can't hide

She says, how did I get here?
I'm not who I once was.
And I'm crippled by the fear
That I've fallen too far to love

But don't you know who you are,
What's been done for you?
Yeah don't you know who you are?

You are more than the choices that you've made,
You are more than the sum of your past mistakes,
You are more than the problems you create,
You've been remade.

Well she tries to believe it
That she's been given new life
But she can't shake the feeling
That it's not true tonight

She knows all the answers
And she's rehearsed all the lines
And so she'll try to do better
But then she's too weak to try

But don't you know who you are?

You are more than the choices that you've made,
You are more than the sum of your past mistakes,
You are more than the problems you create,
You've been remade.

You are more than the choices that you've made,
You are more than the sum of your past mistakes,
You are more than the problems you create,
You've been remade.

'Cause this is not about what you've done,
But what's been done for you.
This is not about where you've been,
But where your brokenness brings you to

This is not about what you feel,
But what He felt to forgive you,
And what He felt to make you loved.

You are more than the choices that you've made,
You are more than the sum of your past mistakes,
You are more than the problems you create,
You've been remade.

You are more than the choices that you've made,
You are more than the sum of your past mistakes,
You are more than the problems you create,
You've been remade.

You've been remade
You've been remade.
You've been remade.
You've been remade.

    General Comment I just got this album not to long ago. Already a fan of tenth avenue north, but this album brings me closer. I write lyrics a lot, and I always feel God's help when I do write. I can feel God within their songs, and this song especially just brings me to tears.

    I think we all need to be reminded about how much we really our. But the only way we our, is because of what Jesus did for us. With him, all of what we have done doesn't matter. He let his body be broken and he let his blood be spilled for us. I'm working in my life to not take what he did for granted.

    God bless everyone. Don't give up on him, because he hasn't given up on you. I have even seen his work in peoples life recently. I have gotten to see the work he does, in peoples lives. Some people try to say that God is not here. But he is very well here and he is calling you home.

    General CommentIf anyone is familiar with Casting Crowns, this song reminds me of their hit "Does Anybody Hear Her?" Both songs are basically about a young woman finding something more than her life mistakes. But on a light note, why are these types of songs sung, usually, about women?

    Anyone, fabulous song. Anytime I screw up and fall into sin and feel like I've fallen too far for God's love...this reminds me that God is always there for me, yI just have to go looking.

    General CommentLove this song so much. I've spent so many years being dragged down by my past mistakes when I had fallen from grace. This song reminds me that God see's me as MORE than that. That I've "been remade" that my slate is clean because he is so forgiving.
