"Any Other Way" as written by Mike Donehey and Jason Ingram....
Don't say goodbye, don't say hello
We're just standing on the surface
Don't say alright, don't say I know
I promise it's not worth it

I want to know who you are
Even if you're falling apart
Reach in and touch your scars
And all the shame you've kept in your heart

'Cause it's not enough
It's not enough
Just to say that you're okay
I need your hurt I need your pain
It's not love any other way

Let's not pretend
Stop your parade
Trying to convince me
That you're alright and everything's OK
Do you even know me

'Cause I already know who you are
And all things that kept us apart
So reach in and touch My scars
And know the price I paid for your heart

'Cause it's not enough
It's not enough
Just to say that you're okay
I need your hurt I need your pain
It's not love any other way

A broken and contrite heart
I will not despise
Come as you are
And I won't close my eyes
I won't close my eyes
I won't close my eyes
I won't close my eyes

'Cause it's not enough
It's not enough
Just to say that you're okay
I need your hurt I need your pain
It's not love any other way

'Cause it's not enough it's not enough
Just to say that you're okay
You needed my hurt, you needed my pain
It's not love any other way
It's not love any other way
Yeah, it's not love any other way

    General CommentWe don't have to pretend with God. He wants us to come as we are: broken. He already knows everything about us! He's the only One who can take our sin and pain and make us regenerated, and He's waiting to do it.
