"One Time Too Many" as written by and Jason David/cooper Roy....
All the little pieces of time
Are adding up to nothing again
You'd think I'd finally get this right
I think I've fought it one time to many
Just one time to many

I'm the king of nothing today
Looking up to heaven I call your name

Come on and change me
Cause you know what I need
Could you break away the ice frozen around my heart
Could you reach through
And help me to know you
Cause I'm stranded in this place
Falling on my face over and over again

I'm holding onto all my mistakes
Thinking I'm not worthy of your grace
I need to know you love me tonight
Cause I've fallen one time too many
Just one time to many

I'm the king of nothing today
Looking up to heaven I call Your name

Am I really worth the price you paid for me
I can't believe it?
I hear you say

That you'll change me
Cause yo know what I need
And You'll break away the ice frozen around my heart
And You'll reach through
And help me to know you
Cause standing in this place
Calling on your name over and over
Come on and change me
Cause you know what I need
Could you break away the ice frozen around my heart
Could you reach through
And help me to know you
Cause I'm stranded in this place
Falling on my face over and over again

    General CommentI relate to this song so much more than other Christian songs. I love how he is so honest about the fact that he keeps stumbling and messing up, and he is calling out to God to please help him change his ways so he won't keep messing up. This pretty much describes my own walk with God-- constantly messing up, constantly falling short, and asking for God's help. I relate to this more than the worship-y "You are my savoir and I love you, I surrender all" songs that seem dominate Christian radio these days.
