"How Can You Live" as written by and Kerry A Livgren....
Are you climbing the walls, but the walls are too high?
Do you fall to the ground when you reach for the sky?
Does the picture you have in your mind never turn out right?
Do the things that you do leave a hole in your soul?
Is the best you can do always short of the goal?
And the way it's supposed to be just never is

How can you live when nothing's there?
Something is gone inside you now
Look to the Word that says it all
Everything will turn out fine

Does the fly in the ointment get under your skin?
Have you had quite enough of the state that you're in?
Are you living in style, but you find that it leaves you cold?
And the years of your life are just drifting away
There is nothing to feel, you have nothing to say
But the emptiness in your heart is getting old

How can you live when nothing's there?
Something is gone inside you now
Look to the Word that says it all
Everything will turn out fine

There ain’t no reason to doubt it
‘cause there’s no living without it
I know it’s hard to believe it
Somehow you’ve got to receive it

Does your social position reflect who you are?
Does the face in the mirror look back from afar?
And the look in your eyes is of someone you don't know
So you're trying to cope with the world on your own
And you're still unaware that the way has been shown
And the doorway of hope is standing open wide

(x3) How can you live when nothing's there?
Something is gone inside you now
Look to the Word that says it all
Everything will turn out fine
