I spend my life wasting
all the precious time I've got
I use Your gifts carelessly
without a second thought
I can't be like You
I'm not that strong
I'm selfish and I don't share
but You pick me up
You show me love
even when I don't care
oh I don't care

CHORUS
You give a little, You take a little
then You give it right back
You give a little, You take a little
then you hand it right back
You give me life eternal
and all you want is me
so I'll give a little
I'll give a little

I treasure the good life
I love to hear my own name
I fight for my prideful ways
and then I wonder why there's so much pain
I can't be like You
I'm not that strong
I'm just not that pure
but Your heart's so big
You let me in
and I'm rest assured

CHORUS

My body's weak
I'm not that strong
no I can't be like You
but with Your strength
I'll be tough enough
to see this life through

CHORUS

    General CommentI love this song, it really has helped me in thime when i have doubted it. I was a conference that DBMB played at and nothing that whole week had made me feel closer to God until until i heard this song and everything fell into place.
    I think it's about just taking that time you've got on earth and doing as much as you can for God in that time, because thats what he wants.
