LOOKING UP TO THE SKYS

LOOKING UP TO THE SKYS:
I FALL TO MY KNEES LOOKING UP AT THE SKY. LOOKING TO YOU, WONDERING WHY. IS THIS THE PLAN FOR ME YOU WISH TO IMPLY? PLEASE TELL ME SOMETHING, GIVE ME A SIGN. I CANT KEEP GOING ON LIVING THIS LIE. I WANNA LIVE FOREVER AND NEVER WANNA DIE. IM LOOKING FOR THE ANSWERS AT THE BOTTOM OF A BOTTLE. GOT MY MIND TWISTED, GOT ME REAL BOGGLED. IM A SINNER, BORN AND RAISED, IN A GOOD HOME AND YET STILL I STRAY. PLEASE FORGIVE ME FOR ALL THAT I'VE DONE. RELIEVE ME OF THIS BURDEN, IM LAYING DOWN THE GUN. I WANT TO WALK A NEW PATH, MAKE IT RIGHT. IM GIVING IT TO YOU LORD, GIVING UP THE FIGHT. I FALL TO MY KNEES, LOOKING UP TO THE SKY, LOOKING TO YOU WONDERING WHY.
I DON'T WANT TO STAY HERE, I WANT TO GO HOME. STOP KNOCKING BACK THE WHISKEY AND POUR OUT THE PATRONE. THIS LIFE THAT IM LIVING AIN'T ENOUGH NO MORE, IM GETTING UP AND WALKING STRAIGHT OUT THAT DOOR. LORD, TO YOU, I GIVE MY LIFE. STEPPING OUT OF DARKNESS AND INTO THE LIGHT. I WAS BLIND, BUT NOW I SEE THE PLAN THAT YOU REALLY HAD FOR ME. YOU SENT YOUR ONLY SON TO DIE ON THE CROSS. GIVE THANKS TO THE LORD WHO PAYED THE COST. SO THAT SOULS LIKE ME WOULDN'T BE LOST. FOREVER ON MY HEART YOUR NAME EMBOSSED.
I BOW TO YOU ON BENDED KNEE. LIVING IN YOUR LOVE IS WHERE IM MEANT TO BE. GOD IS GREAT, GOD IS GOOD, TRYING TO LIVE MY LIFE THE WAY JESUS WOULD. I LOVE HIM AND HE LOVES ALL, HE DELIVERED ME FROM SIN AND THE ALCOHOL. HE'S MY BEST FRIEND, HE'LL BE THERE TILL THE END, WITH HIS EVERLASTING LOVE FROM ABOVE HE DESENDS. IM NOT ON MY KNEES OR LOOKING TO THE SKY OR LOOKING TO YOU AND ASKING YOU WHY. LIVING IN YOUR LOVE IS WHERE IM MEANT TO BE FOR YOU LORD HAVE SET ME FREE.
