JEREMY CAMP lyrics - Speaking Louder Than Before

Slow Down Time

Original and similar lyrics
Staring at this empty canvas, waiting for the next stroke of my life. It seems to go by so fast. Another day I've wasted wondering, How it all ends up instead of resting, that it's all in Your hands. My only piece is waiting before You. My praise to You, Drowning noise around me. [Chorus:] I wish I could slow down time, I wish I could wait here at your feet. 'Cause with you is the only place that I wanna be. I know I should take it all in stride. I know you are there with every reach. 'Cause with you is the only place that I wanna be. On my own I always fade out fast, On the run my every step will last. I'm resting in your words that never fail. Your searching every part of me. I need to stop so I could hear You speak. I long for you so here I am so thirsty. My only piece is waiting before You. My praise to You, Drowning the noise around me. [Chorus] It's where I wanna be, The greatness of your presence always leaving me here speechless. I've given up on making this life my home. In the fullness of your glory is beyond my comprehension. There's no greater joy then being with you my King. [Chorus x2]

High Life

COUNTING CROWS "The Desert Life"
Such a life Such a life Such a life 'such a life, such a life,such a life, I'm a comet (common, uncommon).. honestly I don't know why' All my friends got flowers in their eyes But I got none this season All of last year's blooms have gone and died Time doesn't give a reason well hey maybe you ask yourself Sometimes what you need to be forgiven Everything that you ever done wrong Is the reason that I'm driven Straight to tears Waiting here for you Wanting to tell you How I get me ends and my beginnings mixed up, too Just the way you do I thought if I told you You might want to stay for just another day or two It's just like answers that come in small packages that go in the mail Waiting for the trains that just never come Beginning to believe in The disappearing nature of the people we have been We have begun to change Into the worst kind of people So unkind Oh apologies No apologies This apology doesn't describe The way it feels to feel for you Waiting here for you Wanting to tell you How I find myself slowly disappearing, too Just the way you do I thought if I told you You might want to help me to remain with you I just wanna stay for a little while I wanna stay a little while Oh, come on [4 times] Cause there's a night life just falling down on me I just feel like a change Beneath the sun in the summer a sea of flowers Won't bloom without the rain But oh this desert life This high life Here at the dying end of the day I wasn't made for the scene, baby But I was made in this scene, baby It's just my way I don't wanna go home alone I wanna come on home to you Waiting here for you Wanting to tell you How I line my sky with all the silver I can use Just the way you do I thought if I told you You might want to stay for just another day or two [whispering-like] Isn't that just like disappearing into the sum of yourself and the person you are disappearing into it's like one plus one equals nothing at all one plus two equals nothing at all one plus me equals nothing at all one plus you equals one plus you equals you equals you and you and you and nothing at all [repeated 10 times]

Stranger

JAMESTOWN STORY "Show Me Tomorrow"
I used to walk, I used to wander down these roads searching for a place that I could call my home but I never seemed to find anywhere I didn't leave behind I packed my things, followed the wind adding distance to the places I had been the air was warm but I was cold within I walked for miles until I came across a southern bell who lead me to a town where people hung around for their whole life it was the perfect place but somehow I just didn't feel at home so I left before the sun came up at dawn but it was cold so I caught a cab, when I told him to go anywhere he laughed then what he said I'll never forget He said "Son you've got to understand happiness has never been a place that you could go it's the people that you know I could take you further East or West but I don't think you'll rest until you go back to the ones who truly make a place a home" Take me home, that's where I wanna go so take me home, yes sir I wanna go home I realize taking this walk down memory lane the best advice I ever got was on that day I owe my life and everything to a stranger I don't even know his name

Remenissions

AVENGED SEVENFOLD "Waking The Fallen"
With this ink in our skin we've sealed our fate, and the axe comes early (only naturally) So what does that matter? There's a bed of skeletons waiting for me, on the other side They're waiting for my next move (next fatal breath) Human lives to me seem so unreal, can't see through the fog (nothing past a grey wall) see past the stereotype Belief, structure built up in you. I'll tear you down and the one who created you If they didn't have One how would they act? If we didn't have hope how would we behave? Would they still feel remorse if they slaughtered innocent beings? Or is hope the only thing that keeps you sane? A good friend once told me we are our memory without it we equal nothing And all I can see is the place I wanna be Timeless my life was so free Leaves at my feet, blown to the ground their echoes are reaching my ears Nights coming fast, suns going down But keep away from me... keep away from me (it's hard, to keep me in this place, keep away from me) We may have created the beginning, mentally We may have created the beginning, physically To the end of our human existence... I see through you The fear that's in your eyes A good friend once told me we are our memory Without it we equal nothing And all I can see is the place I wanna be Timeless my life was so free Leaves at my feet, blown to the ground their echoes are reaching my ears Nights coming fast, suns going down - confused I don't know the answers but neither do you.

Once Again

Tim Hughes
Jesus Christ, I think upon Your sacrifice You became nothing, poured out to death Many times I've wondered at Your gift of life And I'm in that place once again I'm in the place once again And once again I look upon the cross where You died I'm humbled by Your mercy and I'm broken inside Once again I thank You Once again I pour out my life Now You are exalted to the highest place King of the heavens, where one day I'll bow But for now I marvel at Your saving grace And I'm full of praise once again I'm full of praise once again Thank You for the cross Thank You for the cross Thank you for the cross, my friend

Let Me Lay

AUBREY O'DAY "Between Two Evils"
How big a gun would it take to shoot the sun out the sky So daylight won't take you away Can’t wait to sleep, let my mind close the distance from where I Stand and where I wanna be Paralyzed I'm staring in the distance waiting for the night I'm Waiting to get back to my life cause this one ain't right, no this One ain't right I gotta close my eyes to feel alive [CHORUS] Oh, realitys overrated If all we share is only in my dreams Oh, the sunlights only waisted If daylight can never be Then I only wanna dream Let me lay here, Let me lay here, Let me lay here, Let me lay here. [x2] I’d sell my soul for a pill that could keep me in this other dimension with you. There everything That went wrong is corrected I can taste what will never be true. Paralyzed I’m starring in the distance waitin for the night I'm waiting to get back to my life Cause this one ain't right no this one ain't right [CHORUS] I'll be addicted to you for a lifetime But only able to feel you in the nighttime [CHORUS]
