So lost
Sometime I feel like I'm all alone
Like I'm down here all by myself
Tell me when you comin' back to take me home
Father
I been told that the streets are paved with gold
And the lion lays with the lamb
They say it'll be nothing like I've ever known
And when I get there

All of my burdens
I can't wait to lay them down
My savior
Can't wait to see you in that sweet old by and by
Oh
The clock is tickin'
We're runnin' out of time
What I've been livin' for
Is finally about to be mine
That's why I'm gonna be everything you want me to be
Don't take your love from me

Everyday every night
That's why I'm livin' to see your face
You're the one
You're my life and I can't replace
That's why I've got to be everything you want me to be
Don't take your love from me

And when it gets hard
I still retain my faith
The harder the trials come
I still get on my knees and pray
And say thank you
I know the road will get rough
The sea will get stormy
But if I keep my eyes on you
I know you've prepared a place for me
And your word says it's true
And when I get there

All of my burdens
I can't wait to lay them down
My savior
Can't wait to see you in that sweet old by and by
Oh
The clock is tickin'
We're runnin' out of time
What I've been livin' for
Is finally about to be mine
That's why I'm gonna be everything you want me to be
Don't take your love from me
Everyday every night
That's why I'm livin' to see your face
You're the one
You're my life and I can't replace
That's why I've got to be everything you want me to be
Don't take your love from me

And do gonna do what I have to do
To make it through
I don't wanna be left down here
When you go

Clock is tickin'
We're runnin' out of time
What I've been livin' for
Is finally about to be mine
That's why I'm gonna be everything you want me to be
Don't take your love from me
Everyday every night
That's why I'm livin' to see your face
You're the one
You're my life and I can't replace
That's why I've got to be everything you want me to be
Don't take your love from me

Clock is tickin'
We're runnin' out of time
What I've been livin' for
Is finally about to be mine
That's why I'm gonna be everything you want me to be
Don't take your love from me
Everyday every night
That's why I'm livin' to see your face
You're the one
You're my life and I can't replace
That's why I've got to be everything you want me to be
Don't take your love from me
