Jars Of Clay

5 Candles (You Were There) – Jars Of Clay

A promise or a dare
I would jump if I knew you’d catch me
Staring over the edge
I can’t tell if you’ll be here for me


I close my eyes and make a wish
Turn out the lights and take a breath
Pray that when the wick is burned
You would say that it’s all about love


Chorus:


You were there when I needed you
You were there when the skies broke wide, wide open
You were there when I needed you
You were there when the skies broke wide, wide open


You were never here


I remember you said
Love was more than your good intentions
Empty boxes on the floor
Things I never asked you for
I pray that when the wick is burned
You would say that it’s all about love


[Chorus]


I can’t see the promise of
Excuses you fall upon
I pray to God not holding on
To things you’ve left undone


[Chorus x 2]


You were there when I
You were there when I
You were there when I needed you

Jars Of Clay – Fade To Grey

It’s not hard to know what you’re thinking
When you look down on me now
Your trance of love is seeking
To turn this world around
But in my state of blind confusion
No God can pull me out
I see your love is willing
To turn me inside out


And then I see you there
The lonely tears I cry
I wish they’d release me


It’s in despair that I find faith
Summon the night to bow down to day
When ignorance is bliss
Save me from myself


Chorus:


And then I see You there
With Your arms open wide and You try to embrace me
These lonely tears I cry
They keep me in chains and I wish they’d release me
Cold is the night but
Colder still is the heart made of stone, turned from clay
And if you follow me
You’ll see all the black, all the white fade to grey


Fade to grey
Fade to grey


[Chorus x 2]
