Caedmon's Call Truth Lyrics

Last updated: 01/08/2008 10:00:00 AM

I’ve been putting on and putting off too many people,
and I’m getting old to live
Like an injured man, ailments and unfilled prescription
Like the nose on my face.
Like a broken boat, safety raft, love for the water
Well I just can’t decide
to sink of swim it’s me or them should I save myself?
Or go back for the others…

Because maybe there’s no gray and I was wrong to tell them so
Then maybe all that I’ve to do was done a long time ago

REFRAIN
Because there was life before my life
There was provision before my need
There was redemption for my sin
for the sake of the world, I thank the Lord
that the truth’s not contingent on me.

‘Cause I’ve been dressing up and dressing down for too many people
And I’m a little young to live
Like a troubled boy, a troubled soul, fish out of water
‘Cause we’re all just the same
We’re all just as good, and just as bad, and just as distracted
by the corners of our eyes
As our father’s were and theirs before and all those before them
But still I glance around.

And with the way I stare you'd think I'd seen through a two by four.
And with the way I walk you’d think I’d never seen grace before.

Because there was life before my life
There was provision before my need
There was redemption for my sin
for the sake of the world, I thank the Lord
that the truth’s not contingent on me.

I’ve been putting up and putting down too many things
I know nothing about
Well I’m jealous of, holding pride as tight as I can
Like she was my only daughter.

There was life before my life
There was provision before my need
There was redemption for my sin
for the sake of the world.
I thank the Lord
that the truth’s not contingent on me.

‘Cause the truth’s not contingent on me.

Powerful Song | Reviewer: Stephen Patterson | 1/8/2008

If you like Derek Webb and "Wedding Dress", this song is a must have! I believe it is only availible on Intamate Portrait, and iTunes doesn't have it. Buy the album! You won't be sorry!
