       ŌSTILL IN CHARGEĶ

                                                                                                                                  

 

 

 

VERSE 1

 

 

 

ITÕS NOT ABOUT ME BUT ITÕS ALL ABOUT YOU

 

WHY DID I EVER PROCEED TO DOUBT YOU

 

KNOWING THAT I HAVE NO AUTHORITY OVER THIS

 

I CAN ONLY CHANGE THESE THINGS IF YOU EXIST

 

THINGS LIKE ALWAYS ASKING THE QUESTION WHY

 

OR DO YOU REALLY HEAR ME WHENEVER I CRY

 

I CALLED FOR YOUR HELP BUT YOUR VOICE WAS FAINT

 

MY LACK OF FAITH IN YOU MADE MY VISION TAINT

 

IÕM NOT AT ALL PROUD BUT LORD I CAN ADMIT IT

 

WHEN I NEVER SAW THE RESULTS I WAS OFFENDED

 

IT TOOK MANY YEARS AND MANY TEARS TO KNOW

 

WITHOUT GOING THROUGH TRIBULATION YOUÕLL NEVER GROW

 

NOW I REALIZE IT, BUT THEN I WAS CONFUSED

 

YOU CHOOSE FOR ME TO PAY DUES AND BE ABUSED

 

MY ENEMIES CAME BUT YOU DIDNÕT CONVICT THEM

 

AINÕT IT FUNNY WHEN A PERSON LIVES WRONG THAT THEYÕRE THE VICTIM

 

THAT WAS ME, NOT LOOKING AT MYSELF

 

JUST LIKE SOMEONE ROBBING GOD EXPECTING WEALTH

 

THIS FEELING CAME FROM MY INNERMOST FEAR

 

OF THE THOUGHT OF NEEDING YOU AND YOU WOULDNÕT BE NEAR

 

LORD IÕM SORRY, BUT SOMETIMES ITÕS HARD FOR ME TO SEE

 

THAT THROUGH MY DOUBT THAT YOUR INTEREST STILL IS ME

 

I DIDNÕT ALWAYS FEEL IT AND THOUGH IT WAS HARD

 

I CAME TO GRIPS WITH THE FACT YOU ARE STILL IN CHARGE

 

 

CHORUS

 

 

 

I TRIED TO DO EVERYTHING MY OWN WAY

 

AND DO IT MYSELF, DIDNÕT WANT TO OBEY

 

OR SUBMIT, MY NEGLECT WAS NOTHING NEW

 

BECAUSE YOU DIDNÕT ANSWER THE WAY I WANTED YOU

 

GETTING UPSET OVER THINGS I COULDNÕT CHANGE

 

INSTEAD OF JUST TRUSTING IN YOU TO EASE MY PAIN

 

AND STANDING STILL, LACK OF FAITH I TOOK IT TOO FAR

 

FOR IÕM NOT THE ONE IN CHARGE BUT YOU ARE

 

 

VERSE 2

 

 

 

GOD REPLIED, IÕM IN CHARGE SO DONÕT YOU WORRY

 

AND WHEN YOU NEED ME IÕLL BE THERE IN A HURRY

 

YOU NEED TO KNOW, THAT IÕVE ALWAYS BEEN YOUR PILOT

 

REMEMBER WHO BROUGHT YOU OUT OF YOUR SIN, I DID

 

JUST KEEP SILENT, FOR THAT SEEMS TO BE THE PROBLEM

 

YOU TRY TO PLAY GOD WITH YOUR PROBLEMS AND TRY TO SOLVE THEM

 

YOU CANÕT CHANGE WHAT IÕVE DONE, MY WILL IS PERFECT

 

SRESSING ABOUT THINGS YOU CANÕT CHANGE, NOW IS IT WORTH IT

 

YOU CAN BE MAD AT ME BUT IÕM STILL IN CONTROL

 

ITÕS ONLY WHEN YOU TRUST ME YOUR ANSWERS WILL UNFOLD

 

NO FAITH IN ME, YOU NEED TO STOP THIS

 

IF YOU NEED HELP, RELAX, I GOT THIS

 

IÕVE BEEN IN CHARGE EVEN BEFORE YOUR BIRTH

 

WHERE WERE YOU WHEN I LAID THE FOUNDATIONS OF THIS EARTH

 

I KNOW MY JOB MORE THAN YOU DO, ITÕS TRUE

 

NO ONE ELSE HAS UNCONDITIONAL LOVE OVER YOU

 

YOU MIGHT BELIEVE YOUR SITUATION STAYED THE SAME

 

YOU TRUSTED IN EVERYTHING EXCEPT TO CALL ON MY NAME

 

FOR I CAN CHANGE THINGS IN WAYS YOU CANÕT IMAGINE

 

IÕM NOT WITHOLDING YOUR BLESSINGS FOR YOU CAN HAVE THEM

 

IÕM NOT THAT KIND OF GOD THAT WOULD ENJOY

 

WATCHING YOU SUFFER LIKE A CHILD PLAYING A TOY

 

AND WHEN I DO EASE YOUR PAIN YOU MUST UNDERSTAND

 

IN THE END IÕM STILL IN CHARGE, SO NOW WHOÕS THE MAN

 

 

CHORUS
