       ŅTHAT THINGÓ

                                                                                                                                  

 

 

 

INTRO (TALKING)

 

 

THAT THINGÉ.YOU KNOW SOMETIMES ITÕS  UNDESCRIBABLE, THAT ZEAL,THAT PASSION THAT

YOU ONCE HAD FOR GOD, BUT THE CARES OF LIFE CAME AND TOOK IT AWAY. BUT YOU GOTTA

DO EVERYTHING IN YOUR POWER TO GET BACK THAT THING.

 

 

VERSE 1

 

 

IÕM SEARCHING FOR SOMETHING BUT I CANÕT DESCRIBE IT

 

A SPARK TO MY SOUL THAT WAS ONCE IGNITED

 

EXCITED I WAS BACK NOT TOO LONG AGO

 

REMEMBER SO VIVIDLY BUT WHERE DID IT GO

 

THERE WAS A TIME HEÕS ALL I THOUGHT ABOUT PLUS

 

 THERE WAS A TIME MY ZEAL NOONE COULD DOUBT CAUSE

 

MY LOVE STRETCHED BEYOND THE THINGS HE TRULY DOES

 

INSTEAD I FOUND MYSELF PRAISING FOR WHO HE WAS

 

AND IS AND WHAT HE CONTINUES TO BE

 

THE ALMIGHTY ONE, THATÕS WHAY ITÕS CONFUSING TO ME

 

HOW, AS TIME PASSES THINGS I USED TO DO

 

TO SHOW MY PASSION FOR HIM NO LONGER GREW

 

ITÕS TRUE, MY PRAISE THAT I HAD PRIOR LOST ITÕS FIRE

 

BUT NOW MY DESIRE IS TO TRY TO TAKE IT HIGHER

 

I PLAN TO RECOVER THE LOSS OF THAT ZING

 

BUT I WONÕT BE SATISFIED ŌTIL I CAPTURE THAT THING

 

 

CHORUS (SINGING)

 

 

THAT THING, THAT THING THAT MADE ME GIVE UP MY HEART

 

THAT THING, THAT THING THAT GAVE ME A BRAND NEW START

 

THAT THING, THAT THING, LORD IÕM SEARCHING FOR THAT THING

 

THAT THING, I NEED, NEED BACK THAT THING

 

 

VERSE 2

 

 

THAT DESIRE TO READ AND STUDY THE BIBLE

 

THAT DESIRE TO KNOW HIM BETTER WAS VITAL

 

THATÕS HOW I USED TO BE, OFTEN IÕD BE ON MY KNEES AND

 

SEEKING HIS VOICE AND FINDING WAYS TO PLEASE HIM

 

LEAVING BEHIND THE SINS I USED TO COMMIT

 

PURGING MYSELF DAILY IS HOW MY TIME WAS SPENT

 

MOST OF MY FRIENDS CHANGED, ALL BUT A FEW

 

THEY THOUGHT I WAS STRANGE AND GODÕS ALL I KNEW

 

BUT IT WAS COOL BECAUSE FRIENDS IN THE FAITH HE WAS SENDING ME

 

NOT TO MENTION HE TOLD ME YOU GOT A FRIEND IN ME

 

A LIGHT SO BRIGHT, ITÕD BE HARD TO BURN IT OUT

 

DEVOUT AND EAGER TO KNOW WHAT I COULD LEARN ABOUT

 

EVERY CHANCE THAT I GOT, I TRIED TO WITNESS

 

AND A DESIRE TO PRAY FOR EVERY SICKNESS

 

A PASSION GREATER THAN MY LOVE TO RAP AND SING

 

BUT I DIDNÕT KNOW ITÕS POSSIBLE LOSING THAT THING

 

 

CHORUS

 

 

VERSE 3

 

 

STUCK IN A RUT, THE NEED TO PROVIDE AND

 

RAISING MY KIDS AND WORKING OVERTIME AND

 

THE OTHER THINGS THAT CONTRIBUTED TO THIS CHANGE

 

THE FIRE THAT I USED TO HAVE IS NOW BARELY A FLAME

 

ITÕS STRANGE, HOW DID I LOSE PASSION FOR WHAT I LOVE

 

AND WHY ARE THE CARES OF LIFE ALWAYS IÕM THINKING OF

 

CONSTANTLY, HOW MANY OF YÕALL WITH ME

 

WHILE SEARCHING FOR THE ANSWER IT QUICKLY THEN ALL HIT ME

 

THE ENEMYÕS JOB IS TO TRY TO INTERJECT

 

AND TAKE YOU OFF COURSE SO YOUÕRE NO LONGER A THREAT

 

THATÕS HIS STRATEGY, MENTAL ASSAULT AND BATTERY

 

CONSTANTLY USING HIS EVIL SCHEMES TO SHATTER ME

 

THATÕLL BE EQUVILENT TO THE THORNS THAT CHOKE

 

THE SOWERÕS SEEDS IN THE PARABLE CHRIST SPOKE

 

CAUSE BEING UNFRUITFUL, WHAT COULD THAT BRING

 

NOTHING AT ALL SO I MUST STRENGTHEN THAT THING

 

 

CHORUS

 

 

BRIDGE

 

 

THAT THING THAT MAKES YOU REALIZE AND ALWAYS RECOGNIZE WHAT GOD MEANS TO YOU

 

THAT THING TO TURN AWAY FROM SIN BECAUSE TO PLEASE HIM IS YOUR FAVORITE THING TO DO

 

THAT THING TO STAY IN YOUR WORD WHERE WORSHIPÕS PREFERRED EVEN ON YOUR WEARY DAYS

 

THAT THING TO FAST AND PRAY, IT MAKES YOU WANT TO GIVE HIM ALL OF YOUR PRAISE

 

 

VAMP (SINGING)

 

 

LORD IF I JUST HAVE THAT THING

 

THAT THING THAT GETS ME CLOSER TO YOU LORD

 

JESUS IÕM SEARCHING FOR THAT THING

 

I NEED, I NEED BACK THAT THING

 

MORE THAT ANYTHING I NEED BACK THAT THING
