"Love & War" (2009)

Come Alive Lyrics – Barlow Girl

Wake up, get out, there's no time to waste now
Never shut up it's our turn to speak out
These streets are dead just waiting to come alive

Break down the doors of our comfortable room
Tear down the walls we never could see through
Aren't we sick of missing out on life

Do we want more?
Tell me do we want more?

'Cause we've heard the cry and we'll come alive
And we fight for love and we live to die
Because a life that holds no meaning
Is like a day without the light
So we'll come alive tonight

All have the call but so few have listened
Life is too short you don't want to miss this
Make up your mind before life passes by

Now is the time to wake up and see this
World won't revolve around you and me
So let's be the change we've all been waiting for

We are the passion
We are the movement
We are the fire
We'll never lose it

Open Heavens Lyrics – Barlow Girl

A cry rises from the ground
As all the earth begins to shake
Can you feel the spirit move you?
Calling all hearts to wake

Life is rising from these graves
A voice breaks the silence
And warms the dying heart
Oh, this is just the start

'Cause we will open heavens
And well start the flame now
All the earth will shake now
As we scream Your name

Arise, heaven open wide
Passion filling every place
And nows the time
So let it move you
Cause something is about to break

We are falling on our face
Searching for movement
Give us fire in these days
Oh Spirit, lead the way

Hallelujah
Singing Hallelujah
Well cry out from our hearts now

Beautiful Ending Lyrics – Barlow Girl

Oh tragedy has taken so many
Love lost cause it all forgot who you were
And it scares me to think that I would choose
My life over you
Oh my selfish heart
Divides me from you
It tears us apart

So tell me what is our ending
Will it be beautiful
So beautiful

Oh why do I let myself let go
Of hands that painted the stars and holds tears that fall
And the pride of my heart makes me forget
It's not me but you
Who makes the heart beat
I'm lost without you
You're dying for me

So tell me what is our ending
Will it be beautiful
So beautiful
Will my life find me by your side
Your love is beautiful
So beautiful

At the end of it all I wanna be in your arms [x4]

So tell me what is our ending
Will it be beautiful
So beautiful
Will my life find me by your side
Cause your love is beautiful
So beautiful

Stay With Me Lyrics – Barlow Girl

Hopeless, getting through this night
And life is not dying in this fight
I'm begging you to deliver me ooh ooh ooh
Confused why you won't take this pain from me

My steps never felt so hard
The end never look so far but
If you won't take me out
Then please take me through this

Stay with me so I won't leave
And make me see that this is not forever
'Cause all I need is your love pulling me

What is the reason for this night
Is hope found in fullness with no light
Does strength grow in our greatest fears
God I pray something good will come from this pain

With you here I know
I don't go alone
I am yours and so
Through the fire I'll go

Our Worlds Collide Lyrics – Barlow Girl

Tonight the stars are dancing
To the songs the angels sing
I hear You whisper on the breeze
And every sound echoes the rhythm
Of your heart as I begin to fade
Into this lovely night
Im alive

Cause our worlds collide
Im lost in time
Heaven kisses me tonight
Your heart with mine
It beats in time
Now I know why Im alive

Now that Ive found You
I could never let You go away
You left my life never the same
Sing over me and let me hear the words
You wrote for me
Whisper the words and set my spirit free
Oh, sing to me

Love Is Marching Lyrics – Barlow Girl

I was told when I was young
That anyone could change the world
It wouldn't come by power or strength
But through the ones who choose to love

Cause everyone will pass
And when we've breathed our last
Can we say we have lived for more
And did we live to die for
La-la-love la-love
La-la-love la-love

Can you feel his heart beating
The sound of love is marching
And when our hearts begin to break
Along with his, this world will change

Love is marching to his heartbeat

Running Out Of Time Lyrics – Barlow Girl

We are not blind
We know the truth
Still we don't stand
Still we don't choose.

We'd rather stay
So comfortable
Stuck in our world under controle.
We may not pull, the trigger but we, stand by and watch and pretend not to see.

Silence is worse, then evil done what in the world have we become?
Can't you see that...

[Chorus]
This is war,
So pick your side.
It's time to move, not time to hide.
Don't let lies, make up your mind.
Cause you will see,
We're Running Out of Time.

Tomorrow they'll come,
And one day we'll see,
The choices we make, made history.
For it's to late,
When will you stand and chose our words while you still can,
Can't you see that...

[Chorus]
This is war,
So pick your side.
It's time to move, not time to hide.
Don't let lies, make up your mind.
Cause you will see,
We're Running Out of Time.

Running Out of Time.
Running Out of Time.
Can't you see that...

[Chorus]
This is war,
So pick your side.
It's time to move, not time to hide.
Don't let lies, make up your mind.
Cause you will see,
We're Running Out of Time.

Running Out of Time!

Time For You To Go Lyrics – Barlow Girl

I hope you don't mind
That I know your life
Because I read it every day
And all of your faults
Make me feel so good
Because the media stole my brain
It's so nice to have someone tell me what to think
What is it for, do we want more, do we want more?
And on and on it goes 'till all of us are sucked in.
So shut it off and see we're missing out on living

I am so done
Listening to you
Time for you to go
Time for you to go, whoa
No more wasting my life
On this world's addiction
Time for me to take
You to find your place
I am letting go
Time for you to go

Isn't it nice to know
That the media will sway our votes
'Cause seriously we've got to see
That they choose what we know
Our morals get thrown away
For the next big thing we've got to see
What is it for, do we want more, do we want more?
And on and on it goes till all of us are sucked in
So shut it off and see we're missing out on living

I am so done
Listening to you
Time for you to go
Time for you to go, whoa
No more wasting my life
On this world's addiction
Time for me to take
You to find your place
I am letting go
Time for you to go

We're missing out on His voice
We've traded God for ashes
We've got to think for ourselves
Where's our passion?

I am so done
Listening to you
Time for you to go
Time for you to go, whoa
No more wasting my life
On this world's addiction
Time for me to take
You to find your place
I am letting go
Time for you to go

Sing Me A Love Song Lyrics – Barlow Girl

The tension is thick in the air
Making it hard to see
I fear what is to come
And what will become of me
I say a prayer help me not run away
Will you please hold me

And sing me a love song again
Say the words that heal my heart
sing me a love song and then
Let your words remind me who I am

You've never failed me before
Why do I feel betrayed
If I close my heart to you now
The darkness would have its way
I crave your voice help me not fall away
Will you please hold me

'Cause you are all I need
And all that I want is you with me
You are all I need
And all that I want is you with me

Tears Fall Lyrics – Barlow Girl

I have had the same dreams many times it haunts my mind
It starts with a light but it ends every time
Oh so many faces that this world will never see
A reason for your life but your heart will never be

May our tears fall down
Let them soften this ground
May our hearts be found
God forgive us now

Oh what have we lost because we chose we'll never know
And loving you is better than feeling alone
And all our claims to freedom have become these heavy chains
And in the name of rights we keep filling nameless graves

Let the tears fall down
Let them soften this ground
Let our hearts be found
God forgive us now

Oooh

Hello Sunshine Lyrics – Barlow Girl

Hello sunshine it's been too long
since I felt your warmth upon my face
And how much have I missed
'Cause I've been focused on everything wrong
This road just felt so long
I forgot to lift my head to see you

Oh my lovely shining for me
Let my eyes see all the beauty
Oh-oh

Hello sunshine since the moment
That I felt your beautiful warmth
I knew that I'd do anything
To keep this feeling of you
My heart comes alive
Oh who could add a day to this life
By drowning every dark sky

Oh my lovely shining for me
Let my eyes see all the beauty
Oh-oh

Fill my dark skies
Make me see the light
Life is fine so bring in the sunshine
Oh-oh

Whoa-oh let in the sunshine
Whoa-oh let in the sunshine
Whoa-oh let in the sunshine
Let in the sunshine

"How Can We Be Silent" (2007)

Song For The Broken Lyrics – Barlow Girl

I am the comfortable secure
The definition of this western world, and
I have perfected deceit
Even I believe, I'm above, saving (yeah)
And I'll never, let you see

I am the broken
I am the bruised
I am the poor ones
I have been used

It takes me falling to the ground
To admit to, fully needing you
Then When I'm breathing my last breath
"Come and save me" I will cry to you
'Cause pride has not, let me say

I am the broken
I am the bruised
I am the poor ones
I have been used

(Oh why does it take so much?)
To bring me to my knees,
(Oh why does it take so much?)
Pain for me to see,
(If strength is only found when)
I am on my knees,
(Why is it so hard)
To show that I am weak? Yeah yeah

I am the broken
I am the bruised
I am the poor ones
I have been used.

I Believe In Love Lyrics – Barlow Girl

How long will my prayers seem unanswered?
Is there still faith in me to reach the end?
I'm feeling doubt I'm losing faith
But giving up would cost me everything
So I'll stand in the pain and silence
And I'll speak to the dark night

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining
I believe in love even when I don't feel it
And I believe in God even when He is silent
And I, I believe

Though I can't see my stories ending
That doesn't mean the dark night has no end
It's only here that I find faith
And learn to trust the one who writes my days
So I'll stand in the pain and silence
And I'll speak to the dark night

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining
I believe in love even when I don't feel it
And I believe in God even when He is silent
And I, I believe
No dark can consume Light
No death greater than this life
We are not forgotten
Hope is found when we say
Even when He is silent

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining
I believe in love even when I don't feel it
And I believe in God even when He is silent
And I, I believe.

Here's My Life Lyrics – Barlow Girl

Once again I said my goodbyes
To those who I love most
My heart feels that familiar pain
As I long for home
'Cause this road is hard
When I feel so far

God I'm crying out tonight
'Cause I've given You my life
But I'm tired and I'm missing what's behind
So once more here's my life

On the day that You called my name
All that I knew changed
I found when I said yes that I'd never be the same
Though the call is hard
You are worth it all

God I'm crying out tonight
'Cause I've given You my life
But I'm tired and I'm missing what's behind
So once more

Even when the tears are falling
When I find I fear the calling
You remind me
Words You've spoken over my life
Promises I've yet to see
You comfort me

God I'm crying out tonight
'Cause I've given You my life
But I'm tired and I'm missing what's behind
So once more, here's my life

Keep Quiet Lyrics – Barlow Girl

All the things I've sacrificed
So that I could bring You to this world
I want them to see You in me
But Your name just keeps them far from me
So I'll keep quiet
Let's hope they see I'm different

Jesus, Jesus why's Your name's offensive?
Why are we so scared to tell this world You've saved us
When all of the hope of the world's in Your name
Why are we so scared to say
Oh Jesus

If I avoid to speak Your name
Tell me would You do the same to me
If relevance becomes my goal
Tell me will I lose You to its hold
But, if I keep quiet, they'll never see I'm different

Jesus, Jesus why's Your name's offensive?
Why are we so scared to tell this world You've saved us
When all of the hope of this world's in Your name
Why are we so scared to say
Oh Jesus

I'm sorry I cared about my name more than Yours
I'm so sorry how could I hide You anymore
But if I keep quiet
They'll never see I'm different

Jesus, Jesus why's Your name's offensive?
Why are we so scared to tell this world You've saved us
When all of the hope of the world's in Your name
Why are we so scared to say
Oh, Jesus

Million Voices Lyrics – Barlow Girl

Tell me who'd have thought that we would be so controversial
And stand against the normal
Are we too outspoken, loud, and messing up the comfortable?
Well we've been messed up also

But how can we be silent
When a fire burns inside us
'Cause we're a million strong and getting stronger still
They'll remember we were here
With a million voices breaking silence till
They'll remember we were here

We were made to start the riot, take on the impossible
And we will stay the giants
We are done with fake religion fighting now to find the movement
Won't stop till we find it

But how can we be silent
When a fire burns inside us
'Cause we're a million strong and getting stronger still
They'll remember we were here
With a million voices breaking silence till
They'll remember we were here
We're a million strong and getting stronger still
They'll remember we were here
With a million voices breaking silence till
They'll remember we were here

Sweet Revenge Lyrics – Barlow Girl

Did you see that I was hurt?
Did you know that you had left me crying there?
Now I'm holding all you words close till you feel this pain too
But you live on so unaware
While I thought somehow this hate would heal me
But this hate is never ending and it's only killing me
Oh sweet revenge you've lied again
I find I can't get free till I release this vengeance that I seek
Forgive you the only thing I want to live I'm ready to be free
Maybe you've been wounded too
Maybe all this is your self protection
All the hurts you thought were hidden
Are the one now hurting me
So who will make the pattern end?
I find I can't get free till I release this vengeance that I seek
Forgive you, the only thing I want to live I'm ready to
Break these chains
Won't see this through
'Cause setting you free means my freedom too
I find I can't get free till I release this vengeance that I seek
Forgive you the only thing I want to live I'm ready to be free

One More Round Lyrics – Barlow Girl

Round one wasn't what I thought it'd be
Round two I'm struggling to breath
3, 4, 5, 6, 7 times I wondered why I stepped inside this ring

I may be knocked down and bruised
But I'm here to tell you
That I may be knocked down but not for the count
1,2,3,4
So take me one more round
I'll just keep fighting
One more round
You're messing me up but I'm still here

One more round I'll come out swinging
One more round
I'm telling you now I'm not gonna lose it

It's so hard to get up off the floor again
But I know that victory is when
I'm pushing through the pain that tries to feed me lies that I won't reach the end
I may be bloodied and so bruised
But I'm here to tell you
That I may be knocked down but not for the count
1,2,3,4
So take me one more round I'll just keep fighting one more round
You're messing me up but I'm still here
One more round
I'll come out swinging
One more round

I'm telling you now I'm not gonna lose it
I am not defeated
Though you cannot see it
I have never won a battle on my own
I find strength in weakness
I find hope in believing
God is for me who can bring me down?
So take me one more round
I'll just keep fighting

One more round
You're messing me up but I'm still here
One more round
I'll come out swinging one more round
I'm telling you now I'm not gonna lose it here
I'm not gonna go down now
Try to bring me
I'll come out swinging

Take My Chances Lyrics – Barlow Girl

I've bowed out from this and can I say I'm sick
Now it's time for me to stand up and make you hear me
This world you rob innocence you never gave us a chance
We were born believing you had all the answers for me

Look out you will find out
That here I am so far from then so

I take my chances
I don't live for you
I'll say what I have to
I don't care I don't care
Fears are what I lose

If we don't speak, who will?
If we don't fight, we're still
Stuck without a voice and we are tired of being silenced

Look out you will find out
That here I am so far from then so

I take my chances
I don't live for you
I'll say what I have to
I don't care I don't care
Fears are what I lose

We are set apart
We've been chosen now
We are children of God
So what holds us back
What's holding us back

I take my chances
I don't live for you
I'll say what I have to
I don't care I don't care
Fears are what I lose

The Guy Song Lyrics – Barlow Girl

Where would we be today if no man ever had strength to believe
If no man had a vision farther than their eyes could ever see
They are the one's who paved the way
To show you how you have been made for more

This is your day, don't let them take it away yeah yeah
This is your day, don't let them take it, take it
This is your day, don't let them get in your way
This is your day, so come on, take it, take your day

This world distracts you, lies to you, and hopes to keep you from your call
But don't be fooled, cause don't you see that you can stand up to it all
You're unashamed, you're unafraid to
To give up your life to serve the One who's called you

This is your day, don't let them take it away yeah yeah
This is your day, don't let them take it, take it
This is your day, don't let them get in your way
This is your day, so come on, take it, take your day

I Don't Regret Lyrics – Barlow Girl

They're telling me they're concerned for the way I am living
That I'll miss it all why would I think that God is that trusting
I can't explain all the words He has spoken to my heart
Why'd I want him more

I don't regret choosing you
And I'm not ashamed
That it's You who holds my heart

Why do we think if we trust God too much will fail us
Nothing has come when I chose its that in me I'd trust
Separate me You have called out to follow You blindly
I won't fear You're leading me

I don't regret choosing You
And I'm not ashamed
That it's You who holds my heart

You have shown my ever wondering heart what love is
What on earth is more important than to have all of you

I don't regret choosing you
And I'm not ashamed
That it's You who holds my heart

"Another Journal Entry" (2005)

Grey Lyrics – Barlow Girl

Grey's my favorite color
Black and white has never been my thing
I'll take my drink lukewarm now
Hot and cold is not the thing for me

Absolutes are hidden
I've buried my convictions

[Chorus:]
I cannot be blind no more
Numb to what I'm living for
Help me stop this compromise that justifies these lies
I need Your passion in this life

I don't want to impose
Who really needs to know what I believe
Cause no one likes rockin' boats
And who would care to see the way I see

So give me the fire, yeah
God give me Your fire
And raise this life higher

Let Go Lyrics – Barlow Girl

Yeah I trust in You
I remember times You led me
This time it's bigger now
And I'm afraid You'll let me down

But how can I be certain?
Will You prove Yourself again?

[Chorus:]
'Cause I'm about to let go
And live what I believe
I can't do a thing now
But trust that You'll catch me
When I let go
When I let go

What is this doubt in me
Convincing me to fear the unknown
When all along You've shown
Your plans are better than my own

And I know I won't make it
If I do this all alone

I Need You To Love Me Lyrics – Barlow Girl

Why, why are You still here with me
Didn't You see what I've done?
In my shame I want to run and hide myself
But it's here I see the truth
I don't deserve You

[Chorus:]
But I need You to love me, and I
I won't keep my heart from You this time
And I'll stop this pretending that I can
Somehow deserve what I already have
I need You to love me

I, I have wasted so much time
Pushing You away from me
I just never saw how You could cherish me
'Cause You're a God who has all things
And still You want me

Your love makes me forget what I have been
Your love makes me see who I really am
Your love makes me forget what I have been

Enough Lyrics – Barlow Girl

All of You is more than enough for
All of me for every thirst and every need
You satisfy me with Your love
And all I have in You
Is more than enough

You are my supply
My breath of life
Still more awesome than I know
You are my reward
Worth living for
Still more awesome than I know

You're my sacrifice of greatest price
Still more awesome than I know
You're my coming King You're everything
Still more awesome than I know

Porcelain Heart Lyrics – Barlow Girl

Broken heart one more time
Pick yourself up, why even cry
Broken pieces in your hands
Wonder how you'll make it whole

[Chorus:]
You know, you pray
This can't be the way
You cry, you say
Something's gotta change
And mend this porcelain heart of mine

Someone said "A broken heart
Would sting at first then make you stronger"
You wonder why this pain remains
Were hearts made whole just to break

[Chorus]

Creator only You take brokenness
And create it into beauty once again

[Chorus]

Take Me Away Lyrics – Barlow Girl

Pushing my way through these crowded streets
Trying not to be swept away
Fighting just to keep this crowd from
Hiding You another day

So maybe this time I'll find You
And maybe this time I'll push through
To see You today, today

[Chorus:]
Won't You take me away
Won't You take me away
'Cause I need some time to get away
Where only You could ever
Take me away, away, away
Too many days I've been distracted
Watched these crowds push You away
I'm so tired of feeling empty
Without You I waste these days

So maybe this time I'll find You
Just don't stop calling me to You
And I'll find my way today

Psalm 73 (My God's Enough) Lyrics – Barlow Girl (feat. Todd Agnew)

I've had enough of living life for only me
And reaching just for the things that keep destroying me
So sick of envying the lives of so many I see
Somehow believing that they have what I need

[Chorus:]
My God's enough for me
This world has nothing I need
In this whole life I've seen
My God's enough, enough for me
I can't explain why I suffer though I live for You
Those who deny You they have it better than I do
Cover my eyes now so that my heart can finally see
That in the end only You mean anything

Who have I in heaven but You
Nothing I desire but You
My heart may fail but not You
You are mine foreve

5 Minutes Of Fame Lyrics – Barlow Girl

"5 Minutes Of Fame"

It was a common story, yeah who cares that I changed?
Why are people freaking out?
Maybe I gave in more than I should, maybe I sold out
But the truth was I was really getting nowhere until I woke up and found
That morals can't take you up to the top your standards pull you down

[Chorus:]
Was it worth it what I gave away
For five minutes of fame
Minutes over no one knows my name
Or my minute of fame

I always said the thing that meant the most to me was my very integrity
Who would have thought I'd ever trade it all for popularity
'Cause the truth is though I've made it to the top I'm anything but satisfied
I gave up the only thing that mattered for this empty life

This time I'm saying no
This world will know what I believe in
I've lost enough to know
That life's too short to waste it

Thoughts Of You Lyrics – Barlow Girl

Thoughts of You and how You changed me
Fill my mind
Without You where would I be

So even though I've tried to express my thanks
It never comes out how I hoped
I want to say so much more so with these simple words
I'll try

[Chorus:]
I love You
My heart is Yours, only Yours
I long to give You all of me
My everything, my everything

God I never could repay You
You gave everything
Without You where would I be

You still loved me even when I
Pushed You away
You stood there and waited
Till the day I'd return

No One Like You Lyrics – Barlow Girl

You are more beautiful than anyone ever
Everyday You're the same You never change no never

You are more beautiful than anyone ever
Everyday You're the same You never change no never
And how can I ever deny the love of my Savior
You are to me everything all I need forever

How could you be so good?

[Chorus:]
There is no one like You
There has never ever been anyone like You

Everywhere You are there earth or air surrounding
I'm not alone the heavens sing along
My God You're so astounding
How could You be so good to me
Eternally I believe that

How could You be so good to me
How could You be so good to me
We're not alone so sing along
We're not alone so sing along
Sing along, sing along

"Barlow Girl" (2004)


On My Own Lyrics – Barlow Girl

I can't believe that I"m here in this place again
How did I manage to mess up one more time?
This pattern seems to be the story of my life
Should have learned this lesson by the thousandth time

'Cause I promise myself I wouldn't fall
But here I've fallen
I guess I'm not as strong as I thought
All I can do is cry to You

Oh God You have to save me
You're my last and only hope
All my right answers fail me
I can't seem to make it on my own

I always thought that I would be strong enough
What made all of them fall couldn't take me down
Yeah, did I think that I was above it all
I have learned that pride comes before the fall

I can't promise that I won't fall
'Cause here I've fallen
I know I'm not as strong as I thought
All I can do is cry to You

Pedestal Lyrics – Barlow Girl

You're the coolest person
That I have ever seen
So perfect with your pretty face
On the TV screen

You're a god I know it
How you stand abouve them all
You are my perfect person
Man I"d hate to see you fall

I want someone to believe in
Yeah well don't we all?
'Cause in this life of imperfection Meed someone who won't fall
You got it, you got it, you got it all

Got a Magazine to day
That was full of you
Shocked to read the words they said
Tell me they're not true

Add you to my fallen list
One more has hit the ground
The fault was mine
Held you too high
Your only what was down

I can't deny this need inside
I have to find the perfect one
But I wonder if behind my need
There might be a reason?

Is my life just one big searching
Fot the one I can adore?
It never works
And I'm just left here wanting more

Could it be this hunger's there
To drive me to the One
Who's worthy of all worship
Would my searching then be done?

Never Alone Lyrics – Barlow Girl

I waited for you today
But you didn't show
No no no
I needed You today
So where did You go?
You told me to call
Said You'd be there
And though I haven't seen You
Are You still there?

[Chorus:]
I cried out with no reply
And I can't feel You by my side
So I'll hold tight to what I know
You're here and I"m never alone

And though I cannot see You
And I can't explain why
Such a deep, deep reassurance
You've placed in my life

We cannot separate
'Cause You're part of me
And though You're invisible
I'll trust the unseen

[Chorus]

We cannot separate
You're part of me
And though You're invisible
I'll trust the unseen

[Chorus]

Harder Than The First Time Lyrics – Barlow Girl

I walked with you
Just like we've done for so long
You seem so near
But even that's become so common It's not just You, just been together so long
That I thought I knew everything about You
But today I saw
Did You open up my eyes?
'Cause I feel like I've just seen You for the first time

I didn't see You
But God I want to
You've come alive
And I think I've fallen harder than the first time

Was I so blind?
How did I not see You?
Yet in that time You never left my side
So far all my life I will live to know You
So here I am, I'll take Your hand

I see Your face
I feel You close
The love You've always shown me
Won't miss it now can't waste a day
Jesus I'm Yours completely

You Led Me Lyrics – Barlow Girl

Good Morning the night is over and gone
I thought once this dark would last for so long

Feel the sunlight on my face
You have brought me through this place

Jesus, Jesus You found me
Through the long night you led me
You set me free

Do you see just what You've done in my life?
You gave me more than I hoped for now I

Mirror Lyrics – Barlow Girl

Mirror, Mirror on the wall, Have I got it?
'Cause Mirror you've always told me who I am
I'm finding it's not easy to be perfect
So sorry you won't define me
Sorry you don't own me

Who are you to tell me
That I'm less than what I should be?
Who are you? Who are you?
I don't need to listen
To the list of things I should do
I won't try, I won't try

Mirror I am seeing a new reflection
I'm looking into the eyes
of He who made me
And to Him I have beauty beyond compare
I know He defines me (Yeah)

Who are you tell me
that I'm less than what I should be
Who are you?
Who are you? (Yeah)
I don't need to listen
To the list of things I should do
I won't try, no, I won't try

You don't define me (You don't define me) [x4]

Who are you to tell me
That I'm less than what I should be
Who are you?
Who are you?
Yeah!
I don't need to listen
To the list of things I should do
I won't try, no, I won't try
Yeah

Who are you to tell me
That I'm less than what I should be
Who are you?
Who are you?
Yeah
I don't need to listen
To the list of things I should do
I won't try, no, I won't try

Superstar Lyrics – Barlow Girl

Well I spent my life dreaming super dreams
But I hate to wake 'cause it's then I see
That I'm nothing more than a dreamer
Superstar in my dreams I'm a dreamer

See the lights of stardom were calling me
Because only then someone I would be
So my goal in life was to get there
Never satisfied

I wanna be a star
But is that all I'm really here for?
And if I'm not a star will that be okay?
Could I still be someone?

Guess I"m scared to wake from these super dreams
Scared to live the life that's been waiting for me
What would life be like with no bright lights?
Tell me who I'd be with no spotlight

God You'll have to say who I really am
'Cause I cannot live in this perfect dreamland
But I've heard your dreams might be better
And I hope somehow

A superstar I may never be
And that is just a reality
Why can't we be God's superstars?

Clothes Lyrics – Barlow Girl

Clothes aren't what they used to be
They don't seem to fit you and me anymore
Modesty is out the door
Flaunting what we've got and more is in
Yeah it's in

They're saying
Don't ask why just wear what we say
You'll look like a model if you'll only obey
To get the attention, just do what we say

Pay so much for clothes so small
Was that shirt made for me or my doll?
Is this all I get?
I looked so hot but caught a cold
I was doing just what I was told
To fit in

We're saying let's ask why
Don't wear what they say
Don't want to be a model
They can't eat anyway
That kind of attention will fade with the day
So I'll stand up and say

Clothes that fit are fine
Won't show whats mine
Don't change my mind
I'll be fine

She Walked Away Lyrics – Barlow Girl

She couldn't take one more day
Home was more her prison now
Independence called out
She had to get it

A fight was all she needed
To give her reason
She slammed the door with no goodbye
And knew that it was time

Now she's driving too fast
She didn't care to glance behind
And through her tears she laughed
It's time to kiss the past goodbye

I'm finally on my own
Don't try to tell me no
There's so much more for me
Just watch what I will be

She walked away
Couldn't say why she was leaving
She walked away
She left all she had believed in
She walked away

Not a day goes by
For the one she's left behind
They're always asking why
And thoughts of her consume their mind

God please let her know
The love we tried to show
We'd promise anything
If you'd just bring her home

Tell her we love her
Tell her she's wanted
One more thing God
Tell her please come home
Please come home

The choice is yours alone now
Tell me how this story ends

[spoken:]
While the son was still a long way off
His father saw him, and felt compassion for him
and ran and embraced him and kissed him
"Let us celebrate for this child of mine was dead
and he has come back to life,
He was lost and now he is found"
and they began to celebrate
[Luke 15:20 and 24]

Average Girl Lyrics – Barlow Girl

So what I'm not your average girl
I don't meet the standards of this world
Chasing after boys is not my thing
See I'm waiting for a wedding ring

No more dating
I'm just waiting
Like sleeping beauty
My prince will come for me
No more dating I'm just waiting
'Cause God is writing my love story

Boys are bad that's certainly not true
'Cause God's preparing one for you
If you get tired waiting till he comes
Gods arms are the perfect place to run

Sleep that's the only thing
For me 'cause when I sleep Gods
Preparing one for me

Surrender lyrics - barlow girl

My hands hold safly to my dreams
Clutching tightly not one has fallen
So many years I've shaped each one
Reflecting my heart showing who I am
Now you're asking me to show
What I'm holding oh so tightly
Can't open my hands can't let go
Does it matter?
Should I show you?
Can't you let me go?

Surrender, surrender you whisper gently
You say I will be free
I know but can't you see?
My dreams are me. My dreams are me

You say you have a plan for me
And that you want the best for my life
Told me the world had yet to see
What you can do with one
That's committed to Your calling
I know of course what I should do
That I can't hold these dreams forever
If I give them now to You
Will You take them away forever?
Or can I dream again?
