Lost The Sky Again

(Steve singing)
Like a criminal guilty on all counts
Rattling his cage with every ounce
Of resolve he never had
I was convicted
Then I took the pardon and the walls came down
But I must like it here, 'cause I keep hanging around
For a better suit, and an escort
And a winning lottery ticket

(Newsboys singing)
First we waited for miracles
Then we needed a sign
Now we're here to confess we've wasted the time
But I know, I know, I know, I know that
Every blade
Will wither and fade
As the old man dies again
Seasons pass
We're clinging to grass
'Cause we've lost the sky again

(Steve singing)
Like a woman trying to give birth
She strains, she labors, she's not sure if it's worth
The suffering, and she wonders
'How long?'
When I first heard the rumor you were coming back
I confess my impatience, I guess I lost track
Of what I'm to persevere for
Of the reason you put me here for

(Newsboys singing)
Remember when it was any day now
Never dreamed we were wrong
Now we're shaking our heads,
Wondering 'how long?'
But I know, I know, I know, I know that
Every blade...

I feel a moment of your perfect love
I catch a glimmer of your sweet grace
But it only makes me long for the day
When I look full in your face

Every Blade...
