Come Alive

come alive
face over heels you fell into disaster
ever since then you're only running faster
everyone knows you'll never outrun yourself

still, everyone tries in one way or another
cause we've all got some tracks we'd like to cover
i wonder if it's time we all face the truth?

and the truth is, our mistakes do not define us.
the truth is, shame doesn't have to bind us.
the truth is, the light will always find us.
and dare us to come alive.
dare us to come alive.

what if we trusted all that we believe in
what if we moved from fear and into freedom
what if in freedom we could forgive ourselves?

and the truth is, our mistakes do not define us.
the truth is, shame doesn't have to bind us.
the truth is, the light will always find us.
and dare us to come alive.
dare us to come alive.

Caitlyn Smith has a new album out. She is an independent musician. She sang at the Church of the Open Door which I attend regularly.
If you believe in the truth and the truth has set you free,
give a listen to the song "Come Alive"
Grace is in the ears that hear.
