I’ve got voices in my head and they are so strong
And I’m getting sick of this, oh Lord how long
Will I be haunted by the fear that I believe
My hands like locks on cages
Of these dreams I can’t set free

But if I let these dreams die
If I lay down all my wounded pride
If I let these dreams die
Will I find that letting go lets me come alive

So empty my hands, fill up my heart
Capture my mind with You
Oh empty my hands, fill up my heart
Capture my mind with You
With You, with You Lord

Cause these voices speak instead, what’s right is wrong
And I’m giving into them, oh please Lord how long
Will I be held captive by the lies that I believe
My heart’s in constant chaos and it keeps me so deceived

But if I let these dreams die
If I could just lay down my dark desire
Cause if I let these dreams die
will I find You brought me back to life

Cause my mind is like a building burning down
I need Your grace to keep me, well keep me from the ground
My heart is just a prisoner of war
A slave to what it wants and to what I’m fighting for
So won’t You

With You, with You
I need You now
I need You now Lord, with You
With You
I need You now Lord
