Restore

From VOX BOX
From VOX BOX

There’s nothing new
That we haven’t used
Under this sun
It feels as though
All the good I could do
Has already been done

Tell me now that I am wrong
Tell me that there’s something more to life
Tell me it’s okay to dream, dream

Restore, repair, re-purpose
Break away what’s dead and worthless
Receive repeat repentance
From a soul in need

So tell me now
Can we find a way out
Of these circuits we spin?
There’s nothing but
This terminal rut
That I find myself in

Tell me now that I’ve been heard
Tell me there’s a purpose to this pain
Tell me I’ve done nothing wrong, nothing wrong

[Chorus]

Teaching me the seasons change
Keeping me in chains to bless these walls
Reassuring me of this…

You will
Restore, repair, re-purpose
Break away what’s dead and worthless
Receive repeat repentance
From a soul in need
You will
Revive my heart’s desire,
These dying embers with new fire
(You are) Waiting to free your servant,
Hanging on your word…
