Out of Body Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Who Am I

White lights and desperation
Hard times and conversation
No one should ever love me like you do
Sometimes my bad decisions
Define my false suspicions
No one should ever love me like you do

While I'm on this road you take my hand
Somehow you really love who I really am
I push you away, still you won't let go
You grow your roses on my barren soul

Who am I, who am I, who am I
To be loved by you
Who am I, who am I, who am I
To be loved by you
Who am I, who am I, who am I
To be loved by you
Who am I, who am I, who am I

Last night, confidence was shaken
My wounds and my past was saying
No one should ever love me like you do

While I'm on this road you take my hand
Somehow you really love who I really am
I push you away, still you won't let go
You grow your roses on my barren soul

Who am I, who am I, who am I
To be loved by you
Who am I, who am I, who am I
To be loved by you
Who am I, who am I, who am I
To be loved by you
Who am I, who am I, who am I

The way I push you through it, what you had to see
I'm a train wreck, I'm a mess, you see the best
And the worst in me
Still I can't imagine that I've learned your trust
I don't understand where your love comes from

Who am I, who am I, who am I
To be loved by you
Who am I, who am I, who am I
To be loved by you
Who am I, who am I, who am I
To be loved by you
Who am I, who am I, who am I
To be loved by you

Who am I, who am I, who am I
To be loved by you
Who am I, who am I, who am I
To be loved by you
Who am I, who am I, who am I
To be loved by you
Who am I, who am I, who am I
To be loved by you

Out of Body

Take me out of my body
Take me out of my mind
I wanna know how you made me
Give me your mystical eye

I wanna see my world in a new light
I wanna drift through the fields where the moonlight's bright
I wanna lose myself in the full of light
I wanna know how it looks from the other side

Out of my body
Out of my body
Take me out, take me, won't you take me out
Out of my body
Take me out, take me, won't you take me out
Out of body

I wanna see my reflection
See your work in the lines
I wanna lose my aggression
I wanna lose track of time

Far beyond the vanity
Floating over everything
I can see the map I took to get here
Fear in God and shame and grief
It's all connected history
Stuck inside the tunnels of our yesteryears

Bottom of a Heartbreak

Gonna tear it down
All my childhood gates
Gonna wake up to a brand new day
I don't need another love to make me feel okay
I just need a lot of time and a little space

Now I'm shaking in my bones
It's crazy how my body knows

There's nowhere to go
There's nothing to say
I'm feeling trapped with no escape
I wanna be well
I wish I could change
There's nowhere to hide
Where you feel safe
At the bottom of a heartbreak
At the bottom of a heartbreak

It's that familiar pain staring in my face
It's a different ghost, but it haunts the same
Oh, I can't move on, no looking back
I gotta learn to love right where I'm at

Now I'm shaking in my bones
It's crazy how my body knows

There's nowhere to go
There's nothing to say
I'm feeling trapped with no escape
I wanna be well
I wish I could change
There's nowhere to hide
Where you feel safe
At the bottom of a heartbreak
At the bottom of a heartbreak

Sometimes I think that if I climb that hill
I wouldn't need to come down
Sometimes it's so high that we cannot feel
We'll never love all around
Yeah...

There's nowhere to go
There's nothing to say
I'm feeling trapped with no escape
I wanna be well
I wish I could change
There's nowhere to hide
Where you feel safe
At the bottom of a heartbreak
At the bottom of a heartbreak

Banks

I wanna be there when the voices in your head
Are loud enough to make you lose your mind
Just the same when you're dominating the day
I wanna be the one who's by your side
You know my love is not the jealous type
It doesn't matter if we win or lose
Oh, I could stay or I could come no matter where you're coming from
I can be the one to let you choose

(Oh) I wanna hold you close but never hold you back
Just like the banks to the river
(Oh) And if you ever feel like you are not enough
I'm gonna break all your mirrors
(Oh) I wanna be there when the darkness closes in
To make the truth a little clearer
(Oh) I wanna hold you close but never hold you back
I'll be the banks for your river

(Oh, ooh) I'll be the banks for your river
(Oh, ooh) I'll be the banks for your river

You are beautiful and wild at every turn
Who am I to take control of that
But everybody needs a voice they can follow
When the water and the winds get bad

You know my love is not the jealous type
And it don't matter if we win or lose
Oh, I could push or I could pull
No matter what you're trying to do
As long as I can flow along with you

(Oh) I wanna hold you close but never hold you back
Just like the banks to the river
(Oh) And if you ever feel like you are not enough
I'm gonna break all your mirrors
(Oh) I wanna be there when the darkness closes in
To make the truth a little clearer
(Oh) I wanna hold you close but never hold you back
I'll be the banks for your river

(Oh, ooh) I'll be the banks for your river
(Oh, ooh) I'll be the banks for your river

Baby, I ain't saying that you need my help
But you don't have to do it all by yourself
So baby when the current gets strong
And you need somewhere to rest your bones
I wanna be there for you
I wanna be strong for you

(Oh) I wanna hold you close but never hold you back
Just like the banks to the river
(Oh) And if you ever feel like you are not enough
I'm gonna break all your mirrors
(Oh) I wanna be there when the darkness closes in
To make the truth a little clearer
(Oh) I wanna hold you close but never hold you back
I'll be the banks for your river

(Oh) I wanna hold you close but never hold you back
(I'll be the banks for your river)
(Oh) And if you ever feel like you are not enough
(I'll be the banks for your river)
(Oh) I wanna be there when the darkness closes in
To make the truth a little clearer
(Oh) I wanna hold you close but never hold you back
I'll be the banks for your river

Child Again

Yeah, I know too much
I think I know my way around
Smart to feel a heartbreak now
Too old let my safeguards down
Where'd the wonder go?
Trading magic for a measured hope
Traded dreaming for a worn out home
Tired of being in control

In the cosmic light
In the by and by
I wanna see your heart
Through my younger eyes
I wanna hear your voice
In the rain and wind
I wanna know it's safe to be
A child again

Woo
Woo
Woo

I know that gettin' hurt
Is really how redemption works
My ego is a ball and chain
My instincts only make it worse
In the mornin' light
I don't want to run from pain
You know I can't afford to cheapen grace
I know that pain means my soul's awake

In the cosmic light
In the by and by
I wanna see your heart
Through my younger eyes
I wanna hear your voice
In the rain and wind
I wanna know it's safe to be
A child again

Woo
Woo
Woo

Let my past mean nothin'
Make it powerless
I am free like a river
I am free like a river
You're my hope unbroken
You're my innocence
I am free like a river
I'm a child again
Let my past mean nothin'
Make it powerless
I am free like a river
I am free like a river
You're my hope unbroken
You're my innocence
I am free like a river
I'm a child again

In the cosmic light
In the by and by
I wanna see your heart
Through my younger eyes
I wanna hear your voice
In the rain and wind
I wanna know it's safe to be
A child again

Ooh
Ooh
Ooh

Mercy's Shore

My arms are tired and weary
These wounds are on full display
I've tried every door in the hallway
There's just nowhere that I feel safe

I see the light but never find the surface
I don't know if I can swim no more
White knuckles and wild horses
One day we'll wash up on mercy's shore
One day we'll wash up on mercy's shore
(Ooh oooh oooh oooh)

I'm lost in the waves that crush me
They bring discovery where darkness hides
Just over the ridge in front of you
Another mountain that you'll have to climb

I see the light but never find the surface
I don't know if I can swim no more
White knuckles and wild horses
One day we'll wash up on mercy's shore
One day we'll wash up on mercy's shore
(Oh woah woah woah)

We're a child in the car asleep
In the driveway at night
Our mother's gonna slowly sneak
Our body inside
We can rest in the arms of trust
There's no way that we can say
We've earned our way into light
All we have to do to is stay

I see the light but never find the surface
I don't know if I can swim no more
White knuckles and wild horses
One day we'll wash up on mercy's shore
One day we'll wash up on mercy's shore
(Oh wo-oah wo-oah wo-oah)
(Oh wo-oah wo-oah wo-oah)

I've been battling a broken heart
Everybody knows I'm torn apart
Since I was eight years old and I thought that
God was a girl in my school
If we can wind up on a sandy beach
Breathin' air that only death can reach
And singing songs that only heaven leaves
It's okay with me
And God is wanting us to make believe
But knowing something is only a dream
Like the absolutes and the in-between
Are out of line, sometimes, intertwined, behind
A mind, in line, and fights that only fools are still trying to fight

Hang On

First touch of summer, she's got your t-shirt on
Sun's going down, schools out, stars are coming on
You can rewind it, but you can't ever feel like you do tonight
Make a movie in your mind, but don't rush it
Boy, you're about to see the light

Hang on to the light in your eyes and the feeling
Hang on to your love drunk original reason
Hang on to the small town you love but you're leaving
Oh you won't be a fool for so long
So hang on

If you listen to the voices inside they won't do you wrong
You can look back over your shoulder, yeah, but don't look too long
It takes time to realize
That your life's gonna pass you by

So hang on to the light in your eyes and the feeling
Hang on to your love drunk original reason
So hang on to the small town you love but you're leaving
'Cause you won't be a fool for so long

Oh, these things they take time
And all these things take time, these things they take time
And all these things I've learned, it's never a straight line
'Cause all these things take time, these things they take time

So hang on to the light in your eyes and the feeling
Hang on to your love drunk original reason
'Cause all these things take time, these things they take time
And all these things I've learned, it's never a straight line

So hang on to the light in your eyes and the feeling
So hang on to your love drunk original reason
So hang on to the small town you love but you're leaving
Oh you won't be a fool for so long
So hang on

(All these things they take time)
Hang on
(All these things they take time)
Hang on
(All these things they take time)

Riding High

Bad decisions, they don't feel bad at the time
Consequences, they don't always fit the crime
We might die trying, babe, we're gonna go out riding high

Going down a little wild and reckless
Know I'd do it over again
I know you got a bit of hesitation
Throwin' cares to the wind
We might die trying, babe, we're gonna go out riding high

I know you're dealing with your own temptation
Baby, I've been dealing with mine
But we've been working for a long vacation
Baby, we can go tonight
We might die trying, babe, we're gonna go out riding high

Bad decisions, they don't feel bad at the time
Consequences, they don't always fit the crime
We might die trying, babe, we're gonna go out riding high
We might die trying, babe, we're gonna go out riding high

I've been living like a firework breaking the sky
But never hitting the ground
I've been living like a jet plane watching me go
Before you hear the sound
We might die trying, babe, we gonna, we gonna, we gonna go out high

Bad decisions, they don't feel bad at the time
Consequences, they don't always fit the crime
We might die trying, babe, we're gonna go out riding high
We might die trying, babe, we gonna, we gonna, we gonna go out high

I've been living on the tip of my tongue
I've been living by the roll of the dice
I've been thinking if it's gonna be done, then it's gonna be done tonight
We might die trying, babe, we're gonna go out riding high
We might die trying, babe, we're gonna go out riding high

Survival

[Featuring Drew & Ellie Holcomb]

[Bear Rinehart]
I got the devil on my throat
I got blood on my hands
The ones that I love are in danger
I'm a fallen man
But I found me a river
And it washes me clean
I know that I'm drownin' for tryin'
But I'll never leave

[Bear Rinehart]
I know that I'm found
And I can't keep from hidin'
Don't have a choice
But I get stuck decidin'
I am a man in need of
A constant revival
Jesus, come quickly
I need You for my survival

[Drew Holcomb]
Got a lock on my soul
I'll never let You in
Got the hounds of Hell chasin'
My time's runnin' thin
But I found me a rhythm
And it breaks down my gates
Sometimes it's hard to just listen
But I'm makin' my case

[Bear Rinehart]
Know that I'm found
I can't keep from hidin'
Don't have a choice (Choice)
But I get stuck decidin'
I am a man in need of
A constant revival
Jesus, come quickly
I need You for my survival

[Bear Rinehard, Ellie Holcomb, Together & Chorus]
Oo-oo-ooh, oo-oo-ooh, oo-oo-ooh
Oo-oo-ooh, oo-oo-ooh, oo-oo-ooh
Like flowers need sunlight
Oo-oo-ooh
Oceans need high tide
Oo-oo-ooh
Like men need a long life
Oo-oo-ooh
To know that they ain't right
Like lions need their pride
Oo-oo-ooh
It's a matter of your time
Oo-oo-ooh
I need you if I wanna survive
Oo-oo-ooh

[Bear Rinehard & Ellie Holcomb, Together]
I know that I'm found (Fou-ound)
And I can't keep from hiding
Don't have a choice
But I get stuck deciding
I am a man in need of
A constant revival
Jesus come quickly
I need you for my survival

Seasons

We can't decide if we are fallen
Because every single call is a chance
To realize we're dependent
On the fate of our circumstance
We've been living minute to minute
We've been holding on to every breath
Somehow our hearts are still in it
But our innocence has left

We're in for nasty weather
And I'll ride it out with you
We won't be riding highs and lows
Like tides of ocean blue
We won't be here forever
Just a moment then we're through
We can't be shifting with the sands
Like seasons always do
Like seasons always do

Everything we said was a reason
For us to pick up our things and go
But even when we climbed up the mountain
We knew that we had nowhere to go

I was in, I was in perpetual anticipation
I never knew what was worse
The evil I, the evil I had spent my time
Reliving all of the worrying that made it hurt
I am done, I am done with waiting on the creek to rise
Cause there's more to life, there's more to life
There's more to life

Alive

Ooh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Ooh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Flashes of doubt they grow into a rage
Locked out the truth, they keep your dreams at bay
Don't stand there waitin' for the time to come
Come on, come on, catch me, we got miles to run

We are alive our skin is leaving these bones
Leaving these bones
Fire in the wind we're burnin' out of control
We are the children chasin' wondrous thrills
Wondrous thrills
Chasin' a vision baby like we're runnin' downhill, oh

Ooh yeah, yeah
Oh, runnin' down, yeah, yeah
Ooh yeah, yeah
Hey, hey runnin' down, yeah, yeah

We tear these curtains open, feel the light
Swim to the surface let our lungs ignite
Slip past the guards before they raise the guns
Come on, come on, catch me, we got miles to run

[Bear Rinehart, Backing]
We are alive our skin is leaving these bones
Leaving these bones
Fire in the wind we're burnin' out of control
We are the children chasin' wondrous thrills
Wondrous thrills
Chasin' a vision baby like we're runnin' downhill, hey

Ooh yeah, yeah
Oh, runnin' down, yeah, yeah
Ooh yeah, yeah
Hey, hey runnin' down, yeah, yeah
Hey hey

O-oh
Someday this body's gonna come to rest
But not 'til the very last beat of my chest (O-oh)
These hills take longer than we think to get down
So I'll get used to living with my feet off the ground

Runnin' downhill
We are alive our skin is leaving these bones
Leaving these bones
Fire in the wind we're burnin' out of control
We are the children chasin' wondrous thrills
Wondrous thrills
Chasin' a vision baby like we're runnin' downhill, oh

Ooh yeah yeah, yeah yeah, ooh yeah
Oh, Runnin' down
Runnin' down hill
Ooh yeah yeah, yeah yeah, ooh yeah
Runnin' down hill
Runnin' down, runnin' down, runnin' down
Ooh yeah yeah, yeah yeah, ooh yeah
Runnin' down hill
Ooh yeah yeah, yeah yeah, ooh yeah
Runnin'
