  • Lecrae - Breathing to Death Share on FacebookPrint it
It's like I'm tired of life
Lord i'm wrong why I can't get right
And when it's dark why I can't get light
Eh, why it can't be light
It's so heavy why my sin won't let me see the end
Come get me, please come get me
My thoughts my mind
My ways all evil
I'm s'posed to be your people I'm s'posed to see your sequel
I said I'll never leave you
But I'm so left I ain't right Lord I'm sleeping with death
Man, I am cheating with death
Am I deaf it's like I don't hear you
I say that I'm a Christian but it's like I don't fear you
I'm on a selfish island and I am nowhere near you
God I really need you even tho I don't appear to
I'm drinking outta broken cistern that could never hold water and I'm gonna get burned
Tho I try I never satisfy or quench this yearn
I hear you calling but it's like a fight for me to just turn
Lord I deserve to burn

Hook: Repeat 2x
Help me Lord before there's no time left
I ain't living I'm just breathing to death (echo)

Your ways are perfect and they lead me to rest
Mine are evil and they lead me to death

I'm feelin' schizophrenic
Maybe I ain't saved cause I gotta get high just to block out all the pain
Seen death, seen hurt seen a whole lotta thangs
Instead of running from it I'm running away from change
It's like I'm outside in the ice cold weather
The rains coming down and I keep getting wetter
I know I'm getting sick and I could die any second
But still I refuse to let your truths make me better
I'd rather eat flies and maggots instead of bread
And it's killing me slow but I can't get it through my head
You were stabbed you were murdered
And for me is why you bled
But I spit on your bloody face as If I never cared
And Lord how dare I compare my pain
Your Father turned His back
And You were left to hang
I don't know why You did it that I can't explain
How can You love this sinner whose desecrated Your name
Lord I deserve the flames

Hook: 2x

I know I tell lies
I know I do dirt
Apart from You I'm nothing but You can give me worth
I don't know if I know You
But still I know I should
I know these days are evil and only You are good
I've come to this conclusion I would like to change
Cause all the world's money and fame cannot sustain
I know that I should turn but that's the hardest thang
Cause do I really feel that havin' Jesus is my gain
The world is so tempting
satan is a beast
he hypnotizes my eyes to say the least
But Jesus be my treasure to know You is to live
And I am here dying trying everything there is
All I need here is You
Help me turn away from sin
Lord give me grace to turn away and the fear not to give in
I know that I'm not perfect but I could rest in Him
I know I don't deserve it but still I'll take Your hand
Lord let me take Your hand

Hook: 2x

i love this song its my favorite song on the cd. my favorite part and it really opens my eyes when he says "And Lord how dare i compare my pain Your Father turned His back and You were left to hang i dont know why You did that i cant explain how can You love the sinner whose desecrated Your name Lord i deserve the flames" that part really reminds what Jesus went through for me to live and not have to pay the penalty for sin that amazes me and i pray thanking God for that everyday
