Verse 1

I'm looking for more than things just to kill time

And then wondering where the day went

I want to look back on all of my days

Knowing they were all well spent



Numb and bored don't work anymore

I'm looking for a way to be whole

So take me from this tiredness Lord

And make me a living soul


Verse 2

I'm done going to the finish line

Trying just to make it there

I want to make the most of all my time

And leave nothing left to spare



Verse 3

So I'll work towards things worth all I am

And do more than just try to survive

I want to live for you with all I have

Knowing it's you that can make me alive

O Lord won't you make me alive

I want to be alive


The author's comments:

I wrote this because I wanted to focus on things worth my time in my life and I want those things to focus around my Christian faith. So this is my prayer that God help me find that.
