Riding along, thought I was on my way I ran for the sunset, then reached for each new day Proclaiming all my love so very loud and clear Now I mumble to no one near, "my old ways finally found me here" A good man is what I want to be A bad man still lives inside of me And how can my depravity Give me what I need to be free? Then I thought myself further down into the darkness Finally realized I'm capable of being heartless I just want to wake up clean, Follow Jesus the Nazarene, and start doing what I mean A good man is what I want to be A bad man still lives inside of me And how can my depravity Give me what I need to be free? The ones in the clean white coats say, "live it up, this is all she wrote" The ones in the tall black hats say, "we've got the money to get behind that" The ones in the rose sunglasses say, "yeah man, it all just passes" I guess I'm left here holding this bag, the only one who's got sin to drag A good man is what I want to be A bad man still lives inside of me And how can my depravity Give me what I need to be free?

I took off running to clear my head All out of breath, stop thinking that I'm dead Out of the rocking chair, not far from home It's time to wander again, it's time to roam Sometimes I'd open the door, then sit and stare Trapped by depression, "man, it sure looks nice out there" But now I'm walking, catching my breath Ready to run again, 'til I've got nothing left This is not how it's going to end Here we are and here we go, my friend This is not how it's going to end This is not how it's going to end I want to let go and feel those Lasting Arms Pulling me closer, away from all alarms I keep on stumbling, watching the clock Forgetting all about the door that opens when I knock Thankful I'm off the hook, safe to confide No longer just to look, but ready for the ride Now back to letting go, now to stop wasting time No longer forced to live like the one whose done the crime This is not how it's going to end Here we are and here we go, my friend This is not how it's going to end This is not how it's going to end

I saw a ghost look back from the mirror Then I looked away, tapped by the whispers of a lonely night I heard the steps of death grow nearer No longer finding rest in any place I thought I might I don't know if I can go back home any more I don't know if my heart, my mind, my soul knows home anymore Living like I did not walk this high wire Thought I could depend on those who had all the confidence But now that I look down I see wildfire So many call my name, but so few make any sense I don't know if I can go back home any more I don't know if my heart, my mind, my soul knows home anymore Leaning on the everlasting arms, no alarms with The Everlasting Leaning on the everlasting arms, no alarms with The Everlasting Leaning on the everlasting arms, no alarms with The Everlasting Leaning on the everlasting arms, no alarms with The Everlasting I don't know if I can go back home any more I don't know if my heart, my mind, my soul knows home anymore
