"Something's Gotta Change" lyrics - DAVID PHELPS

"Something's Gotta Change"
(Greg Bieck / David Phelps)

I used to ride my bike down the street three miles
And no one ever thought about it twice
'Cause everybody looked out for everybody else.
I was never ever, ever by myself.
Now it's slippin' away and
I need You to save me right now, right now.

Something's gotta change.
The beauty of the pain
Is that we do not stay the same
But we grow and we show
We are stronger than before.
When we reach for something more
And in the face of hate
Pour out love like rain.
Something's gotta change.

I don't wanna be just another put-on.
Yeah, tell me where has my heart gone.
I need to believe faith isn't just a word
That I stutter to the hurt inside
I need to see it and be it
The realness of Jesus right now, right now.

It could be beautiful and brand new
But only if it's me hand in hand with You.
