  • They've made me feel like a prisoner
    They've made me feel set free
    They've made me feel like a criminal
    Made me feel like a king

    They've lifted my heart
    To places I'd never been
    And they've dragged me down
    Back to where I began

    Words can build you up
    Words can break you down
    Start a fire in your heart or
    Put it out

    Let my words be life
    Let my words be truth
    I don't wanna say a word
    Unless it points the world back to You

    You can heal the heartache
    Speak over the fear
    (Speak over the fear)
    God, Your voice is the only thing
    We need to hear
    (We need to hear)

    Words can build us up
    Words can break us down
    Start a fire in our hearts or
    Put it out

    Let my words be life
    Let my words be truth
    I don't wanna say a word
    Unless it points the world back to You
    (Back to You)

    Let the words I say
    (Let the words I say)
    Be the sound of Your grace
    (Sound like Your grace)
    I don't wanna say a word
    Unless it points the world back to You

    I wanna speak Your love
    Not just another noise
    Oh, I wanna be Your light
    I wanna be Your voice

    Let my words be life
    Let my words be truth
    I don't wanna say a word
    Unless it points the world back to You
    (Back to You)

    Let the words I say
    (Let the words I say)
    Be the sound of Your grace
    (Sound like Your grace)
    I don't wanna say a word
    Unless it points the world back to You
    (Back to You)

    Words can build us up
    Words can break us down
    Start a fire in our hearts
    Or put it out

    I don't wanna say a word
    Unless it points the world back to You Writer/s: Jonathan Steingard, Matt Hammitt, Seth Mosley
