Dead Man Walking

Album: The Story's Not Over (2019)
  • Freedom was something I never found
    Trying to find six feet underground
    Under the weight of all of my sin
    Fighting the fight that I couldn't win

    Then You rescued me
    And now I can breathe

    I was a dead man walking
    Until I was a man walking with You
    I was a blind man falling
    'Til I felt the life You're calling me to
    Pulling me out of the darkness and
    Pulling me out of the lies
    Putting the beat in my heart again
    I was a dead man walking
    Until You loved this dead man walking back to life

    I look for the words but cannot explain
    A new kind of love ran into my veins
    You are the key to all of my chains
    To all that I was, now I'm not a slave

    Then You rescued me
    And now I can breathe

    I was a dead man walking
    Until I was a man walking with You
    I was a blind man falling
    'Til I felt the life You're calling me to
    Pulling me out of the darkness and
    Pulling me out of the lies
    Putting the beat in my heart again
    I was a dead man walking
    Until You loved this dead man walking back to life

    I have tasted and I've seen the wonders of Your heart
    I do not deserve a thing, but that's just who You are

    I was a dead man walking
    Until I was a man walking with You
    I was a blind man falling
    'Til I felt the life You're calling me to
    Pulling me out of the darkness and
    Pulling me out of the lies
    Putting the beat in my heart again
    I was a dead man walking
    Until You loved this dead man walking back to life

    I was a dead man walking
    Until You loved this dead man back to lifeWriter/s: Emily Weisband, Jeremy Camp, Jordan Sapp
