Make a Way

Album: Relentless (2008)

  • She was only seventeen
    Wild at heart and following her dreams
    Even she was pretty, got a ticket to the city
    Where she'd find her place on the cover of a magazine
    It was only but it would lead the way
    To the door of a man where she'd throw it all away
    He said they'd take it slow but little did she know
    She'd be all used up by the end of the day

    But she was strong, she would survive
    Ambition would be her drive

    I'll make the way
    I'll do whatever it takes even though it won't be easy
    I have a plan and though I may not understand
    Someday I'll make a way
    Here me say someday I'll make a way

    Where did she go wrong
    How did she get here
    Living hard and looking older than her years
    Miss Little Bigtown trying to hold a job down
    Just doing what she could to choke her fears

    But she was strong, she would survive
    The spark of hope that kept her dream was not alive

    I'll make a way
    I'll do whatever it takes even though it won't be easy
    I have a plan and though I may not understand
    Someday I'll make a way

    Walking down the road
    In the city where she'd come with so much hope
    See her vision had long died
    Along with all her pride
    When she found herself at the end of her road
    She heard angels through the doors
    Of a church she'd passed a million times before
    Inside the choirs song was ringing
    Since she'd found herself believing
    Out there maybe there was something more

    And so she bowed her head to pray
    She cried Jesus please make a way
    And she heard Him say

    I'll make a way
    I'll do whatever it takes even though it won't be easy
    I have a plan and though you may not understand
    Today I'll make a way
    Hear Him say today He'll make a way

    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah

    Today He'll make a way
    For you He's gonna make a way
    For you He'll make a way
