You Love Me Anyway

Album: These Simple Truths (2009)
  • The question was raised
    As my conscience fell
    A silly little lie

    It didn't mean much
    But it lingers still
    In the corners of my mind

    Still you call me to walk
    On the edge of this world
    To spread my dreams and fly

    But the future's so far
    My heart is so frail
    I think I'd rather stay inside

    But You love me anyway
    It's like nothing in life
    That I've ever known
    Yes You love me anyway
    Oh Lord, how You love me
    How you love me

    It took more than my strength
    To simply be still
    To seek but never find

    The reasons we change
    The reasons I doubt
    And Why do loved ones have to die?

    But You love me anyway
    It's like nothing in life
    That I've ever known
    Yes You love me anyway
    Oh Lord, how You love me

    I am the thorn in your crown
    But You love me anyway
    I am the sweat from Your brow
    But You love me anyway
    I am the nail in Your wrist
    But You love me anyway
    I am Judas' kiss
    But You love me anyway
    See now I am the man who yelled out from the crowd
    For Your blood to be spilled on this earth shaking ground
    Yes then I turned away with a smile on my face
    With this sin in my heart, tried to bury Your grace
    And then alone in the night I still call out for You
    So ashamed of my life, my life, my life

    But You love me anyway
    Oh God, how You love me
    Yes You love me anyway
    It's like nothing in life
    That I've ever known
    Yes You love me anyway
    Oh Lord, how You love me

    You love me
    You love me
    You love me
    You love me

    How You love me
    How You love me
    How You love me Writer/s: BEN MCDONALD, DAVE FREY, MARK DELAVERGNE
