I'm spiritually drained,
I’m falling away,
There is something that I lack.
I'm losing the flame,
It's fading away,
And I don't know how to get it back.
Looking back in my life,
I’ve seemed to stray so far.
I want the passion back,
But I don't know where to start.
Roll back to before, so young and so sure,
Restore my poor, deformed mind once more,
So your good news overwhelms this heart.
I'm falling, I'm crashing,
I'm losing the passion,
I don't even feel like hanging out.
I feel like a has-been,
My life is just clashing,
With what I know it should be about.
As I look, now, at my life,
I know I've strayed so far.
That which was essential,
Has become just another part.
A joyless obligation, choosing to be cynical,
Once striving for the spiritual, but now turned hypocritical.
Oh Spirit, please, transform my heart.
Have I lost the flame, is it burning out now?
Where has it gone?
I once praised your name, but now
I struggle to hear your song.
How did I fall so far?
...I want to get back to where you are.
I drop to my knees, fall flat on my face
I’ve been stripped from it all but a sliver of grace.
Though I long to be near,
You never left this place
My soul was never void of your embrace,
It was my heart that avoided your face.
I filled my mind with junk,
I'm always filling it with something.
Gaining knowledge of useless facts
Humorous clips, amounting to nothing.
Wasting opportunities, wasting time,
Social networks, social numbings
Oh Lord, you made me for your purposes,
Please redeem my shortcomings.
Soften the indifference in my heart,
For I did wonder away.
Yet your Spirit renews this passion,
Like dawn’s break of day.
A tiny spark, ignites the dark.
The light isn't what I've done, or I could ever do
But the whisper of hope, saying “I created you”
Reborn in love, with new desires comes a new heart.
Now, looking back on my life,
I see you've carried me this far.
You give the desires and You reshape the heart.
To be back on my knee,
You restore every scar.
Making my first love,
Once again consume my whole heart.
