Lyrics for So Close

1. GET OVER IT
V1:
You did it again...made a mountain from a molehill, petty stuff
You gotta rise above
As you navigate your way
Through another weary day
Remember these words: 
An uphill battle is easier with nothing on your back

CHORUS:
Yeah, you gotta get over it
Gotta get over, gotta get over, gotta get over it
You gotta shrug it away
Yeah, you gotta get over it
Gotta get over, gotta get over, gotta get over it
And seize the day
Heal your heart, mend your mind, and climb your climb
Get over it

V2:
It's driving you mad...irritations and frustrations adding up
And you've had enough
As you try to push on through
It just chips away at you
Remember these words: 
An uphill battle is harder when you waste your breath

~CHORUS~

BRIDGE:
Grudges and troubles, things get so muddled
They'll tear you up inside
You best let them go, or before you know
You're swallowed up by bitterness and pride

~CHORUS~

2. TAKE THIS WITH YOU
V1:
May the road rise to meet you, and the sun kiss your face
May there always be a miracle waitin just to bless your day
Life won't always hand you roses, don’t let it get ya down
Keep your eyes on what your goal is, and your feet on solid ground
Take this with you...where you go

CHORUS:
You are loved, loved, loved, loved, loved, loved
You are loved, yeah you are
(Repeat)

V2:
Might you walk courageously through the valley of your doubt
Might you always strive to just keep believing in yourself
When the trouble comes and it will, hold your head up high
Shine your light as bright as you can, til your trouble passes by
And always know

~CHORUS~

BRIDGE:
Life won’t always be hard
But when it is, don’t forget who you are
And the fact that you are
Looooooved, loooooved

...You’re great, don't ever lose sight of that

3. FATHER HELP ME
V1: 
Father, can You hear me?
I am hurting, I need You now
Father, please be near me
I need to feel Your strength somehow

PRECHORUS:
I am afraid, lost and dismayed 
I am broken
I feel so drained, I’ve got nothing left to say 
I am empty

CHORUS:
I cry out, I cry out: help me
I cry out, I cry out: help me

V2:
Lord, my hope has failed me
I can’t seem to lift my head
Lord, my pain’s derailed me
I can’t seem to leave my bed

~PRECHORUS/CHORUS~

BRIDGE:
I cry out both night and day
Incline Your ear to hear me pray 
My soul is troubled and my heart is in a battle 
I’m as good as dead
I am tattered, I am tired
I am worn and uninspired
They say You don’t give us more than we can handle
But I’m right on the edge

~CHORUS~

Help me...Father help me  

4. ACCEPTANCE
V1:
My hair is in knots
I've had negative thoughts
and I'm questioning every small thing
My house isn’t clean
I'm so tired I could scream
But at the tips of my toes I will sing

CHORUS:
This is me, in all of my splendor
I have struggles, I have issues, I surrender
I'm a big ole mess…
But so are you
We're all complicated
We are flawed and we are frayed and we are faded
But we do our best, deserve nothing less
Than acceptance

V2:
At times I feel blue, I’ve anxieties too
Exhaustion’s my only repose
But I wake up each day and press on anyway
And try not to dwell on the lows

~CHORUS~

BRIDGE:
There are days when I’m barely treading water
And the world won't cut me any slack
But I keep my head up and don't bother
Worrying who's at my back

Cuz this is me, in all of my splendor
I am bruised, I am scarred, I’m a little tender
But I’m doing my best
And so are you
We all do what we can
It’s a long and windy road but in the end...
...we need acceptance

5. SYMPHONY  
V1:
I can feel You move in
Every inch of my soul and 
I can tell You’re wanting me change
I know that this music
Is only what You make of it and I, 
I know the notes are prearranged

CHORUS:
So use my voice to sing Your melody
I’ll sing it as you please
I make the choice to live Your symphony
Cuz it brings me to my knees
When this life is hard on me
I find in You, sweet harmony

VERSE 2:
I've seen the way You polish 
even sharpest edges
When I present my flaws in honesty
And I know You are able to
shine in all I say and do, and 
mold me in to what You see in me
~CHORUS~

BRIDGE:
You know my heart
You have from the very start and
You know just where I’m headed
I sometimes forget that
My every regret, that
You forgive and forget it

~CHORUS~

6. LULLABY (IT IS WELL)
V1: 
Sweet baby
Night is here 
As the dark surrounds you 
Have no fear 

CHORUS 1: 
Cause God is with you always 
Close your eyes and feel Him in your heart 
God is with you always 
You will never be apart 

V2: 
Sweet darlin
You are blessed 
May your peaceful slumber 
Bring you rest 

~CHORUS 1~ 

BRIDGE: 
God will protect you while you sleep 
He’s guardian o’er all of the night 
Then come dawn you can go 
face the world feeling whole 
It is well, it is well, you’re alright 

V3: 
Sweet angel
Know it's true 
That it's not just God's love 
But my love too 

CHORUS 2: 
For I am with you always 
Close your eyes and feel me in your heart 
I am with you always 
We will never be apart

7. BE WITH ME
V1:
Be with me Jesus; I ask you to stay
Comfort my worries, through the night until day
In the darkness, Lord Jesus, I am the devil’s prey
So I beg of you please just stay, stay

V2: 
In the mornin, my Lord; try as I may
I still need Your Mercy; still need Your Grace
So if You dont mind, sweet Jesus; whataya say
Will you be with me always, til my dyin day
Will You be with me always……til my dyin day

V3:
An entire verse of humming
(Tag) oooooo ooooo ooo
