"THESE BATTLEGROUND YEARS"

Verse 1
Born in the Family, on the go,
Raised on God's Word, it's all I know,
Thousands of Scriptures, memorized.
Maybe more than you have realized.
I wanna live, for Jesus, I really do,
Because I love Him, but sometimes I get confused
And wonder, "Do you lose faith in me, too?"-

Bridge
Then you take time, out of your busy day,
When you make time to talk with me and pray;
I just know every, thing will be okay.

Chorus 1
So don'tgive up on me.
And your faith will help to see.
Me through all my fears, in these battleground years.

Verse 2
I'm just so glad for a friend who understands.
That this boy tries real hard to be a man.
Don't mean to cause you trouble, when I do,
Guess it's just part of this stage I'm going through.
But when to morrow's sun comes breakin', through the clouds,
I just know that day, I'm gonna make you proud,
To see me stand strong, 'cause you brought me along.

Chorus 2
So don't give up on me.
And you faith will help to see.
Me through all my tears, in these battleground years.

Repeat Bridge
Then you take time out of your busy day,
When you make time, to talk with me and pray;
I just know every everything will turn out to be A-okay.

Chorus 2
So don't give up on me.
No, don't give up on me.
Because your faith will help to see.
Me to victor--y, in these battleground years.
These battleground years.
Oh, these battleground years.
Just don't give up on me.
