"POSSESSED"

Verse 1
Blackened sky, by candle light,
Moments spent alone at night.
No rest to find, no sleep is mine.
I twist and turn, my soul it yearns for
Peace inside,
Lord, Your strength to find.
I'm lying here alone.

Chorus 1 [see diagram for chorus riff]
[I need to hear You now.]
How can I know if these voices are all in my mind,
Or the thoughts in my head just running wild?
'Cause I think too much and way too long,
Yet sometimes I don't know what's right or what's wrong.
[Can't figure this out.]
Trying so hard to escape my will,
Like my own two cents and all the things I feel.
I'm lost in thought, my wisdom comes to naught.
Of course, I can't figure it out, what was I thinking?
[Lord, change my mind.]

[Possess me, possess me.]

Verse 2
I want to do what no one else can,
And see what my say is not real.
I want to fulfill my destiny,
Dream dreams of things to be,
Foresee what's to come, read the skies above.
I know the day will come when
Darkness falls all around me.

Chorus 2 [see diagram for chorus riff]
[I need to have Your mind.]
Give me the faith to do whatever You say.
Not my will today, but Your thoughts always.
Don't let me move without checking in first,
First things first, stop, look, listen, and learn.
[Give me a sign.]
I hold this rare gift in my hands,
All the power in the world is at my command
To move mountains and part the sea,
Just have faith plus trust, and wield the keys.
[Give me Your mind.]

Bridge
Oh God, open my heart, speak to me now.
Take away my own ways and my own will.
I'm down on my knees.

Chorus 3
[That's why I need Your mind.]
Live in me, think in me , move in me, and speak through me.
[You're changing my mind.]
I hold this rare gift in my hands,
All the power in the world is at my command.
[I hear You now.]
Don't let me move without checking in first,
First things first, stop, look, listen, and learn.
[That's why I need Your mind.]
Live in me, move in me, think in me, and speak through me.
[Give me Your mind.]

[Possess me, possess me.]

Ending
Oh God, I hear you now, You're speakin' to me now.
Oh God, I hear You now, [I hear You now.]
Oh God, I hear You now, You're speakin' to my heart now.
Oh God, I hear You now.
