I used to say I couldn't imagine what my life
would be like without
I used to say "I can't imagine my life without
I used to say that about everything.
Every new thing, every new person
every second of every day.
Where have you been my whole life
I don't know where I would be without
I think in most cases; its too small to matter.
I know. Most times I didn't want to think about the truth.
I have to catch myself from saying;
"I don't know where I'd be if it weren't for Jesus."
Oh, do I know.
Because I know what my life is like with him;
and because often I do not listen
I find myself sitting just on the edge
of a life, that I unfortunately remember living.
I am only steps away from breaking
and the only reason why I stand here, shaking
is because there is a God who knows better
than I do; because when I do me
I suffer, and hurt myself and everyone around me.
"I don't know where I'd be if it werent for Jesus."
Oh, but, do I know.
I thought about it all the time.
The dark corridors upon which I walked;
a man in hiding from himself
close to three kinds of death.
Theres a reason why I have to hope
even when I'm stuck in sin;
because I know where I'd be without Jesus.
Sometime's I just don't want to think about
