This too shall pass, oh, but it always comes back
And it’s knocking upon your door
You say, “How did you find me here? ‘Cause I’ve been running for years”
Now you’re back in the same place, yeah, you’ve been here before
Stuck in a maze trying to find an open door
Pray for the strength and take a leap of faith
And you fail in your mind long before you ever try
Why do you believe those lies?
You love to drown your fears, oh, but you’ve drowning for years, in tears
So what are you waiting for?
‘Cause there is a Savior waiting to save you
What are you drowning for?

Behind the Song:
'This was actually the first song that we tracked for this record. The theme of the song is to walk by faith and not by sight. So often we let our fears, insecurities and doubts decide for us what life can offer, but the truth is that God's plan for us may be something way bigger and more outlandish than we could ever dream up. When He gives us that glimpse of who we really are and what we're called to be, will we shy away and give in to doubt and fear, or will we trust our Father and take a leap of faith?' - Mark Graalman (Sanctus Real
