01. Sleeping In

In The Making...
by Nevertheless



 

I've been sleeping in for days
'Cause when I am awake
I will have to face my life
And I'm hoping it's a phase
The walls that I create
Can only make it seem alright
And I get carried away like I'm the only one
Who’s ever felt the way that I do
But I can hear You say
"You're not the only one
Everybody hopes to get through"

And it's got me sleeping in
Everyday God, it's the same thing
Yeah, You caught me sleeping in
I'm still hiding
I'm still waiting
I need You here with me to face the world outside
'Cause I'm tired of sleeping in

I've been waking up with fear
'Cause all that I can hear
Is the ringing of alarms downtown
It's been going on for years
But You have made it clear
That I am not alone in this crowd
And I get carried away like I'm the only one
Who's ever felt the way that I do
But I can hear You say
"You're not the only one
Everybody hopes to get through"

Open up my eyes
I'm tired of sleeping in
In a world that's dying to wake up

I'm done with sleeping in

Behind the Song:
“We all have certain insecurities that creep in from time to time in our lives. At some point, each one of us will face something that is very difficult, and we will either have the choice to ignore it or face it head on with the strength that only God can give us. This song was written as an encouragement to others to say, first of all, that we all face these trying things, and, secondly, that we can make it through the most difficult of times if we rely on God. We have to decide to stop sleeping in and move forward in God’s grace.” - Joshua Pearson (Nevertheless)
