02. End Of Me

Building 429
by Building 429



 

I was the one to call the shots
Dreamed my dreams, heart and soul
Answered only to myself
Never giving up control
Until the one day, that brought me to my knees
And I would never be the same

CHORUS
Once upon a time the story goes
I laid it all down and let it go
To lose it all, to lose it all
I took a step of faith and said goodbye
Everything I had I left behind
To find true life
All I longed for I found finally
At the end of me

Now they’re gone, those wasted days
The selfish soul, the emptiness
Love moved in, they’ve been replaced
That old life is laid to rest
Now the new me is stronger day by day
I will never be the same

CHORUS

Like an answer to a prayer
Jesus you were there
Calling me to live to die, to give to gain
And I’ll never be the same

CHORUS

Behind the Song:
"Every one of us thinks we have our lives under control. Every one of us desires the life of peace, of joy, and happiness. It's funny though that with every step we take toward this goal we always seem to find ourselves further away. ”End of Me” is a song that attempts to bring some perspective to that quest. "All I've longed for I found finally at the end of me" is my constant reminder these days to live my life by God's design. To leave the burdens and the comforts of believing I'm in control, to find true life. When I admit I have no control, and that God himself gets that responsibility, everything seems to make a little more sense." - Building 429
