Is our world spinning backwards
What has brought about this change
Can't you see that people aren't the same
I wish I were dreamin'
And could wake up from my sleep
And find us all the way we used to be
'Cause the love that used to be in dyin'
Is anybody even tryin'
And I don't know how, I don't know why
But somethin' in my soul is cryin' (listen)
Sometimes love has to drive a nail into it's own hand
Sometimes love has to drive a nail into it's own hand
One pair of hands broke some bread and washed some feet
Opened eyes and soothed an angry sea
Belong to a man who could see our depeest need
And showed us love the way it has to be
'Cause He knew the price that love requires
And He laid down His own desires
He stretched out His hands to save His friends
And said no other love is higher (so listen to me now, singin')
Sometimes love has to drive a nail into it's own hand
Sometimes love has to drive a nail into it's own hand
Love can change us, love can make a way
Only love can change us, love can make a way
Sometimes love has to drive a nail into it's own hand
Sometimes love has to drive a nail into it's own hand
I wish I were dreamin'
And could wake up from my sleep
And find us all the way we used to be
