Day after day, I try to explain you, like I contain you in so many words
You are the ocean, I'm on the shoreline, thinking I know you like you could
Be learned
It's so amazing, that you'd ever save me
I thought I knew your face, I thought I tasted grace
But I have never felt anything close to this.
Just when I'd seen it all, new mercy breaks the door.
With eyes open wide, it feels like the first time, first time. it feels
Like the first time, first time.
After all of my searching, all of my reaching, I'm left with nothing,
Nothing of worth.
You treasure the broken, over and over, and give me a hope that can never
Be earned.
It's still amazing, that you'd ever save me.
I thought I knew your face, I thought I tasted grace
But I have never felt anything close to this.
Just when I'd seen it all, new mercy breaks the door.
With eyes open wide, it feels like the first time, first time. it feels
Like the first time, first time.
Your beauty, no eyes see. your majesty, your worthy. your love for me, is
Healing, your god.
I thought I knew your face, I thought I tasted grace
But it was nothing like this.
Just when I'd seen it all, new mercy breaks the door.
With eyes open wide, I feel life for the first time, first time. it feels
Like the first time, first time.
