Nate Sallie – Ruined lyrics

Why would I walk away from a life
Where I had it all, had it all
And people say that I've lost it
But I say they're wrong, so long

I've been captured by Your grace
Found home in Your embrace
Tasted waters from Your crystal stream
Oh yeah

I've been searching all my days
Looking for this better place
Now I'm living here inside this dream

I've been ruined for this life ordinary
I've been captivated by a different kind of living
Now I'm starving for Your yearning
I'm ruined, I'm ruined, oh yeah

No desire for business as usual
Or a walk through the park, no, no, no, no
Or playing it safe, never getting to close
Never going too far

Choosing the middle to survive, never pledging either side
Merely existing, barely getting by
Now I'm looking for Your longings, find a home that's worth belonging
Devastated by Your love divine

I've been ruined for this life ordinary
I've been captivated by a different kind of living
Now I'm starving for Your yearning

I'm ruined for this life ordinary
I've been captivated by a different kind of living
Now I'm starving for Your yearning, and I'm ruined

Something had to give the image that was me
I pulled the idol down caught up in a dream
You can tell I've rearranged, I've prioritized
You can see it on my face, see a fire in my eyes

You got me ruined for ordinary
You got me ruined for ordinary
You got me ruined, You got me ruined

I've been ruined for this life ordinary
I've been oh captivated by Your living
Now I'm starving for Your yearning
I'm ruined

You got me ruined for ordinary
You got me ruined for ordinary
You got me ruined, You got me ruined

You got me ruined for ordinary
