There was time when I was looking for something real hard
I'm not quite sure what it was, but I think...
I think it was peace with God

What I longed for were bluer skies
Somethin' to fill the emptiness deep inside
Just when my life seemed to unravel again
I knew I was fallin' I needed a friend

I wasn't lookin' for a love so real
I never thought I could reach the sky
Then when I least expected a reason why
To my surprise

I better stay focused on what's gonna last
The Lamb of God erased the sins of my past
If I just lock into Jesus each day
He promised to help me and carry the weight

And now that I know he paid for my sin
I'm washed in his blood, this new life begins

I wasn't lookin' for a love so real
I never thought I could reach the sky
Then when I least expected a reason why
To my surprise

No, I never expected to know the most high
To lose the weight of my sins so I could fly so high

I wasn't lookin' for a love so real
I never thought I could reach the sky
Then when I least expected a reason why
To my surprise

I wasn't lookin' for a love so real
I never thought I could reach the sky
Then when I least expected a reason why
To my surprise

You opened my eyes
Oh what a surprise
You opened, you opened, you opened my eyes
