I ain't gonna lie, I can't even count the days
Or the many nights I tried living here alone
A heart full of pride, you couldn't see the enemy was me
I was blind and thought my second chance was gone

A ship without a sail, battered by a raging sea
Taking any love I can to try and stop the rain
While waiting to exhale, I finally got on my knees
I know it's been a long time, do You still remember my name?

Can I go back in time? Can I have another try?
But I can't change yesterday

Oh, I can't take another day without You
Cause this heart don't beat the same without You
I forgot who I was, got caught up in this world
Jesus, I apologize

I should've lost my mind without You
Not another sleepless night without You, Jesus
I'm sorry and I'm asking please
Make us how we used to be

I try and try to keep my mind on You
But trouble keeps calling me
Every time a wound heals
Something else takes the healing away

But even when I've gone too far
You don't even call my name
Mama said, "If you love let it go
And if it comes back then it's back to stay"

You already know I belong to only You
I run to Your arms and say

Oh, I can't take another day without You
Cause this heart don't beat the same without You
I forgot who I was, got caught up in this world
Jesus, I apologize

I should've lost my mind without You
Not another sleepless night without You, Jesus
I'm sorry and I'm asking please

Never knew a life so cold
Thought that things could fulfill my soul
Tried to find love on my own
It was hard to admit I was wrong

No money, no cars, no fame, no lies, no games
My life is taken

Now we've come to the break
Tell me what You gonna say, I know
I give my life right, but You know
You ain't promised tonight, baby girl

Without You, I can't breathe
Without You, I can't exist
Without You, this world ain't got nothing for me
I'm coming home

Oh, I can't take another day without You
Cause this heart don't beat the same without You
I forgot who I was, got caught up in this world
Jesus, I apologize

I should've lost my mind without You
Not another sleepless night without You, Jesus
I'm sorry and I'm asking please

Oh, I can't take another day without You
Cause this heart don't beat the same without You
I forgot who I was, got caught up in this world
Jesus, I apologize

I should've lost my mind without You
Not another sleepless night without You, Jesus
I'm sorry and I'm asking please
Make us how we used to be
Make us how we used to be
