Dear you, yeah you, the person listenin'.
It's God usin me tryin to get your attention yeah.
See He remembers the first day that He made you.
Molded your lungs for the breath that He gave you.
Not to mention the day He saved you.
And when He opened your eyes by the spirit Christ was raised through.
Did I mention that He forgave you?
And had His flesh ripped off for the sin you was enslaved to.
Now it seems you too far gone, you wanna turn back,
But you're unsure if you'll be welcome home.
So you figure you just leave it alone,
But you're addicted to yourself we both know you can't see it alone.
This is an intervention, Jesus intervened.
He intercedes on behalf of a sinner's deeds.
This is an intervention because the Lord hurts.
Before it gets worse, start making a reverse.

Chorus:
I pay no attention, lose my direction, all I chase is vanity.
I forget I've been forgiven, your love I been given, you graced on me lavishly.
You were born on earth, on the cross you died for me.
Forgive my depravity, You are my reality.

With cold water we drink, hot water we cook,
But luke warm does nothin.. it just sits and it looks.
If that's you, imagine these as the words of Christ:
"I remember you loved me, I remember your light.
It used to shine bright, but now it's so dim.
It used to be about us, but now it's 'bout them.
You can't win playin' heart games,
But I love you even when your light's off in your dark shame.
When you lay down and profane me,
Or when your bloodstream contains the things that would defame me.
When nobody knows that you claim me.
Or when you mess your life up, get mad, and wanna blame me.
I still want you back. I won't punish you.
I took that on the cross, because I wanted you.
I might discipline and chastise,
But if you got what you deserve you'd be in hell with other bad guys."

Chorus

You made it this far, and that's a big move.
But your addiction is hurting your other friends too.
Some of 'em miss you. Some of 'em dissed you,
But they was hurt and struggling to forgive you.
And they hated how addiction got the best of you,
Chose a lie when God promised the best for you.
If you realize your livin' in sin,
Just confess and realize you're forgiven of sin.

Chorus
