i've been living my whole life without You
i've been so close, but still i had no clue
i'm twenty now and see there's nothing left for me
i've lived two lives, i know too much about hypocrisy

lately You have worked in my life, when i didn't even call
i lived the way i wanted to live, but You still didn't let me fall
wild gentleman and crazy man, my tongue wasn't tamed
after it was all said and done, all i ever see is Your face

i've seen there's no heaven on earth, except when sin is gone
judgment day is coming and i don't want to be the one who You forgot
with fear, i'll shed a tear cause i know there will come my day
when i die, i want to look in Your eyes and hear You say my name

Tom this is really good. It's very transparent and honest. You can tell you write with your heart.
