I wake up and again I hear
These heavy chains of what’s inside
My screams of pain are my proof of life
Too tired to live, to lie, and to hide

My eyes are tired to crying
I turn to You with a realization
In my journey from living to dying
Controlling my life is a fabrication

CHORUS
Oh Lord free me, please free me
Of comforting lies that haunt me
Show the reality I dare not see
That You alone can save me
That my surrender makes me free

You can change my life
Give me joy instead of strife
A clear vision of what’s ahead
Comfort when I’m confused and scared

And surround me with those who love me
Share my brokenness and their brokenness with me
And no matter of my riches or poverty
No matter of my baggage, they accept me

CHORUS
Oh Lord free me, please free me
Of comforting lies that haunt me
Show the reality I dare not see
That You alone can save me
That my surrender makes me free

Enter my life and set me free
Free to be what you want me to be
Free to be what I was meant to be
Living in your new reality

CHORUS
Oh Lord free me, please free me
Of comforting lies that haunt me
Show the reality I dare not see
That You alone can save me
That my surrender makes me free
