Lately I've been thinking out loud
Asking too many questions and drowning in doubt
Where am I meant to be?
And what do you really want, want for me?

Pre-chorus:
Is it all just because
I don't see what You want me to see
I don't hear what You want me to hear
I don't feel what You want me to feel
And I turn my back on who You want me to be?

Refrain:
You never left me
You never left me
You never left me
I just need to step outside who I am
And surrender to Your higher plan
I ought to put my faith and trust in You
Faith and trust in You

There were times I felt you were gone
That you didn't want me all along
So why do I feel this heartache
And why do I feel my soul about to break

(Pre-chorus & refrain)

Why didn't I just open my eyes to the beauty of Your face
And stay in the stillness to hear Your voice
Reminding me that You made me
You know me, You know me
You love me, You love me

(Refrain)

I needed to look to see You
I needed to stop to hear You
I needed to open my heart
And step outside who I am
And surrender to Your higher plan

I ought to put my faith and trust in You
Faith and trust in You
I ought to put my faith and trust in You
Faith and trust in You
