Changed

Rascal Flatts
I came up out of the water
Raise my hands up to the father
Gave it all to him that day
Felt a new wind kiss my face
Walked away, eyes wide open
Could finally see where I was going
Didn't matter where I'd been I'm not the same man I was then

I got off track, I made mistakes
Back slid my way into that place where souls get lost
Lines get crossed
And the pain won't go away
I hit my knees, now here I stand
There I was, now here I am
Here I am, changed

I got a lot of "hey I'm sorry"s
The things I've done, man that was not me
I wish I could take it all back
I just want to tell 'em that
Tell 'em that

I got off track, I made mistakes
Back slid my way into that place where souls get lost
Lines get crossed
And the pain won't go away
I hit my knees, now here I stand
There I was, now here I am
Here I am,
I've changed for the better
More smiles, that's better
I even started to forgive myself
Yes I am

Because Jesus was raised from the dead, we’ve been given a brand-new life and have everything to live for, including a future in heaven—and the future starts now! God is keeping careful watch over us and the future. The Day is coming when you’ll have it all—life healed and whole. 1 Peter 1:4-5
