Love Grows Mighty

LOVE GROWS MIGHTY

2015 Answer Benefit Commission

 

When the darkness pulls you down

And the daylight’s breaking unfamiliar ground

And every shadow you turn, turns back on you

 

We’ve been walking in another man’s shoes

We’ve been walking on with nothing to prove

We’ve been walking down the center of a world that’s torn in two

 

Love grows mighty when it gives itself away

You’re growing stronger, feeling better these days

You’ve been looking down the barrel at a chamber of the human heart

 

The things that we try to own only own us in the end

And we don’t own anything if we can’t give it back again

The things that we try to own only own us in the end

And we don’t own anything if we can’t give it back again

 

So you tell yourself you’re gonna grow in care

Untie your mind and feel your way through prayer

Fold them into secrets and send them on their way

 

You were never built for a world like this

You can’t stand another tightened fist

When the fear and emptiness seems many miles away

 

Hold a candle to our darkened eyes

Show us the colors sowing hope and life

Smile in the overjoy that overflows with blinding light

 

Love grows mighty when it gives itself away

You’re growing stronger in the face of pain

You’ve been leaning out, You’ve been reaching out,

You’ve been crawling from the rubble and chains

 

The things that we try to own only own us in the end

And we don’t own anything if we can’t give it back again

The things that we try to own only own us in the end

And we don’t own anything if we can’t give it back again

 

‘cause freedom’s never free

Freedom’s never free

No freedom’s never free
