11. Progress Isn't A Straight Line

Progress Isn't A Straight Line
by Luke Knodel

       
Lyrics:

[Verse 1]
October twenty third that was the day I was born
Way out in Indiana we surrounded by corn
My parents love the Lord, and they really love me
Growing up on Disney Pixar Cars Lightning McQueen
I was loving playing sports and watching Star Wars Lion King
Reliably my anger fiery spouting out impropriety
During my early years I was a troublesome kid
I was mean and obscene seeing all that I did
I saw my deeds and I wanted to be completely different
My parents pointed me to the being omnipotent
Iím thinking it is the way to go but I was still so
Young and didnít make it my own yet I forget
I just wanted to play with the neighbors
I canít wait to stay outside until it gets later
Dad says itís time to come inside man I miss Trader
Joeís visits push a mini basket when I didnít chase paper

[Chorus]
Walking the straight and narrow path
Trust in his grace my faith gone last
I just wanna see your face
Help me to complete the race
Walking the straight and narrow path
Trust in his grace my faith gone last
I just wanna see your face
Help me to complete the race

[Verse 2]
In middle school I turned around, call it a one-eighty
Pursuing faith amazing grace always cause Christ saved me
And day to day I pray obey and then I start changing
Donít waste away Dwayne and Crae I hear their rap playing
Inside the car my dad he had a few CDís
And now my head it started nodding and honest I was intrigued
By Rebel, Rehab, The Overdose, and Gravity
I casually just started writing but it wasnít to beats
Even though I knew the Lord, still would search for worth in sports
Was emersed in church before hurting cursing on the course
Shank it, dang it, yelling fore I couldnít take it anymore
Aimless plain it was a chore next heard Nathan Paramore
Said I was doing pretty good, but I was unhappy
Tenth grade got pretty tough, it was a deep valley
Wasnít perfect, got discouraged but still you had me
Youíll never leave yeah I believe Iím in a true family

[Chorus]
Walking the straight and narrow path
Trust in his grace my faith gone last
I just wanna see your face
Help me to complete the race
Walking the straight and narrow path
Trust in his grace my faith gone last
I just wanna see your face
Help me to complete the race

[Bridge]
Look I know that Iím where I should be, not losing sleep
Over mistakes Iím hoping not to repeat, yeah I believe
My worthís not measured by the things I achieve and honestly
If this donít reach you it still impacted me positively
I thank the Lord and know Iím bowing a knee and crowning him king
Over my life and over everything
My eyes are on the prize, now Iím staying on the grind
Yeah I know itís taking time, progress isnít a straight line

[Chorus]
Walking the straight and narrow path
Trust in his grace my faith gone last
I just wanna see your face
Help me to complete the race
Walking the straight and narrow path
Trust in his grace my faith gone last
I just wanna see your face
Help me to complete the race

[Outro]
Let us also lay aside every weight
And sin which clings so closely
And let us run with endurance the race that is set before us
Looking to Jesus
