03. You Are More

The Light Meets The Dark
by Tenth Avenue North



 

There's a girl in the corner
With tear stains on her eyes
From the places she's wandered
And the shame she can't hide

She says, 'How did I get here?
I'm not who I once was.
And I'm crippled by the fear
That I've fallen too far to love'

But don't you know who you are,
What's been done for you?
Yeah don't you know who you are?

You are more than the choices that you've made,
You are more than the sum of your past mistakes,
You are more than the problems you create,
You've been remade.

Well she tries to believe it
That she's been given new life
But she can't shake the feeling
That it's not true tonight

She knows all the answers
And she's rehearsed all the lines
And so she'll try to do better
But then she's too weak to try

But don't you know who you are?

You are more than the choices that you've made,
You are more than the sum of your past mistakes,
You are more than the problems you create,
You've been remade.

You are more than the choices that you've made,
You are more than the sum of your past mistakes,
You are more than the problems you create,
You've been remade.

'Cause this is not about what you've done,
But what's been done for you.
This is not about where you've been,
But where your brokenness brings you to

This is not about what you feel,
But what He felt to forgive you,
And what He felt to make you loved.

You are more than the choices that you've made,
You are more than the sum of your past mistakes,
You are more than the problems you create,
You've been remade.

You are more than the choices that you've made,
You are more than the sum of your past mistakes,
You are more than the problems you create,
You've been remade.

You've been remade
You've been remade.
You've been remade.
You've been remade.



Behind the Song:
“Every time we play it, people come up to us and say that’s the first time they’ve ever heard anything like what the song says: ‘You are more than the problems you’ve made, the sum of your past mistakes.’ People don’t believe that. They believe the choices that they’ve made make them who they are and who they will continue to be until the day they die. The gospel doesn’t work on that scale and that’s what a lot of non-believers and believers don’t know about the gospel is that Christ has made you a new creation and you are known as a child of God. That song has been really powerful and so we’re excited.” (Jeff Owen)

“This song might have the most important message of the whole album. It says: ‘This is not about what you’ve done or what’s been done to you and it’s not about where you’ve been but where you’re brokenness brings you.’ This is not about what you feel. In a world where our validation and our acceptance is based upon what we do, how well we perform, what we feel, I feel like that is just a really special statement to sort of negate all those false ideas that are going around. It’s not about what we do, or what we feel, it’s about what He did and what He felt. It’s about what Christ has done for us.” (Mike Donehey) -- Tenth Avenue North
