MAY MY LIFE SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS
And what I’m saying is Jesus I’m sure
You’re what I want, yeah
That’s what I want
These words ain’t cheap, no, they bleed on the page
I see what I’ve been and that needs to change
And that’s what I want, yeah
You’re what I want

Ha-la-la-lelujah, yeah
Hallelu
Ha-la-la-lelujah, oh yeah
What I want is You


I want to sing, sing, and mean every word
‘Cause what I’m singing is joy to the world
And that’s what I want, yeah
That’s what I want
So go on, sing, sing, all of heaven and earth
But don’t just sing, be, and be every word
That’s what I want, yeah
That’s what I want
Hallelujah.
