Newsboys — Giving It Over lyrics

I was a teen flat-liner on the joy screen
Dead in the water of life as we knew
You offered me drink,
I wanted more than a sip
But I couldn't let go of the straws
I was clinging to

Giving it over, giving it over
I was flat on my back, I'd slid 'til it hurt
Giving it over, giving it over
You put my head in the clouds
And my feet in good dirt
My head in the clouds
And my feet in good...

Dirt Devils were crowding my head
With lies they spread
They'd convinced me of
What fools know isn't true
Quick as an Outkast rhyme
You took me back in time
Back to the first love I ever knew

Giving it over, giving it over
Got my broken heart healed
And removed from it's cast
Giving it over, giving it over
Yeah, I'm giving myself to
A true love at last
Giving myself to a true love at last

You don't know where
The wind's gonna blow
And since you can't take it with you
Better give it away before you go
Yeah, I'm giving it over

Greed is the word, it's a verb
Wants to bind us all
Bind us together like a platinum truss
Giving it over, giving it over
I'm putting my heart into treasures
That don't rust
I'm giving it all over to a face I can trust

You don't know where
The wind's gonna blow
And since you can't take it with you
Better give it away before you go
Yeah, I'm giving it over
