"For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

The sand in your hand-
Hold it loosely-there it stays
But tighten your fist
And it all slips away
I am the sand in your hand
You hold me so tight
And I'm slipping away
Can't you understand?

I need space to be free
I need room to be me
You don't have to let go completely
All of you that I'm asking
Is that you just let me
Just let me breathe
Just let me
Just let me breathe

Fences surround me
Keeping me in-here to stay
I guess at one time
That they kept me safe
But now they hold me back
I strain to be free
And I'm losing it seems
Can't you understand


All I that I crave
Is a breath of fresh air
But you're holding me beneath the waves
oh, let me breathe, let me breathe
please let me breathe, just let me breathe
