You're The Reason I'm Alive (1)



You’re The Reason I’m Alive (1)
Author: Mark V. Markov

Lord Without You
My life would never change
The nights and days
Are old and grey
If I’d reach out and touch the rain
It just would be the same

Without You I’d be lost
I’d fall down from the top
So down so low
Some wouldn’t
Ever even know

Without You, without You
I'm lost at sea
Without You my Lord God
The world comes down on me

Without You in my life
I slowly fade and die
But with You by my side
You’re the reason I’m alive
But with You in my life
You’re the reason I’m alive
Oh I can never be,
I can never be Without You

Without You my hope
Is lost
It is so small
I never wanna be all alone
As the battles of life rage inside
Knowing someday to be with You
I overcome, I grow strong

Without You, without You
I'm lost at sea
Without You my Lord God
The world comes down on me
Without You in my life
I slowly fade and die
But with You by my side
You’re the reason I’m alive
But with You in my life
You’re the reason I’m alive
I can't be,
I can't be without You

I can face the mountains
But I can never climb alone
I can face the passing days
But how many just don’t know

You’re the reason the sun still shines
And the nights
They don’t look so cold
My Lord Jesus Christ
You I hold in my heart when I’m young
You I hold in my heart as I grow old

Without You in my life
I slowly wilt and die
But with You by my side
You’re the reason I’m alive
But with You in my life
You’re the reason I’m alive,
I can't be,
I can't be without You...
