The gate is wide
The road is paved in moderation
The crowd is kind
And quick to pull you in
Welcome to the middle ground
It's safe and sound and
Until now it's where I've been

‘Cause it's been fear that ties me down to everything
But it's been love, Your love, that cuts the strings

So long, status quo
I think I just let go
You make me want to be brave
The way it always was
Is no longer good enough
You make me want to be brave

I am small
And I speak when spoken to
But I am willing to risk it all
I saw Your name
Just Your name and I'm ready to jump
Even ready to fall


Why did I take this vow of compromise?
Why did I try to keep it all inside?
I've never known a fire that didn't begin with a flame
Evry storm will start with just a drop of rain
But, if You believe in me that changes everything
