Did all your dreams come crashing down
Feels like no one hears you now
Did all the good things fall apart
Got so much anxious in your heart

I know that pain
You are not alone today

Even in troubled waters
Even on shaking ground
You can find rest in the Father
Lay your worries down
He won’t leave your side
He won’t fail you now
You can find rest in the Father
Lay your worries down

He will calm your restless soul
Remind you He won’t let you go
So when you feel that heartache call
He’s the safe place you can fall

Go back to the altar
Go back to the start
Go down to the water
Remember whose you are
Come back from the darkness
Run home to the light
No matter the chaos
His arms are open wide

About This Song

"This song was inspired by my wife. My wife called me early in the morning in the middle of touring. She's about 5 months pregnant and she's telling me that a man tried to break into our house while she was getting ready for work. At this point I'm thinking to myself I need to get home. I need to go see her and comfort her and she says, 'No. You're right where you need to be so you should stay.' To this day, that is just mind-blowing to me, but it didn't change what happened when I got home with this fear that I saw in my wife's eyes. This sense of unrest. When I wrote this song, I wrote it as if it was for her. I didn't speak to her in a way that I knew or even understood what that fear was like, I was just trying to say something that was true. Even in our darkest moments and those times in our lives where life seems out of our control, we can find peace in our God."
