 When we first met, I wasn’t looking for love

I wasn’t ready to be found.

I’d been hurt so many times before

I was afraid to let love get off the ground.

 

The feelings you had for me were very strong

Your love was starting to show.

I made excuses, I put up walls,

I wasn’t ready to know.

 

CHORUS:

Then I let Your love surround me

And I found that I was suddenly, FREE

Of the pain and the hurt that had held me,

FREE of the lies and the walls that surrounded me.

 

I was suspicious, I didn’t know

Where this was going to lead.

Falling for you, I kept my walls intact,

I was afraid to need.

 

CHORUS:

Then I let your love surround me

And I found that I was suddenly, FREE

Of the pain, and the hurt that had held me,

FREE of the lies and walls that surrounded me,

FREE now to need, and to know that You need me too,

FREE to be loved, and to know that I love You.

 

 

When we first met, I wasn’t looking for love

I wasn’t ready to be found.

You gave me your Son, You gave me everything,

You finally tore my walls down.

And when I let Your love surround me

I can know that I am finally FREE.
