"Oh and you better run 'cause His love is catching you
And you're scared that when it does its gonna break through
You build your house of dreams behind a wall
That no one could penetrate
And you leave yourself no escape
No chance to be made new

Oh and you better stand with your fist clenched to the sky
'Cause open handed you're afraid of what you may find
You've got it all or so you want to think
But anyway you'd much rather pretend
It's too much to run the risk
When you can simply close your eyes

And you can live without Him
You can live without Him if you want
You can turn your back on music
Turn your back on love
Tuck your tail and run

'Cause you're good at looking down, never seeing a thing
You're good at being touched and never feeling
You're good at sitting in the midst of a music that's never heard
But you're not as good at living as you thought you were

But you can live
(You can live without Him)
If that's what living is
(You can live without Him)
Death would be such a gift
Oh Lord let me die that I might find my life in You

You can live without Him
You can live without Him if you want
But that is so much less
Than any life that I could ever choose

Oh and you better fill the empty spaces with some noise
'Cause if you look too squarely at the facts
You might have to make a choice
You'd better put off 'til tomorrow
Maybe then you'll be more in control
Somehow tonight this feeling
Stole into you and left you soiled

Oh and you throw it off before you see beyond the day
There may very well be more
But not right now don't let it in
And if you don't let it root
You'll never have to let it make you grow
It's more life than you want to know
So shut it down again

And you can live without Him
(You can live without Him)
You can live without Him if you want
You can turn your back on music
Turn your back on love
Tuck your tail and run

'Cause you're good at looking down never seeing a thing
You're good at being touched and never feeling
You're good at sitting in the midst of a music that's never heard
But you're not as good at living as you thought you were

But you can live
(You can live without Him)
If that's what living is
(You can live without Him)
Death would be such a gift
Oh Lord let me die
That I might find my life in You

You can live without Him
You can live without Him if you want
But that is so much less than any life
I could ever choose"
