All the Wrong PlacesMature

How many lies do I have to believe before realizing the Truth?
How many mistakes do I have to make before accepting Forgiveness?
How many times do I have to be perfect before feeling worthy?
How many wrong places do I have to go to before discovering Him?

All the Wrong Places

Verse One
Over here, no, over there!
There's where I'll find the cure!
Searching there, no, searching here!
Here's where I'll become pure!

Chorus
How many times have I fallen down? 
How many times have I called for You?
Too many for me to ever count
Too many for me to come to Truth
All the wrong places have taken me
To the very place I never want to be 

Verse Two
 
Two roads, and I choose
The wrong one - invariably
Why do I run to
The things that scare me?

Chorus
How many times have I fallen down? 
How many times have I called for You?
Too many for me to ever count
Too many for me to come to Truth
All the wrong places have taken me
To the very place I never want to be  

Bridge
Yet Your Heart tells me a different story
One my voice cannot describe
For You look at me in Love
And tell me, with tears in Your Eyes,

Chorus
"No matter how often you have fallen down
I will always come running for you
My mercies are far too many to count
No words can express this Truth
All the wrong places, though painful they may be,
Have led you to the very place you want to be
All the wrong places have led you to Me.

The End
