Harder Than The First Time
I walked with you
Just like weíve done for so long
You seem so near
But even thatís become so common
Itís not just You, just been together so long
That I thought I knew everything about You
But today I saw
Did You open up my eyes?
ĎCause I feel like Iíve just seen You for the first time
I didnít see You
But God I want to
Youíve come alive
And I think Iíve fallen harder than the first time
Was I so blind?
How did I not see You?
Yet in all that time You never left my side
So for all my life I will live to know You
So here I am, Iíll take Your hand
I see Your face
I feel You close
The love Youíve always shown me
Wonít miss it now canít waste a day
Jesus Iím Yours completely

Behind the Song:
'During the breaks at a big Christian conference we were attending, we would run back to our hotel, get the guitar and go out to the pool, where weíd work on this song every day. We really felt like God put it on our hearts to write about how so often we take Him for granted. With God, we should always want more, to desire for a deeper and growing relationship. So, this song is about our love relationship with God, and how weíve fallen in love harder than we did the first time.' - Lauren Barlow (BarlowGirl)
