life inside you lyrics – matthew west

i know a girl who’s growing up too fast,
she’s stuck between her future and her past,
’cause she’s just a baby, but the doctors say,
she’s got a baby on the way!

and now the devastation makes her start to cry,
how could this be happening she wonders why,
but they’re talking options,
like it’s just another day,
and the choice is hers to make.

there’s a life inside you.
there’s a beating heart.
there’s a child of wonder,
shining like a star.
there’s a life inside you.

i know a boy who’s all caught up,
in his addictions and they’re tearing him up.
and now he’s hearing voices
telling him it’s time to let go.
but if i could talk to that boy,
i would die for him to know

there’s a life inside you.
there’s a beating heart.
there’s a child of wonder,
shining like a star.
there’s a life inside you.

we all arrive here in this place,
imperfect people in need of grace.
but that’s why god sent his only son to die,
so that every broken heart could have a life inside.
so, just open up your broken heart

there’s a life inside you.
there’s a beating heart.
there’s a child of wonder,
shining like a star.
there’s a life inside you.
