Basics of Life


Weve turned the page, for a new day has dawned
Weve re-arranged what is right and whats wrong
Somehow weve drifted so far from the truth
That we cant get back home
Where are the virtues that once gave us light
Where are the morals that governed our lives
Someday we all will awake and look back
just to find what weve lost


We need to get back
To the basics of life
A heart that is pure
And a love that is blind
A faith that is fervently
grounded in Christ
The hope that endures for all times
These are the basics,
we need to get back
To the basics of life


The newest rage is to reason it out
Just meditate and you can overcome every doubt
After all man is a God, they say
God is no longer alive


But I still believe in the old rugged cross
And I still believe there is hope for the lost
And I know the rock of all ages will stand
Through changes of time


We need to get back
To the basics of life
A heart that is pure
And a love that is blind
A faith that is fervently
grounded in Christ
The hope that endures for all times
These are the basics,
we need to get back
To the basics of life


BRIDGE
Weve let the darkness invade us too long
Weve got to turn the tide
Oh and we need the passion that burned long ago
To come and open our eyes
Theres no room for compromise


We need to get back
To the basics of life
A heart that is pure
And a love that is blind


We need to get back
To the basics of life
A heart that is pure
The hope that endures for all times
These are the basics,
we need to get back
To the basics of life
