Leeland - Opposite way

Living in the same town,
for all these years.
Doing the same old things,
hanging with the same crowd.
And its starting to get crippleling
You've never felt in place
And you tell yourself its all okay
But something is different today
You want to run the opposite way
And it seems like you're locked in a cage
and you need to find a way of escape.
When everyone is setting the pace.
Its okay to run the opposite way

The Father sent His Son down
The light of men
and the cross he bore was crippleling
Rejected in His own town
And they couldnt see the Son shining
He knelt in the garden, and prayed
Father let this cup pass from me
If not your will for me to stay
your will for me is the opposite way
and it seemed like he was locked in a cage
and he couldnt find a way of escape
But through the cross He conquered the grave
My Jesus ran the opposite way


And through the cross He conquered the grave
He ran the opposite way

And through the cross He conquered the grave
So you could run the opposite way
