The Good Guy (song with audio)

(based on David fleeing Absalom in Psalm 3).

_

I’ve been on the run before

Men have sought my life before

I’ve written songs in caves before

And You have rescued me

_

But this time I’m the one who’s hurt the ones I love

This time all the mess I’m in is mine

This time no one thinks that You should help me anymore

And I don’t know what to say this time,

Yeah I don’t know what to say this time

_

‘Cause I am not the good guy in this story anymore

I can’t plead the cleanness of my hands

I am not the good guy in the story anymore

Save me if You want me and You can,

Save me if You want me and You can

_

You’ve been on the run My Lord,

Men have sought Your life, my Lord

You screamed my song on Your cross Lord

And You have rescued me

_

‘Cause You knew that I’m the kind of man who hurts the ones I love

And all the mess You found me in was mine

So You came to take my place and save me after all

And show You were the Hero all the time,

Yeah You show You were the Hero all the time

_

‘Cause I am not the good guy in this story anymore

I can’t plead the cleanness of my hands

I am not the good guy in the story anymore

But now You’ve traded places with me and…

_

I find You’ve been the Good Guy in the story all along,

And I can plead the nailprints in Your hands

And You will be the Good Guy in the story evermore

And You save me ‘cause You want to and You can

You save me ‘cause You want to and You can.
