The City Sessions project was birthed out of the concept that cities are compressed environments. In the city, there seems to be a barrage of creative solutions for some of life's deepest questions: ‘Who I am?’ ‘Why am I here?’ and, Where can I find freedom?’ The hope of this album is to help confront and deal with some of these deeper human questions. Our desire from the start of this project was to record a live audio-visual experience that spiritually decompressed the frantic soul, challenge the way we think about faith, and help bring a more personal encounter to Jesus Himself.

My heart was a burial ground
Broken under the surface
With no light to be found
But You pulled me out of the grave
Like a desolate treasure
And You called me by my name

Up from the ashes
God You are making something beautiful
For You have won my heart
No longer ruined I have been ransomed by Your jealous love
For You have won my heart

My heart was a vessel of war
Sinking under the surface
In the wake of the storm
But You saw the depths of my shame
And with reckless abandon
Triumphed over the grave

Break me, mold me, take me, use me
You won my heart, You won my heart
Find me, free me, heal me, lead me
You won my heart, You won my heart

Dear God,
It's hard for me to rest when everything inside beats so fast
Hard for me to accept love when all I've ever known are heart attacks
And heart failures - cardiac arrest, you see
I'm not used to being healthy
Just making sure everyone thinks I am, but who am I?
I always ask myself the question
why this fearful heart can't accept your reckless invitations
And maybe I've seen too many brave hearts get executed
And I'm afraid to be next
Got all this pain locked inside but I don't know how to open up my chest
So just leave me to myself 'cuz it hurts to get cut
Except every time that happens, I self-destruct
I lie, I hate, blame, hurt everyone I love
Like what's wrong with me GOD, am I allergic to love? Your love?
Please help me to receive it like medicine for this low-grade fever
'Cuz I'm so tired of feeling sick and tired
out of control like a soul that would never be treated
But I heard you love healing broken things
If I step back and surrender all the pieces
And you promised to give me something whole in return if all I had to give was a few mustard seeds and
a little bit of faith
a little bit of hope
a little bit of trust to have to believe that's enough
a little bit of faith
a little bit of hope
a little bit of trust to have to believe that's enough
for You to start also for You to finish

I'll get out of the way while You handle Your business
I'll lose control while You hold up my senses
Give you all and You take away my defenses
So God, I'm running back to the start
I won't run anymore
You've won my heart
