3 Doors Down

I am really into the new album by 3 Doors Down. There are several songs on this album that have ministry use in them. One that I am really resonating with right now is the song, ” It’s the Only One You’ve Got.” Check out the lyrics…

How do you know where your going,
When you don’t know where you’ve been?
You hide the shame that your not showing,
And you wont let anyone in.
A crowed street can be a quiet place when your walking alone.

And now you think that you’re the only one
Who doesn’t have to try.
And you wont have to feel,
If you’re afraid to fight,
Then I guess you never will.

You hide behind your walls of ‘maybe nevers’
Forgetting that theres something more,
Then just knowing better.
Your mistakes do not define you now
They tell you who you’re not.
You’ve got to live this life your given,
like its the only one you’ve got.

Memories have left you broken.
And the scars have never healed.
The emptiness in you is growing.
With so little left to feel.
You’re scared to look back on the days before…
You’re too tired to move on.

And now you think that you’re the only one
Who doesn’t have to try.
And you wont have to feel,
If you’re afraid to fly,
Then I guess you never will.

You hide behind your walls of ‘maybe nevers’
Forgetting that theres something more,
Then just knowing better.
Your mistakes do not define you now
They tell you who you’re not.
You’ve got to live this life your given,
like its the only one you’ve got.

Oh, what will it take?
Oh, to get you to say that I’ll try.
And what would you say if this was the last day of your life?

You hide behind your walls of ‘maybe nevers’
Forgetting that theres something more,
Then just knowing better.
Your mistakes do not define you now
They tell you who you’re not.
You’ve got to live this life your given,
like its the only one you’ve got.

You hide behind your walls of ‘maybe nevers’
Forgetting that theres something more,
Then just knowing better.
Your mistakes do not define you now
They tell you who you’re not.
You’ve got to live this life your given,
like its the only one you’ve got.

How many people in our world walk through life this way? The line that gets me is “your mistakes do not define you now.” We have the answer to that lyric. Are we sharing it? What do you think?
