Burn The Ships Lyrics

Artist: Steven Curtis Chapman
Album: Heaven in the Real World

In the spring of 1519 a Spanish fleet set sail
Cortez told his sailors this mission must not fail
On the eastern shore of Mexico they landed with great dreams
But the hardships of the new world make them restless and weak
Quietly they whispered, "Let's sail back to the life we knew"
But the one who led them there was saying

CHORUS
Burn the ships, we're here to stay
There's no way we could go back
Now that we've come this far by faith
Burn the ships, we've passed the point of no return
Our life is here
So let the ships burn

In the spring of new beginnings a searching heart set sail
Looking for a new life and a love that would not fail
On the shores of grace and mercy we landed with great joy
But an enemy was waiting to steal, kill, and destroy
Quietly he whispers, "Go back to the life you know"
But the one who led us here is saying

(Chorus)

BRIDGE
Nobody said it would be easy
But the one who brought us here
Is never gonna leave us alone

(Chorus)

I got married on October 13 of 09 I told
my wife that this would not be easy for the first few years. She said I know remember
I've been married before. I said ok not long
after we got married our next door neighbors daughter was selling their house
we put a bid in and got it. We've been in the house just shy of a year. Just in the past few weeks she started talking to an exboyfriend. And going to bed early and don't talk to me but will tell her mom everything. My mom don't get along with her. What to do?
