Lyrics

How could I be silent?
I used to wonder if I could ever by loved
Never gonna live up, should I give up? Will I ever be enough?
What I didn’t understand is you love me as I am
I don’t care what anybody thinks about me
You’re the only one that I need
No, I don’t care what anybody thinks about me
How could I be silent when there’s all this joy inside my heart
How could I be quiet when you gave me light to pierce the dark
How could I be silent, I will not be silent
Even though my sin had left crimson, you washed away those stains
And the grace you’ve given is the reason I’ll never be the same
How could I be silent, I will not be silent, how could I be silent
I didn’t wanna stand out, kept my head down, insecure inside my skin
Always looking back over, my shoulder, making sure I blended in
Then you gave me a new name, and I never was the same
I don’t care what anybody thinks about me
You’re the only one that I need
No, I don’t care what anybody thinks about me
How could I be silent when there’s all this joy inside my heart
How could I be quiet when you gave me light to pierce the dark
How could I be silent, I will not be silent
Even though my sin had left crimson, you washed away those stains
And the grace you’ve given is the reason I’ll never be the same
How could I be silent, I will not be silent, how could I be silent
I would not be silent (okay, yep)
You’re the one that I, one that I, one that I need
You’re the one that I, one that I, one that I need
You’re the one that I, one that I, one that I need
(I don’t care what anybody thinks about me)
You’re the one that I, one that I, one that I need
I don’t care what anybody thinks about me
How could I be silent when there’s all this joy inside my heart
How could I be quiet when you gave me light to pierce the dark
How could I be silent, I will not be silent (no, no)
Even though my sin had left crimson, you washed away those stains
And the grace you’ve given is the reason I’ll never be the same
How could I be silent, I will not be silent, how could I be silent
You’re the one that I, one that I, one that I need
(How could I be) You’re the one that I, one that I, one that I need
(How could I be, how could I be)
You’re the one that I, one that I, one that I need
(How could I be) yeah
You’re the one that I, one that I, one that I need

About This Song

a few notes from Joe B., Music Director

"This is my life story in a song. I was saved at a really young age, but I was never one to go share with other people what God had done in my life, for fear of what they might think about me. AS I grew up and walked with the Lord, I started to realize after all that He has done for me, there's no way I can be silent about that." - Caitie Hurst

This is a great anthem to help Lisa step further out of our comfort zone and be more excited to share about Christ.
