The Stories I Tell Myself Lyrics – Matt Maher

YouTube video

Verse 1:
Never faced a battle that he couldn’t win
And all you ever wanted was to be like him
But he drank his way through your teenage years
Now you’re stuck with the bill for your father’s sins
These are the stories I tell myself

Verse 2:
This town has a ceilin’ that you’ll never break through
You’ll always be alone in a crowded room
And no matter how hard you work, it’s true
You’ll never be enough just bein’ you
These are the stories I tеll myself

Chorus:
Oh, when I think of Abraham
Countin’ the stars up in thе sky
And when I think of Jacob
Fightin’ an angel for his life
And when I think of Joshua
Walkin’ ’round the walls until they fell
These are the stories I tell myself
These are the stories I tell

Verse 3:
My children, there are lessons that I cannot teach
There’s always gonna be somethin’ out of reach
By the grace of God, you remember well
These are the stories you’ll tell

Chorus:
Oh, when I think of Abraham
Countin’ the stars up in the sky
And when I think of Jacob
Fightin’ an angel for his life
And when I think of Joshua
Walkin’ ’round the walls until they fell
These are the stories I tell myself
These are the stories I tell
These are the stories I tell myself
These are the stories I tell

Bridge:
When I think about Jesus
Oh-oh-oh
When I think about Jesus
He never faced a battle that He couldn’t win
And all I ever needed, I found in Him
And He makes a way through the wilderness
From glory to glory, He is my story

Chorus:
When I think of Abraham
Countin’ the stars up in the sky
And when I think of Jacob
Fightin’ an angel for his life
And when I think of Joshua
Walkin’ ’round the walls until they fell
They went before me, and these are the stories
I think of Noah
Lookin’ for a sign after the rain
When I think about Moses
Speakin’ for the powerless in faith
When I think about Joseph
Dreamin’ at the bottom of a well
These are the stories I tell myself
These are the stories I tell
These are the stories I tell myself
These are the stories I tell myself
