Made to Love Lyrics
The dream is fading now I'm staring at the door I know it's over 'cause my feet have hit the cold floor Check my reflection, I ain't feeling what I see Its no mystery
Whatever happened to a passion I could live for? What became of the flame that made me feel more? And when did I forget ...
That I was made to love You I was made to find You I was made just for You Made to adore You I was made to love and be loved by You You were here before me You were waiting on me And you said You'd keep me never would You leave me I was made to love And be loved by You
The dream's alive with my eyes open wide Back in the ring You got me swingin' for the grand prize I feel the haters spittin' vapors on my dreams But I still believe ...
I'm reaching out, reachin' up, reachin' over I feel a breeze cover me called Jehovah And Daddy I'm on my way ...
Anything, I would give up for You Everything, I'd give it all away

Song Description: "This song is the rhythm of what I love. It has a touch of island melodics with a hip-hop feel presiding. DJ cuts, live horns, and spicy female BGV's make it gritty and street like. It reflects who I am as an artist, rootsy enough, urban enough, and chanty yet melodic. The heart of the song was simply a prayer that unravels in conversational terms, honest and vulnerable. I describe my morning "The dream is fading now I'm staring at the door. " God it's you and me here alone, but I'm about to go face this day and all that comes with it. It's so easy for all of us to forget what matters to us in the midst of the chaos the world throws at us. This song is about the moment we remember... 'I was made to love and be loved by you.'" - TobyMac
