Lyrics

I remember when I was thirteen
I saw a picture on my T.V. screen
The Reverend Billy Graham
And the people singing Just As I Am
And it felt like
You were talking to me

And the whole world seemed to fade away
Until I heard my mother say
Son, are you okay? Do you wanna pray?
And that became the hour I first believed

Next thing you know
I’m high and flyin’
Next thing you know
My heart is in your hands
Next thing you know
There’s no denyin’
Next thing you know
I’m a brand new man

Well, I wish I could say
I always stayed right there
And I did until my freshman year
But the world was pulling me a long way from thirteen
And you were calling but I didn’t hear
Still I knew there was something more
So one day my knees hit the dorm room floor
I said, If you’re there, and if you really care
Come and talk to me like I was thirteen

And next thing you know
I’m high and flyin’
Next thing you know
My heart is in your hands
Next thing you know
There’s no denyin’
Next thing you know
I’m a brand new man

I’ve got a picture in my head today
Of how heaven might look someday
I see the people there
So I pull up a chair
And their stories, they blow me away

‘Cause I can see it on every face
The evidence of grace
And as I listen it occurs to me
Everybody’s got their own thirteen

So what’s your story about His glory?
You’ve gotta find your place in the history of grace
Yeah, what’s your story about His glory?
Come on, find your place

Next thing you know
I’m high and flyin’
Next thing you know
My heart is in your hands
Next thing you know
There’s no denyin’
Next thing you know
I’m a brand new man

Next thing you know
I’m high and flyin’
Next thing you know
My heart is in your hands
Next thing you know
There’s no denyin’
Next thing you know
I’m a brand new man
