If I Had To Die For Someone

I wear my seatbelt in the car I buckle up for safety
I run for cover from the storm
I wear a Band-Aid on my knee
I look both ways when crossing and I flee
Any danger I can see
And if I try each day to save my life in every way I can
How could I understand the way you died for me

Chorus:
‘Cause I don’t know if I could even if I think I would
If I had to die for someone
If I had to die for someone else
How could I ever give my life to set the guilty free
When I cannot imagine if I had to die for someone else like me
Someone else like me

I keep away from falling rocks and I don’t play with matches
I lock the door I don’t know why
It seems to me I am much too old
To wear a scarf out in the cold but
I want to live until I die
I guess I love my life a little more than I should love it
And if I had to I don’t know if I could lay it down

(Chorus)

Bridge:
And I am glad that You are not at all like me
‘Cause You laid down Your life and did it willingly
It still amazes me to know
It’s me that You were thinking of
No one else could have a greater love
A greater love

(Chorus)
