Into the Wild
About the Song

Publishing & Lyrics
There is a calling You’ve placed upon me I’ve felt it all my life
Step out with both feet Walk on the water Leave my past behind
Pre Chorus 1
I wanna follow, follow Your heart
In the face of the unknown
I wanna trust You, trust who You are When I let go, I’m halfway home
Into the wild, oh
It’s time to dream like a child again Into the wild, oh
Letting go is where life begins
We're not so different We're all just children Under weathered skin
Forever searching We’re on a journey Back to innocence
Pre Chorus 2
So I will follow, follow Your heart In the face of the unknown
I will trust You, trust who You are When I let go, I’m halfway home
Yeah I can see it now, see it now Heaven is all around, all around Yeah I can see it now, see it now Heaven is all around
Pre Chorus 3
As I follow, follow Your heart There’s no fear of the unknown So I trust You, trust who You are As I let go, I’m finally home
