.Why am I up here in the cheap seats, Lord?

All my friends are on the front row

Why do they get to party

When I’m stuck home alone?

Why don’t I ever get to lead the parade

I’m marching in the back row.

Why am I up here in the cheap seats, Lord

Where nobody wants to go?

2.Why am I stuck here in the cheap seats Lord

Staring down at all the folks far below?

How come their lives are moving fast

But my life’s moving slow?

They’re making lots of money Lord

But I’m still short on dough

Why’m I up here in the cheap seats, Lord

Staring down at the folks below?

REFRAIN

But Lord I run to You, I can run to You

And Your arms are open open wide,

You give me everything, Eternity
More than money & power can buy!

I draw near to You In the Secret Place

I draw near to You any time or place

You give me hope and joy and strength

You give me hope and joy and strength

You give me hope and power and strength!

  1. They’re all slapping High Fives,Lord

But my life’s in this slump.

Everybody’s “got the Victory,” Lord

But my life’s in the dump

They’re all playin’ in the fountain Lord

But I’m stuck in the mud

Everybody’s having so much fun

So why’s my life a dud?
