Everytime I try to play it safe
Holding back just a little part of me
I find myself forgetting what
I say that I believe
The promise of Your Word
Is all I need, is all I need
I'll lay my life down
And give it up
I'll give it up

I wanna be reckless
Cause You are endless
I wanna be shameless
And shout Your greatness
I will not be afraid
To surrender my way
And follow who You are
I wanna be reckless, reckless

I will lose my life
And just let go
Because I know this world is not my home, no
With fearless faith
I won't be moved
Unshakeable inside Your truth
You laid Your life down
And gave it up
So I'll give it up

I wanna be reckless
Cause You are endless
I wanna be shameless
And shout Your greatness
I will not be afraid
To surrender my way
And follow who You are
I wanna be reckless, reckless

And I won't waste any more time
My life's Yours it is not mine
Use me Lord no matter what's at stake

I wanna be reckless
Cause You are endless
I wanna be shameless
And shout Your greatness
I will not be afraid
To surrender my way
And follow who You are
I wanna be reckless, reckless
For you, oh for you Lord
For you, oh for you Lord

I wanna be reckless
(I will not be afraid no...)
Cause You are endless
I wanna be shameless
And shout Your greatness

Jeremy Camp gave an interview to Worship Leader and was asked "What do you hope to communicate with Reckless?"

    My hope is that this album encourages people to step into the fullness of what God has called them to do, and take action. The album is meant to encourage all of us to go out, not just me. If we can all work together and be in the same place spiritually, that body of Christ working together can fuel a passion that is truly great. There is power in numbers!
    —Jeremy Camp, Worship Leader

In addition, Jeremy Camp was asked the question in the same interview with Worship Leader that "In terms of production, what did you feel was most importantly communicated in the album? What aspect did you want to stand out the most?"

    The whole album shows what God has been doing in my life and in my heart. He has been teaching me complete surrender – that aspect of being "Reckless" for Him. I hope that listeners can hear that calling on their own lives, and go after it whole-heartedly. I want it to be an encouragement to trust God and do what he says, no matter the cost!

    —Jeremy Camp, Worship Leader

Lastly, Jeremy Camp was asked the question in the same interview with Worship Leader that "How does being reckless describe surrendering your life to Christ?"

    Reckless started as a word that kept being embedded in my mind, so I started to look up its meaning. I found that it means doing something without regards for the consequences. It occurred to me that "Reckless" is a lot like true faith. When I step out in faith, no matter the circumstance, I know that God will take care of me. One of the biblical examples of living reckless for Christ that came to mind was Paul. In 2 Corinthians chapter 4, Paul returned to Lystra after being stoned for witnessing to people in the city because He knew the Lord called him to go back. In [Acts] 20:23-24, [Paul] writes, "I only know that in every city the Holy Spirit warns me that prison and hardships are facing me. However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God's grace.' Paul served the Lord with all his heart. He knew that he was going to face trials and persecution, but God had placed a call on his life and wanted him to surrender his heart to the Lord. My desire, and the message in this song, is to completely surrender everything to God. I want to be able to do what God calls me to do without worrying. That's being sold out [reckless] for Christ. I don't want to miss out on the fullness of what God has for me, so when God calls me, I want to be willing to go!
    —Jeremy Camp, Worship Leade
