Check it…

I wrote and threw this together yesterday.

Partially it was a fun experiment to see what I could do at first blush NOT using guitars (or at least them not sounding like guitars). 

The words are:

Let all creation sing Her praise–to U. Let all the colors bleed to U. Inside my doubt there is faith. And in my silence a song remains. And won’t U carry me away. U spin me round–round in circles. U spin me round–round in circles. Outside my head.”

I Shall Believe…

In the spirit of my friend and fellow blogger, Kevin from Out of the Desert, I’m going to post some song lyrics that prove meaningful in the moment. I guess as Kevin’s latest post and this one show that some things can only be hinted at or seen out of the corner of our eye…poetry, song, art express better than facts and figures, argument and exhausted understandings…

I SHALL BELIEVE by Sheryl Crow

Come to me now
And lay your hands over me
Even if it’s a lie
Say it will be alright
And I shall believe
I’m broken in two
And I know you’re on to me
That I only come home
When I’m so all alone
But I do believe

That not everything is gonna be the way
You think it ought to be
It seems like every time I try to make it right
It all comes down on me
Please say honestly you won’t give up on me
And I shall believe
And I shall believe

Open the door
And show me your face tonight
I know it’s true
No one heals me like you
And you hold the key

Never again
would I turn away from you
I’m so heavy tonight
But your love is alright
And I do believe

That not everything is gonna be the way
You think it ought to be
It seems like every time I try to make it right
It all comes down on me
Please say honestly
You won’t give up on me
And I shall believe
I shall believe
And I shall believe

Jesus as teachernaked, poor I come to u. casting all my cares on u. master, won’t u teach me your ways? wretched, blind I run to u. pressing on towards knowing u. master won’t u teach me your ways?

take me on! take me on! i gladly lay down my life–following u.

touch my eyes and I will see. touch my lips and I will speak. master won’t u teach me your ways?

take me on! take me on! i gladly lay down my life–following u. following u.
