LIF

I'm naming my weekly lyrical day Lyrics I Feel = LIF :)
This week I chose a song from the latest Rob Thomas CD. I often hear songs, secular, popular, broadway, country, pop, blues, whatever...that with the simple change of a word or two can mean something incredibly spiritual. Actually there are several on this CD that resonate with me but this one needs the least modifing(none really) to make it a message of import. It seems to me that God's voice can be heard in many forms for those who have ears to hear... I'm sure Rob had no idea that the voice of God would come through in his work but...there it is...if you indeed have ears to hear. :) I hope you can hear the voice of Jesus speaking to you in the words of this song.

"Ever The Same"
Rob Thomas

We were drawn from the weeds
We were brave like soldiers
Falling down under the pale moonlight
You were holding to me
Like a someone broken
And I couldn't tell you but I'm telling you now
Just let me hold you while you're falling apart
Just let me hold you and we'll both fall down

Fall on me
Tell me everything you want me to be
Forever with you forever in me
Ever the same

We would stand in the wind
We were free like water flowing down
Under the warmth of the sun
Now it's cold and we're scared
And we've both been shaken
Hey, look at us
Man, this doesn't need to be the end
Just let me hold you while you're falling apart
Just let me hold you and we'll both fall down

Fall on me
Tell me everything you want me to be
Forever with you
Forever in me
Ever the same
Call on me
I'll be there for you and you'll be there for me
Forever it's you
Forever in me
Ever the same

You may need me there
To carry all your weight
But you're no burden I assure
You tide me over
With a warmth I'll not forget
But I can only give you love

Fall on me tell me everything you want me to be
Forever with you
Forever in me
Ever the same
Call on me
I'll be there for you and you'll be there for me
Forever it's you
Forever in me
Ever the same

Forever with you
Forever in me
Ever the same

I like the words that say "You were holding onto me like a someone broken" cause I am a "someone broken". I am a messed up, lost person who desperately needs Him to catch me when I fall and hold me when I'm losing it. He is reminding me that this is what He does and that I am not a burden to Him. He wants to be necessary to me. ...I am forever in Him...... Yeah, I hear that voice. :)

What do you hear?
