Fireflight – Stay Close

I wanna know You
there’s so much at stake
Can’t face the memories
they bend me till I break
Hiding from the past
but it’s eating me alive
can’t block it out when it’s comin’ from inside

Every turn leads me to a new dead end
lost again
I’m screaming your name

Come close Come close
and call my name
how can you turn your back on me when you know my pain
stay close stay close
light up the night
save me from the part of me that’s begging to die

Precious denial
a stone to break my back
the chains I carry won’t cut me any slack
imprisoned by fear with no room for my heart
my only hope
only You can heal the scars

Every turn leads me to a new dead end
lost again
I’m screaming your name

(Chorus)

Stay by my side
if you leave me I will die
Stay by my side
if you leave me I will die
Stay by my side
if you hold me, I will fly
if you hold me I will fly
will you hold me

(Chorus)

Come close come close
(come close)
how can you turn your back on me when you know my pain
(when you know my pain)
stay close stay close
light up the night
save me from the part of me that’s begging to die

Tonight – TobyMac

Great pump up song.

Hey!
Everytime I try to go in alone I get shut down,
Locked up and held captive in the clutches of my down
We go back, we go forth,
We go back
I’m sick with vertigo
Weary of my ways, my days
My lips are frozen
I wanna feel a new day
(There’s gotta be more than this)
I wanna live a new way
(There’s gotta be more)
I wanna feel a new day
(There’s gotta be more)
I wanna live a new way
(There’s just gotta be more)

Right here, right now
Under the stars, I promise you my heart

Cause it starts tonight!

We wanna rise,
We wanna touch the other side
(It starts tonight!)
We wanna soar
We wanna reach right out for more
(Cause it starts tonight!)
We wanna rise,
We wanna touch the other side
(It starts tonight)
We wanna soar,
We wanna reach right out for more
(Cause it starts tonight)
Tonight tonight
Tonight tonight tonight
Tonight

Can’t feel like any night before
Under the sky full of stars
With hearts that want more
(Tonight)
Like the rhythm no dam can hold
Bein’ drivin by a source overflowin our souls
(Tonight)
Won’t be like any night we have seen
It changes everything (e-e-e-e-everything)

Right here right now
Under the stars
I promise you my heart

Cause it starts tonight!

We wanna rise
We wanna touch the other side
(It start tonight!)
We wanna soar
We wanna reach right out for more,
(Cause it starts tonight!)
We wanna rise,
We wanna touch the other side
(It starts tonight!)
We wanna soar,
We wanna reach right out for more
(Cause it starts tonight!)
Tonight tonight
Tonight tonight tonight

Tonight

So let us seize this night
Let us make off great
It’s on like the break of dawn

So let us seize this night
Let us make our flight
It’s on like the break of dawn

Tonight
Tonight

Cause it starts tonight!…

Cause it starts tonight!

I wanna feel a new day
I wanna live a new way
(It starts tonight)
I wanna feel a new day
I wanna live a new way
(We don’t wanna fall tonight!)
We wanna rise
We wanna touch the other side
(We wanna shine tonight!)
We wanna soar
We wanna reach right out for more
(We don’t wanna fall tonight)
We wanna rise
We wanna touch the other side
(We wanna shine tonight!)
We wanna soar,
We wanna reach right out for more
(We don’t wanna fall tonight)
Tonight tonight

(We wanna shine tonight!)
Tonight tonight

Cause it starts tonight!

Lecrae – Background


Chorus.
I could play the background.
I could play the background.
Cause I know sometimes I get in the way.
So won’t You take the lead, lead, lead, lead, lead.
So won’t You take the lead, lead, lead, lead, lead.
And I can play the background, the background.
And You can take the lead.

Verse 1
It’s evident You run the show, so let me back down.
You take the leading role, and I’ll play the background.
I know I miss my cues, know I forget my lines
I’m sticking to Your script, and I’m reading all Your signs.
I don’t need my name in lights.
I don’t need a starring role.
And why gain the whole wide world, if I’m just gon’ loose my soul.
And my ways ain’t purified, I’ll live according to Your Word.
I can’t endure this life without Your wisdom being heard.
So word to every dancer for a pop star,
Cause we all play the background, but mine’s a Rock Star.
Yeah. So if you need me I’ll be stage right.
Prayin’ the whole world will start embracing stage fright.
So let me fall back and stop giving my suggestions
Cause when I follow my obsessions I end up confessing.
That I’m not that impressive, matter of fact I’m who I are.
A trail of star dust leading to the Superstar.

Chorus.

Verse 2
I had a dream that I was captain of my soul.
I was master of my fate, lost control, and then I sank.
So I don’t want to take the lead
Cause I’m prone to make mistakes.
All these folks that follow me gon’ end up in the wrong place.
So, just let me shadow You, and just let me trace Your lines.
Matter of fact just take my pen.
Here, You create my rhymes.
Cause if I do this by myself I’m scared that I’ll succeed.
And no longer trust in You, cause I only trust in me.
And see, that’s how you end up headed to destruction.
Paving a road to nowhere. Pour your life out for nothing.
You pulled my card, I’m bluffing
You know what’s in my hand.
Me, I just roll to trust You, You cause the dice to land.
I’m in control of nothing. Follow You at any cost.
Some call it sovereign will, all I know is You the boss.
And man I’m so at ease. I’m so content.
I play the background like it’s an instrument.

Chorus.

Bridge
I know I’m safest when I’m in Your will and trust Your word.
And I know I’m dangerous when I trust myself, my vision blurred.
And I ain’t got no time to play life’s foolish games.
Got plenty aims, but do they really glorify Your name?
And it’s a shame the way I want to do these things for You, yet,
Don’t even cling to You. Take time to sit and glean from You.
It seems that You were patient in my ignorance.
If ignorance is bliss, its cause she never heard of this.

Chorus. 2x

Tuesday’s Tunes

I am so happy I accidentally named this “Tuesday’s Tunes” instead of “Tuesday’s Tune.” This past week I have been blessed with so much new music its crazy! To pick just one song to share would have been impossible. I could easily share ten songs with you this tuesday, however I doubt anyone would actually go through and listen to all ten. So I managed to narrow it down to just two, learning of one of them just yesterday. Enjoy!

Family Force 5 is my personal all time favorite band. Their lyrics do not always have  a direct correlation to Christ. For that many Christians often diss them. Some of their lyrics may be questionable though. What I love about Family Force 5 is their music is all about partying for Jesus. I have seen them live many times and every time they always share their love for Jesus. They use their music to reach both Christians and non-Christians. I just love the fact that I can listen to their music and dance/party for Jesus in the process.

This song however is not one of those dance around party songs. It’s a slow song about us running away from God, but He is always there for us. He is our Superhero.
