All That I Can Say

I was poking around some of the several blogs I like to read, and I came upon one which had a song playing on it. At first, it freaked me out (maybe like it's doing for you right now as you're reading this.) I don't recall ever hearing music on this particular blog, so I spent a couple minutes just trying to figure out where it was coming from. I wasn't really paying attention to the lyrics...yet.

I closed out my browser, and the music stopped. Then I opened it up again and went back to that blog page. The song once again started playing. I then started to listen to the lyrics.

Uhhhh...God?

I want to share the lyrics with you. I swear I could have written this song myself. I've also added a playlist feature on my blog so you can hear it for yourself. You know music is a big part of my life, so I'll try to start sharing some songs which are important to me so you can hear them, too. Plus, just as this...ahem...accidental run-in with a song did for me, maybe a song I feature here will do the same for you someday. If you're not able to listen to it right now, the player is over in the right column. You can simply stop or pause the song anytime. When I add songs, you can even click on other ones you may want to hear instead.

Thank you Lord for taking a moment and causing me to stumble upon a song in a place I wouldn't have expected. In doing so, you've done something you didn't have to do. You've reminded me that you're here with me. You cry when I cry. You hurt when I hurt. Thank you for placing this reminder in my path despite my stumbling around...seemingly aimlessly. Even when I feel aimless, you are there at every turn.

All I Can Say - David Crowder Band
Lord I'm tired
So tired from walking
And Lord I'm so alone
And Lord the dark
Is creeping in
Creeping up
To swallow me
I think I'll stop
Rest here a while

And this is all that I can say right now
And this is all that I can give (2x)

That's my everything

And didn't You see me cry'n?
And didn't You hear me call Your name?
Wasn't it You I gave my heart to?
I wish You'd remember where you sat it down

And this is all that I can say right now
I know it's not much
And this is all that I can give
That's my everything (2x)

I didn't notice You were standing here
I didn't know that
That was You holding me
I didn't notice You were cry'n too
I didn't know that
That was You washing my feet

And this is all that I can say right now
I know it's not much
And this is all that I can give
That's my everything (2x)
