Anyone else go extremely insane when all you want to do is wake up and hear a great song playing on the radio, and while searching through the stations all it is is ads or talk about politics, the possibility of winning concert tickets or the weather?
Honestly, like play a song already, am I right? This week, I thought I would share my top three songs. These songs, when I hear them, make me feel something. Of course, each one is different and means something different to me, but all in all, these are my top three jams:
- "It Happens" — Sugarland.
I'll be right back going down to Wally World
Knew that truck the moment it hit me
Out stepped my ex and his new girl
Sorry 'bout you neck baby
Boring the same old worn out blah blah story
There's no good explanation for it at all
No complicated meaning
Ain't no need to over think it
Let go laughing
Life don't go quite like you planned it
We try so hard to understand it
The irrefutable, indisputable
- "Just Be Held" — Casting Crowns.
This song has become a family favorite. As several of my readers are aware, it has seemed our family has been hit from every direction with not the best of luck. I would dare to bet we have gone through much more than your average couple in just 35 years.
But, something I have learned and am continuing to implement is sometimes it is OK to be the one who just needs to be held and surrender all the stress, joys and duties up to God.
Everybody needs you strong
But life hits you out of nowhere
And barely leaves you holding on
Chained by your control
There's freedom in surrender
Lay it down and let it go
You're not alone, stop holding on and just be held
Your world's not falling apart, it's falling into place
I'm on the throne, stop holding on and just be held
Just be held, just be held."
- "Backseat" — Kip Moore.
Everything she was, was everything I wanted
We were both willing, but still a little guarded
She smiled that smile, that's where it all started
Lights off on a backstreet
I showed her and then she showed me
Right there, right there in the backseat
Yeah in the backseat."
