My Fantastic Journey: It’s In The Lyrics

This month I celebrate my 40TH month aboard this fantastic journey that was created especially for me by my Lord & Saviour Jesus Christ. He died on that bloody hunk of wood on that hill so that I could Live Again !  I am forever greatful to be given this second chance at Life !

Over the past 40 months of Living this new Life one of my favourite bands on the radio has been upstate South Carolina’s Eleventyseven. Their songs have been mostly pop and dance oriented with a little bit of punk thrown in for good measure, and their lyrics have been overwhelmingly positive and centered on the Glory Of God. Since 2006 they’ve hit it big with “More Than A Revolution”, “Myspace”, “Nostalgiatopia”, “Love In Your Arms”, “How It Feels (To Be With You)”, and their current smash “Trying”:

Life can feel like a red light screaming ‘Go !’
And everyday means an answer I don’t know.
This world can make you wanna fake it
And nobody wants to face it alone.
It’s hard to shake that feeling that your heart’s not home.

I’m trying to live
Trying to hope
Trying to love
Trying to cope
Life’s a war that few of us survive.
And I’m just trying to make it out alive.

Everyone has a story to be told
And every tongue has a lie it could expose.
This world describes all the treatments
To keep all the secrets you want
We’ve learned how to think
Without our minds turned on.

I’m trying to live
Trying to hope
Trying to love
Trying to cope
Life’s a war that few of us survive.
And I’m just trying to make it out alive.

The pain we go through is what makes us who we are.
And if we hold each other through
The deepest darkest parts.

Then we can live
Then we can hope
Then we can love
Then we can cope
Life is not a jump it’s all a head first dive !

I’m trying to live
Trying to hope
Trying to love
Trying to cope
Life’s a war that few of us survive
And I know we can make it out alive

It’s in the lyrics.

CRANK THIS UP LOUD !!!
