The following are lyrics of a song called “I Know the Feeling”, by one of my favorite bands, The Classic Crime. To me this song addresses the journey of life and how we all need the love of Christ to flow through our lives constantly. I love the passion that is displayed throughout the song’s poetic lyrics. Especially the lyrics that are highlighted in italic below.

Our hearts are worth more than we may feel in the difficult times in life. Sometimes we take the paths in life that appear to lead to satisfaction, but only lead to sorrow and pain. That’s where the love of Christ will sustain us, if we would only allow it to change us. If we surrender our lives to Jesus, we will never be alone, and it will be a joy to wake up for another day that God has set out for you! Though, that doesn’t always mean that everyday will be easy. When you have Life eternal to look toward, the things you invest your time in during this life will take on more meaning. As Christians, this world isn’t our home, it’s a short journey that God has given us, along with the privilege of Him using us to reach out to others.

I Know The Feeling

Song: I Know the Feeling
Artist: The Classic Crime
Album: Albatross

I know it cuts you inside every time that you try
To take a pathway in life that leaves you so un-obliged
Every promise is lies, every smile makes you cry
Leaves you so un-alive, so un-alive

I wish I could take the fall maybe by that I could solve
The problems we’re all having
It’s been a while since you’ve felt like you’ve been home
Your life’s just flesh and bone

Your heart is worth more than you know
The one thing that hurts more than your life
Is to wake up one more time alone
It’s to wake up one more time alive

So take us in, we’ll stop you dead
We’ll show you something you won’t ever forget
This life’s a road, no place is home
My heart’s a hole that needs to constantly be filled with love

This time it’s all that I’ve got
Words hit the page like gunshots
My stomach’s left in a knot
My pride is left here to rot

It’s been a while since I’ve felt this restless
By definition it’s depressing but I’m alright
It kills to wake up one more time alone
It kills to wake up one more time alive

So take us in, we’ll stop you dead
We’ll show you something you won’t ever forget
This life’s a road, no place is home
My heart’s a hole that needs to constantly be filled with love

I know the feeling of being all alone
So let’s drink to the fact that we’re not
I know the feeling of being all alone
So let’s drink to the fact that we’re not

So take us in, we’ll stop you dead
We’ll show you something you won’t ever forget
This life’s a road, no place is home
My heart’s a hole that needs to constantly be filled with love

The song “Not Even Tired” is by Justin McRoberts, who I’ve mentioned in my previous post. He has several songs that display so much emotion, meaning, and Truth! He says some things in the live version of the song that all Christians should hear. I have posted a link below to the live version. I hope that this post offers encouragement or inspiration to anyone who might need it! 🙂

Song: Not Even Tired
Artist: Justin McRoberts
Album: “Trust”

Circumstantial me, like a shaking weed
Blown about, pushed around

So it is again, on my face I land
Fallen down, crying out

Is there strength in me upon which my heart can call?
Is there anything at all?

Cause I’m not leaving
I’m not even tired yet
I’m still breathing
And I’m staying ‘till I can’t

In my strength I said
Until I was dead and gone that I would always stand
And weather every punch they land

Is there strength in me to fulfill these words?
And to stand although it hurts?

I have learned that this world will not change because of me
So I’ll be the change I long to see
