Ok, so you know how most kids/teenagers/co-eds doodle pictures in their notes when they're bored in class? Yeah, I definitely practiced my printing and cursive and wrote out song lyrics that were going through my head and distracting me from class. Weird, I know. But I really love music! Have you ever noticed how songs seem to convey exactly what you want to say exactly the way you want to say it? Happens to me all the time! And to be honest, I think that is how the Holy Spirit works when he intercedes for us before God--he communicates in our hearts what our words cannot. When we are stuck in prayer, the Holy Spirit is praying for us on our behalf--how cool is that!? Well, actually, I think it's more like music; more like singing to perfectly capture what we want to say, how we need to say it.
Pretty dang cool if you ask me...
SO, this song just came through my shuffle mode and I love it, I love it, I love it! So tell me what you think :)
"Curl Up and Die" by Relient K
I don't like the steps I took
To get to look
Into your deepest feelings
I don't like the place I'm in
Headspace within the hardwood and the ceiling
Cause if I'm restless
Then why do I?
I want nothing but to rest my soul
And I don't get this and I know why
You see sometimes things are just beyond control
But I don't mind
But I'm not surprised to find that you do
I'm not surprised to find that you do
I know you do
And I feel fine
But I know the same does not apply to you
I know the same does not apply to you
So I guess that I'll curl up and die, too.
Clinging to the remnants of perfection
Like most do after they break it
Not knowing which direction is the correct one
Do I discard or remake it?
Cause if I don't know then I don't know
But I may know someone that knows me more than I
And if I somehow could rest this soul
Maybe control could find its way back to my life
But I don't mind
You see I know that I have done all this to you
Yeah I'll curl up with you
Until I die with you [3x]
Yeah I'll curl up with you yeah my baby, yeah my darlin'
Until I die with you...
