about

I wrote this song on the night of November 7, 2014. It seemingly came all at once; I had the whole thing in less than 2 hours.

I have previously not been much into songwriting, but my musings that night manifested themselves in this way. I don't feel I can take that much credit for it.

lyrics

Sometimes it's hard
To find a new metaphor
To say the same old cliché
Cause whatever I'm saying
Has been said before
And it's hard.

I could call it a battle
I could call it a March
I could call it a road long and cold
There's a light in the distance
He's waiting there for me
But it's hard.

Jesus he told us
That it wouldn't be easy
And boy, don't I know that it's true.
Cause easy was raising a man from the dead
But being humble seems harder to do

And it's hard
To get out of this mess
And it's hard
To drop my pride and confess
Though I know all the lingo and all the clichés
It means nothing if he's not in control.

Jesus came down to save me
But what does that mean?
Does my life really show that I know?
If it don't change my behavior
Then it don't change a thing
And it's hard.

Cause when I open my eyes
And see my own helplessness
It makes all the difference, you see
Because the lingo is lost in the light of his grace
The clichés have new meaning to me.


And it's hard
To get out of this mess
And it's hard
To drop my pride and confess
Though I know all the lingo and all the cliches
It means nothing if he's not in control.

And there's a light in the distance
He's waiting there for me
But it's hard...
