Lyrics

I tried--for hours--to find and/or create a way for you to be able to listen to these songs, but I had to settle on clips (if you click the link, scroll to the song title and hit the "Preview" button). Whether you choose to sample or not, enjoy the lyrics. I have.

Waterdeep

And

I am haunted by my love for comparison
My fascination with a single common theme
And I am hounded by the fear that I might be losing it
Slipping from reality into dream
When my mind is muddled by the way it seems to work
I start looking for just one connecting Force
Someone to assure me we that didn't lose the war today
That the battle's General's still riding on his horse
In the mornings when I pray, I've often come to You with dreams
Little bits of power that I can't comprehend
And sometimes I can keep my eyes unclosed for long enough
To see the blowing of a distant steady Wind
The distance doesn't take too long for You to cover it
And when You reach me, You just blow these things apart
You clear the crowd that's gathered 'round the crisis of my soul
And whisper to my suffocating heart

And is the juice of the joints of the motion of life
And is the love that is between God and his beautiful wife
And has two hands and two feet and a long, lovely side
And rose three days after he was crucified

So You're the Force of gravity that I feel pulling at my feet
You're the Fuel at the center of the sun
And, it's your Ghost that fills the atmosphere with what we need to breathe
And, everything I've ever wondered, You're the one
Both my hands are stained with blood
And both my lips are stained with tears
From when I kissed the widow of the man I killed
And, yet You're asking me to swallow Your forgiveness here today
You say the bond required for my pardon's been fulfilled
And is the juice of the joints of the motion of life
And is the love that is between God and his beautiful wife
And has two hands and two feet and a long, lovely side
And rose three days after he was crucified

Obsession
What can I do with my obsession,
With the things I cannot see?
Is it madness in my being,
Is it the wind that moves the trees?
Sometime you’re further than the moon
Sometimes you’re closer than my skin
And you surround me like a winter fog
You’ve come and burned me with a kiss
And my heart burns
For you
And my heart burns
For you
And I’m so filthy with my sin
I carry pride like a disease
You know I’m stubborn Lord, and I’m longing to be close
You burn me deeper than I know
And I feel lonely without hope
And I feel desperate without vision
Wrap around me like a winter coat
You come and free me like a bird
And my heart burns
For you
You
And my heart burns
For you
My love for you
My heart for you
My life for you
All I have for you...
Love for you

I Miss You
Put down your paper plate
Come to the table made
Deep blue china
Found on the table by the wine
So fine

Well it brings out flavor
Like You bring out color in life

Oh, I miss You so
The feel of forever
Oh, that taste I know
It hurts to remember

Unfortunately high
Ironically dissatisfied
I miss you
I miss you
I miss you

Oh, I miss you so
The feel of forever
Oh, that taste I know
It hurts to remember

I had a fleeting thought this morning
And I mentioned You today
It breaks my heart just to know You in part
And not to be with You where You are

Oh, I miss you so
The feel of forever
Oh, that taste I know
It hurts to remember

Oh, I miss you so

Pray
I will pray for you now for you have been my faithful friends
While the road we walk is difficult indeed
I could not ask for more than what you’ve already been
Only that you would say these prayers for me

May your heart break enough that compassion enters in
May your strength all be spent upon the weak
All the castles and crowns you build and place upon your head
May they all fall, come crashing down around your feet

May you find every step to be harder than the last
So your character grows greater each stride
May your company be of humble insignificance
May your weakness be your only source of pride

What you do unto others may it all be done to you
May you meet the one who made us
And see him smile when life is through

May your blessings be many but not what you hoped they’d be
And when you look upon the broken
May mercy show you what you could not see

May you never be sure of any plans you desire
But you’d learn to trust the plan he has for you
May your passions be tried and tested in the holy fire
May you fight with all your life for what is true

I have prayed for you now all of my dear and faithful friends
But what I wish is more than I could ever speak
As the way wanders on I’ll long to see you once again
Until then, would you say these prayers for me?
Oh that you would pray for me.

And & Obsession are two of my favorite songs.

I would like to hear the other two.

I remember hearing "Obsession" for the first time at University Baptist Church at the beginning of Freshman year. I had never heard it before. I loved it right away.

Did Crowder write the song or is it a Delirious song? I think it is Delirious originally...but I heard it by Crowder first.
