Campfires and Masquerades Lyrics

Let me know your thoughts on this song’s lyrics. 🙂 I love the part that says, “Those who fear the grave, never find the truth”

Campfires and Masquerades
by Jason Upton

I remember a story
A story of a little boy
The story of a mother’s child
The story of all

I remember the middle of the darkness
Reaching out for a hand to hold
Reaching out for anything
That will lead me back home

I’m still here
I’m still waiting for you
After all these years

I remember the shadows
On the walls of my memory
They more around like reality
In this prison that we’ve made

And I remember the first born sunrise
Couldn’t stand to open my eyes
Like a blind man wandering
On the edge of his grave

I’m still here
I’m still waiting for you
After all these years
After all these years

Campfires and Masquerades
Come and go like cheap parades
When nothing’s lost and nothings’ changed
We like it that way

Our politicians have to lie
Because if they opened up our eyes
We’d kill them just like the others who tried
To pull us out of this cave

Maybe that’s why we’re so shaken
When our questions have the courage to
Come and drag us from our fiction
Those who fear the grave
Never find the truth

Everyday begins at midnight
If we’re ever gonna see the sun rise
Somebody’s gotta wake up
Before the morning comes

Somebody’s gotta wake up
Gotta wake up
Somebody’s gotta wake up
Before the morning comes…

Not So Far Down the Road

Not so far down the road
I would want to sing like this
To sing and make the seams of a stubborn heart snap
To sing a song that makes the flat line jump
To sing the life out
To sing until the gasping could breathe
To pulverize the immovable doubt
To change the game
And send a wave rushing in
And lift the tendons of your suffered heart
Into a pieced together newness that once again can beat
without gasping, but with a strength that’s no longer shaken by the hurricane

Your Love Is Like A River

Your Love Is Like A River
By Third Day
from the album Miracle

Your love is like a river flowing from my heart
Your love is like a river flowing from my heart

When this cruel world tears us apart
Your love is like a river flowing from my heart
When sharpened words have left their scars
Your love is like a river flowing from my heart

And it’s overflowing and showing us all
How deep and how wide is Your love
It never stops, it rages on
Your love is like a river flowing from my heart

When I am tired and so afraid
Your love is like a fire that will light my way
When darkness falls and my vision fades
You love is like a fire that will light my way

And it’s always burning and stirring my soul
To know You and love You much more
It never stops or ever fades
Your love is like a fire that will light my way

Oh, it’s never gonna stop
Oh, it’s flowing from my heart
Oh, it’s never gonna fade away
Your fire will light my way

When all my strength and hope is gone
Your love is like a rock that I am standing on

Oh, it’s never gonna stop
Oh, it’s flowing from my heart
Oh, it’s never gonna fade away

Your love is like a river flowing from my heart
Your love is like a fire that will light my way
Your love is like a rock that I am standing on
Your love is like a river flowing from my heart

Longing for the New Jerusalem by Matt Gilman

♫ BEHOLD the Tabernacle of God will be with man and He will be our God and we will be His people… but until that day I’m LONGING for the New Jerusalem! I love the day of Your appearing. I wanna hasten Your return. The Spirit and the Bride say “Come!” ♫

Last night, I was weeping before God, at the thought of how much I still do not know Him. I thought that I am intimate with God but I was just struck last night with the realization of how tainted and limited my knowledge of who He is is. Thus, I do not know how to begin to approach the thought of His return. I want to know Him more. I want to long for Him with the purest heart. But am I really READY to meet Him face to face? So I was asking God, God open my eyes, give me the right heart, break my squeaky little box. And He said that the room I have prepared for Him is too small and so He could not enter ‘coz He could not fit inside. To receive Him would require a surrendering of precious comfort zones and prideful knowledge. I feel far from it… from coming to an understanding of who Jesus really is…

Then my friend sent me to a link to this song. And I knew that God is breaking my heart. He wants to break my heart and plough though my rigid thinking. Who is Jesus? What is He like? What will the New Jerusalem be like? I do not completely know or understand, but deep in my spirit I know that He is worth desiring and longing for… that He is everything (oh every good thing) that our aching hearts could ever wish for. He is! He is worth crying out for, “COME!” And He is the very one and the only one who can satisfy each and every longing in our hearts.

Separation

I can’t believe I let her take you away. I thought it will be just for a day or a night that you’ll be gone. I would not have let you go had I realized that she had no plans of giving you back. It’s been just three days. But it is during silent nights like these when I want to hold you the most. And sing songs with you. Words straight from my belly. Un-borrowed, raw and sudden. But who will sit with me now in the midst of this silence. You’re far away in somebody’s arms.

— Me to my guitar on a Saturday night, 3 days after my friend borrowed it without even conceptualizing a plan on how to return it as soon as possible.

I Wanna Remember (A Song)

credits: flickr: ravynraine

I wanna remember that one time when I saw You
I wanna remember that one time that I heard You speak
I wanna remember those words that changed me ’til forever
I wanna remember, remember, remember

Refrain:
When there was You, and the fire in Your eyes
That changed my course by surprise
There was You and the stillness of Your voice
That shattered my fears away
There was You and Your raging love
That made me Yours forever
Why I’m Yours (2x), I will remember
