Hope In Love

Archive for the ‘lyrics’ Category

I’ve loved this song for a while, cos it sounds beautiful, and the video is pretty cool…and I have a crush on the two guys in the band…yep, both of them…that’s just how I roll. Anyway, it was only today that I decided to actually listen to the words and try to translate them and actually understand the song…and now I love it even more…that’s if I translated the song correctly (help would be appreciated from any Afrikaans speakers out there.)

===================

Title: Gisteraand
Artist: Dans Dans Lisa
Album: Die gids vir grootword
Year: 2010

Gisteraand het die wêreld vergaan
Vanoggend het ek wakker geword
En ek het steeds bestaan
Ek dink dit was my skuld , ek dink dit was
en die’s my tweede kans

Dit was anders as gewoonlik
Die nag het om die liggies gedans
Almal was vrolik, mense het mekaar verstaan
daar was musiek soos stilte daar was
en dit was mooi en ek was daar

Vanoggend was die mooiste
Alles het meteens bedaar
ek het weer ‘n kans gestaan
soos die son opkom het die reën geval
Word wakker, word wakker,
alles is nog soos dit was en ons is hier

Gisteraand het die wereld vergaan
Gisteraand het die wêreld vergaan
Gisteraand het die wêreld vergaan en ek was daar

Translation:
=======================

Last night the world ended
This morning I woke up
And I still exist (I was still around…)
I think it was my fault, I think it was
and it’s my second chance

It was different than usual
Twas the night the lights danced
Everyone was happy, people understood each other
there was music like there was silence
and it was beautiful and I was there

This morning was the most beautiful
Everything had suddenly calmed down (?)
I had yet another chance
as the sun rises after the rainfall
Awake, awake,
all is as it was and we are here

Last night the world ended
Last night the world ended
Last night the world ended, and I was there

 

Lyrics time…

I read a blog post and an email last week and they both referenced this song…then later I got a link from b-fish to download Josh Garrels’ free album, which is where the song is from…actually, it’s an old hymn, he just re-did it. Anyway, I’m currently reading through Job and…well, I think he would relate to this song…especially that first verse…

Farther along we'll know all about it
Farther along we'll understand why
Cheer up my brothers, live in the sunshine
Well understand this, all by and by

Tempted and tried, I wondered why
The good man died, the bad man thrives
And Jesus cries because he loves em both
Were all cast-aways in need of ropes
Hangin on by the last threads of our hope
In a house of mirrors full of smoke
Confusing illusions Ive seen

Where did I go wrong, I sang along
To every chorus of the song
That the devil wrote like a piper at the gates
Leading mice and men down to their fates
But some will courageously escape
The seductive voice with a heart of faith
While walkin that line back home

So much more to life than weve been told
 Its full of beauty that will unfold
And shine like you struck gold my wayward son
That deadweight burden weighs a ton
Go down into the river and let it run
And wash away all the things youve done
Forgiveness alright

Still I get hard pressed on every side
Between the rock and a compromise
Like the truth and pack of lies fightin for my soul
And Ive got no place left go
Cause I got changed by what Ive been shown
More glory than the world has known
Keeps me ramblin on

Skipping like a calf loosed from its stall
Im free to love once and for all
And even when I fall Ill get back up
For the joy that overflows my cup
Heaven filled me with more than enough
Broke down my levee and my bluff
Let the flood wash me

And one day when the sky rolls back on us
Some rejoice and the others fuss

Cause every knee must bow and tongue confess
That the son of god is forever blessed
His is the kingdom, we're the guests
So put your voice up to the test
Sing Lord, come soon

Title: God Forbid
Artist: Point of Grace
Album: Love, Life, and other Mysteries
Year: 1996

The more I know your power, Lord
The more I’m mindful
How casually we speak and sing your name
How often we have come to you
With no fear or wonder
And called upon you only for what we stand to gain

(chorus)
God, forbid that I find you so familiar
That I think of you as less than who you are
God, forbid that I should speak of you at all
Without a humble reverence in my heart
God forbid!

Lord, I often talk about your love and mercy
How it seems to me your goodness has no end
It frightens me to think that I could take you for granted
Though you’re closer than a brother
You are more than just a friend

(repeat chorus)

You are Father, God almighty
Lord of lords, you’re King of kings
Beyond my understanding
No less than everything

(repeat chorus)

God forbid
God forbid

artist: pink
album: greatest hits…so far!!!
year: 2010

Right right, turn off the lights,
We’re gonna lose our minds tonight,
What’s the deal, yo?

I love when it’s all too much,
5am turn the radio up
Where’s the rock and roll?

Party Crasher,
Penny Snatcher,
Call me up if you want gangsta
Don’t be fancy, just get dancey
Why so serious?

So raise your glass if you are wrong,
In all the right ways,
All my underdogs,
We will never be never be anything but loud
And nitty gritty dirty little freaks
Won’t you come on and come on and raise your glass,
Just come on and come on and raise your glass

Slam slam, oh hot damn
What part of party don’t you understand,
Wish you’d just freak out (freak out already)
Can’t stop, coming in hot,
I should be locked up right on the spot
It’s so on right now (so fuckin on right now)

Party Crasher,
Penny Snatcher,
Call me up if you want gangsta
Don’t be fancy, just get dancey
Why so serious?

So raise your glass if you are wrong,
In all the right ways,
All my underdogs,
We will never be never be anything but loud
And nitty gritty dirty little freaks
Won’t you come on and come on and raise your glass,
Just come on and come on and raise your glass
Won’t you come on and come on and raise your glass,
Just come on and come on and raise your glass

(oh shit my glass is empty, that sucks)

So if you’re too school for cool,
And you’re treated like a fool,
You can choose to let it go
We can always, we can always,
Party on our own

(so raise your) So raise your glass if you are wrong,
In all the right ways,
All my underdogs,
We will never be never be anything but loud
And nitty gritty, dirty little freaks
So raise your glass if you are wrong,
In all the right ways,
All my underdogs,
We will never be never be anything but loud
And nitty gritty, dirty little freaks
Won’t you come on and come on and raise your glass,
Just come on and come on and raise your glass
Won’t you come on and come on and raise your glass,(for me)
Just come on and come on and raise your glass (for me)

Title: Own Way Home
Artist: John Ellis
Album: Come Out Fighting
Year: 2010

It’s been this way since I was a kid
I don’t fit in and I never did
I’ve been carried up high
Been brought down low
Try telling me something I don’t know

I’m a river that flows away from the sea
I get where I’m going eventually
Maybe forgiveness is the best revenge
They’ve got evidence but I’ve got a good defense

I can find my, find my own way, own way home
I can find my, find my own way, own way home

It’s the end of the world and I can’t wait
Too much, too soon, too little, too late
I’ve got my fingers crossed and my lucky charms
This had better not be another false alarm

I can find my, find my own way, own way home
I can find my, find my own way, own way home
I can find my, find my own way, own way home
I junked all the maps when I saw behind the throne
I can find my, find my own way, own way home

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh ….
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh ….

Find my own way home, mmmm
Find my own way
Oh yeah yeah

I am not a tree
I am a rolling stone
I can find my, find my own way, own way home

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh ….
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh ….

Title: Love lead me on
Artist: The Afters
Album: I wish we all could win
Year: 2005

Someday I’m gonna go out to the country
I’ll drive til the highway ends
Chasing after picture perfect sunsets
To take away my breath
I’m tired of living in the city
The world’s got me tied on a string
Wanderlust has overcome me
Like Lewis and Clark I’ll dream
There’s a million different ways to go
Only God can know where I will call my home

Love lead me on
Where no one else has gone
Faith keep me strong
Love lead me on

The open road can be so lonely
I’m longing for someone to love
If only I could share my new surroundings
Open the doors above
There’s a million different ways to go
Only God can know where I will call my home

Love lead me on
Where no one else has gone
Faith keep me strong
Love lead me on

Faith keep me strong
Love lead me home

Title: C.S. Lewis Song
Artist: Brooke Fraser
Album: Albertine
Year:2006

If I find in myself desires nothing in this world can satisfy,
I can only conclude that I was not made for here
If the flesh that I fight is at best only light and momentary,
then ofcourse I’ll feel nude when to where I’m destined I’m compared

[CHORUS]
Speak to me in the light of the dawn
Mercy comes with the morning
I will sigh and with all creation groan as I wait for hope to come for me

Am I lost or just found? On the straight or on the roundabout of the wrong way?
is this a soul that stirs in me, is it breaking free, wanting to come alive?
Cos my comfort would prefer for me to be numb
An avoid the impending birth of who I was born to become

[CHORUS]

[BRIDGE]
For we, we are not long here
Our time is but a breath, so we better breathe it
And I, I was made to live, I was made to love, I was made to know you
Hope is coming for me
Hope, He’s coming
