[ORIGINAL] I Don’t Speak Greek, But If I Did Would It Translate To This?

Continuing to Weekend22 is another one! Originally I was going to call this “The 7th Roman Chapter”..but its probably too serious? But then again, these are serious words and a serious topic (Romans is a really serious book), reflecting on the concept of sin, and the addictions toward filling our evil desires… And if Paul didn’t write in Greek, oops!

Lyrics:

I hate what I do, and I do what I hate.
Its like an addiction, I need my fix…I need it, I want it, I crave it; its killing me, killing me, killing me, killing…

Wretched man I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? (The) I AM.

I try to do whats right, but it always ends up wrong.
It feels like I’m in a fight, and I’m already gone.

Its like an endless downward spiral and I can’t shake it.
Like we were on a trail, I slipped and fell; can You, can You find me?
Because I’m tired, and weak, and unworthy to be brought back to where Your glory resides.
I should die.

[ORIGINAL] A Test Gone So Horribly Wrong Now There’s Nothing Left

This song was written back in December 2009. I didn’t want to record it until now (and especially not when certain events were happening), and hopefully its a treat for everyone as Weekend22 approaches! This is the first of 3 originals coming out in time for the weekend.

Could this be one of my longest song titles yet? Probably. We’ll have to wait and see. Of course, this is nowhere close to Sufjan Stevens caliber.

Lyrics

I don’t know what went wrong, I thought I had found the one.
I thought everything was right, but I guess I messed up that night.
It doesn’t help that I didn’t remember how she looked before December.

I’ll learn to love again…
You’ll take my heart and rebuild it for the one who deserves it.

But naught all is lost; I learned things that had to be taught.

…but thats impossible within this realm?
And as Emery says in their song, “you’re just a disguise” of the one who’s waiting for me…

A test gone so horribly wrong…now there’s nothing left (for the better?).
