Songs | Poems

I got tagged by Chris to post my favorite songs that could also be poems. Here are some of my favorites:

Shadowfeet by Brooke Fraser
Walking, stumbling
On these shadowfeet
Toward home
A land that I’ve never seen
I am changing
Less and less asleep
Made of different stuff than when I began
And I have sensed it all along:
Fast approaching is the day

(I would’ve liked to use all Brooke Fraser songs, but I figured you guys might enjoy some variety.)

I Gotta Find Peace of Mind by Lauryn Hill

They say it’s impossible
But I know it’s possible
To finally be in love
And know real the meaning of
A lasting relationship
Not based on ownership
I trust every part of You
‘Cause all that You say You do


Kiss the River by Victory Fellowship

I still remember
Falling to the floor and now I
I often wonder
How I ever dared to
Let You go
Even closer
Closer than the air around me
Underneath my skin

(Sorry, no video.)

One More Try by George Michael

There are things
That I don’t want to learn
And the last one I had
Made me cry

None But Jesus by Hillsong

In the quiet
In the stillness I know
That You are God
In the secret
Of Your presence I know
There I am restored

When You call I won’t refuse
Each new day I’ll choose

I Got Soul by Eric B and Rakim

It’s been a long time
I shouldn’ta left you
Without a strong rhyme to step to
Think of how many ‘Ric’s shows you slept through
Time’s up
Sorry I kept you

(This is one of those back-in-the-day rhymes I still remember the lyrics to!)

There are so many more I’d love to do, but this is making my brain hurt much more than I thought it would.

Who’s on deck? So Supercilious and Saviore, along with Snowjunkie and Odd Ln. And I think Nikki might like this one too!
