Been looking for this song for quite some time now. Thank God I find this again without meaning to. 🙂 I just like the lyrics of this song and I am sharing it with you.
I am thinking it’s a sign that the freckles
In our eyes are mirror images and when
We kiss they’re perfectly aligned
And I have to speculate that God himself
Did make us into corresponding shapes like
Puzzle pieces from the clay
And true, it may seem like a stretch, but
Its thoughts like this that catch my troubled
Head when you’re away when I am missing you to death
When you are out there on the road for
Several weeks of shows and when you scan
The radio, I hope this song will guide you home
They will see us waving from such great
Heights, ‘come down now,’ they’ll say
But everything looks perfect from far away,
‘come down now,’ but we’ll stay…
I tried my best to leave this all on your
Machine but the persistent beat it sounded
Thin upon listening
And that frankly will not fly. You will hear
The shrillest highs and lowest lows with
The windows down when this is guiding you home
For some reason I find myself reading this verse again:
Song of Solomon 8:6
Good News Translation (GNT)
6 Close your heart to every love but mine;
hold no one in your arms but me.
Love is as powerful as death;
passion is as strong as death itself.
It bursts into flame
and burns like a raging fire.
I hope whoever God gives me as a partner that God will protect his heart. That he will close his heart to every love but mine and that he would hold no one in his arms but me. Love is jealous and passionate. That’s how powerful love is. Imagine how God must be feeling towards us. 🙂 That is why He doesn’t want us to have other gods but Him.
But when it comes to romantic love, this is what I ask of God:
Song of Solomon 8:4
New Century Version (NCV)
4 Women of Jerusalem,
promise not to awaken
or excite my feelings of love
until it is ready.
God, I pray that You will hear this prayer. In Jesus’ mighty name. Amen.
