sunday song


Our favorite singer/songwriter Andrew Peterson released a new album Friday.  Much to our dismay we were not able to go to the release concert due to previous plans but that disappointment can't take anything away from the beauty of these new songs and the way they have already pierced my heart. 

A good writer writes things that touch your heart, a great writer writes things that change your heart.  AP is a great writer whose words hold so much Truth that you can't listen without feeling God speaking to you, into whatever struggle, confusion, or joyous event in your life and softening your heart to His words, His promises, His will.  

Listen, and repeat.  Often.


We Will Survive
Andrew Peterson

Do you remember how we used to drive 
Over the mountain and down to the river bend 
Where the ghosts of the valley all haunt the tracks 

The highway calls your stories back again
Oh, Jamie, I'm all alone out here
And all I used to know is in the wind

And now
I don't recognize a thing
I need a brand new song to sing

So tell me the story I still need to hear
Tell me we're gonna make it out alive again
I need to know there's nothing left to fear
There's nothing left to hide
So will you look me in the eye
And say we will survive

Someday the truth's gonna lay us bare
We're gonna raise a glass to the past and say
It's only when the straight line breaks and heals a little crooked
That you ever see the grace
Well I had to find a better place
Maybe the bend in the river's the only way

And I'm lost
Got all these voices in my head
I need some hope up there instead

So tell me the story I still need to hear
Tell me about the sun that's gonna rise again
I need to know there's nothing left to fear
There's nothing left to hide
So will you look me in the eye
Say we will survive
We will survive

Do you remember how I used to say
Love is a fire and it's gonna burn us up
To make the space for grace to grow
Now it feels like love has called my bluff

So tell me the story I still need to hear
Tell me about the love that never dies

Tell me the story I still need to hear
Tell me we're gonna make it out alive again
I need to know there's nothing left to fear
There's nothing left to hide
So when you look me in the eye
I know we will survive
We will survive
I know we will survive
I know we will survive
