A Wrinkle On Your Forehead 


Yesterday is a wrinkle on your forehead…..

This is your life…
Are you who you want to be?
…..Is it everything you’ve dreamed it would be? 

Today for Song Sunday we are going back a few years to a classic song by Switchfoot, This Is Your Life.  

As you listen to the song and really hear the lyrics…. Ask yourself…. 


Are You Who You Want To Be?

Is life everything you dreamed it could be? 


If not…… Then start making steps to change! 

Yesterday is dead and over….. 

Just a wrinkle on your forehead.   


Make a plan now for a better tomorrow!

Lyrics:

Yesterday is a wrinkle on your forehead


Yesterday is a promise that you’ve broken


Don’t close your eyes


Don’t close your eyes



This is your life and today is all you’ve got now
And today is all you’ll ever have


Don’t close your eyes


Don’t close your eyes



This is your life


Are you who you want to be?


This is your life


Are you who you want to be?



This is your life


Is it everything you’ve dreamed it would be

When the world was younger


And you had everything to lose?



Yesterday is a kid in the corner


Yesterday is dead and over



And this is your life


Are you who you want to be?


This is your life


Are you who you want to be?


This is your life

Is everything you’ve dreamed that it would be

When the world was younger

And you had everything to lose?


Don’t close your eyes

Don’t close your eyes

Don’t close your eyes

Don’t close your eyes


This is your life

Are you who you want to be?

This is your life

Are you who you want to be? Yeah
This is your life

Are you who you want to be, who you want to be? Yeah

This is your life

Are you who you want to be, who you want to be?


This is your life

Is it everything you dreamed that it would be

When the world was younger

And you had everything to lose?

You had everything to lose?

True Believers 

  

We are one heartbeat in the darkness

We are one lasting answered prayer

We are one unbroken promise

And we are two, true believers


We are one before our God in Heaven

Oh, we are one road when the going gets rough

We are one now and forever

We are one name, one life, one flame

What beautiful lyrics!  

Such a true testament for love.  
As I reflect on it being 20 years I have been with my husband and soon we will be celebrating 19 years married, I can appreciate these sentiments.  

I have been listening to some older secular music lately  and this is one that I love. I am a huge Hootie fan! Oh how I loved Hootie & The Blowfish. Their album “cracked rear view” was one I could play over and over. I remember it being one of our favorites.   

Fast forward many years and lead singer, aka Hootie, Darius Rucker ventured out to do a solo country album and he did not disappoint his fans. His rendition of Wagon Wheel that the popular show Duck Dynasty and their cast made a huge hit was great, but this is my favorite.  

So for this weeks #SongSunday we are going country. We are remembering love, life, memories, perseverance and commitment.  
Be a True Believer!

“True Believers” Darius Rucker 

Lyrics:

Church bells ringing on our wedding day

Climbed in that limo and rode away

Guess you’ll always hear some people say,

Man, they’re never gonna make it.
We settled in and we settled down

In this quiet little seaside town

You are the rock I built my world around

And life will never break it
We are one heartbeat in the darkness

We are one lasting answered prayer

We are one unbroken promise

And we are two, true believers
It wasn’t easy getting here today

Sometimes you stumbled or I lost my way

But every roadblock was a chance to say;

Take my hand I’m here beside you.
We worked and made it through the toughest parts

Now every day is another chance to start

To look around and see where we are

It’s where we were trying to get to
We are one heartbeat in the darkness

We are one lasting answered prayer

We are one unbroken promise

And we are two, true believers
We are one before our God in Heaven

Oh, we are one road when the going gets rough

We are one now and forever

We are one name, one life, one flame
We are one heartbeat in the darkness

We are one lasting answered prayer

We are one unbroken promise

And we are two, true believers

We are two, true believers

Holding On! 

  

The broken clock is a comfort, it helps me sleep tonight

Maybe it can stop tomorrow from stealing all my time

I am here still waiting though I still have my doubts

I am damaged at best, like you’ve already figured out
I’m falling apart, I’m barely breathing

With a broken heart that’s still beating

In the pain there is healing

In your name I find meaning

So I’m holdin’ on, I’m holdin’ on, I’m holdin’ on

I’m barely holdin’ on to you
The broken locks were a warning you got inside my head

I tried my best to be guarded, I’m an open book instead

I still see your reflection inside of my eyes

That are looking for a purpose, they’re still looking for life
I’m falling apart, I’m barely breathing

With a broken heart that’s still beating

In the pain (in the pain), is there healing

In your name (in your name) I find meaning

So I’m holdin’ on (I’m still holdin’), I’m holdin’ on (I’m still holdin’), I’m holdin’ on (I’m still holdin’)

I’m barely holdin’ on to you
I’m hangin’ on another day

Just to see what you will throw my way

And I’m hanging on to the words you say

You said that I will be OK
The broken lights on the freeway left me here alone

I may have lost my way now, haven’t forgotten my way home
I’m falling apart, I’m barely breathing

With a broken heart that’s still beating

In the pain(In the pain) there is healing

In your name I find meaning

So I’m holdin’ on (I’m still holdin’), I’m holdin’ on (I’m still holdin’), I’m holdin’ on (I’m still holdin’),

I’m barely holdin’ on to you


I’m holdin’ on (I’m still holdin’), I’m holdin’ on (I’m still holdin’), I’m holdin’ on (I’m still holdin’),

I’m barely holdin’ on to you-

 Lyrics to song “Broken” by Lifehouse 

Sometimes I just can’t wait for SongSunday to share a great song. This is an older song by Lifehouse. It is not necessarily considered a Christian song but Lifehouse is a crossover band and when I hear this song I feel like it is a song that I sing to the Lord when I am going through a trial or tough season. 

May it bring comfort to you today. Hold on! Hold on to Him, even if you are barely holding on.

Strong Shoulders 

  

You carry my weakness, my sickness, my brokenness all on Your shoulders
Your shoulders
My help comes from You

You are my rest, my rescue

I don’t have to see to believe that You’re lifting me up on Your shoulders
Your shoulders

Listen here to this weeks SongSunday 

“Shoulders” by King & Country 
When confusion’s my companion

And despair holds me for ransom

I will feel no fear

I know that You are near
When I’m caught deep in the valley

With chaos for my company

I’ll find my comfort here

‘Cause I know that You are near
[Chorus:]

My help comes from You

You’re right here, pulling me through

You carry my weakness, my sickness, my brokenness all on Your shoulders

Your shoulders

My help comes from You

You are my rest, my rescue

I don’t have to see to believe that You’re lifting me up on Your shoulders

Your shoulders
You mend what once was shattered

And You turn my tears to laughter

Your forgiveness is my fortress

Oh Your mercy is relentless
[Chorus]
My help is from You

Don’t have to see it to believe it

My help is from you

Don’t have to see it, ‘cause I know, ‘cause I know it’s true
[Chorus]
My help is from You

Don’t have to see it to believe it

My help is from you

Don’t have to see it, ‘cause I know, ‘cause I know it’s true

Everyone Loves Music 

  

Music ….. I don’t think I could live without it! 

Each Sunday we like to bring #SongSunday to our blog.  I believe that “Music speaks when words seem to fail.” 

 
We always love to hear what you are listening to.   

What is on your list of Must Have Music? 

 
I think Billy Joel has it right with his quote below….

Music is healing, it is an explosive expression of humanity and something we are all touched by no matter what culture we are  from. 

I agree- I think
