We are Shattered Ones

The past week or two or three has not been the greatest for me or my family and i have been in such a rut it is hard to even try and get out of it. Even stuff from my past that comes up makes me fall apart and it shocks me that i am so vulnerable right now that even stuff that i didn’t think mattered to me does. The one thing that makes me get through the day is listening to music. Brett says its my depressing music cause it takes me to a place where im just in the zone and i understand word for word of each song.

As some people know i have been watching Days of our Lives, i know shame on me, and i was looking at fan vids on Youtube and one perticular one popped at me cause of the song that was for the video. The words were just so intense and amazing that this song is considered my “Song of the Moment”. The more and more i sing and listen to the words, i began to think of God. How we tumble and fall and stop believing but in the end he is there for us whether we want it or not. This song takes me to a place where it just makes me feel better. I can play it over and over again all day, but if it makes me feel closer to God and feel better for the moment, what is the harm in that? I have posted the lyrics here. I would love your imput on how these words impact you. I will also post a link to hear the song on Youtube.


Trading Yesterday ~ Shattered

Yesterday I died; tomorrow’s bleeding
Fall into your sunlight
The future’s open wide beyond believing
To know why hope dies
And losing what was found, a world so hollow
Suspended in a compromise
But the silence of this sound is soon to follow
Somehow sundown
And finding answers
Is forgetting all of the questions we call home
Passing the graves of the unknown

As reason clouds my eyes with splendor fading
Illusions of the sunlight
A reflection of a lie will keep me waiting
With love gone for so long
And this day’s ending
Is the proof of time killing all the faith I know
Knowing that faith is all I hold

And I’ve lost who I am, (i’m waiting)
and I can’t understand (and fading)
Why my heart is so broken, (and holding)
rejecting your love, (love) without, (onto these tears)
love gone wrong; lifeless words carry on (i am crying)
But I know, all I know’s that the end’s beginning (i’m dying tonight)
who I am from the start, (i’m waiting)
take me home to my heart (and fading)
Let me go and I will run, (and holding)
I will not be silent, (silent) all this time (onto these tears)
spent in vain; wasted years wasted gain (i am crying)
All is lost but hope remains and this war’s not over (i’m dying tonight)
There’s a light, there’s a sun (i’m waiting…)
taking all these shattered ones
To the place we belong (i am waiting…)
and his love will conquer all

Yesterday I died; tomorrow’s bleeding
Fall into your sunlight
