Some music for today

Happy Thursday y'all!!!  I am so excited for this 3 day weekend coming up.  I really dont have big plans but its nice to have some more time away from work and to get ready for our vacation .  We leave next Friday. I am going out to East Texas to see Nanny on Monday.  I make a point to see her once a month at least. I'm heading to Canton this Saturday with my Canton partner in crime for the day.  Cant wait to see what treasures lay in store for us.  We have some dinner plans with some friends over the weekend.  It will be busy but nice! Do you have any Labor Day plans?  
I have 2 songs i want to play for yall today and they could be more different from one another. 

This first song is a Christian contemporary song called Lift your head Weary Sinner( Chains) by Crowder.   I really like it!  Its got a nice beat and it really doesnt seem like a christian song until you hear the lyrics.  I think it leans more like a country song..

Lift your head weary sinner, the river's just ahead
Down the path of forgiveness, salvation's waiting there
You built a mighty fortress 10,000 burdens high
Love is here to lift you up, here to lift you high

If you're lost and wandering
Come stumbling in like a prodigal child
See the walls start crumbling
Let the gates of glory open wide

All who've strayed and walked away, unspeakable things you've done
Fix your eyes on the mountain, let the past be dead and gone
Come all saints and sinners, you can't outrun God
Whatever you've done can't overcome the power of the blood

If you're lost and wandering
Come stumbling in like a prodigal child
See the walls start crumbling
Let the gates of glory open wide

If you're lost and wrecked again
Come stumbling in like a prodigal child
See the walls start crumbling
Let the gates of glory be open wide

If you're lost and wandering
Come stumbling in like a prodigal child
See the walls start crumbling
Let the gates of glory open wide

If you're lost and wrecked again
Come stumbling in like a prodigal child
See the walls start crumbling
Let the gates of glory be open wide
Let the gates of glory be open wide
Let the gates of glory be open wide


What did you think about that? 

This next song is on the hard rock countdown and i love it when it plays while i'm driving!
The name of the song is called Footsteps by Pop Evil.  I am not a fan of the band name but i sure like their music so far!! With a name like Pop Evil you would think its heavier than it is .  
I've been counting all my steps
All my no's just turned to yes
Silently I must confess
My troubled history
That's washed away all my sins
Starting over once again
This is where it all begins
It's right in front of me
Down is not where I belong
This aching heart won't turn to stone
There's a fire inside these bones
It was meant to be
I see the world still full of light
How could I ever be so blind
I still haven't lost my fight
That haunts me in my sleep

I feel like waking up
I've had this dream before
I'll take these footsteps
Go higher, go higher
I've walked an empty mile
Wore down this lonely soul
I'll take these footsteps
Go higher, go higher
(Woohoooo woohoooo woohoooo...)
Higher, go higher
(Woohoooo woohoooo woohoooo...)
Higher, higher

I know only time will tell
If all the cards will treat me well
Cause this hand that I been dealt
Keeps me wondering
So now here I turn the page
I've learned to silence all my rage
Tell me who can really say
What will tomorrow bring

I feel like waking up
I've had this dream before
I'll take these footsteps
Go higher, go higher
I've walked an empty mile
Wore down this lonely soul
I'll take these footsteps
Go higher, go higher
(Woohoooo woohoooo woohoooo...)
Higher, go higher
(Woohoooo woohoooo woohoooo...)
Higher, higher

I'll find you So far away, I'll find you,After all
I'll find you, So far away,I'll find you, After all

(I'll find you) I feel like waking up
(So far away) I've had this dream before
(I'll find you) I'll take these footsteps
(After all) Go higher, go higher
(I'll find you) I've walked an empty mile (I'll find you)
(So far away) Wore down this lonely soul (So far away)
(I'll find you) I'll take these footsteps
(After all) Go higher, go higher

(I'll find you) I feel like waking up
(So far away) I've had this dream before
(I'll find you) I'll take these footsteps
(After all) Go higher, go higher
(I'll find you) I've walked an empty mile (I'll find you)
(So far away) Wore down this lonely soul (So far away)
(I'll find you) I'll take these footsteps
(After all) Go higher, go higher

I feel like waking up
I've had this dream before
I'll take these footsteps
Go higher, higher

  1. I'm an old rock and roll girl myself. Even though I love all music, I play rock while I ride. Just goes together (hence the paint job on my softail-The Beatles). I equate riding to listening to music. Anyway, being an old Filmore and Winterland devotee, the lyrics on both are great. Hard to choose. :)

  2. These are both new to me, but I like them both. The thing I love about music is how it goes everywhere engulfing the entire human experience. There are some things that I think are unique to me alone and then I hear someone sing it in a song, which makes me realize that is simply not so.

    I hope you enjoy your traveling weekend. Be safe out there!

  5. I promise I'll come back to listen. Mining for more Martin Ten newbies, listening to Alan Parsons A Valid Path right now.

    1. Okay I made it. Both pretty good, Pop Evil reminded me a little of Soundgarden. Crowder was better listening than my earlier read through (perhaps because nothing else was playing when I was listening, go figure).

  6. No big plans either other than a BBQ and enjoying my gal's mom's swimming pool this weekend. After a week of walking pneumonia I need a cold beer and some exercise. Have fun and enjoy!
