Random musings and observations from a "recovering fundamentalist" trying to live life in the land of gray, the fuzzy middle, the happy perch somewhere on the side of the slippery slope.

The Glory and the Fall - Leesha Harvey
I got a request for some music, so here you go. (This is for you, Dan!) This is one of my more "overtly spiritual" songs, although I would say all of my songs have an element of faith in them. I'll include the lyrics below.
The Glory and the Fall
Label me the skeptic Are you so surprised? All these years of sight unseen have left me with some aching eyes
My hands are stained and shaky From wars within and without When You came to claim my soul why did You leave behind the doubt?
Will I ever change at all as I live this life between the glory and the fall
I could keep on asking or I could bide my time live with the uncertainty and take all of these mysteries blind
Forgive my indiscretion Please don't turn away As I give voice to my darkest thoughts and say the things the others will not say
But do You even hear at all as I live this life between the glory and the fall
Can you hear the crashing sound of all the arguments falling to the ground Is the space just too far for me to ever know just what I am and who You are?
Ever broken, ever small As I live this life between the glory and the fall
Ever broken, ever small Trying to live this life between the glory and the fall
