Is This Why I Love Music So Much?

May 4, 2009 1 comment

Is this why I can’t stand the silence?  Lyrics from a new Jars of Clay song…It’s really moving.  Great melodies, great message.  The video is under the lyrics.

I don’t have to hear it
If I don’t want to
I can drown this out
Pull the curtains down on you
It’s a heavy world
It’s too much for me to care
If I close my eyes
It’s not there

With my headphones on (x4)

We watch television
But the sound is something else
Just a song played against the drama
So the hurt is never felt
I take in the war fires
And I’m chilled by the current events
It’s so hopeless
But there’s a pop song in my head

phones on
With my headphones on (x7)

At the tube stop
You sit down across from me
I think I know you
By the sad eyes that I see
And I wanna tell you
Everything will be ok
But you wouldn’t hear it
So we go our separate ways

with our headphones on

I don’t wanna be the one who
Tries to figure it out
I don’t need another reason
I should care about you
You don’t wanna know my story
You don’t wanna own my pain
We’re living in a heavy, heavy world
And there’s a pop song in my head
yeah there’s a pop song in my head

Yeah it’s a heavy world
Oh no, I don’t wanna have to hear it
Heavy world

No, I don’t wanna have to hear it (x3)

Song of the Day- All My Tears by Jars Of Clay

This is basically a modern day hymn. I really like it, it’s a little country, a little gospel with cool rhymes, harmonies, and piano work. This is from their album Good Monsters. Enjoy!

Songs of the Day

Today’s songs have some meaning to them. They are encouraging, and to me, moving. The first is a song called “You’re Not Alone” by Saosin. The second is a song by Jars of Clay called “Oh My God”. I am linking to the lyrics so that you can understand they are not taking the Lord’s name in vain. This is what the lead singer of the band has to say about the song.

Good Monsters“Matt [Odmark, Jars guitarist] came to the band with this idea to use the phrase “Oh my God” in a song. It means so many different things and it’s used in so many different contexts, but in the end, it means that at some point in every person’s life, they have to confront whether or not God is real.”

It’s not your typical verse, chorus, verse, chorus song…but it’s cool nonetheless. Enjoy your work week!

NOTE: To keep browsing the site while songs are playing, right click on the song link, and select “Open in New Window”, or “Open in New Tab”. I can’t have the music automatically open in a new window like links to articles and webpages. Just FYI!
