Listen to the words...



Do you ever truly
sit listening to the words
of a song or do you go just
for the sound, the beat!?

I'd say I do both from time to time.
When I listen to the words,
I strongly hold on to them.

It might be a few words,
the chorus or a mix of words
through out that I might
compile in my own
way!

Today while cleaning (serving)
my daughters 
book case out
(she's on a mission trip,
chi alpha), I turned 
her radio on and 
listened to klove.

Christian music artist 
Meredith Andrews 
was a guest 
on the air today.

So of course 
they played 
her songs. The one that 
stuck out to me was 
"Pieces"
I didn't know the 
name of the song 
at the time. 
The words that stuck 
out were, don't hide 
who you are.

So I googled 
those words with 
Meredith's name. 
"Pieces" 
came up. 
So rather than 
sharing a video with 
the music and all 
I thought I'd 
share the 
words 
with 
you.

See what 
grabs at your 
eyes...

Pieces by Meredith Andrews

Verse:- 1
It's a complex puzzle you call your life
It's an uphill climb, it's a constant fight
And it wears you down
Feeling like you're alone, like you don't belong
And you won't be loved if you don't measure up
And you wear your scars
Like they're who you are
[Chorus]
Give Him your wounds, your bruised and broken pieces
All your questions, all your secrets
You don't have to hide who you are
You belong to someone greater
Than all your past mistakes and failures
Rested who He is
He knows how to make your pieces fit
Verse:- 2
He's the light on the road when you're lost in the dark
And He won't run away if you show your heart
Wants you to believe it
You can taste that freedom
[Chorus]
When you give Him your wounds, your bruised and broken pieces
All your questions, all your secrets
You don't have to hide who you are
You belong to someone greater
Than all your past mistakes and failures
Rested who He is
He knows how to make your pieces fit
Bridge:-
You are completely known
You are completely loved
This is where you belong
[Chorus]
Give Him your wounds, your bruised and broken pieces
All your questions, all your secrets
You don't have to hide who you are
You belong to someone greater
Than all your past mistakes and failures
Rested who He is
He knows how to make your pieces fit
