Favorite Song Lyrics?

I love the lyrics on this one. It is definitely my favorite secular song of 2006; the song is Now or Never and is from Josh Groban’s new CD Awake.

I watch the morning dawn upon your skin
A splinter in the light
It caught and frayed the very heart of us
It’s been hiding there inside for all this time
How a sure thing winds up just like this
Clockwork silence only knows

And it’s no one’s fault
There’s no black and white
Only you and me
On this endless night
And as the hours run away
With another life
Oh, darling can’t you see
It’s now or never
It’s now or never

Sweeping eggshells still at 3 am
We’re trying far too hard
The tattered thought balloons above our heads
Sinking in the weight of all we need to say
Why’s and what if’s have since long played out
Left us short on happy endings

And it’s no one’s fault
There’s no black and white
Only you and me
On this endless night
And as the hours run away
With another life
Oh, darling can’t you see
It’s now or never
It’s now or never

You know that there’s so much more

And it’s no one’s fault
There’s no black and white
Only you and me
On our final night
And as the hours run away
With another life
Oh, darling can’t you see
It’s now or never
It’s now or never

Sad, yes…in fact I would say it is tragic. It makes me want to write a poem to give the story a happy ending. But I think it is very poetic in and of itself.

My favorite Christian song of the year, a choice based on the lyrics is How Can I Keep from Singing from Chris Tomlin’s CD See the Morning.

There is an endless song
Echoes in my soul
I hear the music ring
And though storms may come
I am holding on
To the rock I cling

How can I keep from singing Your praise?
How can I ever say enough?
How amazing is Your love?
How can I keep from shouting Your name?
I know I am loved by the King
And it makes my heart want to sing

I will lift my eyes
In the darkest night
For I know my Savior lives
And I will walk with You
Knowing You see me through
And sing the songs You give

How can I keep from singing Your praise?
How can I ever say enough?
How amazing is Your love?
How can I keep from shouting Your name?
I know I am loved by the King
And it makes my heart want to sing

I can sing in the troubled times
Sing when I win
I can sing when I lose my step
And I fall down again

I can sing ’cause You pick me up
Sing ’cause You’re there
I can sing ’cause You hear me, Lord
When I call to You in prayer

I can sing with my last breath
Sing for I know
That I’ll sing with the angels
And the saints around the throne

How can I keep from singing Your praise?
How can I ever say enough?
How amazing is Your love?
How can I keep from shouting Your name?
I know I am loved by the King
And it makes my heart
I am loved by the King
And it makes my heart
I am loved by the King
And it makes my heart want to sing
I can sing

I just love that song…it reminds me of how Sr. Theresa Benedicta describes the life of a religious sister. She says that it is like being a princess loved by the King of Love Himself. But all of His daughters are His princesses; that fact makes me want to sing!

Anyone else have a favorite secular/Christian song of the year whose lyrics really spoke to them? Post it in the comments!
