| crooked souls trying to stay up straight



Ya noe.. Personally, I don't really like to post up serious posts or 'emo' post or whatever. But I can't sit idle and not notice people struggling with hurt.. with despair. To them, their hurt surpasses all others and their efforts are hopeless. To them, the world has betrayed them and they're all alone. They call themselves fallen when they barely touched the ground.

Who needs enemies when you've got friends to do the job for you?

Why all this hurt? Why all this pain? Why turn away? Where's God? Needless to say, those are the most common questions. I'm not trying to say that their pain is meaningless. I'm just trying to say that there are better ways to deal with it. I remembered someone once told me, "Not everyone is as strong as you!". I'm not strong - not on my own at least.

If I'm always a sinner, a sinner shall I always be..

Some even take drastic actions while others cowardly run away. They think it's freedom when it's actually bondage. They think it's peace when it's actually emptiness. They think they're enjoying it, but it's a bomb waiting to blow up. They beat themselves up and act like heroes after a victorious battle. The truth is that they're just cowardly running away from the truth.

when Light hurts your eyes.. step into the Darkness

Turn away from the light and step into the darkness of your shadow? Why look to the darkness and think it's cool? God will never abandon you. His sun shines over you. Don't forget, the shadow proves the sun shines.


switchfoot
the shadow proves the sunshine

Sunshine, won't you be my mother
Sunshine, come and help me sing
My heart is darker than these oceans
My heart is frozen underneath

We are crooked souls trying to stay up straight
Dry eyes in the pouring rain
The shadow proves the sun shine
The shadow proves the sun shine

Two scared little runaways
Hold fast to the break of day light were
The shadow proves the sun shine
The shadow proves the sun shine


Oh Lord, why did you forsake me?
Oh Lord, don't be far away.. away
Storm clouds gathering beside me
Please Lord, don't look the other way

Crooked souls trying to stay up straight
Dry eyes in the pouring rain
The shadow proves the sun shine
The shadow proves the sun shine

Two scared little runaways
Hold fast to the break of day light were
The shadow proves the sun shine
The shadow proves the sun shine


Yeah Yeah, shine on me
Yeah Yeah, shine on me
Yeah Yeah, shine on me
Yeah Yeah, shine on me

Crooked souls trying to stay up straight
Dry eyes in the pouring rain
The shadow proves the sun shine
The shadow proves the sun shine

Two scared little runaways
Hold fast to the break of day light were
The shadow proves the sun shine
The shadow proves the sun shine


Yeah Yeah, shine on me
Yeah Yeah, shine on me
Yeah Yeah, shine on me

Shine on me,
Let my shadows prove the sun shine


We're not perfect but we have hope. We try. We do. We're crooked souls trying to stay up straight.
