I know you all have one of those songs... you know those songs that connect to everything you are thinking, feeling, and experiencing at the moment. And if you are anything like me, you have several of those songs--relating to various stages of life, relationship, spirituality, and emotion.
Over the years, Bebo Norman has written lyrics that continue to make me say, "Yeah, you get it." What I love about his lyrics resounds in the authenticity of them. He isn't afraid to talk about dark days or struggling moments. He's real. What a guy.
A few days back I pulled out a CD of his, Try, that I haven't listened to in quite a while. But as it was a college favorite, I decided to see what it would do for me. And this song, "Disappear," reverberated. I wish I could copy the music link for you. You can get on Lala.com and listen to it, but here are the lyrics.
On a day like this I want to crawl beneath a rock
A million miles from the world, the noise, the commotion
That never seems to stop
And on a day like this I want to run away from the routine
Run away from the daily grind that can suck the life
Right out of me I only know of one place I can run to
Chorus: I want to hide in You The Way, the Life, the Truth
So I can disappear And love is all there is to see
Coming out of me And You become clear
As I disappear I don't want to care about earthly things
Be caught up in all the lies that trick my eyes
They say it's all about me I'm so tired of it being about me¦
I would rather be cast away
Separated from the human race
If I don't bring You glory
If I don't bring You glory.
