I've sent this casting crown video to at least a dozen people that have emailed me for help over the last few years. As I recall, Dazed and his wife emailed me back having both just cried watching it (since by that time they had both taken the "slow fade" ride). I find it the most poignant adultery song & video EVER, see what you think?

I just had to follow up this posting with the "Slow Fade" Casting Crowns Teaching Video that accompanies it. It gives some great insight into the song and concept behind it.

Casting Crowns is amazing. When DH was a music minister Mark Hall was the youth director. He lives what he sings. And yes, speaking as a former WW, Slow Fade is spot on.

It's so weird the songs I hear when I first get into the car in the morning.

Song #1: 'It's a Sin' - Pet Shop Boys
Song #2: 'Is She Really Going Out With Him' - Joe Jackson

Life in my world.

P.S. Yes, it's really me -- I'm just wearing a hat, wig and the funny glasses/big nose combo for the time being. Kinda of late in the game, I'm down on the scoreboard, and in need of some big plays. Website articles and MB Weekend could be my last best chance at putting some more points on the board.....

Boy, I need to elaborate. If anyone cares to help me out via regular e-mail, let me know. I sense things slipping away here....

As always, thanks,
BTinBL

Can't really follow that ....


but I heard this today and I do like Robbie - I don't think I've really really heard it since my mess up (bit eupemistic there, but you know what I mean) Robbie - Make me Pure


So I sing a song
To reel 'em in
It's a song I've sung before
And a song I'm gonna sing again
I mean every word
I don't mean a single one of them
Oh Lord, make me pure
- but not yet

Tell a joke, tell it twice
If no one else is laughing then why am I
I split my sides both times and laugh until I cry
Oh Lord, please make me pure, but not yet

I don't have to try
I just dial it in
I've never found a job that for me was worth bothering
I got a ton of selfish genes and lazy bones
beneath this skin
Oh Lord, make me pure, but not yet

Smoking kills
Sex sells
I've got one hand in my pocket but the other one looks cool as hell
I know I'm gonna die so my revenge is living well
Oh Lord, make me pure, but not yet

I stopped praying
So I hope this song will do
I wrote it all for you
I'm not perfect but you don't mind that, do you?
I know you're there to pull me through, aren't you?

So I look for love
I like the search
And I'll be standing for election all across the known universe
Every president get the country she deserves
Oh Lord, make me pure, but not yet

And I've been seeing
Somebody's wife
She said she'd leave him for me and I said that wasn't wise
You can't lie to a liar because of all the lies
Oh Lord, please make me pure,but not yet

I've always loved this song........

www.youtube.comwatch?v=WWxFjufC24


For the young abandoned father left alone without a reason,
For the pilgrim in the city where there is no home.
For the son without a father for his solitary mother
I have a message

He sees you, He knows you,
He loves you, He loves you

Every heart that is breaking tonight
Is the heart of a child that He holds in His sight
And oh, how He longs to hold in His arms
Every heart that is breaking tonight.....

For the precious, fallen daughter, for her devastated father.
For the prodigal who's dying in a strange new way.
For the patriot with no country
I have a message......

He sees you, He knows you,
He loves you, He loves you....

Every heart that is breaking tonight
Is the heart of a child that He holds in His sight
And oh, how he longs to hold in His arms
Every heart that is breaking tonight.....

Not,

Your link doesn't work...

What's there needs at least a / between .com and watch, but even that doesn't get me the song...

Aimee Mann - Stupid Thing



This is the best video that I could find. The company doesn't like to have their songs on youtube. Ugh.

Lyrics:

Nothing was saving our day
There was nothing to say,
But you said something anyway
Claiming I stepped out of line
Which forced you to leave me,
As if that idea was mine.

Oh, you stupid thing
Speaking of course as your dear departed
Oh, you stupid thing
It wasn't me that you outsmarted,
You stupid thing
Stopping it all before it even started

I bet you knew it would come
That's just like you, to sit back
And just play it dumb
One word of warning would help
But that sacrifice was made
Trying to save yourself

Oh, you stupid thing
Speaking of course as your dear departed
Oh, you stupid thing
It wasn't me that you outsmarted
Oh, you stupid thing
Stopping it all before it even started

Maybe that's just how I am
To fall where I stand,
Or I'm weak for that kind of man
One who looks helpless and brave
But you turned into a coward
I don't care for the parts you saved.

Oh, you stupid thing
Speaking of course as your dear departed
Oh, you stupid thing
It wasn't me that you outsmarted
Oh, you stupid thing
Speaking of course as your dear departed
Oh, you stupid thing
It wasn't me that you outsmarted:
Oh, you stupid thing.
Oh, you stupid thing.
Oh, you stupid thing.
Oh, you stupid thing.


You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist. ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

Michael Stipe wrote this as a love song to the city of New York -- the band viewed it as their home away from home. Obviously, not a "traditional" relationship, but he wanted the lyrics to convey the deep feelings that can exist between two people who are in love. Most thought-provoking line:

"It's easier to leave than be left behind."

Leaving New York" by REM

It's quiet now
And what it brings
Is everything

Comes calling back
A brilliant night
I'm still awake

I looked ahead
I'm sure I saw you there

You don't need me
To tell you now
That nothing can compare

You might have laughed if I told you
You might have hidden A frown
You might have succeeded in changing me
I might have been turned around

It's easier to leave than to be left behind
Leaving was never my proud
Leaving New York, never easy
I saw the light fading out

Now life is sweet
And what it brings
I tried to take
But loneliness
It wears me out
It lies in wait

And I've lost
Still in my eyes
The shadow of necklace
Across your thigh
I might've lived my life in a dream, but I swear
This is real
Memory fuses and shatters like glass
Mercurial future, forget the past
It's you, it's what I feel.

You might have laughed if I told you (it's pulling me apart)
You might have hidden a frown (change)
You might have succeeded in changing me (it's pulling me apart)
I might have been turned around (change)

It's easier to leave than to be left behind (it's pulling me apart)
Leaving was never my proud (change)
Leaving New York, never easy (it's pulling me apart)
I saw the light fading out
You find it in your heart, it's pulling me apart
You find it in your heart, change...

I told you, forever
I love you, forever
I told you, I love you
I love you, forever
I told you, forever
You never, you never
You told me forever

You might have laughed if I told you
You might have hidden the frown
You might have succeeded in changing me
I might have been turned around

It's easier to leave than to be left behind (it's pulling me apart)
Leaving was never my proud (change)
Leaving New York never easy (it's pulling me apart)
I saw the life fading out (change)
Leaving New York, never easy (it's pulling me apart)
I saw the light fading out (change)
Leaving New York never easy (it's pulling me apart)
I saw the life fading out (change)
