I must say…

I am so happy to hear Mr. Mraz changed the lyrics for “I’m yours” in the “We Sing” EP: they now say “God-intended right” instead of “God forsaken.”

    I noticed that change, too! I have to say that while I agree that the meaning is better…”God-intended” is harder to say while singing along. 😉

    nah. It’s only “harder to say” because we’ve practiced “God-forsaken” so long. 🙂

    I am so jealous you have already listened to your EP girls…I tried to download to the laptop but sadly to no avail so Matt had to grab it at home. A welcome home present for next weekend 🙂

    Thanks for the sneak peek at the new lyrics Julie 🙂

    hi there,
    i just saw that you posted a comment on my caedmon’s call post all the way back in january! how fun!
    i ADORE when the rest of the world finally gets to hear stuff i’ve been loving for ages. glad to see you’re a fan of mraz AND some great christian artists 🙂

    i always wondered why mraz said ‘god forsaken’…doesn’t really make sense…so i, too, was happy to hear the change.
    i saw another post was titled ‘move your feet when you pray, child.’ that lyric just amazes me. words are great, but actions make all the difference. mraz is amazing.

    good to e-meet you!!

torch bearing quietly

I will not act out, will not
yell or curse or slam doors,
will not make a scene -- you
do not deserve such a chance
to make an example out of me
to be proven right since you
are not. Instead, I'll stand
at this street corner, raise
my hand high and clench that
light which yet remains. It
will burn brightly, quietly,
fiercely before fading as I.

Then I'll be gone but found.
