13. Real To Reel

Above The Golden State
by Above The Golden State



 

My life has scripted lines
Like a movie, and you’re listening now
My director’s watchful eye
Is recording, every move and sound
Cameras on, three-two-one
Everyday because
It won’t be long, ‘til it’s done
And tomorrow will bring the awesome rising sun
Like a preview, of what’s to come

Watch me go, on the slide
Scene by scene of my whole life
I’m showing you my heart, from real to reel
Run the tape through my mind
Fit to screen, cut to size
I’m playing you my “best of” how I feel
From real to reel

I’ll roll through Hollywood
With a chariot, and gold rimmed shades
I can’t imagine the look on Oscars face
When he sees my star on the walk of fame
Oh, I believe, when I leave
I’ll play a part in this
Eternity’s, documentary
Tomorrow will bring the awesome rising sun
Like a preview, of what’s to come

Watch me go, on that slide
Behind the scenes of my true life
I’m showing you my heart, from real to reel
Run the tape through my mind
Fit to screen, cut to size
I’m playing you my “best of” how I feel
From real to reel

My life has scripted lines
Like a movie, and you’re listening now …

Behind the Song:
“I love the Bible verse that says, “God is the author and finisher of our faith.” I like to think of my life as a story being written by God. This song is a playful thought about what it would be like to watch replays or “movies” of our lives in Heaven. On a deeper spiritual level, it calls attention to the fact that God is directing our lives, scene by scene as we go about our days. Every second has meaning in eternity, and every action is recorded. How will we live our lives? Will it be an epic story to watch again and again, or will it not be worth mentioning? I want to be great in the kingdom, humble as God’s child. I want to be pure in heart that I might see God, and live in Him and for Him from now until the story ends!" - Michael Watson (Above The Golden State)
