04. Hold Us Together

Alive Again
by Matt Maher



 

It don't have a job
Don't pay your bills
Won't buy you a home
In Beverly Hills

VERSE TWO:
Won't fix your life
And find easy steps
Ain't the low or the limp
Or the government

PRE CHORUS:
But as soon you needed...

CHORUS:
Love, will, hold us together
Make us a shelter
to weather the storm

And I'll, be, my brothers keeper
So the whole world will know
That we're not alone

VERSE THREE:
It's waiting for you
Knockin' at your door!
Every moment of truth
When your heart hits the floor

PRE CHORUS TWO:
When you're on your knees then...

CHORUS:
Love, will, hold us together
Make us a shelter
to weather the storm

And I'll, be, my brothers keeper
So the whole world will know
That we're not alone

BRIDGE:
This is the first, day of the rest of your life
This is the first, day of the rest of your life
'Cause even in the dark you can still see the light
It's gonna be alright, it's gonna be alright

This is the first, day of the rest of your life
This is the first, day of the rest of your life
'Cause even in the dark you can still see the light
It's gonna be alright, it's gonna be alright

CHORUS:
Love, will, hold us together
Make us a shelter
to weather the storm

And I'll, be, my brothers keeper
So the whole world will know
That we're not alone




Behind the Song:
'It was January of 09 and I was on a flight from Phoenix to Nashville. I had an image in my mind in prayer of the church being the hands and feet of Christ in the world. As things are falling apart, people are looking for refuge - from so much constant uncertainty. I wrote the phrase ‘love will hold us together, make us a shelter to weather the storm.’ And then I wrote down on another page ‘I will be my brother’s keeper’ and that was it.

The next day I was in a writing session with Steve Wilson, and felt really strongly about the idea, and going in a direction that in some way “tipped the hat” to more soulful songs of the 60’s and 70’s. I am really happy with how the song turned out.' - Matt Maher
