02. Chance To Love

The Golden Rule EP
by Above The Golden State



 

Why would I bother speaking
If my words werenít meant to share
Why would I bother breathing
If my lungs donít need the air
Why would my heart keep drumming on
If thereís no will here to live

I donít want to give up
ĎCause todayís a chance to love
I donít want to give up
ĎCause todayís a chance to love
Why do I search for romance
If my heart is made of stone
Why should I fight for freedom
If the war is far from home
Why do I search for meaning here
If thereís no means to the end

Yesterday is like the fog at death-grips with the sun
And today, redemptionís at the mercy of the dawn

Why does my God still trust me
When Iíve run away from Him
Why does my God come save me
From the sins that I commit
Why would He send His only Son
If we could live without love

Love right now like thereís no tomorrow
Love wants out, kill the pain and sorrow
Love wants out! Love right now!

Behind the Song:
"I was driving home in the afternoon and felt strangely depressed. It dawned on me that I had missed every opportunity so far that day to love those around me. In fact, I had done just the opposite by being extremely irritable and self-focused. But by Godís Spirit, this thought came into mind: ďthe day isnít over yet, thereís still a chance to love someone.Ē I quickly asked Godís forgiveness for my lack of love, as well as the opportunity to love someone before the sun went down. Sure enough, the opportunity came my way within the next hour. Donít give up! Love right now like thereís no tomorrow.Ē Ė Michael Watson (Above The Golden State)
