05. The Space Between Us

by Shawn McDonald


I’m still up, and it’s three in the morning / I try to sleep,
but my mind keeps going / Am I awake, ‘cause You’re trying speak to me / Lying here with my ears wide
open / Can You fix what I know I have broken / There’s a hole in my heart where I need You to be / But
I’m right here / And You’re right there / Will You take this wall I built, and tear it down // And do what
You always do / Making the old so new / Taking away the space between us / Filling it up with more of
You / You do what You always do / ‘Cause You’re my rescue / Taking away the space between us / Taking
away the space between me and You // Never really meant to be so distant / Should have known that it
made no difference / You were holding my hand when I walked away / And You were there in the middle
of the night / You were there when I lost my sight / And You’re still here holding me today

Behind the Song:
"This is a prayer for God to break down my walls and the space that I put between Him and me in my constant battle to do things in my own strength. The chorus says it all: “But I am here / And you are there / Will you take this wall I built and tear it down?” It pretty much sums up the whole album, in some ways. This whole record is a new beginning and redemption record for me. It’s all about coming back to the heart of God and things that truly matter. Most of these songs are prayers that are quite personal to me, but I hope God uses the songs in listeners’ lives as they encounter their own storms and praises." - Shawn
