01. Live Out Loud

Declaration
by Steven Curtis Chapman



 

Imagine this…I get a phone call from Regis
He says, “Do you want to be a millionaire?”
They put me on the show and I win with two lifelines to spare
Now picture this…I act like nothing ever happened
And bury all the money in a coffee can
Well, I’ve been given more than Regis ever gave away
I was a dead man who was called to come out of my grave
And I think it’s time for makin’ some noise

Wake the neighbors, get the word out
Come on…crank up the music…climb a mountain and shout
This is life we’ve been given made to be lived out
So la la la la live out loud
Live out loud, yeah

Think about this…try to keep a bird from singing
After it’s soared up in the sky
Give the sun a cloudless day and tell it not to shine
Now think about this…if we really have been given
The gift of a life that will never end
And if we have been filled with living hope we’re gonna overflow
And if God’s love is burning in our hearts we’re gonna glow
There’s just no way to keep it in

Everybody, come on
La la la…la la la la
La la la live out loud
I want to hear everybody sing
La la la…la la la la
La la la live out loud, loud, loud

Every corner of creation is a living declaration
Come join the song we were made to sing

Behind the Song:
"It’s kind of weird the different ways that songs are conceived and the whole birth process of a song. This one was strange in the sense that I actually saw this little phrase engraved in a piece of jewelry. I was with my wife celebrating our 16th anniversary in Charleston, South Carolina. I saw that phrase and in my mind bells and whistles and sirens were going off and fireworks. It just kind of exploded in my creative mind and I said I gotta write a song, I gotta write this song. That moment was the inspiration and then the work began. I wrote about 14 different versions of it trying to find the right one." - Steven Curtis Chapman

(Matt. 5: 13-16; 2 Cor. 5: 14 –15; Gal. 2: 20)
