08. When Love Takes You In

Declaration
by Steven Curtis Chapman



 

I know you’ve heard the stories
But they all sound too good to be true
You’ve heard about a place called home
But there doesn’t seem to be one for you
So one more night you cry yourself to sleep
And drift off to a distant dream

Where love takes you in and everything changes
A miracle starts with the beat of a heart
When love takes you home and says you belong here
The loneliness ends and a new life begins
When love takes you in

And somewhere while you’re sleeping
Someone else is dreaming too
Counting down the days until
They hold you close and say I love you
And like the rain that falls into the sea
In a moment what has been is lost in what will be

When love takes you in everything changes
A miracle starts with the beat of a heart

And this love will never let you go
There is nothing that could ever cause this love to lose its hold

When love takes you in everything changes
A miracle starts with the beat of a heart
When love takes you home and says you belong here
The loneliness ends and a new life begins
When love takes you in it takes you in for good
When love takes you in

Behind the Song:
"I knew the experience with Shaohannah was going to weave in and out of all the songs I write from now on until I don’t write anymore. But I didn’t know if I wanted to tread on that ground with trying to capture that in a four-minute song. So I decided maybe I won’t. That’s when the song ‘When Love Takes You In’ just kind of happened. It’s probably one of the two songs that I can honestly say I wept as I wrote it. And that doesn’t always happen. Madeleine L’Engle talks about how the art that we create is always so much bigger than we are and when we really realize that, we see that this is a ‘God Thing’ and we just get to participate in it. This song was very emotional as I wrote it and really imagined what may have gone in Shoey’s heart and mind even at seven months old not able to even process it all. The song just kind of came out of all that. I think my greatest hope with this song is not that people will be grabbing Kleenex as they listen but that maybe in the process there will be one or two hundred or thousand, who know? God knows how many might hear that and be encouraged and impacted to say you know we’ve thought about that process of adoption and there’s something haunting here I can’t get away from." - Steven Curtis Chapman
