03. Just As I Am

Broken Temples
by Kevin Max



 

another big mistake
drove me to my knees alone
I feel my heart could just dissolve
in acetone

my family's on the edge
my friends are all but gone
I'm down and out
unknown direction far from home

but You
You meet me


just as I am
thatís how You take me
I'm in Your hands
even when I'm shaking
and when I bend and break
itís all for Heavenís sake
just as I am
thatís how You take me
You take me as I am


walking in Your stride
changed my posture to upright
all the faith I have in You my Lord
is verified

all the doubters have gone quiet
all the haters stupefied
mostly undermined
this time I qualify

You meet me
You meet me

just as I am
thatís how You take me
I'm in Your hands
even when I'm shaking
and when I bend and break
itís all for Heavenís sake
just as I am
thatís how You take me
You take me as I am

just as I am oh
just as I am oh


(Kevin Max, Josh Silverberg)

Behind the Song:
I have always been a fan of 80's music. My first concert was Howard Jones in Grand Rapids Michigan, my hometown, followed by Adam Ant & U2. I wasn't like the other kids in my private Christian school who listened to soft rock or hair metal. I was fully committed to the New Wave. Those influences play directly into some of the songs on this album, and probably even the most obviously on 'Just As I Am.' Again this song came out of a publishersí writing session with Josh and Kipp. I wanted to write a song about the prodigal son aspect of my life and that is the direction of the story. I would say that it is one of the more personal songs on the album, even though it feels like a dance track. I have always loved the contrast between moody, heavy lyric content with joyful chord structure. *(See Morrissey or The Smiths for examples.) -- Kevin Max
