So Much For Substitutes
by downhere



 

So much for fame and things you can lose
So much for substitutes
So much for the strain of playing a game
Where champions always lose everything
I won't treat Your love
Like an adolescent fling
'Cause when everyone's gone
You're the only one who stays

Chorus
I'd rather be Your stone
Than light up another's sky
I'd rather be Your stone
'Cause all your stones become your diamonds

You gave me a name I could never gain
With even my college try
Convinced by Your touch, it was more than enough
I'm leaving old treasures in the dust
'Cause I found this pearl
I'd give everything to have, I have it

Chorus

Out of darkest deep, You dig me up
And You crush me and You lift me up
And to give You thanks
I can only love You more

Chorus


Written by Jason Germain / Marc Martel

Behind the Song:
1 Cor. 1:18-31
It's about the process of getting rid of everything entangling me in my walk and coming to a point of sanctification and being changed. I've found out that everything less than Jesus is just a measly substitute. I'd rather be the lowest servant in the kingdom than a rock star in someone else's eyes. - Marc Martel (downhere)
