06. Feels Like Winter

So Much For Substitutes
by downhere



 

I can't say what brought me down this far
It's complicated
Face down and bleeding from this war
Could you forget about figuring me out
And be glad I made it
From face down and bleeding from this war
From this war, from this war

Chorus
And it feels like winter
On a perfect summer day
If I convinced my heart to believe my mind
It might just go away

I can't say the last time I really smiled
It takes a lot now
When you're face down and bleeding from a war
Well I know exactly where I've been
And I can't go there again
I need a lot more, I need a lot more than thoughts
I need your touch in my war

Chorus

When it feels like winter
Would You come and save the day
When You touch this heart
I know You really love me
And You'll never go away

And it feels like winter
On this perfect summer day
'Cause You convinced my heart to know You really love me
It might just go away
Might just go away

Written by Jason Germain / Marc Martel

Behind the Song:
Heb. 6:17-20
I got the idea for this from a friend I went to Bible College with. She'd been battling depression and even attempted suicide at one point, but awhile after she emailed me and said she was in the process of working through her problems. Even though she's trying to come to grips with everything, those feelings aren't something she'll just 'get over.' One line in her email that really stuck out was "Even though I have all this head-knowledge about God, I still have trouble connecting head to heart." I translated that line for the song into 'If I convince my heart to believe my mind, this might just go away.' The words have a broader scope than just her situation; it's the hope in Christ and the fact He never changes. - Marc Martel (downhere)
