14. The Rhythm (Bonus Track for Family Christian Stores)

Coming Up To Breathe
by MercyMe


Even though the world doesnít know each other, we walk in the same direction
Like those lemmings that march off a cliff into the ocean for no apparent reason and no objection

You know that direction, I call it the direction of ďmeĒ
My goals, my stuff, how do I get first place, and could somebody up there cut me a break so I can win the lottery

Then all of a sudden somebody shows up whoís totally set apart from the rest.
Well heís heading in the other direction for one and thereís a peace in His eyes and a rhythm to His step.

Itís as if he has found the answer to life, and come to find out the answerís not me, myself or I.
I think Iím sticking with that guy.

My heart will beat as one
To the beat of a different drum
The rhythm of Your love

My heart is dancing now
In time with what Iíve found
The rhythm of Your love

As if I didnít say enough in the first verse, thereís something else thatís bugging me
How can I have just one heart that beats for so many things at the same time continually?

It just doesnít make since. I mean technically Iíve only got one heartbeat in there
But I dance with so many things, do so many jigs youíd think I was Fred Astaire

Iím no rocket scientist, but it seems that every time you give a piece of your heart away
It can not be healthyÖ nor can it be as strong as well letís say

When the whole heart is beating as one for one thing one rhythm in unison
Now that my friend is good advice for anyone
