04. Dying to Know You

Wide-Eyed and Mystified
by downhere



 

Old streets don't lead back where they used to
We blaze new trails to ancient places
I still love You just like I used to
But this love won't fit spreadsheets

I don't just want to hear it
I want to feel it too
It's less like I'm trying
Itís more like I'm dying to know You

New day, new wave, same destination
With all this new change, lest we forget our beginnings
But Iím done with lip service
You look through the skin to the heart that drives this
Beyond trying, Iím dying for love

Iím dying to swim in Your sea
Iím dying to taste and see
Iím dying in all that I do
So come to me Ďcause I canít get to You




Behind the Song:
"Every new generation looks for its own sense of identity in how it relates to God. And I think that God reveals different aspects of His unchanging, eternal character to different generations. "Dying to Know You" is an admission of that. As grateful as I am for my strong upbringing by parents who love Jesus, and being strongly influenced by the culture they grew up in, I can't rely on other people's journeys to take me where I need to go. I still have to find the unique way in which God created me to love and serve Him today. If the faith of our generation looks different than the last generationís, there is nothing wrong with that. Within the confines of truth, there is so much freedom of expression and experience. You can't categorize God's love on a spreadsheet, and "trying harder" doesn't come close to capturing an appropriate response to His love. For me, it's a matter of life and death." - Marc Martel (downhere)
