09. Too Much

Sound Of Melodies
by Leeland



 

All these places I have been
All these faces I have seen
Too much, too much
All these bricks and all these stones
Have all been cast they’ve all been thrown
Too hard, too hard

Find me in the background looking down
You’ll never see my face
I’m looking down

I need a place a sanctuary
A refuge for my ordinary
Finally familiar peaceful home
Untroubled safe from all this madness
Refuge for my hope and sadness
Possible to find myself alone
At home

All these cliffs and all these heights
They’ve just been too high to climb
Too high, too high
All these waves and all these seas
Have all been crashing down on me
Too much, too much

I’ve found my home again
I finally find myself in You
I finally find myself in You
I feel safe again
You’re the one I’m running to
You’re the one I’m running to

Behind the Song:
“I was inspired to write this by the band Travis,” Leeland Mooring remembers. “It’s kind of schizophrenic, but I think it’s cool because it gives the album unexpected feeling. It’s dark in the first verse, like everything is crashing down around you. A little semi-happy in the chorus, it goes back to dark in the second verse. Then the bridge explodes super happy—finding that place of sanctuary; finding that way home to God.”
