05. Face Of The Earth / Chuck @ Artist Development Interlude

Portable Sounds
by TobyMac



 

It’s been a long time coming
Since I saw your face
Since we held it down
Since we were in the chase
It was the road less traveled
The path less formed
A skinny trail
It was barely worn
But we kept on walkin’ and slippin’ and talkin’ and runnin’ and fallin’ and cryin’ and crawlin’
We were in the trenches
On top of the world
Young refugees but we were momma’s pearls
Where you been dog? Where you been?

I thought you fell off the face of the earth …

It’s been way too long and we’ve come to far
For you drop out my life like a falling star
Right off my radar
Not a sign or a trace
You know I had love for you that’s bigger than mistakes
Now Hope road is calling
Let’s pack you up and move
‘Cause real friends are willing to intrude
So I’m gonna push in cause I wanna love you well
Let the ghosts of your past rest

Open up the door
This is the first day of the rest of your life
What are you waiting for?
This is the first day of the rest of your life

Open up the door
To life …

Behold I stand at the door and knock
If anyone hears my voice and opens the door
I will come in …


Produced by Toby McKeehan and Christopher Stevens Written by Toby McKeehan, Christopher Stevens and Joe Weber (C) 2007 Achtober Songs (admin. by EMI CMG Publishing) / Gotee Music (admin. by EMI CMG Publishing) / Regisfunk Music (admin. by EMI CMG Publishing) (BMI) / Rollcage Publishing (ASCAP)

"Chuck @ Artist Development" Performed by Randall Crawford and Kene "Ghost" Bell

Behind the Song:
"This is a song about a friend that I thought I had lost; I couldn’t find them. I began writing these words on a scrap of paper, ‘I thought you fell off the face of the earth,” You’re gone, where are you? Will I ever see you again? So it all began with this theme and it grew from there. Musically, I knew I wanted “Face of the Earth” to be warm. I wanted it to flow like a river rushing over you. I wanted it to be conversational so I chose to rap the verses. It’s sort of like letting the listener in on what I would say if my words could actually reach this lost loved one. And I’m just gently reminding them that I am there for them in their storm and even more promising…. so is God." - TobyMac
