05. The Emptiest Day

Back Home
by Caedmon's Call



 

They say You live in hospitals and trenches
And towers in the sky
And I'm not dying or fighting any wars
Except on the inside

The only thing I need is a void that You can fill
And I jump ship and run even further in Your will

And I am looking for the well that won't run dry
The rest that weary thoughts cannot deny
When You wrap Your arms around me
I can walk away or face the emptiest day

The words I find impossible to mention
Are written on a star
They say that I can find You in a flower
But I need You in the car

The optimism of my youth is dead and gone
But I'll save these speculations for another time and song

And life is only perceived through chemicals and emotion
But love, love is the island that overgrows the ocean

words and music by Joshua Moore and Matthew Perryman Jones

Behind the Song:
"They say that desperation is a college education. In my case, it seems that I’m working on my master’s degree. There have been many instances when emptiness or “emotional sedation” is worse than actual distress. In these times, nothing makes more sense than to acknowledge that I am loved and am empowered and compelled to love because of Christ. This is just as much a part of the Gospel as is my salvation." - Joshua Moore (Caedmon's Call)
