07. Somewhere In The Middle

The Altar and The Door
by Casting Crowns



 

Somewhere between the hot and the cold
Somewhere between the new and the old
Somewhere between who I am and who I used to be
Somewhere in the middle, You’ll find me

Somewhere between the wrong and the right
Somewhere between the darkness and the light
Somewhere between who I was and who You’re making me
Somewhere in the middle, You’ll find me

Just how close can I get, Lord, to my surrender without losing all control

Fearless warriors in a picket fence, reckless abandon wrapped in common sense
Deep water faith in the shallow end and we are caught in the middle
With eyes wide open to the differences, the God we want and the God who is
But will we trade our dreams for His or are we caught in the middle
Are we caught in the middle

Somewhere between my heart and my hands
Somewhere between my faith and my plans
Somewhere between the safety of the boat and the crashing waves

Somewhere between a whisper and a roar
Somewhere between the altar and the door
Somewhere between contented peace and always wanting more
Somewhere in the middle You’ll find me

Just how close can I get, Lord, to my surrender without losing all control

Lord, I feel You in this place and I know You’re by my side
Loving me even on these nights when I’m caught in the middle

Behind the Song:
The theme of this record truly begins with this song. I’ve been in this place so many times I could design postcards. The sadness of knowing I’m not where I should be and the numbness that sets in can be devastating. But know this: God loves, heals, and restores! ~Revelation 2:1-5 / Galatians 2:20 / Galatians 6:7-8 / Psalm 1 / Galatians 5:1 / Matthew 16:24-26 / Isaiah 50:10 / Proverbs 14:14, 16:8 / Matthew 12:30 / 2 Corinthians 4:7-10, 5:14-17 / Philippians 3:7-11 / Philippians 4:11-13 / Revelation 3:14-21

"“Somewhere In the Middle” is a song about the lament that I could have a greater friendship with God. It came from being at that numb place of looking back and remembering a time when I was closer to God and then realizing that ‘that was then’ and this is now. When you’re numb like that, stuck between hot and cold, you don’t want to be around the people of God… the song came from that feeling." - Mark Hall (Casting Crowns)
