weight of words

collective soul‘s songs comfort me always. whenever i listen to their songs, i drift towards a place where i feel most happy. i never knew that this song had this phrase. imagine my surprise when i heard the phrase weight of words from their song, needs.

if it weren’t for my in-ears earphones (courtesy of how-paw’s digital walker store), i wouldn’t have picked up that phrase. talk about finding kinship in a great song roughly a year after birthing this blog. not to mention that some of the phrases in this song speak strongly of my search for Him amidst the din of days. life is such a sucker for kinship and coincidences, and i am almost always glad of its surprises.

Needs
Collective Soul

All around me I see what weakness has made
Too much tomorrow I think I’ll take all today
Am I a poison, Am I a thorn in the side
Am I a picture, perfect subject tonight

I don’t need nobody
I don’t need the weight of words to find a way
To crash on through
I don’t need nobody
I just need to learn the depth
Or doubt of faith to fall into

Here I slumber to awaken my daze
I find convenience in this savior I save
Am I a prison, Am I a source of dire news
Am I a picture perfect reason for you

I don’t need nobody
I don’t need the weight of words to find a way
To crash on through
I don’t need nobody
I just need to learn the depth or doubt
Of faith to fall into

In this time of substitute
It’s my needs I’ve answered to (All the while)
And the hope that I invest
Still turns to signals of distress (All the while)

I don’t need nobody
I don’t need the weight of words to find a way
To crash on through
I don’t need nobody
I just need to learn the depth or doubt
Of faith to fall into

You’re all I need
When the water runs deep
You’re all I need
Now I cry my soul to sleep
You’re all I need
