Lyrics of the Week – Week 7


Dedicated to those of you who have faithfully remained.

“Faithfully Remain” by Ben Harper and the Relentless 7

BenHarper

I learned to say goodbye
to say goodbye too young.
I learned to duck from words
like bullets from a gun.

How long can you pray?
How long can you pray 
and still not see a change?
I faithfully remain. I faithfully remain.


Somethings, somethings you have to let be lost. 
Some battles some battles you have to leave unfought.

Then the truth just wastes away 
in all we dare not say.
And then all we can’t explain.
But I faithfully remain. I faithfully remain.

Now I’m afraid once again. 
Once again it has come to this. 
When it all goes dark nothing stays the same. 
Now I’m only what I miss.

And my memories they turn to tears. 
Oh they turn to fire, blood, and pain.
And I, I faithfully remain. I faithfully remain.
And I, I faithfully remain. I faithfully remain.
I faithfully remain.

Lately I’ve been comtemplating my relationship with God and religion… I’ve found so many reasons to turn away. Who’s to say the rules and teachings are true? How can there be a talk of such wonderful happenings and afterlife when we live in this troublesome world? Why should I have to receive the Eucharist weekly to be considered an acting member of the church. WHY do I have to talk to God through a priest????????? (Only Catholics apply.)

At any rate, I commend those of you who DO faithfully remain, those of you who aren’t burdened with questioning your spiritually each day. I want to come back, but not in the same way.
