NewBoys, Your Love is Better Than Life.

Okay, these guys are amazing. We went to see them in concert a while back, and it was amazing. I couldn’t hear for a week, but it was worth it. This song, Your Love is Better Than Life, is among my favorites.

Do we get halos & harps? Do we sleep? Do we fly? I dunno
how, when and why this world will finally end,
Speculation’s gonna grow, who knows best, I dunno
I dunno if I should push ahead or stop and grieve,
I lie awake and wonder how to make a city believe,
I dunno when it’s a ministry and when it’s a show
maybe neither, maybe both, I dunno

I love the songs honesty. A lot of people want answers for a variety of things. Why do bad things happen? What’s going to happen when we die? Why is that person so mean?

I wish I had answers. Like the song says…I dunno.  But later in the song, it says “YOUR LOVE IS BETTER THAN LIFE, I look to you ‘cause you’re the lover of my soul”

I look to HIM, that’s where I get my peace in all the “I dunnos”

    I really like that honesty, too. It’s very refreshing. And that’s a great song.

    Guess what? I interviewed Duncan from Newsboys.

    These guys are my favorite. Hands down. They haven’t written a bad song yet. And who can’t watch them without smiling?

    My personal favorite is Million Pieces. But He Reigns is pretty incredible too.

    Way to start the Monday with awesomeness!

    Great song from a great Scripture:

    ” … because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.” Psalm 64:3

    I hate to say it, but the song running through my head right now is:

    She’s a maniac, maniac, on the floor
    And she’s dancing like she’s never danced before!

    inspired by my dog. 🙂

  8. Hehehe. They have a few songs with gross lyrics, too. Like the one about making a vegetarian want to barbeque a hamster (Shine) but I do love their songs. 🙂

  9. Lynn Rush says:

    Rosslyn–OH NO! Now I’m gonna dream about that song…I’m off to bed and reading some comments…..grrrr. 🙂

    Jennifer–You’re right. Great scripture. I love how they follow it so perfectly!

    Michelle–Oh yeah- they sure do, don’t they. LOL. Great music, though. 🙂 Thanks for stoppin’ by.
