The Only Hope September 30, 2008

Bebo Norman is one of my absolute favorite musicians.  Very few singer/songwriters send me to a blissful place, but his voice just melts me.  My husband was pretty jealous once when I had a very innocent dream about Bebo and said his name in my sleep:)  Funny stuff!

Anyways, I am loving his new album.  I already have a few favorite songs, but this is one that is appropriate to me at this moment.  I hope you enjoy!

(I cannot figure out how to get a song to play on this wordpress blog.  If any of you legitimately have made it happen, please comment and let me know.  Sorry you don't get to hear it.  It is a great song:)

The Only Hope

I want to run, it’s my nature to run

And I want to fight, it’s my nature to fight

And I want to live, but you tell me to die

I have resolved that I’m much better off in your hands than mine

I’m begging you to hold on tight

Begging you to hold on tight

Begging you to take my life from me

I want a crumb, but you are a feast

I want a song, but you are a symphony

I want a star, but you are a galaxy

And I have resolved that I’m much better off in what you have for me

I’m begging you to hold on tight

Begging you to hold on tight

Begging you to take my life from me

So tell me you won’t let go

Tell me you won’t let go

Cause you are the only hope for me

Take my life from me, It’s the only hope for me

Take my life from me, it’s the only hope for me

And I’ll never want for more

I’ll never want for more

I’m begging you to hold on tight

Begging you to hold on tight

Begging you to take my life from me

So tell me you won’t let go

Tell me you won’t let go

Cause you are the only hope for me

You’re the only hope for me

Yeah, you’re the only hope for me

    I looove Bebo also. Ben isn’t quite as jealous of my love for him as he is of my love for Michael Buble, but I think it is just because he doesn’t really listen to Bebo with me as much. I Turn Bebo on when the kids are both screaming and I can’t laugh and am on the edge of breaking down and his voice usually calms the whole house and the Holy Spirit takes over through his music. I so want to hear his new album..perhaps I will download it on my ipod for a mommy treat.

    Mark gave me a Bebo Norman CD a few years ago, and it is still my favorite! I will have to get the new songs asap! I’ve always thought a son named Bebo Baird would sound pretty cool. . .
