Song lyrics

After the Storm

A song ringing true in my heart, as a new season awaits. A new, fresh start that comes after the rain, after the storm of the past season. This is such a beautiful song with beautiful words. This is a favourite of mine by Mumford & Sons. Not only because it rings true in my life but the part about ‘grace in your heart & flowers in your hair,’ that’s me. Such a beautiful song to come across at 2 in the morning while working and serving God.

Here are the lyrics.

“After The Storm”

And after the storm,

I run and run as the rains come
And I look up, I look up,
on my knees and out of luck,
I look up.Night has always pushed up day
You must know life to see decay
But I won’t rot, I won’t rot
Not this mind and not this heart,
I won’t rot.

And I took you by the hand
And we stood tall,
And remembered our own land,
What we lived for.

And there will come a time, you’ll see, with no more tears.
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.

And now I cling to what I knew
I saw exactly what was true
But oh no more.
That’s why I hold,
That’s why I hold with all I have.
That’s why I hold.

And I won’t die alone and be left there.
Well I guess I’ll just go home,
Oh God knows where.
Because death is just so full and man so small.
Well I’m scared of what’s behind and what’s before.

And there will come a time, you’ll see, with no more tears.
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.

And there will come a time, you’ll see, with no more tears.
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.

Doodgewone Aand Lirieke

Dis 1uur in die oggend en ek vat ‘n breek tussen my werk wat my moontlik tot na 10uur in die oggend gaan besig hou. Baie werk lê nog voor, voor my skype vergardering Neau Zealand toe kan gebeur 4uur vanoggend en daarna lê die res soos ‘n berg voor my.

Maar terwyl ek nou my tee drink, luister ek eers ‘n liedjie wat ek LOVE. Nou dat ek mooi na die woorde luister kan baie van dit my jaar opsom en die seisoen wat nou verby is in my lewe.

Hier’s die woorde van ‘Doodgewone Aand’ deur Die Heuwels Fantasties:

Die hartseer le vlak en is yl gesaai
Deur die blare, wind verwaai
Ek wapper dapper
Ek wapper dapper

Sluk jou trane skattebol
Want jy is beter
As die geroesmoes in hierdie plek
Kyk dis amper skemer
Voel die aarde draai in unisoon
Dis oë verblindery
Dit wat jy is, is jy

Ek kul jou hart
Ek kon jou hart voel klop
Deur die spierwit lig
Soos ‘n spierwit lig
Jy weet ons praat nie meer
In plaas van droom
Bekommer ons
Ons oor die dood

Dis die gejaag wat ons naar maak
Te veel al hierdie jaar verloor
Ek soek ‘n miljoen rand
Toe ‘n miljoen rand nog ‘n miljoen rand was
‘n Wentelbaan wat draai in unisoon

Ek kul jou hart
Ek kon jou hart voel klop
Deur die spierwit lig
Soos ‘n spierwit lig
Jy weet ons praat nie meer
In plaas van droom
Bekommer ons
Ons oor die dood

Sluk jou trane skattebol
Want jy is beter
As die geroesmoes in hierdie plek
Kyk dis amper skemer

Ek kul jou hart
Ek kon jou hart voel klop
Deur die spierwit lig
Soos ‘n spierwit lig
Jy weet ons praat nie meer
In plaas van droom
Bekommer ons
Ons oor die dood

Ons oor die dood, Ons oor die dood

Ons oor die dood, Ons oor die dood

Dood normaal
Dood nugter
Doodgewone aand
Doodmoeg
Ontnugter
‘n Doodgewone aand

Bloem Theme Song

On our way to Bloem this past weekend and coming back to Pretoria, somehow there was always this song from Mumford and Sons playing. To me the words are really cool, it could be such a cool song to just praise God with and lift up to Him. But it was definitely a theme song Joalet & I enjoyed jamming to, so much so that she even went and bought their CD with it on.

So here are the lyrics to I’ll Wait by Mumford & Sons:

And I came home
Like a stone
And I fell heavy into your arms
These days of darkness
Which we’ve known
Will blow away with this new sun

And I’ll kneel down
Wait for now
And I’ll kneel down
Know my ground

And I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you

So break my step
And relent
You forgave and I won’t forget
Know what we’ve seen
And him with less
Now in some way
Shake the excess

But I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you

So I’ll be bold
As well as strong
And use my head alongside my heart
So tame my flesh
And fix my eyes
That tethered mind free from the lies

But I’ll kneel down
Wait for now
I’ll kneel down
Know my ground

Raise my hands
Paint my spirit gold
And bow my head
Keep my heart slow

Cause I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you

Only Hope

This song is sung by Mandy Moore in the movie ‘A Walk to Remember’. Such a beautiful movie and song.

The lyrics to ‘Only Hope’:

here’s a song that’s inside of my soul
Its the one that I’ve tried to write over and over again
I will wake in the end when it calls
But you sing to me over and over and over again

Chorus:
So I lay my head back down
And I lift my hands and pray to be only yours
I pray to be only yours
I know now you’re my only hope

Sing to me the song of the stars
Of your galaxy dancing and laughing and laughing again
When it feels like my dreams are so far
Sing to me of the plans that you have for me over again

So I lay my head back down
And I lift my hands and pray to be only yours
I pray to be only yours
I know now you’re my only hope

I give you my destiny
I’m giving you all of me
I want your symphony
Singing in all that I am
At the top of my lungs
I’m giving you all

So I lay my head back down
And I lift my hands and pray to be only yours
I pray to be only yours i pray to be only yours
I know now you’re my only hope

Mmmmm mmmmm mmm
Ohohohohohohoh ohhhhh

Miles Away

Miles Away – Years Around the Sun is super cool. Get the acoustic version which may be easier to find. Really sounds great. Here are the lyrics:

we watch the light
as it set from the sun
all the ways we could run
all the ways we could run
oh my, can you see the light
from outer space?

what was said what was done
as the time had a ride
all the ways we could run
all the things we could try
oh my, could you tell me
where this is going to lead?

and all the lights are shining on the sea
as the rolling waves crash along the beach

and our minds were meant to sail
take a rest from our thoughts
take a brake from this world
and we’ll feel miles away
from the places that we used to be

as we lay in the sand
and we stare at the sky
watch the moon dancing why
as the stars latch your eyes
oh my, there’s no place on earth
i’d rather be
in my eye this night just don’t
feel real
but i can feel your touch
promise you won’t let go

and our minds were meant to sail
take a rest from our thoughts
take a brake from this world
and we’ll feel miles away
from the places that we used to be

and our minds were meant to sail
take a rest from our thoughts
take a brake from this world
and we’ll feel miles away
from the places that we used to be

The Unknown

The Uknnown performed by Athlete

Lyrics to The Unknown :

Let your world be wide open
And your fears be blown apart
May your voice be louder than bombs
Somewhere in silence find one to trustLife your head up
Untie the knot
My little sunshine
Hope is never light-years awayLet your senses be ignited
By streams of neon singing in the dark
Connected to the planet
A million neighbours
A sea of stars

Life your head up
Untie the knot
My little sunshine
Hope is never light-years away

Leaders, lovers come and go
Outside forces you can’t control
Oh I see you smiling at the unknown
Oh I see you smiling at the unknown

Life your head up
Untie the knot
My little sunshine
Hope is never light-years away

Life your head up
Untie the knot
My little sunshine
Hope is never light-years away

The Sound of Sunshine

Love this song! It is so chilled and happy and beachy. Definitely gets me bouncing around like a very happy person. Gotta listen to it otherwise you’re missing out!

The Sound of Sunshine – Michael Franti & Spearhead

One two three, uh

I wake up in the morning its six o’clock
They say there may be rain but the sun is hot
I wish I had some time just to kill today
And I wish I had a dime for every bill I’ve got to pay
Some days you lose you win
And the water’s as high as the times your in
So I jump back in there where I learned to swim
Try to keep my head above it the best I can
That’s why

Here I am, waiting for this storm to pass me by
And that’s the sound of sunshine coming down
And that’s the sound of sunshine coming down

One two three, uh huh

I saw my friend bobby I said “what’s up man”
You got a little work or twenty to lend
I opened up my hand he said “I’m glad to see
They can take away my job but not my friends, you see”

Here I am, waiting for the storm to pass me by
And that’s the sound of sunshine coming down
And that’s the sound of sunshine coming down

I wanna go where the summer never ends
With my guitar on the beach there with all my friends
The suns so hot and the waves in motion
And everything smells like sun tan lotion
The ocean, and the girls so sweet
So kick off your shoes and relax your feet
They say that miracles are never seizing
And every single soul needs a little releasing
The stereo bumpin’ ’til the sun goes down
And I only wanna hear that sound

And that’s the sound of sunshine, coming down
And that’s the sound of sunshine, coming down

I said you’re the one I wanna be with
When the sun goes down
You’re the one I wanna be with
When the sun goes down
Singin’ you’re the one I wanna be with
When the sun goes down

That’s the sound of sunshine, coming down
That’s the sound of sunshine, coming down

When the sun goes down
When the sun goes down
(When the sun goes down)

Mistake

This song plays in the movie Next Three Days. Very dramatic for the scene but gets the blood pumping.

“Mistake” by Moby

Don’t speak to me this way
Don’t ever let me say
Don’t leave me again [x2]
I never felt this loss before
And the world is closing doors
I never wanted anything more
[x2]
Don’t hug me this way
Don’t touch me this way
Don’t hug me again [x2]
Don’t hug me this way
Don’t touch me this way
Don’t hug me this again [x2]
I never felt this loss before
And the world is closing doors
I never wanted anything more
Don’t let me make the same mistake again
Please, don’t let me make the same mistake again
Don’t let me make the same mistake again
I never felt this loss before
And the world is closing doors
I never wanted anything more
Please, Don’t let me make the same mistake again [x2]
