Hold Me Back

03 Nov 2010 Leave a comment

I’ve been listening to Jason Gray’s latest album, Everything Sad Is Coming Untrue, quite a bit these past few weeks. The lyrics of “Hold Me Back” I’ve found particularly compelling. It’s a whole lot more honest than most of the songs I find myself singing these days.

When it’s best that I fail
Don’t let my will prevail
Cause my salvation is
My magnificent defeat

I need you to hold me back
Hold me back
Cause it’s just like me to
Run from the one who loves me

That’s a hard prayer, but it’s one we all need to pray a lot more often than we do.
