All the Pretty Things

A friend on Pinterest (and a pen-pal matter-o-fact) pinned a pin (not dreamed a dream) that had some beautiful lyrics.  This is that pin:

These lyrics are absolutely beautiful and so true. <3

I asked what the lyrics were from and she informed me they were from Tenth Avenue North’s song “All the Pretty Things”. I now  love this song, and it really hits deep.

I was going to try to add a video of it, but I’m having some technical difficulties, so I’m afraid I can’t post the song. But look it up! It’s beautiful

 

“All the Pretty Things” by Tenth Avenue North

We are, we are, we’re caught in the in-between
Of who we already are and who we’re yet to be
We’re looking for love but finding we’re still in need
It’s only what we have lost will we be allowed to keep
And we’re waiting but our eyes are wandering to
All this earth holds dear

Look at all the pretty things
That steal my heart away
I can feel I’m fading
‘Cause Lord, I love so many things
That keep me from your face
Come and save me

And we run, we run, to finally be set free
But we’re fighting for what we already have received
So we’re waiting but our eyes are wandering to
All this earth holds dear

Look at all the pretty things
That steal my heart away
I can feel I’m fading
‘Cause Lord, I love so many things
That keep me from your face
Come and save me

We are, we are, we’re caught in the in-between
But we’re fighting for what we already have received
We are, we are, we’re caught in the in-between
But we’re fighting for what we already have received

Look at all the pretty things
That steal my heart away
I can feel I’m fading
‘Cause Lord I love so many things
That keep me from your face
Come and save me

 

How true is that? For me, there ARE a lot of things that keep me away from Him – so many distraction. The computer and reading are big ones for me. When I get up, I want to do what I want to do – not what He wants. But I don’t want that any more. I need Him to come and save me.
