Make me over

No, I haven’t had a makeover. Although that would be all kinds of fabulous. And it IS my birthday in 4 days, so …

I went for a run tonight and listened to my “running mix” on my iPod. This song came on at JUST the right moment. That I’ve-hit-a-wall-and-I-feel-like-I-might-die-if-I-keep-going-but-I-also-know-I’ll-feel-pretty-good-in-about-five-minutes-if-I-just-stick-it-out moment. It was good – I needed to hear it, RIGHT then.

Most people probably think Jude Cole wrote this song for his wife, and maybe he did, but to me these lyrics are about being “made over” by God. I love that concept.
Not only that, it’s simply a fantastic song.

Make Me Over

Wrap my arms around your name
Feel your breath against my pain
As I breathe out the past is gone

Empty smile, naked heart
Who I was falls apart
When you’re here inside of me

Feel ’til you’re numb
Depth perception becoming
The new deaf and dumb

I’m losing myself just to find a place in your mind
In your mind
Changing myself just to stand alone in your eyes
In your eyes

Pull me in
Take me out
Make me over

Read the wave, ride your fears
In this ocean of years
We’ve been here, swimming on

Take me deep ’til I find
Every corner of your mind
We’ve been here, swimming on

Touch ’til you taste
All the time we are wasting
Alone, waiting here

I’m losing myself just to find a place in your mind
In your mind
Changing myself just to stand alone in your eyes
In your eyes

Pull me in
Take me out
Make me over
And shout me out loud
Shout me out loud

I’m losing myself just to find a place in your mind
In your mind
Changing myself just to stand alone in your eyes
In your eyes

Pull me in
Take me out
Make me over
