these words are inspiring me:

I know there’s got to be another level Somewhere closer to the other side And I’m feeling like it’s now or never Can I break the spell of the typical (mutemath)

i’m not water but i’m not wine you could say i’m just here for the party with one thing on my mind squeezing me and my camel through that needles eye i don’t wanna know if the answers aren’t easy so just bring it down from the mountain to me

don’t teach me about moderation and liberty i prefer a shot of grape juice

don’t teach me about loving my enemies don’t teach me how to listen to the Spirit just give me a new law

what’s the use in trading a law you can never keep for one you can that cannot get you anything do not be afraid

i'll do whatever it takes to squeeze us into this wedding gown i'll say the words that rattle your nerves words like sin and faith alone so i don't care if... nobody loves me, nobody loves me nobody loves me but you

I wanna buy you an old upright I wanna accidentally stay all night I wanna read the Bible and I wanna make out I wanna marry you all over again I wanna fall in love and say we’re just friends I wanna race you all the way to Kansas City (derek webb)

so i saw derek webb last thursday. at the murray hill theater in Jacksonville. It's probably the coolest "dry" venue i have ever experienced. but, more importantly, i was very moved by seeing derek webb live. i always knew he was a good songwriter. but i kind left around "long line of leavers" and never came back (no pun intended) now i kinda wished i had never left. so much truth, so well put.

here was his set list for those who care:

  1. Love Stronger than our Fear
  2. Nobody Loves Me
  3. New Law
  4. Name
  5. Reputation
  6. With God on Our Side (Bob Dylan Cover)
  7. Ballad of San Francisco
  8. Trouble
  9. 10,000 Angels
  10. Crooked Deep Down
  11. Wedding Dress
  12. Rich Young Ruler

Quote of the Night: "How could I join an organization called Promise Keepers??... I mean, I TRY... maybe like one out of four i actually keep... i mean, really only one person in HISTORY could even CLAIM... ok, i'll stop now..." - Derek Webb
