02. Being Small

Nightlights
by Jimmy Needham



 

Why I wanna be a hurricane when Iím barely a breeze? / 'Cause Iíve already seen Your storm bring me down to my knees / Just when we think weíve made it high enough / You knock us back to the ground / Weíre all trying to move up fast, canít see the contrast / Of how the King came down / 'Cause I canít build my towers higher / And live inside your fire / No no, no no no // Whenever I climb too high / Keep my feet on the ground / And when I get full of me / Turn me upside down / You know pride and not just summer / Come before the fall / So if it's You thatís gettin' bigger I donít mind / Being small / Being small // Maybe if I shout real loud maybe then I'll draw a crowd / And then they'll finally cheer / Or maybe I should tone down, never make a sound out / Anything to draw them near / Maybe there's more to life then trying to make a name / Even though they say it ain't so / So maybe I should step on down / Hand off the King's crowns /To the guy on the throne / 'Cause I canít build my towers higher / And live inside your fire / No no, no no no /// These people won't miss me / I'll be out of their memories / The ground will forget me for sure / Only one is remembered / One name to be treasured is Yours

Behind the Song:
"This song speaks to the meta-theme of this album, namely the increasing of Jesusí fame and the decreasing of our own. I try so hard to make a name for myself, building my towers higher and higher just like the folks at Babel. What I fail to realize is that Iíve been put on earth to make a name for the King of Kings! Therefore, I am growing increasingly more content with the elevation of Christ as I enjoy simply ďbeing small.Ē" - Jimmy Needham
