02. A Breath or Two

Not Without Love
by Jimmy Needham



 

I think itís terminal, this terminal Iím waiting in
Could use a change of scene, it seems Iíve been repeating it
Another day, another plane, another same thing
Yesterday became tomorrow thatís the strange thing
Another string, another strum, another rhyme, another hum
I want to breathe in
I want to breathe in and out again

CHORUS
Iím tired of putting one foot in front of the other
Iím weary of where it leads me to
Iím tired of moving on from my Father
Make me rest my head, take a breath or two

Simply stated simple minded love for You
Has simply been completely complicated
And Iím finding this daily drudgery is finally catching up to me
Itís time for this abandon to make much of You and less of me
I want to breathe in
I want to breathe in and out again

(Chorus)

O for a slower pace
Moving at the speed of sound sounds like a race to me
O to be at ease
Moving at the speed of sound gets hard on the knees

(Chorus)

Behind the Song:
ĒI wrote a majority of this record during the busiest season of my life. I was newly married, and my wife and I were both full-time students. We were also performing out of state every weekend. One weekend in particular, we left class, flew to Australia, played a concert, and flew back for class on Monday. I so needed a break and found myself longing for the rest that King David wrote about in Psalm 23. ďA Breath or TwoĒ is me asking God to provide that pause, that rest in the midst of this crazy life.Ē Ė Jimmy Needham
