03. THE NEARNESS

Church Music
by David Crowder Band



 

Brilliant bright, our salvation
Took the fall to hold us up
All the weight of our condition
Lifted away from us

Blessed love, falling under
Sacredness taking hold
Split the air the sound of thunder
Heaven begins to unfold

And the nearness of there
Feels more near
To here

We can feel the breath of the angels
See the walls bend and shake
The sky's in a tremble
Let the dead wake
To sing the songs of the heavens
See the dawn start to break
The bond starts to loosen
Feel the earth shake

Darkest night, brought redemption
Innocence' divine embrace
In the light of all creation
Heaven and earth start to twist

And the nearness of there
Feels more near
To here

We can feel the breath of the angels
See the walls bend and shake
The sky's in a tremble
Feel the ground break
We can
Hear the songs of the heavens
See the world come awake
The bond starts to loosen
Feel the earth shake

Blood of a Savior
Pushed back the fall
Love of a Healer
Hell overcome

And the nearness of there
Feels so near
To here

We can feel the breath of the angels
See the walls bend and shake
The sky's in a tremble
Let the dead wake
To sing the songs of the heavens
See the dawn start to break
The bond starts to loosen
Feel the earth shake




Behind the Song:
'If the bridge section of Alleluia, Sing was a whispered hint of a certain sound that would permeate much of the Church Music album, The Nearness is the blatant embodiment of it. From the outset the song is driven by a melody played not on a guitar, but on a synthesizer that could very well be found on numerous DanceNow CDs ordered off of rambunctious late night television commercials. The open high hats generously placed on the upbeats confirm this suspected influence quickly. The bass and programming refuse to take a back seat, rather, they establish the foundation on which the entire song is constructed. This is also the first instance of a special guest on the record (Flyleaf’s Lacey Mosley) helping the band capture the blur between here and there. It is mysterious, this is sure.' - David Crowder
