10. Wonderin’

Tonight
by TobyMac



 

Well I’m wonderin’ ‘bout the road ahead of me
Wonderin’ ‘bout the things you said to me
Wonderin’ if these dreams will ever do

And I’m wonderin’ ‘bout the way I spend my days
Wonderin’ if it’s even worth the chase
Wonderin’ if they’re stealin’ me from you

Uh! We didn’t know what to do
But you were lookin’ at me, and I was lookin’ at you
And we were thinkin’ it odd, but we were thankin’ our God
For the hope that He put down deep in our hearts

And yo, without a second to think
We was tourin’ around, and we were making that bank
And we was ridin’ in style, clockin’ them miles
With the songs that He put down deep in our hearts

Yeah, it’s been a minute, my friend
And you and I, we never thought it would end
But when we stopped to pause, it opens the doors
On some dreams that were put down deep in my heart

But hey, I’m always thinkin’ of you
And I can see your influence in the things that I do
Thick and thin, forever my friend
‘Cause there’s a bond that was put down deep in our hearts

And hey, if I could turn back time
I wouldn’t touch a day, I wouldn’t shade the shine
‘Cause I do know this, I won’t be remiss
With the memories locked away in my heart

Wonderin’ if we ever had a clue


(Featuring Matthew Thiessen)

Behind the Song:
“It’s just a warm look back at dc Talk, a warm feeling toward Michael (Tait) and Kevin (Max) and the beautiful side of what we did together, and recognizing their influence on me. I love what I do today, but there are times when I wonder, What if we stayed together? I’ve got these dreams I’m pursuing now, but are they stealing me from you? I think about Kevin and Michael on every song I write. That’s the truth.

“Musically, I think the song is interesting because we wanted it to be this bombastic drum sound against these live horns that felt very ’60s. I think it’s just a cool music-scape.”

(On Relient K’s Matt Thiessen’s guest vocals): “I signed Matt and Relient K to the deal with Gotee (tobyMac’s record label) about the time when I went solo, but we’ve only started getting closer in recent years, hanging out with them a little more. Matt and I kept talking about him guesting on my record. I thought that was a cool song to be on, first of all because he was a dc Talk fan. I just thought it would be a cool nod to get Matt on there. Plus, Matt’s voice is so warm that it really helped make the song even better.” - tobyMac
