07. Control

by Shawn McDonald


My heart is losing control over You / My heart is losing control over You // Lost
in everlasting love’s amorous glow / Set aflame despite the rain and seven seasons of snow / I got
accustomed to white knuckles from all the time I spent alone / When I gave away my heart, I was
neglected and disowned / And then You came to me and took the time to speak in poems / And whispered
that You’d like for me to make with You a home / And now from the ashes, like a phoenix, this new
love has flown / Despite the greatest hearts / I’m afraid to lose control / I sing, Selah, my love, and
Hallelujah, let go / Of the plans and demands that will maintain control / Of Your heart and Your
head and Your spirit and soul / I’m a lovesick man, and my love makes me bold / And I’ll craw l through
the wire, through the fire and the cold / And I’ll whisper Your name down every desolate road / Until
I find You again, and I make sure You know / That my love will never die / I love You / Every time You
get close to me / I feel my heart skip a beat / Every time I get close to You / I feel my heart skip a beat
/ Every time

Behind the Song:
"I wrote this little hook that said, “My heart is losing control every time I get close to You,” describing my relationship as I draw into God. It’s hard to describe, that moment when God reveals Himself to us. Anyway, I wrote the hook, but for the life of me, I couldn’t finish the song. I approached Josh and asked him if he’d write some verses. I love Josh’s writing, how he says things so poetically. So I just gave him freedom write about his own relationship with God and the theme of losing control when we get close to Him. We weren’t even together when we wrote it. We did it all by e-mail, and I think it turned out incredible." - Shawn
