07. Last Night In America

Let It Go
by Paul Colman



 

Iím afraid to turn my TV on
And Iím hoping what they said is wrong
Can I just live my lifetime here and then move on?
Iíve had a million conversations about
Who is right and who is wrong
And how would Jesus want for us to carry on
Iím praying for Godís will but secretly wanting
Riches and blessings to pour in my hands
Is this my last night in America?

My tendency is to run away
And try to keep my family safe
But tell me how to hide away from all this hate?
The dominos that we see fall
Were set in motion long ago
Fear became a flower and the garden grows
Iím seeing the irony, the battle inside of me
You brought me peace now Iím at war with the world
Tell me is there some way out
Tell me that Iím not alone
Show me the mystery oh cornerstone
Is this my last night in America?

Is this my last night in America?
Or is it my last moment anywhere?
Our breath is a vapor thatís lost in the air
Is this my last night in America?

Well Iíve read about a God of war
And painted blood from door to door
Canonized in scripture and in black and white
And Iíve read about my Jesus Christ
And Iíve received His sacrifice
But is it turn the other cheek or is it stand and fight?
ĎCause Iím just a simple pilgrim Iím not a man with wisdom
What do I do when thereís a thief at my door?
Do I resist him or in silence assist him?

What seemed right isnít clear anymore
Is it the fall of a nation or the great tribulation
The eve of invasion or the book of revelation
Well Iíll wear my freedom as an invitation
To the God of creation who's keeping the score
Is this my last night in America?

Is this my last night in America?
Is this my last night in America?

Behind the Song:
"ďLast Night In AmericaĒ was inspired on my last night in the United States in 2001. We had all just experienced the horrors of 9/11, and I was returning home to Australia for a break. It was a time of personal, national and international uncertainty. I was wondering if it was my last night in America or even my last night on earth! The song documents my questions, confessions and observations. In the end, I leave my destiny in the hands of the Almighty." - Paul Colman
