13. This Time

The Great Depression
by Blindside



 

All seems wasted now you comb your hair
While your eyes search for a backdoor to get out
All you could do was to leave your deeds at the door
As you entered this room of sickness and doubt

But I saw you put down the memories in your coat just before
Now you want to drink but need someone to pour
To pour your heart out

This time
You know this is real
When you’re scared to reveal
This time
Could you leave this now
Even if you knew how
This time
Looking over your shoulder
You have become older
This time
Are you afraid to die?

With nothing left the pressure is off
To become all you needed to survive
With a color black you would not be blessed
In a church that decides color and puts a price
On a paradise you now seem to know so well
But I know
I see Jesus in your eyes so kiss the sky… and leave this now
Now I have seen what grace looks like

This time
You know this is real
When you’re scared to reveal
This time
Could you leave this now
Even if you knew how
This time
Looking over your shoulder
You have become older
This time
Are you afraid to die?

We had an intimate talk
With God you and I
Me with my words
And you in silence
All you said was
I liked that
But I saw Jesus in your eyes

This time
You know this is real
When you have nothing more to reveal
This time
Would you leave this now
Even if you knew how
This time
Looking over your shoulder
You have become older
This time
You’re not afraid to die

Behind the Song:
'When I was in South Africa, we visited a guy in the hospital named Sipho. He knew he was going to die. Knowing he was so close to death, we prayed with him and we watched his eyes change. I have never seen something change so dramatically. It was like watching a light in his soul be turned on.' - Christian Lindskog (Blindside)
