02. Eagles

Wherever You Are
by Third Day



 

My pain and problems keep me chained
And my troubled heart makes me weak
I値l wait for You to comfort me
And in You I know I値l find my strength

I will soar on the wings of eagles
I will learn to fly high above this world
And I will soar on the wings of eagles
I will learn to fly
I will learn to fly high above this world

I tremble with this heavy weight
And I知 buried underneath my grief
I値l run to You and not grow faint

And I値l lay my burdens at Your feet

Behind the Song:
'Sometimes we find ourselves fighting life's battles with both arms tied behind our backs. Yet determined to not back down, we trudge on head first into war. We forget our enemy痴 weakness and we battle on foot, on his turf, and by his rules. Eventually we are driven to our knees and unable to pull ourselves up. God never intended it to be this way. He created us to soar like eagles. Why? Eagles fly higher than their enemies, and build their nests far out of the reach of their predators. Eagles are equipped with two sets of eyelids, one of which functions like sunglasses. When being chased by their enemy, they fly straight into the direction of the sun, blinding their predator. When being pursued by our opponent, we too should soar higher, straight towards the Son. I love how melancholy the song begins with almost a 'Theme from M.A.S.H.' mood and texture. It leaves the listener searching and wondering before busting wide open with hope and renewed energy. This song has an infectious groove, compliments of Tai's ferocious bass pulse. Don't be afraid to turn up the subwoofer.' Brad Avery (Third Day)
