03. You Are Loved

If I Had One Chance To Tell You Something
by Rebecca St. James



 

We were younger then, you and me, full of dreams, werent we?
I went my way, you went yours, where did you go, dear?
Someone said you had left the life we lived together then
This is my way of reaching out cause I remember

This is what I want to say to you
If I had one chance to speak to your heart
You are loved
More than you could ever know
This is what I want to say to you
If I had one chance to tell you something
You are loved
More than you can imagine
Imagine

If I told you would you believe, the narrow road, I did not leave
If I told you would you understand that Ive found truth
Are you jaded? Are you hurting now? How I wish that I could tell
Where your hearts atcan you see? Mine has found home

Not sure if Ive, made it clear enough
Its not my love I sing about
Everybody asks, Is God good?
I believe, He is
In fact I know, He is

Behind the Song:
This is a song thats very close to me. Its written about a childhood friend of mine that I grew up with in Sydney. I fell out of contact with him after leaving our Christian school to move to a different state. I ran into a mutual friend years later and asked how our friend, Daniel, was doing. This friend told me that Daniel had really fallen away from God and that hed been abusing drugs as well. As I was thinking about what I wanted to write about on this album, he very randomly came to mindand I felt that this random thought was actually placed there by God. I had the concept If I had one chance to tell Daniel something, what would I say to him? The message I felt God really laid on my heart was to tell himYou are loved. This is a song for the prodigalswhich is all of us. God is the father that has His arms open wide waiting for us. He wants us to run towards Him and He will run toward us. Its a song of hope and a message my generation needs to hear. No matter where youve been and what youve doneyou are loved. From this song came the album titleand really the key theme of the project.

I think Ive come to realize, yes, we need to stand in awe of God and be blown away by His power. But its really His kindness and His love that draws us to Him and into a relationship with HimHis love makes us desire to know Him and love Him in return. That is for me the most important message I need to sharethrough this album and in my life. From how I relate in my relationships with others to what I say onstage the message is we are extravagantly loved by God. - Rebecca St. James
