08. Leaving Ninety-nine

Worldwide
by Audio Adrenaline



 

I'm lost and broken, all alone on this road
the wheels keep turnin', but the feelin' is gone
when I fear I'm on my own
You remind me I am not alone
when You said

I'd leave ninety-nine
leave them all behind
to find you
for you alone
I'd leave ninety-nine
leave them all behind
to find you

it's dark and lonely and the path is unclear
can't move my feet because I'm frozen in fear
then you say, 'My child, my child -
I am always here, I'm by your side'

I'd leave ninety-nine
leave them all behind
to find you
for you alone
I'd leave ninety-nine
leave them all behind
to find you

you're never too far down
I promise you'll be found
I'll reach into the mud and mirely clay
pursue you to the end
like a faithful friend
nothing in this world can keep me away

I'd leave ninety-nine
leave them all behind
to find you
for you alone
I'd leave ninety-nine
leave them all behind
to find you

Behind the Song:
'This song steps away from the rest of the albumís theme a little bit, but itís one of my favorite songs. Itís a beautiful ballad about a lost Christian, or a lost person who has lost their reason to go on and canít figure it out anymore. God comes in and says ĎI would leave 99, leave them all behind just to find you.í Itís a reminder to Christians and non-Christians of how much God truly cares about us.' - Mark Stuart, 2003 (Audio Adrenaline)

'Tyler and I wrote it in a hotel room somewhere, probably in Iowa. We had the idea for years because that was going to be on the Underdog record. It was going to be called ĎLeaving 99í because it was 1999 and I had the idea of calling the record Leaving 99. It was going to be our Y2K song, coming out in the summer of í99. It would be a great record title, but we never finished it. Then Tyler and I finished it a couple of years later and it made it on Worldwide record. Tyler nailed it. It is a great song about how mysterious Godís love is. Itís not even logical on how much he loves us.Ē - Mark Stuart, 2006 (Audio Adrenaline)
