05. Sometimes Cry

Mindsize
by Poor Old Lu



 

Don't delay for a minute
Cause if you do I'll know you're too far into it
I mean the world around us
The world around

To keep your head above water
To be humble amidst tears and laughter
Sometimes we need to hide
Sometimes cry

Run away
Far away
To Yahweh
He's my hideaway

Star-studded-super-step
You've turned around again
Well I can feel it inside
In His side

And I'll tell you what He sees
But first I must fall down on my own knees
Let me hold your hand
Holding our hands

I need to lower my head
I don't know if I can
I've been so lost
I don't know if I can
I really have to fall
I don't know if I can
I'll say it again
I don't know if I can

And now we're losing time
No, we can't say we never got a sign
The love is all around us
And it surrounds us



Behind the Song:
'Another song that had been recorded previously, it first appeared on our 1992 independent release, Star-Studded-Super-Step. Sometimes Cry was a fairly popular song in concert, partially because of the catchy chorus. The original recording featured an ending that literally fell apart with drum beats, guitars, and percussion going all over the place. This was accomplished with the original 8-track recorders 'SEL-REP' buttons, as they were called. Essentially, it allowed some tracks to be read from the play heads, while the other tracks were read from the recording heads. The Mindsize version featured a similar 'breakdown' at the end. Lyrically this song focuses on the refuge that we have in the Lord. It also focuses on the work that we have to do to find that refuge in Him. The song is summed up in the chorus, 'Run away, Far away, To Yahweh, He's my hideway'. Nick was kind enough to point out that the chorus rhymed 'away' 3 times. I hadn't noticed, I guess, .... and I was pretty stoked.' - Poor Old Lu
