09. I Fade Away

For the Love of the Game
by Pillar



 

As simple minded as it seems
There is only one place for me to be
And its right here on my knees
Seeking Your face
Your embrace
Something that I've never felt before
Never felt before
I make it so hard to believe
That there is someone out there
Reaching out their hand to
Help me to my feet
I've seen too much
Forgot Your touch
Now I'm holding the hand
That holds the world
That holds the world

When I fade away
When I see Your face
I can feel You
And I fade away from myself
When I fade away
When I see Your face
I can feel You
And I start to fade

I'm still reminded of the days
When I turned my back on You
And told You we should go our
Separate ways
Well, I was wrong
For far too long
But now I've learned to
Never walk away
Never walk away
You've shown me life through
Different eyes
But I'll never see the things You see
No matter how hard that I try
So I let go
And lose control
And grab a hold of the hand
That holds the world
That holds the world

When I fade away from where I wanna be
I can feel there's something different burning inside of me

Behind the Song:
This is a slower, more reflective track about forgetting ourselves in Gods presence when we finally let go of insisting on doing things our way. As simple minded as it seems/there is only one place for me to be/And its right here on my knees/Seeing Your face/Your embrace/ ... I can feel You/And I fade away from myself. Rob says, To me, this is a worship song. When I fade, God takes over. This song illustrates James 4:8: Draw near to God, and Hell draw near to you. Rob also says that this song is about learning to come to God with our problems instead of trying to figure it all out in our heads. I can over-think things. But when I stop and just let God be God, when I stop and just look at Him, I dont have to think or try to figure out everything. Its not really that deep, man. Its simple: God loves you. So this song is just about being close to God, stopping, finding some silence, finding some peacea stand-still point in your life where you can focus on who God is, where you stop and say, I can see Your face. This track also features supporting vocals from Sarah Anthony of the band Breaking the Silence.
