Tune-In Tuesday

It's time for Week 2 of Tune-In Tuesday. I don't think anyone participated last week, but that's OK. I love music. It's my goal to share my favorite music with you. I'm hoping to come up with a graphic for this, but can't decide if it's worth it if no one participates ...

Anyway, to refresh everyone's memory, my point is to just share some songs that either are my current favorites or have really hit home as of late. I'm attempting to limit myself to two songs per week, but you can feel free to share as many as you want. To read more about why I decided to do this, check out last week's post HERE. Here are my choices for this week:

1. The Words I Would Say by Sidewalk Prophets ~ I have heard this on the radio a few times recently, and thought it was so good. When I attended Winter Jam on Friday, they were there - so I bought the CD. AWESOME song! Anyone who is struggling should hear this! I don't know if this is the official video or something someone created to go with clips from the movie Fireproof. Either way, it's an excellent song!


Three in the morning,
And I'm still awake,
So I picked up a pen and a page,
And I started writing,
Just what I'd say,
If we were face to face,
I'd tell you just what you mean to me,
I'd tell you these simple truths,

Be strong in the LORD and,
Never give up hope,
You're going to do great things,
I already know,
God's got His hand on you so,
Don't live life in fear,
Forgive and forget,
But don't forget why you're here,
Take your time and pray,
These are the words I would say,

Last time we spoke,
You said you were hurting,
And I felt your pain in my heart,
I want to tell you,
That I keep on praying,
Love will find you where you are,
I know cause I've already been there,
So please hear these simple truths,

Be strong in the LORD and,
Never give up hope,
You're going to do great things,
I already know,
God's got His hand on you so,
Don't live life in fear,
Forgive and forget,
But don't forget why you're here,
Take your time and pray,
These are the words I would say,

From one simple life to another,
I will say,
Come find peace in the Father,

Be strong in the LORD and,
Never give up hope,
You're going to do great things,
I already know,
God's got His hand on you so,
Don't live life in fear,
Forgive and forget,
But don't forget why you're here,
Take your time and pray,
Thank God for each day,
His love will find a way,
These are the words I would say


2. Monster by Skillet ~ I told you last week that I LOVE Skillet! ;-) This song is special to me. Not because I can relate to it (although there are times I can), but because my kids love it. They ask for it all the time. There's a (what I consider cheesy) effect toward the end of the song that cracks my kids up. The car (where the CD currently resides, and has for months) fills with the musical laughter of my kids, and that makes this song that much better! I also wanna add that this song makes me think of some characters I've become acquainted with recently: Dexter, from the Showtime series of the same name, and Edward Cullen from the Twilight series. Anyway, here's the song:


The secret side of me, I never let you see
I keep it caged but I can't control it
So stay away from me, the beast is ugly
I feel the rage and I just can't hold it

It's scratching on the walls, in the closet, in the halls
It comes awake and I can't control it
Hiding under the bed, in my body, in my head
Why won't somebody come and save me from this, make it end?

I feel it deep within, it's just beneath the skin
I must confess that I feel like a monster
I hate what I've become, the nightmare's just begun
I must confess that I feel like a monster

I, I feel like a monster
I, I feel like a monster

My secret side I keep hid under lock and key
I keep it caged but I can't control it
'Cause if I let him out he'll tear me up, break me down
Why won't somebody come and save me from this, make it end?

I feel it deep within, it's just beneath the skin
I must confess that I feel like a monster
I hate what I've become, the nightmare's just begun
I must confess that I feel like a monster

I feel it deep within, it's just beneath the skin
I must confess that I feel like a monster
I, I feel like a monster
I, I feel like a monster

It's hiding in the dark, it's teeth are razor sharp
There's no escape for me, it wants my soul, it wants my heart
No one can hear me scream, maybe it's just a dream
Maybe it's inside of me, stop this monster

I feel it deep within, it's just beneath the skin
I must confess that I feel like a monster
I hate what I've become, the nightmare's just begun
I must confess that I feel like a monster

I feel it deep within, it's just beneath the skin
I must confess that I feel like a monster
I've gotta lose control, he something radical
I must confess that I feel like a monster

I, I feel like a monster
I, I feel like a monster
I, I feel like a monster
I, I feel like a monster
