is so complex and far reaching, I could have taken five albums to
attempt to define all the seasons of love. But on this one I only
scratched the surface. I tried to be honest which is what Christian
albums more than ever need to be. I wrote about loving yourself, taking
love for granted, losing love, not loving yourself, being afraid of
love to the point of never giving love a chance, holding on to anger
which kills love in all other areas of our lives, repecting love as the
sacred thing that it is, and finally seeing God as the source of
eternal unchanging perfect love and making that our foundation for
basing all relationships on.
Road - The person in this song saw himself on a road
leading to death and destruction and called out to God for mercy,
forgiveness, and rededication.
Of Love - I hear a lot of people say that true love is
just a dream or a hope that fools believe in. I do believe that true
love can come to all if we never stop believing God. If you're alone
now, maybe it's just winter time or autumn; but spring time brings new
birth to all that died in winter. The trick is to not let your heart
become cold and hardened by the disappointment of the past.
Of Anger - Love will never get past the walls of hate you
build around your heart. We'll never be able to give or receive love
until we forgive everyone for the wrongs done to us.
The Wind Blows - I broke up with a girlfriend of mine and
it was devastating to me. Writing this song was part of my healing
Land - We made up a new term for an attitude of being
paranoid of love. This is caused by being hurt so many times in the
past. You never will let it happen again. But it's a no-win situation
because it also closes the door to anyone who could love you in a good
way. Satan wants you to have this same attitude towards God. Then he'll
have you by default.
Gone - This song is about not taking love for granted
while you have it - like so many people do.
Land - Satan is the father of lies and the great
deceiver. Drugs promise a place of escape that reality can't offer, and
so many kids and adults have believed the lie and are now dead or
addicted to a mind-altering, life-destroying substance leading them
straight to Hell.
Insane - I've never understood taking drugs. I know that
life is hard, but drugs only make life harder. My personal ultimate
statement against drugs is that I've never even tried them. Not one
joint, not even one taste of one beer. I only say this because it's
true and to show you that the statement that "everyone's doing it" is a
lie. Everyone's not doing it and you don't have to ever do it. And, if
you are... stop doing it. Drugs are sinful, stupid, and they'll kill
Not A Joke - Nowadays, things that once were sacred
arent' that sacred anymore. Like love from your past (verse 1), human
life (verse 2), and God's love (verse 3). The chorus says I think they
Love That Never Fades - This is the most important song
lyrically on this album. Without God's love that is unchanging,
unconditional, and perfect, what is there? Nothing. My point is there
exsits a foundation to build our lives around. A sanctuary from all
life's failures and disappointments - it never ceases to be there.
Receiving God's love means security. Security that no one should live
