This, is what I think.

This is one of my new favorite songs, by one of my all time favorite goups. Listen to the words, they seems very honest to me at this point in time, they're printed below.

WHAT THIS WORLD NEEDS by Casting Crowns.

********************************************

What this world needs, is not another one hit wonder with an axe to grind.

Another two bit politician peddling lies,

Another three ring circus society.

What this world needs, is not another sign waving super saint that's better than you.

Another ear pleasing candy man afraid of the truth,

Another prophet in Armani suit.

What this world needs, is a savior who will rescue,

A spirit who will lead,

A father who will love them, in their time of need.

A savior who will rescue,

A spirit who will lead,

A father who will love.

That's what this world needs.

What this world needs, if for us to care more about the inside, than the outside.

Have we become so blind that we can't see?

God's gotta change your heart before he changes your shirt.

What this world needs, is for us to stop hiding behind our relevance,

Blending in so well that people can't see the difference,

'cause it's the difference that sets the world free.

What this world needs, is a savior who will rescue,

A spirit who will lead,

A father who will love them, in their time of need.

A savior who will rescue,

A spirit who will lead,

A father who will love.

That's what this world needs.

*People aren't confused about the gospel, they're confused about us.

Jesus is the only way to God, but we are NOT the only way to Jesus.

This world doesn't need my tie, my hoodie, my demonination, or my translation of the Bible.

They just need Jesus.

We can be passionate about what we believe,

But we can't strap ourselves to the gospel,

because we're slowing it down.

Jesus is going to save the world,

but maybe, the best thing we can do,

is just get out of the way.*

Jesus is our savior, that's what this world needs,

A father's arms around you, that's what this world needs.

That's what this world needs.

My hands are searching for you
My arms are outstretched towards you
I feel you on my fingertips
My tongue dances behind my lips for you

This fire rising through my being
Burning I'm not used to seeing you

I'm alive, I'm alive

I can feel you all around me
Thickening the air I'm breathing
Holding on to what I'm feeling
Savoring this heart that's healing

My hands float up above me
And you whisper you love me
And I begin to fade
Into our secret place

The music makes me sway
The angels singing say we are alone with you
I am alone and they are too with you

I'm alive, I'm alive

I can feel you all around me
Thickening the air I'm breathing
Holding on to what I'm feeling
Savoring this heart that's healing

And so I cry
The light is white
And I see you

I'm alive, I'm alive, I'm alive

I can feel you all around me
Thickening the air I'm breathing
Holding on to what I'm feeling
Savoring this heart that's healing

Take my hand
I give it to you
Now you own me
All I am
You said you would never leave me
I believe you
I believe

I can feel you all around me
Thickening the air I'm breathing
Holding on to what I'm feeling
Savoring this heart that's healed
