#SLS 7/12/20 – Firelight, Water

This week Jim has given us the four elements of Air/Earth/Fire/Water as our prompts for #SLS. I have chosen to share Matt Maher’s Firelight and on a different chord Brad Paisley’s Water. I love both of these songs for different reasons. Firelight is a reminder that I do need God and Jesus to be my FIRELIGHT in my life. Brad Paisley’s love affair with water is every child and adult’s story if you think about it, the video for this song is pretty cool also!!

Firelight Lyrics

Dear Jesus where are you tonight
I bear a sadness deep inside
I’m aching for a faith in things I strain to feel
I need to know that you are real

Oh Savior open up my eyes
I wanna see You like a child
There is a haze on the horizons of my heart
Dear Jesus show me where you are

Be my firelight, be my firelight
Burning fierce and bright, be my firelight

How do I move on and be free
From all these things that I have seen
All of my memories are turning into scars
Oh my God put back what’s been torn apart

Be my firelight, be my firelight
Burning fierce and bright, be my firelight

If anyone remembers my name
If I’m ever known for anything
Let it be I ran into the night
Running with a firelight, firelight

Cause I don’t wanna stroll the streets of gold
While there’s still a soul to love
Let me run into the night
Running with a firelight, firelight
Burning with a firelight, firelight

Water Lyrics

Inflatable pool full of dad’s hot air
I was three years old
Splashin’ everywhere
And so began my love affair
With water

On a river bank
With all my friends
A big old rope tied to a limb
And your a big old wuss
If you don’t jump in
The water

Yeah when that summer sun starts to beatin’ down
And you don’t know what to do
Grab your swimming trunks
Ice up that old Igloo
Drive until the map turns blue

Daytona Beach on spring break
Eighteen girls up on stage
White t-shirts about to be sprayed
With water

Oh let’er go boys

Yeah when that summer sun starts to beatin’ down
And you don’t know what to do
Just go and grab someone you wanna see in a bathing suit
And drive until the map turns blue

You can stay right there
When the daylight’s gone
Play truth or dare
And it won’t take long
‘Fore you and her got nothin’ on
But water

All you really need this time of year
Is a pair of shades
And ice cold beer
And a place to sit somewhere near
Water
