"Monday Morning Church" as written by and Brent Baxter Emily Enderlin....
You left your Bible on the dresser
So I put it in the drawer
'Cause I can't seem to talk to God without yelling anymore
And when I sit at your piano
I can almost hear those hymns
The keys are just collecting dust
But I can't close the lid

You left my heart as empty
As a Monday morning church
It used to be so full of faith and now it only hurts
And I can hear the devil whisper
"Things are only getting worse"
You left my heart as empty
As a Monday morning church

The preacher came by Sunday
Said he missed me at the service
He told me Jesus loves me
But I'm not sure I deserve it
'Cause the faithful man that you loved
Is nowhere to be found
Since they took all that he believed
And laid it in the ground

You left my heart as empty
As a Monday morning church
It used to be so full of faith and now it only hurts
And I can hear the devil whisper
"Things are only getting worse"
You left my heart as empty
As a Monday morning church

I still believe in Heaven
And I'm sure you've made it there
But as for me without your love, girl
I don't have a prayer

You left my heart as empty
As a Monday morning church
It used to be so full of faith and now it only hurts
And I can hear the devil whisper
"Things are only getting worse"
You left my heart as empty
As a Monday morning church

You left your Bible on the dresser
So I put it in the drawer.

    General Commentit's about a man whose girlfriend/ wife/ lover died... and he's lost his faith in god because of it...
    he's hiding his sadness in anger ["i can't seem to talk to god without yelling anymore"] and he knows it.
    this song is so sad. =\

    General Commentthe video alone makes me cry, but the meaning of the song is very powerful. i think the meaning behind it is that a man's wife died... and he's remembering her... he just can't let go...
    "the keys are just collecting dust, but i can't close the lid..."
    and that feeling of being alone, and that God doesn't care about you because he's taken away the ONE thing that makes you happy...
    "i can't seem to talk to god with out yellin anymore"
    and the whole "monday mornin church" thing...
    that's a beautiful example, because there is NOBODY in church on monday, therefore it's empty... there:)

    General CommentThis song is really sad. It's about a man who's heartbroken so he forgets about being faithful to the Lord...
