Don’t stop loving yourself again
Your mother never meant those words she said
Such erratic thoughts, best keep them to yourself
Scribble on your pages, place them high on a shelf

Blurry little thing seems your getting too thin
Oh you’ve painted your face with the trouble you’re in
Such imagination and it's gone to your head
Oh you're muted and fragile on the edge of your bed

There is no love, there is no right
There is no one to hold you tight
There is no love and there is no
There is no god, there is no

There is no love, there is no right
There is no one to hold you tight
There is no love and there is no
There is no god, there is no
There is no god, there is no

Don't go hating yourself again
Forever won't erase your Daddy's hand
Pretty little thing keep it all to yourself
Don’t want to lose respect from the devil himself

There is no love, there is no right
There is no one to hold you tight
There is no love and there is no
There is no god, there is no

There is no love, there is no right
There is no one to hold you tight
There is no love and there is no
There is no god, there is no
There is no god, there is no
There is no god, there is no
There is no god, there is no

Blow against the wind until the sparks fly
Blow against the wind until you set yourself
Blow against the wind until the sparks fly
Blow against the wind until you set yourself free

    General CommentI actually had the privilege of talking to Joel Shearer about this particular song.

    I did not want to mis-interpret the very subjective lyrics.

    Joel explained that he wrote this song about the state of his sister's life before she came to faith in God.
    The lyric like "there is no love, there is no right" and "there is no God, there is no" is not his personal feelings but actually the feeling of someone that did not believe in God.

    The repeated "blow against the wind" is a message to people like his sister. He is saying that it is so evident right in front of you that faith is right, and brings joy, and that you need it. He is saying that you can blow against what you know to be true until you get sick, until you think you may have made a difference but the only real way is to accept truth.

    I went on to talk to Joel about his spiritual position and he explained to me that he struggles to find a finite belief but he does believe in one God.
