I've heard it said that a man would climb a mountain
Just to be with the one he loves
How many times has he broken that promise
It has never been done
I've never climbed the highest mountain
But I walked the hill of Calvary

Just to be with you,I'd do anything
There's not price I would not pay
Just to be with you, I'd give anything
I would give my life away

I've heard it said that a man would swim the ocean
Just to be with the one he loves
How many times has he broken that promise
It can never be done
I've never swam the deepest ocean
But I walked upon the raging sea

Just to be with you,I'd do anything
There's not price I would not pay
Just to be with you, I'd give anything
I would give my life away

I know that you don't understand the fullness of My love
How I died upon the cross for your sins
And I know you don't realize how much that I gave you
But I promise, I would do it all again

Just to be with you, I did everything
There's not price I did not pay
Just to be with you, I gave everything
Yes, I gave my life away

    This is one of my favorite songs. I just love the picture that Mac Powell paints here of the promises we make to people we love. How we say we'll do anything for them and that we never do those things we promise we'll do. Then the song shows how Jesus did those things, how he gave everything. He payed the highest price and gave his life for us because He loves us :)

    that is so true. i love where he says "I know that you don't understand the fullness of my love..." because we so cannot comprehend how much Jesus loves us. It's so overwhelming and yet he loves us more than we can imagine.

    No They are Christians and will sing about God who loves them, they have chosen to write their music about God because God was the one that gave them the talent and ability to write and play music.... So no...They shouldnt learn to write less about God and more about this "REAL" world....I wish other bands would write more about God and less about this FAKE world.

    This song is beautiful, to me it's so personal, it is like jesus talking directly to me and assuring me that although god gave us the gift of love, he displays and has displayed it in a way we could never do. and thats how awesome he is

    I've heard it said that a man would climb a mountain Just to be with the one he loves How many times has he broken that promise It has never been done.

    I've heard it said that a man would swim the ocean Just to be with the one he loves All of those dreams are an empty emotion It can never be done

    I've never climbed the highest mountain But I walked the hill of calvary I've never swam the deepest ocean But I walked upon the raging sea

    I SO love these lyrics.. it shows me that people may fail me, but Jesus NEVER has and NEVER will.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.
