Who Wants to Hear a Little Sanctus Real?

Have you ever just been driving along, feeling kind of down, and a song comes on the radio that really touches your heart?  I’m very eclectic when it comes to music in that I like a lot of different kinds, which is the definition of eclectic.  If you were to steal my iPod (I hope you don’t), you wouldn’t be able to tell my favorite music.  You might be thrown by how much Toby Keith I have on there, but it’s an Oklahoma thing.

I was on my way to school one day and a new song came on KLOVE and it made me stop in my tracks.  Not stop on the highway, but metaphorically stop in my tracks.  It’s by Sanctus Real and it doesn’t even come out until like March, but there it was on the radio just for me (and the millions of other people who listen).  Okay, so it may not have been just for me, but it was exactly what I needed to hear.  Just read the last two lines: When I don’t measure up to much in this life, Oh, I’m a treasure in the arms of Christ. This song is my anthem. This is the song that should play when I win my blogging award (Huh?). I really can’t build it up enough.

Here’s the video of them singing it live; and if you can’t watch it, the lyrics are listed underneath.  Or you can click here to hear the audio. It may not be what you needed to hear today, but it’s sure what I need to hear every day.  Seriously, you cannot NOT love this song, which is a double negative way of saying I hope you love it.  And not for nothing, but the lead singer is pretty cute too.

Well the past is playing with my head
And failure knocks me down again
I’m reminded of the wrong
That I have said and done
And that devil just wont let me forget

In this life
I know what I’ve been
But here in your arms
I know what I am

I’m forgiven
I’m forgiven
And I don’t have to carry
The weight of who I’ve been
Cause I’m forgiven

My mistakes are running through my mind
And I’ll relive my days, in the middle of the night
And I struggle with my pain, wrestle with my pride
Sometimes I feel alone, and I cry

In this life
I know what I’ve been
But here in your arms
I know what I am

I’m forgiven
I’m forgiven
And I don’t have to carry
The weight of who I’ve been
Cause I’m forgiven

When I don’t fit in and I don’t feel like I belong anywhere
When I don’t measure up to much in this life
Oh, I’m a treasure in the arms of Christ ‘Cause

I’m forgiven
I’m forgiven
And I don’t have to carry
The weight of who I’ve been
Cause I’m forgiven

    Um, excuse me, I live in Oklahoma but I don’t have any Toby Keith on my iPod. NONE. So wadarya sayin’? I do, however, have a little Sanctus Real…”I’m Not Alright”…because I’m not. 🙂

    Like I said on facebook, Forgiven should be your anthem. (If you don’t already have one–or if you do, you should change it to this).

  2. I recently just heard this song too and it did the same to me, made me just stop and listen and like it was just for me. Awesome!
