Jamie Grace - Hold Me

Couldn't get any better! :)






I love, I love, I love, I love the way you hold me
I love, I love, I love, I love the way you hold me
I love, I love, I love, I love the way you hold me
I love, I love, I love, I love the way you, the way you

I've had a long day, I just wanna relax
Don't have time for my friends, no time to chit chat
Problems at my job, wonderin' what to do
I know I should be working but I'm thinking of you and

Just when I feel this crazy world is gonna bring me down
That's when your smile comes around

Oh, I love the way you hold me, by my side you'll always be
You take each and every day, make it special in some way
I love the way you hold me, in your arms I'll always be
You take each and every day, make it special in some way

I love you more than the words in my brain can express
I can't imagine even loving you less

Lord, I love the way you hold me
Whoa, oh, I love the way you hold me
Whoa, oh

Well ya, took my day and you flipped it around
Calmed the tidal wave and put my feet on the ground
Forever in my heart, always on my mind
It's crazy how I think about you all of the time

And just when I think I'm 'bout to figure you out
You make me wanna sing and shout

I love the way you hold me, by my side you'll always be
You take each and every day, make it special in some way
I love the way you hold me, in your arms I'll always be
You take each and every day, make it special in some way

I love you more than the words in my brain can express
I can't imagine even loving you less

Lord, I love the way you hold me
Whoa, oh, I love the way you hold me
Whoa, oh

I'm so grateful and thankful for all you've done
Wish I could tell you in a short story or poem
But all I have is my voice and this guitar
And you have my heart

Oh, I love the way you hold me, by my side you'll always be
You take each and every day, make it special in some way
I love the way you hold me, in your arms I'll always be
You take each and every day, every day, every

I love the way you hold me, by my side you'll always be
You take each and every day oh-so-special
I love the way you hold me, in your arms I'll always be
You take each and every day, make it special in some way

I love you more than the words in my brain can express
I can't imagine even loving you less

Lord, I love the way you hold me
Whoa, oh, I love the way you hold me
Whoa, oh
Oh, I love

I love, I love, I love, I love the way you hold me
I love, I love, I love, I love the way you hold me
I love, I love, I love, I love the way you hold me, hold me, hold me

An Escape Into Fantasy

She walked with random steps:
some long, some short,
some fast, some slow.
Lost in thoughts,
away from self;
her feet dragged her along.

The roads were almost empty,
the streets as though abandoned.
Where did all the people go?
She wondered,
but did not stop to look.

The last song was left unsung,
A story incomplete or so,
But how did it matter now?

She heard some voices behind, 
but did not turn to see.
The voices from her past,
that tormented her, 
ridiculed her, used her.

She fastened her pace.
Broke into a run.
 But where was she running to?
The voices would soon come for her.

But how did it matter now?
For she had conquered her fears,
she had silenced the voices.

Her hands gave away,
And what appeared now,
looked like wings.
Oh, how she had longed for them,
And now it had come true.

She flung her wings in the air,
her body fighting the gravity,
as she rose up and flew,
into the sky and over the clouds.
She soared in the wide blue atmosphere,
the past was now mere history,
and her pains just a vague memory.

For she had escaped into fantasy!

Mumbai's Lifeline

The twelve coached serpent slithers on the rail
Pausing, spewing, swallowing, speeding
Overloaded, overburdened
But undeterred and undaunted
It goes on with its task.
Mission impossible, made possible.

Into the Void

It was a cold, windy night. He stared into the darkness from out of his window, his eyes in search for a glimmer of hope.

But all he found was darkness and more darkness. He longed to be comforted, to be understood, but time and again he found himself alone; alone in this battle called life. All his dreams lay shattered, torn into pieces. The days were long and the nights even longer. Sleep was rare, less painful. But then, there were these nightmares, the screams, the cries; the fear of getting lost in the woods.

The morning light was brutal too. The chirping of the birds did not help either. The happy faces on the street stabbed him each time they passed by.They reminded him of a life, he could have had. The sight of children made his heart ache.  Laughter, depressed him. At times, the pain became unbearable and he sought out means to find an outlet to his bottled up emotions. But his eyes refused to relent, they refused to pour.

And then there were these attempts in picking up the broken pieces, but to his dismay he always failed. The more he immersed himself in work, the more alienated he felt. Meaningless, everything had become meaningless to him.

He'd once been a good son, a sincere student, an affectionate husband, a loving father. But now, he was all alone.

"Life has to go on. No matter what, the battle has to be fought", he thought as the sun rose from above the horizon. It was a new day. A new beginning.

He took out his pen to sign his first alimony cheque.

You're All I Need

It's so true
You're all I need
I've come this far
but when I look back
You made the mountains 
look so easy
And the walk never
was so lonely
Filling my heart with hope
Giving a reason to live
Guiding me through it all
Picking me up when I fall
Jesus, you're all I need.
