Song-lyrics Sunday 8/14/11


This past month I found out that two of my favorite bands have decided to call it quits: The David Crowder Band and Revive…. it’s very sad for me as I will miss their music (and in the case of Revive, the many tales of automobile troubles), but I wish them all the best and pray that God blesses them and their families in whatever may come next for them. Since my last Song-lyric Sunday just happened to be the DCB, I decided to put up a song from Revive’s final album “Blink.” DCB is working on their final album and will do one final tour, playing their final show in January 2012. Revive has already played their last show. Be sure to check out the vid at the end, which also has the lyrics.

We Were Meant to Be
by Revive

How’d we drift so far apart?
Oh God, it breaks our hearts
We can hear heaven’s tears cry out
For wasted years
The time for change is now
Can you hear us calling out?

We were meant to be
A city on a hill
Shine like the stars in the sky
We were meant to live
For more than this world
So open our eyes to see
What we were meant to be
What we were meant to be, oh

Even in the darkest place
We’ll stand, we’re not ashamed
When fear and doubt try to hold us down
We’ll stand, we’re not afraid
The time for change is now
We can hear you calling out

We were meant to be
A city on a hill
Shine like the stars in the sky
We were meant to live
For more than this world
So open our eyes to see
What we were meant to be
What we were meant to be, oh

Start a brush fire in my soul
A flame that won’t die, won’t grow cold
Let it burn, let it burn
Start a brush fire in my soul
A flame that won’t die, won’t grow cold
Let it burn for You

We were meant to be
A city on a hill
Shine like the stars in the sky
We were meant to live
For more than this world
So open our eyes to see

We were meant to be
A city on a hill
Shine like the stars in the sky
We were meant to live
For more than this world
So open our eyes to see, oh God
What we were meant to be, oh
What we were meant to be, oh
What we were meant to be, oh
What we were meant to be, oh
