SONG OF THE WEEK: Broken by Lifehouse

I really like this band and I really like this song.  With their deep rich voices, Lifehouse clearly displays the powerful feelings of brokenness.  But I love the way they reveal hope.  It’s subtle the way hope so often comes into a dark time in our life.  The lyrics say he’s still barely holdin’ on.  But what has he found to hang onto? The meaning he finds in the name of the Lord.  Sometimes you can’t hear Him, see Him or feel Him.  Sometimes our faith is just holdin’ on to the power of His name– faith in who He is…

I’m falling apart, I’m barely breathing
with a broken heart that’s still beating
In the pain (in the pain), is there healing
In your name (in your name) I find meaning
So I’m holdin’ on (I’m still holdin’), I’m holdin’ on (I’m still holdin’), I’m holdin’ on (I’m still holdin’)
I’m barely holdin’ on to you

I’m hangin’ on another day
Just to see what you throw my way
And I’m hanging on to the words you say
You said that I will be OK

The broken lights on the freeway left me here alone
I may have lost my way now, haven’t forgotten my way home

POWERFUL VIDEO!  Don’t miss it!
