SONG OF THE WEEK: Strangely Dim by Francesca Barestelli


First, I love Francesca’s voice.  Her full rich tones seem to welcome me into the song.  Second her lyrics always seem to be about my life.  Have you ever been to that place where you “can’t see past the things I pray today”?  I have.  Thankfully Francesca explains what we need to fix our eyes on…

 I’ve got all these plans piled up sky high
A thousand dreams on hold
And I don’t know why,
I got a front row seat
To the longest wait
And I just can’t see
Past the things I pray
Today

But when I fix my eyes on all that You are
Then every doubt I feel
Deep in my heart
Grows strangely dim
All my worries fade
And fall to the ground
Cause when I seek Your face
And don’t look around
Any place I’m in
Grows strangely dim

Sometimes where I stand
On this narrow road
Is in a raging storm
Or a valley low

chorus
