Be My Escape

Loving this song from Relient K at the moment.  It's not a new song, and I feel the original (though sounding awesome) can cause us to loose the meaning of some of the words with its upbeat and fast tempo.

This acoustic version really let's it hit home though... I love these words.

"And I’ve been housing all this doubt and insecurity
and I’ve been locked inside that house all the while You hold the key
And I’ve been dying to get out and that might be the death of me
And even though, there’s no way in knowing where to go,
promise I’m going because
I gotta get outta here I’m stuck inside this rut that I fell into by mistake
I gotta get outta here And I’m begging You, I’m begging You, I’m begging You to be my escape."

"I’m giving up on doing this alone now
Cause I’ve failed and I’m ready to be shown how
He’s told me the way and I’m trying to get there
And this life sentence that I’m serving I admit that I’m every bit deserving
 But the beauty of grace is that it makes life not fair"

"I am a hostage to my own humanity
Self detained and forced to live in this mess I’ve made
And all I’m asking is for You to do what You can with me
But I can’t ask You to give what You already gave"
