New song lyrics "Heart Hit"

(Written my Michaela, all rights reserved)

Everyone's got a story
But nobody wants to tell
So we sit in whitewashed tombs
Alone
Like we're the only ones in hell

Everyone has a rough spot
But we excuse our own
And blame it on our victim hearts
Until
We're the only ransomed soul

Well, everyone has a past
And everyone has a future
But for now our solitary selves
Join the crowd of nondisclosure

Last night I had a dream
Of an army too great to number
They were marching side by side
But not one of them saw the other

So I'll show you my wound
You don't have to show me yours
My guess is both of our hearts are torn
Torn!
So what are we waiting for?!

Secrets, stories, battles, glories
Wins and losses, we've all got it
Everyone's wound is different
But everyone's had their heart hit
Their heart hit
Yeah, everyone's had their heart hit

Everybody's pumping blood
Like arrows through their heart
We've all been born into this world
That's a good enough place to start

If you don't want to share
Don't pretend that no one does
Have the courtesy to sympathize
Because you've been in that rut

We're really all the same
Skeletons playing dress-up
Born and raised so differently
All tainted by Adam's mess-up

I think you're the victim
And the offender all the same
It's a real small world we live in
So who are you gonna blame?!

So I'll show you my heart
It's an ugly, beautiful mess
Show you the One who loved my soul
Enough to take upon my distress

Secrets, stories, battles, glories
Wins and losses, we've all got it
Everyone's wound is different
But everyone's had their heart hit
Their heart hit
Oh, their heart hit
Yeah, everyone's had their heart hit

Everything that you've been through
Everything you're crying over
Jesus nailed it to His body
So give up your load and give Him what He asked for

Your secrets, your stories, His battle, His glory

Great poem. Thought provoking. I especially love the line "Last night I had a dream
Of an army too great to number
They were marching side by side
But not one of them saw the other..." Powerful words...Thanks for sharing. My name is Bonny and I am writing a new book called the Paper Doll Princess, Walking as a New Creation.
