about

A quirky-melancholic song realizing and confessing state of the heart and need. Inspired from Blaise Pacal's famous words about this vacuum inside our hearts longing to be filled and can only be filled by the Creator.

lyrics

I’m a ship lost at sea/ Blown by the wind aimlessly/ By the racing waves and tides/ I’m worn and wry /
No shore in sight/ No place to hide
I’m a house broken down/ My cracks are deep / From roof to ground/ I’m wishing for a chance/
To fix my messy leaks/ I’m hurting much/ And yet I’m getting numb

I need Jesus, I need Jesus/ I need Jesus, oh Jesus

I’m a forgotten truck / Stuck in a rut/ None alive but stains and dust/
Stifled by these grimes and stubborn rust/ On busted wheels/ Oh, I’m crippled still
I’m a paper plane in a hurricane/ Flew too high/ In my last flight out/
In the haste came down crashing in disdain/ And ended up melting in the rain

All this time, my world relied on fleeting wealth and alibis/ And all just now my reveries subside
And all the fragments of my shattered heart is all that’s left I’m pricked picking up
Who can make me well? Who can make well?
In those days gone by/ Even then and now
