About

Do you ever feel like you don’t want to be yourself? That you wish you were someone else, even just for a while, someone who is doing better than you? I bet most if not all humans feel like that at some point or other in their lives. And that’s what this song is all about.

Lyrics

Where is the path to Pisgah’s rumored heights?
What are the sunset colors by the seaside?
How does a smile light a close friend’s eyes?
I can’t see, I can’t see it

What is the whisper of a baby’s sigh? (Hear a baby sigh)
How does it feel to sing and dance in sunlight? (Sing and dance in sunlight)
When will the grounded forest bird take flight? (Forest bird take flight)
I can’t dream, I can’t dream it

Don’t wanna be sad or depressed anymore
Don’t wanna be crawling around on the floor
Don’t wanna be standing halfway out the door
Don’t wanna be, don’t wanna be, don’t wanna be me

Don’t wanna be sad or depressed anymore
Don’t wanna be crawling around on the floor
Don’t wanna be standing halfway out the door
Don’t wanna be, don’t wanna be, don’t wanna be me

I owe
So although
I’d let go
I wait for

A signal
While I groan
Will I grow?
I don’t know…

Just wanna be firm on the rock, not on sand
Just wanna be able and willing to stand
Just wanna be happy to be who I am
Just wanna be, just wanna be, just wanna be free

Just wanna be free

Deuteronomy 34:1-4

Then Moses climbed Mount Nebo from the plains of Moab to the top of Pisgah, across from Jericho. There the Lord showed him the whole land—from Gilead to Dan, all of Naphtali, the territory of Ephraim and Manasseh, all the land of Judah as far as the Mediterranean Sea, the Negev and the whole region from the Valley of Jericho, the City of Palms, as far as Zoar. Then the Lord said to him, “This is the land I promised on oath to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob when I said, ‘I will give it to your descendants.’ I have let you see it with your eyes, but you will not cross over into it.”

Matthew 7:24-27

24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”

Ephesians 6:13b

…so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
