Like This: All Around Me

It must be pretty obvious that I’m not a fan of alternative metal music since a new friend of mine (hey, Jono!) suggested I give Flyleaf‘s acoustic version of ‘All Around Me’ a go instead of the original :P.

I feel like you need the context to the song though, so lead singer, Lacey Sturm’s testimony follows this song – this left me in tears and just amazed at how God reaches out to each individual, wanting so much to embrace one and show His love to them.

My hands are searching for you
My arms are outstretched towards you
I feel you on my fingertips
My tongue dances behind my lips for you
This fire runs in through my being
Burning I’m not used to seeing you

I’m still alive, I’m still alive

I can feel you all around me
Thickening the air I’m breathing
Holding on to what I’m feeling
Savoring this heart that’s healing

My hands float up above me
And you whisper you love me
And I begin to fade
Into our secret place
The music makes me sway
The angels singing say we are alone with you
I am alone and they are too with you

I’m still alive, I’m still alive, We’re still alive

And I can feel you all around me
Thickening the air I’m breathing
Holding on to what I’m feeling
Savoring this heart that’s healing

And so I cry (holy)
The light is white (holy)
And I see you (holy)

I’m alive, I’m still alive, We’re still alive

And I can feel you all around me
Thickening the air I’m breathing
Holding on to what I’m feeling
Savoring this heart that’s healing

Take my hand
I give it to you
Now you own me
All I am
You said you would never leave me
I believe you
I believe

I can feel you all around me
Thickening the air I’m breathing
Holding on to what I’m feeling
Savoring this heart that’s healed
