It’s not a song till it touches your heart.
It’s not a song till it tears you apart.
After what’s left of what’s right and what’s wrong,
Till it gets through to you,
It’s not a song.
I can’t count the number of times I’ve heard song lyrics and thought “Yes! That’s it! I’ve never known how to say but that it’s right there.”
In my teen years, I was a huge Amy Grant fan. To be honest, I was one of MANY teen girls who loved her music. I still “go back” and listen to those songs. Especially to this one. Theses lyrics jumped out at me the first time I heard the song. It’s exactly how I’ve always felt about music. And I listened to this song so often that I wore out the first cassette tape I owned and had to replace it. After all these years, these lyrics still hit me right in the heart and this is a song I still go back to again and again because I find myself in these lyrics every time.
