New Love Song

I have a nice little mental list of Christian artists' love songs. I can't help it. I'm a girl. ;) Anyway, recently I added a brand spankin' new one to the list . . . "Love is Waiting" by Brooke Fraser. I hope it's okay that I share the lyrics with you . . . here they are:

In the autumn on the ground,
between the traffic and the ordinary sounds
I am thinking signs and seasons while a north wind blows through
I watch as lovers pass me by
Walking stories - whos and hows and whys
Musing lazily on love
Pondering you
I'll give it time, give it space and be still for a spell
When it's time to walk that way we wanna walk it well

I'll be waiting for you baby
I'll be holding back the darkest night
Love is waiting til we're ready, til it's right
Love is waiting

It's my caution not the cold
there's no other hand that i would rather hold

the climate changes, I'm singing for the strangers about you
don't keep time, slow the pace
Honey hold on if you can
the bets are getting surer now that you're my man


I could write a million songs about the way you say my name
I could live a lifetime with you and then do it all again
and like I can't force the sun to rise or hasten summer's start,
neither should I rush my way into your heart

Isn't that fabulous? This song is so anti-American-Culture. But that's why it's SO Good! It reminds me of that verse in Song of Solomon that goes something like, "Do not arouse or awaken love until it so desires." You know that one? I love how Brooke paints the importance of treading carefully into another person's life and waiting for the right time, not the feels-right time but the right time. Anyways. It's late, so farewell for now! Don't forget to take a jaunt to youtube and check out "Love is Waiting" by Brooke Fraser! [And while you're there, you might consider listening to Albertine too . . . it's good]
