about

This is the opener of the EP and sets the tone for what the EP is about. It's about losing someone close to you and coping with the grief, doubts, pain, and confusion that come with that from a Christian's perspective. How can we see God as good when something so devastating happens? That's the point of the EP and we want you guys to think about such things.

lyrics

One day, two days, where has all my time gone?

It seems just minutes ago I was sitting with you taking for granted our time together.

Providence!

Losing you has been the hardest thing, and growing old without you there still has an eerie ring.

Over time I know that I will soon fade away, and I’m comforted by the idea of seeing your face, but wow!

Here I am now quoting the only things that I know how!

Romans 8:28 rings through my mind, but sometimes it’s so hard to find you…through all this pain.

God, I’m trying to be the new man. I’m trying to submit to the King’s hand, but I fail!

Each time I fall though I’m lifted from these depths and I’m reminded that everything I am rests in you.

Cover me spirit because I’m naked now! Cover me Spirit because I don’t understand how life goes on after losing your best friend.

I’m learning to lean though on your everlasting arms.

I know that outside of your rule no thing can be done, the blood of Christ continuously washing me until I become one.

I long for that day. I long for your grace.
