Musical Interlude - Flyleaf

Hello, Loyal Readers, and welcome to the Monday of a short work week/school week. Yay! Here's a little music to get you moving. Flyleaf's long-awaited sophmore album, entitled Memento Mori, was released this month, and they did not disappoint. I must admit, I was concerned, because more often than not, when a band's debut album is super-successful (like Flyleaf's first album) they buckle under the pressure of living up to that standard when they make their second album. Luckily, that was not the case. In fact, I think they've really grown and this album is much richer and complex than their first album. Below is the first single, called "Again". If you like it, then I strongly recommend their other single, "Beautiful Bride." It rocks.



Again
By Flyleaf

I love the way that your heart breaks
with every injustice and deadly fate
Praying it all be new
and living like it all depends on you

Here you are down on your knees again
trying to find air to breathe again
Only surrender will help you now
I love you please see and believe again

I love that you’re never satisfied
with face value wisdom and happy lies
you take what they say and go back and cry
you’re so close to me that you nearly died

Here you are down on your knees again
trying to find air to breathe again
Only surrender will help you now
I love you please see and believe again

they don’t have to understand you
be still
wait and know I understand you
be still
be still

Here you are down on your knees again
trying to find air to breathe again
Only surrender will help you now
The floodgates are breaking
and pouring out

Here you are down on your knees
trying to find air to breathe
right where I want you to be again
i love you please see and believe again

Here you are down on your knees again
trying to find air to breathe again
Right where I want you to be again
See and believe!

Rock bands who are Christians... my favorite genre.

Check out their video/lyrics for "Beautiful Bride". Very, very cool.
