TWO FOR TUESDAY {REDO}


Not every song that will be featured here will be what is generally considered as being “Christian” in the eyes of this world. For some will be anguished cries from the pit of despair, and others will be quite obviously ferverent rants of rebellion. Nonetheless, be assured that they will all be of our Heavenly Father (in one way or another) and I hope that you have been given ears to hear the message.

Peace of Mind
Boston

Now if you’re feelin’ kinda low
‘Bout the dues you’ve been payin’
Future’s comin’ much too slow
And you wanna run but somehow
You just keep on stayin’
Can’t decide on which way to go

Yeah
Yeah
Yeah

I understand ‘bout indecision
But I don’t care if I get behind
People livin’ in competition
All I want is to have my peace of mind

Yeah

Now you’re climbin’ to the top
Of the company ladder
Hope it doesn’t take too long
Can’tcha you see there’ll come a day
When it won’t matter
Come a day when you’ll be gone

Whoa

I understand ‘bout indecision
But I don’t care if I get behind
People livin’ in competition
All I want is to have my peace of mind

Take a look ahead

Take a look ahead

Yeah yeah
Yeah
Yeah

Now everybody’s got advice
They just keep on givin’
Doesn’t mean too much to me
Lots of people out to make-believe
They’re livin’
Can’t decide who they should be

Whoa

I understand ‘bout indecision
But I don’t care if I get behind
People livin’ in competition
All I want is to have my peace of mind

Take a look ahead

Take a look ahead

Look ahead

Babe
Tomorrow’s so far away
There’s somethin’
I just have to say
I don’t think I could hide
What I’m feelin’ inside
Another day
Knowin’ I love you

And I
I’m getting’ too close again
I don’t wanna
See it end
If I tell you tonight
Would you turn out the light
And walk away
Knowin’ I love you

I’m gonna take you by surprise
And make you realize
Amanda

I’m gonna tell you right away
I can’t wait another day
Amanda

I’m gonna say it like a man
And make you understand
Amanda

I love you

And
I feel like today’s the day
I’m lookin’
For the words to say
Do you wanna be free
Are you ready for me
To feel this way
I don’t wanna lose ya

So
It may be too soon I know
The feelin’
Takes so long to grow
If I tell you today
Will you turn me away
And let me go
I don’t wanna lose you

I’m gonna take you by surprise
And make you realize
Amanda

I’m gonna tell you right away
I can’t wait another day
Amanda

I’m gonna say it like a man
And make you understand
Amanda

Oh girl

You and I
I know that we can’t wait
And I swear
I swear it’ not a lie girl
Tomorrow may be too late

You
You and I girl
We can share a life together
It’s now or never
And tomorrow may be too late

And
Feelin’ the way I do
I don’t wanna wait
My whole life through
To say
I’m in love with you

  1. I used to love Boston, back in the day. Sigh. Nice memories when I hear those tunes.

  3. I can remember hearing "More Than A Feeling" for the first time on the radio in the living room of my best friend's home back in the spring of 1976. It absolutely blew me away. I will feature it, along with "Foreplay/Long Time," here in this series later on. Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Lin!!!

  4. Those lyrics hold a particularly special meaning for me since the name of my estranged youngest daughter is Amanda. For they accurately express my longing for her without having to change too much about them. Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Mike!!!

  5. Amen! I've heard God's voice through many a song that wasn't considered 'Christian'.

  6. Tragically, there are far too many who absolutely refuse to even consider such a possibility, my dear Aria. Thanks for the encouragement!!!
