All the Pretty Things

Okay, I would never have believed I could fall prey to contemparary Christian music. But as you can see from my music page, that fall came along with everything else in November last year.

Nor would I confess to being one of those dreaded things - a fangirl. But out of all Christian bands, Tenth Avenue North is the one that speaks most closely to my heart, with songs like "Beloved", "You Are More", "By Your Side", "Love is Here", "Times", "Let It Go" and now...

Right now, I love this song by Tenth Avenue North, which I have heard twice on two seperate occasions, not liked much, but for some reason it has stuck in my head continuously the past two days. It's called, "All the Pretty Things".



We are, we are, we're caught in the in between
Of who we already are and who we are yet to be
And we're looking for love but finding we're still in need
It's only what we have lost will we be allowed to keep

And we're waiting but our eyes are wandering
To all this earth holds dear

Look at all the pretty things
That steal my heart away
I can feel I'm fading
'Cause Lord I love so many things
That keep me from Your face
Come and save me

We run we run to finally be set free
But we're fighting fighting for what we've already received

So we're waiting but our eyes are wandering
To all this earth holds dear

Look at all the pretty things
That steal my heart away
I can feel I'm fading
'Cause Lord I love so many things
That keep me from Your face
Come and save me

We are we are caught in the in between
But we're fighting for what we already have received
We are we are caught in the in between
But we're fighting for what we already have received


Look at all the pretty things
That steal my heart away
I can feel I'm fading
'Cause Lord I love so many things
That keep me from Your face
Come and save me.
