Songs For Our Times #17

Chrissy Metz - Talking To God (Audio) - YouTube

I believe music can inspire, give hope, make you cry, make you think, and a million other things. I want to start posting some music that I really think speak to the times we are in. As you know, I listen to everything so tune in every day, never know what you will get.

For our 17th song, I chose Talking To God by Chrissy Metz. I chose this song for two reasons. One, I do not think we talk to God, or listen for his response, as much as we should. Two, when you are sitting around or talking to God or whatever and a name pops in your head, reach out to them. You might just save their life.

Lyrics:

I was catchin’ up with an old friend
Nothin’ too heavy, just checking in
How’s is goin’, how’s your mama and them
And for once, he talked more than me
Said, I hear a lot about you ’round here
Yeah, I know it’s been one of them years
I get it man, you do the best you can
And still wind up on your knees

I was talkin’ to God last night
About why things happen the way they do
Yeah, and He shed a little light
On why I’m goin’ through, what I’m goin’ through
Everything under the sun
Why some get it all
And some people fall out of love
I was talkin’ to God last night
Your name came up

It still stings just a little bit
So many things I’d do different
I’m still learning the difference
Between movin’ on and forgiveness

I was talkin’ to God last night
About why things happen the way they do
Yeah, and He shed a little light
On why I’m goin’ through, what I’m goin’ through
Everything under the sun
Why some get it all
And some people fall out of love
I was talkin’ to God last night
Your name came up
Your name came up

I hope you’re doin’ alright
Hope you’re doin’ just fine
Hope you think about me
Every once in a while

I was talkin’ to God last night
About why things happen the way they do
Yeah, and He shed a little light
On why I’m goin’ through, what I’m goin’ through
Everything under the sun
Why some get it all
And some people fall out of love
I was talkin’ to God last night
Your name came up

I was talkin’ to God, talkin’ to God last night
Your name came up
