Posts Tagged ‘Tenth Avenue North’

This long weekend is a time of refreshment, a time of rest, maybe even a time of redemption …

When I first heard the song, Worn, by Tenth Avenue North, I thought the words were echoing my hearts cry in my own ears, because I was … worn.

I needed to hear the story behind it, and you can too … just below (warning, if you are old like me his language might make you giggle … or roll your eyes a time or two 😉 ).

The lyrics are below:

“I’m Tired I’m worn
My heart is heavy
From the work it takes
To keep on breathing
I’ve made mistakes
I’ve let my hope fail
My soul feels crushed
By the weight of this world

And I know that you can give me rest
So I cry out with all that I have left

I know I need to lift my eyes up
But I’m too weak
Life just won’t let up
And I know that you can give me rest
So I cry out with all that I have left

My prayers are wearing thin
Yeah, I’m worn
Even before the day begins
Yeah, I’m worn
I’ve lost my will to fight
I’m worn
So, heaven come and flood my eyes

Let me see redemption win
Let me know the struggle ends
That you can mend a heart
That’s frail and torn
I wanna know a song can rise
From the ashes of a broken life
And all that’s dead inside can be reborn
Cause I’m worn

Yeah I’m worn”

Now check out the video to see if you, too, hear words echoing your hearts cry in your own ears.

“Let me see redemption win
Let me know the struggle ends
That you can mend a heart
That’s frail and torn”
