Heart Song

There are a couple of songs that express, so uniquely, what is in me. It's as if the author climbed inside me and read the walls of my heart. This is one of those songs. It's All Around Me by Flyleaf. I'll put a link for it at the bottom of the post.

My hands are searching for you
My arms are outstretched towards you

God, I'm reaching for you. My arms are wide. I want to catch every bit of You. I know You are here. You permeate me. 

I feel you on my fingertips
My tongue dances behind my lips for you

I can feel you around me, in me, through me. I have no words, but my mouth tries to capture who You are to me. You understand anyway.

This fire rising through my being
Burning I'm not used to seeing you

I'm intoxicated in Your presence. Almighty God set me on fire. 

I'm alive
I'm alive

It's You living in me.

I can feel you all around me
Thickening the air I'm breathing

You are near. You are here. I am Yours. You are mine. You give me breath. I can't live without You.

Holding on to what I'm feeling
Savoring this heart that's healing

Without You I would melt into despair and anxiety (but you calm my heart with Your love. You adore me. Your heart jumps and laughs with mine, and hurts when Your girl aches*). 

My hands float up above me
And you whisper you love me
And I begin to fade

Into our secret place 

I'm still reaching for You. You reach down to me. Your welcome is overwhelming. I melt in Your grace.

The music makes me sway
The angels singing say we are alone with you
I am alone and they are too with you

I can't be still. My joy moves me. I am Yours. You are mine.

Father God
no words
only You

* Zephaniah 3:17

I love this "Heart Song!" The lyrics are beautiful, and the acoustic performance is touching. It spoke to me.
