A SONG FOR THE JOURNEY

I’ve said before how much I love words and music and how lyrics impact me.

These lyrics to Colton Dixon’s song More of You are getting a lot of airplay and really resonate with me at the moment. I always liked Colton and was a bit gutted when he was kicked out of Idol. He has built a great career since then though – his messages are strong.

These lyrics speak to me from the first lines. He sings of building walls which I know I do – and not in a good way! I need to surrender, fully surrender in many ways to have the best that is on offer.

Surrender

I made my castle tall
I built up every wall
This is my kingdom and it needs to fall
I want you and no one else
Empty me of myself
Until the only thing that’s left is

More of You
Less of me
Make me who I’m meant to be
You’re all I want all I need
You’re everything
Take it all I surrender
Be my king
God I choose
More of You and Less of me
I need more of you

This life I hold so close
Oh, God I let it go
I refuse to gain the world and lose my soul
So take it all I abandon everything I am
You can have it

More of You – Colton Dixon
