interlude [shaping clouds]
the song itself
In the many years of my life, I've tried to rationalize my faith. I would hear people say that it's the way to prove faith: show how you see it, tell how you hear it and prove what is unproven. Almost like you can scientifically prove everything if you just work hard enough.
And then there is the Bible, telling us that we will meet Jesus in the clouds.
“Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Then we will be with the Lord forever.”
— First Thessalonians 4:17
Try and explain that.
What if we would just accept that there is an aspect of faith that makes us sound crazy? What if the message of the cross sounds like foolishness to those who don't believe?
I've accepted that there is a craziness in my faith, and that it's part of faith to embrace it. Because, honestly, it's not that crazy.
LYRICS AND CHORDSHEET
Some call me crazy,
like I've made a mistake
Who would still trust others nowadays?
And for a second I thought:
well maybe they're right
Maybe I've been deaf all along
Some say I'm old-fashioned,
like a bald-headed monk
Straight out of a movie or a smelly old book
And for a moment I wondered if I'm that old
If my ways are retired and gone
My ways, retired and gone
And I'll be flying into the sky
Soaring with my lover,
shaping clouds He and I
And forever He shall be mine
Just a step on the water will do
Trusting the voice of a ghost will do too
I realize I'm trusting the words of a dead man
Even though I believe He's alive
I will shout for revival in desert-struck lands
Like a man who was blind but now sees
Like a man who realises his need
Trusting the voice of my God will do
