HOUSE OF THEIR DREAMS

by Casting Crowns

A corner office was his dream
More like a prison now it seems
Somewhere on the corporate climb
He left his warrior behind
Now hes just a worker at a daily grind
Steals his years and numbs his mind
His strength is fading, his dreams are blind
This is not the life he had in mind

She lies awake cause hes up all night
Staring at a screen that tells him lies
That the grass is greener on the other side
So shes at the gym fighting off the years
To be young again and calm her fears
That shell never be enough for him
Just as a young man catches her eye

Now theyre trapped in their own worlds, in their own wars
With their cell phones and the closed doors
Its funny how quiet and peaceful that it seems
But theyre all alone together
In the house of their dreams

Little sister, shes a sixteen-year-old princess
Lost somewhere between the swing set
And her brand new crushs chariot awaits
And big brothers rooms glowing with trophies that shout his name
But he’d trade all his high school fame
For some backyard catch with his hero again

So now theyre all dressed up in Sunday best
Sit up straight just like the rest
And they sing the songs of peace and rest that Jesus freely gives
And then their kids look up as daddy stands
And he takes his bride with trembling hands
Brother kneels at his fathers side as princess looks in the mothers eyes
Their tears tear down the walls as daddy prays

Were trapped in our own worlds and our own wars
With our cell phones and our closed doors
God, only You can save our family
And on this Rock, well build
On this Rock, well build
The house of our dreams

DOES LIFE HAVE A NAME?

Copyright 2013 Diana Rasmussen

Tried chasing money
Tired of make believe fame
Had lots of power
Just got devoured
*
I’m lonely and empty
In my fancy position
My name’s on the door
There has to be more
*
Does life have a name?
I’m tired of playing the game
Success feels like failure
Does life have a name?
 *
I’ve worshiped knowledge
with liars and politics
rules of tradition
lots of religion
 *
This world can’t fill me
My cup’s almost empty
I’m grasping at straws,
seeing all my flaws.
 *
Does life have a Name?
I’m tired of playing the game
success feels like failure
Does life have a name?
*
lonely in a crowded room
looking for a real relationship
Does life have a name?
