Twenty-Four
10/21/09 at 03:35 AM by Jonathan Bautts
Twenty-four oceans
Twenty-four skies
Twenty-four failures
In twenty-four tries
Twenty-four finds me
In twenty-fourth place
With twenty-four dropouts
At the end of the day

Life is not what I thought it was
Twenty-four hours ago
Still I'm singing “Spirit,
Take me up in arms with You”
And I'm not who I thought I was
Twenty-four hours ago
Still I'm singing “Spirit,
Take me up in arms with You”

There's twenty-four reasons
To admit that I'm wrong
With all my excuses
Still twenty-four strong
See, I'm not copping out
Not copping out
Not copping out
When You're raising the dead in me

Oh, oh, I am the second man
Oh, oh, I am the second man now
Oh, I am the second man now
And You're raising these

Twenty-four voices
With twenty-four hearts
All of my symphonies
In twenty-four parts
But I want to be one today
Centered and true
I'm singing “Spirit,
Take me up in arms with You”
You're raising the dead in me

Oh, oh, I am the second man
Oh, oh, I am the second man now
Oh, I am the second man now
And You're raising the dead in me, yeah

I wanna see miracles
To see the world change
Wrestled the angel
For more than a name
For more than a feeling
For more than a cause
I'm singing “Spirit,
Take me up in arms with You”
And You're raising the dead in me

Twenty-four oceans
With twenty-four hearts
All of my symphonies
With twenty-four parts
Life is not what I thought it was
Twenty-four hours ago
Still I'm singing “Spirit
Take me up in arms with You”

I'm not copping out
Not copping out

23
10/21/08 at 09:48 PM by Jonathan Bautts
Since my 23rd birthday is today, here's the lyrics to one of my favorite songs of all time. As usual, the amazing Jim Adkins knows how to pretty much sum up my life.

I felt for sure last night
That once we said goodbye
No one else will know these lonely dreams
No one else will know that part of me
I'm still driving away
And I'm sorry every day
I won't always love these selfish things
I won't always live not stopping

It was my turn to decide
I knew this was our time
No one else will have me like you do
No one else will have me, only you

You'll sit alone forever
If you wait for the right time
What are you hoping for?
I'm here and now I'm ready
Holding on tight
Don't give away the end
The one thing that stays mine

Amazing still it seems
I'll be 23
I won't always love what I'll never have
I won't always live in my regrets

You'll sit alone forever
If you wait for the right time
What are you hoping for?
I'm here and now I'm ready
Holding on tight
Don't give away the end
The one thing that stays mine
