What do you think about when you read these lyrics?

Frail
Jars of Clay

Convinced of my deception
I've always been a fool
I fear this love reaction
Just like you said I would

A rose could never lie
About the love it brings
And I could never promise
To be any of those things

Chorus:
If I was not so weak
If I was not so cold
If I was not so scared of being broken
Growing old
I would be...
I would be...
I would be...

Blessed are the shallow
Depth they'll never find
Seems to be some comfort
In rooms I try to hide

Exposed beyond the shadows
You take the cup from me
Your dirt removes my blindness
Your pain becomes my peace

Chorus:
If I was not so weak
If I was not so cold
If I was not so scared of being broken
Growing old
I would be...
I would be...
I would be...

...frail

  • This song is one my husband and I have been working on to sing on our next camping trip with our renaissance group. There are Christians and Pagans alike in our group, so I'm hoping that it's not to "Jesus-Freak" for our Pagan friends, LOL.

  • I don't think it's "Jesus-Freak". LOL. It has a very spiritual message, which is awesome for a Renaissance group.

  • Sounds a bit sadomasochistic to me. Just not my cup of tea. I prefer songs that are uplifting in spirit.

  • I agree with isabellalecour..... What's up with this part?

    "Blessed are the shallow
    Depth they'll never find"

    Does this mean what I think it means? That shallow people are better off?

  • If I remember correctly, the song is actually supposed to be from Christ's POV.

    "Blessed are the shallow, depth they'll never find" : I'm not too sure about this line by itself, to be honest.

  • Here is one definition of shallow that I found: having or showing a lack of depth of understanding or character  maybe they are blessed because of their lack of understanding?  Thats all I can think of that would make sense.

  • Maybe it's like saying "ignorance is bliss"?

  • Koukla1 yea that is I was thinking. Maybe it is talking about people who do not have the mental capacity to understand the concept of salvation?

  • "Maybe it's like saying "ignorance is bliss"? "

    That's what I was thinking... Not exactly a positive message to me.
