Music Log – 030 | Songs from Mondo Cozmo and Tenth Avenue North
It has been a stressful week for reasons I don't want to elaborate on. But there was good news yesterday and that's all that matters right now. What a coincidence it is, that yet again, these are the kind of songs I have lined up for today. Anyway, it's time for another music log Friday.
The first track today is perhaps my best discovery last year. It is the song “Shine” by Mondo Cozmo. I do not remember where I heard it from. It was probably from the Top 50 Rock Songs of 2019 countdown. Honestly, not the song I expected to hear from an artist who does folk rock/indie rock music. But either way, this is a great song. It is about trusting in Jesus and living life the best you can, without telling others how to live their lives. It reminds me of something I read in the Word on Fire Bible — that each one of us is responsible for our own salvation. Stop looking at what other people are doing and focus instead on what you should be doing.
This song has some really good lyrics too. It starts out with this:
Stick with me Jesus through the comin' storm I've come to you in search of something I have lost Shine down a light on me and show a path I promise you I will return if you take me back
Then on the bridge there's the lyrics below. It nearly brought tears to my eyes when I first heard them. This is such a good song.
Come with me Mary through these modern lines Stick with me Jesus til' the end of time Shine down a light on me and let me know And take me in your arms and never let me go
