Count Me Out

 

Count Me Out
I tried to trust you but I can’t outrun my doubt
A bitter resignation ballad

Show me one more time the pretty pins stuck in your map
Pitch me your projections, share with me your stats
State your vision statement and your five year plan
Then count me out, out. Count me out, out.

Your bullet points are hollow and your preaching leaves me cold
I’d love to help you save the world if you could save my soul
But since you’ve dealt yourself the winning hand – I fold
Count me out, out. Count me out, out
Count me out. Count me out

Paint a picture of a brighter, better me
Help me help myself be all that I can be
I tried to trust you but I can’t outrun my doubt
Count me out, count me out

I’m wrapped around the ropes and my eyes are swelling shut
My back is on the canvas. Was this the deal we struck?
Is this a handshake coming or your final punch?
Count me out. Count me out.

Paint a picture of a brighter, better me
Help me help myself be all that I can be
I tried to trust you but I can’t outrun my doubt
Paint a picture of a brighter, better me
Help me help myself be all that I can be
I tried to trust you but I can’t outrun my doubt
Count me out,

Count me out
Count me out
Count me out

Faithful And True

Help us remember, you never forget
The promises made to your children

Here’s a new song folks, fresh out the box! Faithful And True is celebration of God’s faithfulness with a big chorus and a bluesy feel. It might work gospel style too. (Or polka, thrash metal or alt country. Download the chord sheet and give it a try!)

The chorus has been hanging around since 1997 and has survived a key change and several time signature changes, but the verses are a result of recent digging through the Bible (mostly Isaiah & Psalms) to see what it says about God’s trustworthiness and care, and some helpful feedback from you the readers (give yourselves a pat on the back).

If you like the song, share it on Facebook or Twitter using the buttons or just generally pass the mp3 around. And please please PLEASE leave me a comment. You encouragement is so valuable to me!

When we were children you taught us to stand
You carried us when we grew tired
And even in old age, you carry us still
Like a lamb in the arms of her shepherd


In each day of trouble, you keep us safe
Sheltering us with your presence
Why should we fear that the earth will give way?
You’ve promised to always be with us


Your love endures,
Your love endures,
Forever and ever and ever


Lord you are faithful and true
Your name is Faithful and True
Faithful in all that you do
You never leave, you never forsake us
Righteous in all of your ways
Loving to all you have made
Forever you will remain
Faithful, faithful and true


Lord keep us blameless and strong ’till the end
We are weak and the devil is ruthless
Our confidence rests in your resolute will
To complete what you started within us


Your love endures…


Help us remember, you never forget
The promises made to your children
Our names are engraved on the palms of your hands
Jesus, You will not leave us as orphans


Your love endures…
