Tuesday Tunes: Fly My Pretties – “You Know Now”

Fly My Pretties has become a bit of a New Zealand institution. It’s a collaboration of a number of artists from around the country (mostly Wellington), who come together to record a live album every now and then. I think they’ve done 3 so far.

This track features L.A. Mitchell and is on their brand new album…coming out on March 19th. It’s groovy!


Happy Tuesday everyone!

Tuesday Tunes: Audrey Assad – “Blessed Are The Ones”

I’ve been mulling over this song today. Audrey Assad is an inspiration to me. She shines with the beauty of Jesus. Thank you Audrey for being so brave and singing out the truth for us all to hear. More of her story here.

Lyrics:

“We’re tossing pennies in the well
Empty pockets all turned out
Happy shining blessed are the ones who hunger

When our poverty is plain
I’ll try to burn it in my brain
Trace a line around your face to paint a picture

So further up and further in we have nowhere else to go
As we plant the seeds of toil and tears
It’s beauty we have sown

Blessed are the ones
Oh blessed are the ones
Blessed are the hungry ones

Lets build a house with turned out doors
So we can share what love affords
Pour ourselves out like a wine that we’ve been saving

When our well is running dry
And when we raise our glasses high
And we’re shining on the faces of the thirsty

So further up and further in we have nowhere else to go
But you give us seeds of toil and tears
It’s beauty we have sown

So blessed are the ones
Oh, blessed are the ones
Blessed are the thirsty ones

Love is all yeah love is all
Love is all yeah love is all
Love is all we need

So further up and further in we got no place else to go
And when all we have is what we need
It’s joy that we will sow

Blessed are the ones
Oh, blessed are the ones
Blessed are the hungry ones

We are blessed”

Tuesday Tunes: Ben Abraham “Speak”

Mr Luke Thompson just tweeted this amazing track from Ben Abraham.

Wow.

The soul cry of an artist laid bare.

 

I didn’t hear you enter
But I know you have been circling my room
I listen for your footsteps
Close my eyes and wait for you to move

You’re hiding like a memory
Teasing like a girl I used to know
You’re tumbling gambling
Calling to the weakness in my soul

Telling me to SPEAK

And in one reckless moment
You move a little to close to my ears
I grab a hold with both hands
And scramble to make sense of what I hear

I tried to tie you down
With synonyms and sad piano sounds
One moment you surrender
For a moment we both stand on the same ground

And I begin to SPEAK
I begin to say something

And all at once you pull away
I’m lost within your atmosphere
As quickly as you found me
I panic as you try to disappear

I reach out with my fingers
And try to pull the letters back in line
But your words spin out of order
And the pounding in my chest is out of time

And I just want to SPEAK
I just want to say something

I just want to SPEAK
Just want to say something
Can anybody hear me?
