Song Squawk – Without Shelter

In the mid nineties, I had a little red Buick and a big ol’ bass box in the trunk, and would listen to “Christian Rock”, cranked to 11.

(What did you say?  Huh?  Can  you say that again, I didn’t hear you….)

I have gotten away from that genre for many reasons, the least of which may be a loss of hearing, but some songs have stuck with me over the decades.

The artist’s I listened to sought to reflect Scriptural teaching for the most part. They ranged from “preaching” pop culture religion to significant theological teaching. As I listened to the lyrics, I found some to be quite challenging.

To be honest, I listened because I could justify the rock beat with “sanctified lyrics”.

Occassionaly I will post a song, supply the lyrics and make a comment or two. If you decide to listen to the tune, turn the speaker down unless you are already deaf. Some of the songs tend to have a certain “volume” about them!


This post will consider the song

Without Shelter – by Eternal Decision

The verse that I loved to sing along with was the following.

Without shelter
Without you
Lost and all alone
Trying on my own
I need you now
I need you forever

And you first loved me
Now I’ll love you forever

These guys sound alot like Metallica, but this particular tune falls into the ballad genre IMHO.

Take a listen!

Without Shelter – Eternal Decision

Without Shelter – by Eternal Decision

I was a beggar on the street
A lonely soul
I was lost without a home
And I had nothing
That this world has to give
Thought I’d always be alone

Without shelter
Without you
Lost and all alone
Trying on my own
I need you now
I need you forever
And you first loved me

Now I’ll love you forever

I was the prideful one
It seemed I had it all
But you’ve shown me I was poor
And I had everything this world
Has to give
But inside I needed more

Let me know what you think of the lyrics, and of the tunes!
