Meadows new single Tides released 7.1.15 / recorded & produced with Bryan Papic at Luckyhorse Recordings Lyrics: Capsized and taking on water, my life raft is going under. I clinch my fists with anger and fear. I won't accept that I've put myself here. Some things never change, but one thing remains the same, is when You'd show Your face, I always managed to turn and look away. Shifting tides, and crashing waves, those currents pulled me away, further and further away. Ever changing just like the sea, I put my faith in things that could be seen. But I know that You're still there, the waves still know Your name. I filled my cup up to the brim, with a poison known as bitterness, down the hatch I opened wide, I chased it down with pride. O to grace how great a debtor, daily I'm constrained to be. Let Thy goodness, like a fetter, bind my wandering heart to Thee. Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it, prone to leave the God I love. Here's my heart, Lord, take and seal it, seal it for Thy courts above. 'Cause better is one day in Your courts, than thousands elsewhere.
