Easter songs

Two indie rock songs always come to mind on Easter. If you have them you should listen to them today, if you don't it would be a great time to track them down. I put them up so that you can stream them here, please buy them from the artists if you like them:

Listen: Poor Old Lu- Friday to Sunday

Listen: Mineral- GJS

And the lyrics:

Poor Old Lu- Friday to Sunday
(Words by Scott Hunter)

Darkness fell across the land
Our hope fell in the sand
And there it was
Though for certain we stood still
The earth shook and spilled
Then gave it up
Could we believe our eyes
When life has tossed us aside?
So turn and hang your head
He is given up for dead
And so am I

So give me the light to understand
The fight to comprehend the whys
So give me the mind to step ahead
When I hear what You’ve said and hide

The night turned to day
The days fade away
And so it was
The hours wouldn’t pass
And forever couldn’t last
We gave it up
We were fixed on the door
Waiting for… is this a dream?
Tell us how to feel
Can it be that this is real?
What am I?

So give me the light to understand
The fight to comprehend the whys
So give me the mind to step ahead
When I hear what You’ve said and hide

We once were full of hope to know
He’s opened up our eyes
But if He walks across the sea
What does any of it mean
If He has died

But the stone was rolled away
And the angel came to say
He’s alive, He is alive
But the stone was rolled away
And we just have to say
He’s alive

So give me the light to understand
The fight to comprehend the whys
So give me the mind to step ahead
When I hear what You’ve said and hide

Mineral- GJS
(Words by Chris Simpson)

You woke me up in the morning
To say, "He is risen"
And I replied with a smile,
"He is risen indeed"
And somehow you always leave the room
Alive with truth and beauty
And carry yourself like you know
That it's all just a matter of time

And I said, "What if I'm too far down this time"
"Too proud to hope- too weak to climb"
But you just pierce me through with eyes
And I know I'm done

And I can
And carry yourself like you're sure of it
Like the stitches dissolved
And the wounds all heal in time
Your words are giants next to mine
And your thoughts are giants

I only hope that someday
I might resemble you in even the smallest way
I only hope that
You can be proud of me
