Music Monday: On My Knees

For this Music Monday I chose a much more somber song. It is “On My Knees” by West of Here. This is one of those songs I instantly fell in love with both lyrically and instrumentally. There was a period of my life when running from God was all I knew to do. I’m not proud of this time, but it did shape my relationship with and dependance on Him in the future. This song also speaks to me on a deeper level with friends I know have experienced times of great need and when there was nowhere left to go, on their knees they went


“On My Knees”
West of Here

I’m tired of running these days
I’m tired of trying to put a smile on my face
I’m tired of living like everything’s okay
Cause I know better
Yes I know Better

I’m tired of looking for a sign
I’m tired of waiting for the stars to align
I’m tired of waiting till I finally get it right
Cause I know better
Yes I know better
So I’m falling down tonight.

So I’ll fall in your arms
And know that you’ll hold me tight
And I’ll close my eyes
And trust that you’ll lead me right
And I’ll never look back
Cause I’m done trying to fight
I’m done tying to fight
I’m on my knees tonight

I want to live like I am free
I want to show the world what you’ve done for me
I want to live my life like I gave everything
To leave here better
To leave here better

So I’ll fall in your arms
And know that you’ll hold me tight
And I’ll close my eyes
And trust that you’ll lead me right
And I’ll never look back Cause I’m done trying to fight
I’m done tying to fight
I’m on my knees tonight.
