Jars of Clay – Worlds Apart

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged at 1:16 am by LynxLee


Great Vocals! Great Music. Jars of Clay is the best for Christian alternative music (actually, more like alternative, with Christian background). They are very popular for their first hit, Flood; which actually appeals to everyone last time. It sounds a bit like this, with a build-up in the song. Two songs that are so popular now from them is Love Song For A Savior & Dead Man (Carry Me). Don’t believe me? Read Last.Fm’s Jars Of Clay’s page, here.

Still, I Love This Song. The Vocals are AMAZING! =P The lyrics? Hey, do I need to comment on that? It’s off my rating! Haha.. I love the start, chorus & the ending. There’s two videos, check out the group that uploaded their video in YouTube.com, not too bad.. nice copy. The second video is obviously, Jars of Clay. Quality! Aren’t they great?

How does this relate to lives? Isn’t it obvious? This song is how life goes. It has so many meanings in many levels. How does it relate to my life? I’ve considered Christianity since March 2005; last Christmas eve, I started to take Christianity more seriously. Am I a Christian? I read the bible, sings hymns, go to church & pray in the name of Jesus Christ; am I one? I don’t think it matters to declare it. After all, we needn’t rush what we aren’t familiar with.

“I believed; therefore I have spoken.”
With that same spirit of faith we also believe and therefore speak,
2 Corinthians 4:13 (New International Version)

Still, Worlds Apart has so many meaning to me; from relationships, family, friends, religions & mainly, life. “What I need & What I believe are Worlds Apart”. In religion, there are different meaning; In life, there are different meaning. How it means to me means a lot to me. “Take My World Apart”; what do you think it means to you? It doesn’t matter how it means to me. Everyone needs to know how it means to themselves.

God Bless,
Dan

Can I be the one to sacrifice
Or grip the spear and watch the blood and water flow

To love you – take my world apart
To need you – I am on my knees
To love you – take my world apart
To need you – broken on my knees

Did you really have to die for me?
All I am for all you are
Because what I need and what I believe are worlds apart

Jars of Clay Performing This Song in Concert

I am the only one to blame for this
Somehow it all ends up the same
Soaring on the wings of selfish pride
I flew too high and like Icarus I collide
With a world I try so hard to leave behind
To rid myself of all but love
to give and die

To turn away and not become
Another nail to pierce the skin of one who loves
more deeply than the oceans,
more abundant than the tears
Of a world embracing every heartache

Can I be the one to sacrifice
Or grip the spear and watch the blood and water flow

To love you – take my world apart
To need you – I am on my knees
To love you – take my world apart
To need you – broken on my knees

All said and done I stand alone
Amongst remains of a life I should not own
It takes all I am to believe
In the mercy that covers me

Did you really have to die for me?
All I am for all you are
Because what I need and what I believe are worlds apart

[Additional lyrics:]

I look beyond the empty cross
forgetting what my life has cost
and wipe away the crimson stains
and dull the nails that still remain
More and more I need you now,
I owe you more each passing hour
the battle between grace and pride
I gave up not so long ago
So steal my heart and take the pain
and wash the feet and cleanse my pride
take the selfish, take the weak,
and all the things I cannot hide
take the beauty, take my tears
the sin-soaked heart and make it yours
take my world all apart
take it now, take it now
and serve the ones that I despise
speak the words I can’t deny
watch the world I used to love
fall to dust and thrown away
I look beyond the empty cross
forgetting what my life has cost
so wipe away the crimson stains
and dull the nails that still remain
so steal my heart and take the pain
take the selfish, take the weak
and all the things I cannot hide
take the beauty, take my tears
take my world apart, take my world apart
I pray, I pray, I pray
take my world apart
