196 Days till i come home...i hope.

"24"
Twenty four oceans
Twenty four skies
Twenty four failures
Twenty four tries
Twenty four finds me
In twenty-fourth place
Twenty four drop outs
At the end of the dayLife is not what I thought it wasTwenty four hours ago

Still I'm singing Spirit take me up in arms with You
And I'm not who I thought I was twenty four hours ago
Still I'm singing Spirit take me up in arms with You

Twenty four reasons to admit that I'm wrong
With all my excuses still twenty four strong
See I'm not copping out not copping out not copping out

When You're raising the dead in me
Oh, oh I am the second man
Oh, oh I am the second man now
Oh, oh I am the second man now

And You're raising these twenty four voices
With twenty four heartsWith all of my symphonies
In twenty four parts
But I want to be one today
Centered and trueI'm singing

Spirit take me up in arms with You
You're raising the dead in me
Oh, oh I am the second man
Oh, oh I am the second man now
Oh, oh I am the second man now

And You're raising the dead in me
I want to see miracles, see the world change
Wrestled the angel, for more than a name
For more than a feeling
For more than a cause
I'm singing Spirit take me up in arms with You

And You're raising the dead in me
Twenty four voicesWith twenty four hearts
With all of my symphonies In twenty four parts.
I'm not copping out. Not copping out. Not copping out.

Hey Andrew!

I need your address so I can send you a wedding invitation. I lost touch, and need to catch up on your blogs, but let me know what you're up to! My email address is amyliz316@gmail.com.

Oh, and this is Amy Bilstein, by the way. :)
