Vince Scheuerman

ok more good music for you all--

here is a great acoustic version of the song called "Rise", written and played by Vince Scheuerman. This is a song he wrote in response to the tsunami that devastated East Asia a few year ago but i think its also a song about rebuilding in our hearts from wounds and loss. There comes a time in all of our lives when we must rise, like Jesus, and so we do. After the suffering, after the Crucifixion, we rise. Death is not the last word.

Vince's band is called "Army of Me" and Vince's music is deep and personal and powerful- love it. You can hear him sing this song with his whole band elsewhere on youtube, but i like this acoustic version. and Vince is Catholic too!




Lyrics:
I've been reaching for the stars.
I've been stretching out so far.
Am I getting any closer
than I've ever been before?

I was lying in the gutter.
I was crawling in the street.
Now the servants are all sitting
in the most distinguished seats.
So rise, rise,
Like a star, you will rise.

I'm rebuilding this house
that was taken by the waves.
Oh, this time, I'll make a mansion,
Oh, this time, I'm not afraid.

I was lying in the gutter
and I was crawling in the street.
I was looking for an answer,
Well, the answer, it found me.

So rise, rise,
Like a star, you will rise.
 Rise, rise,
Like a star, you will rise.

Well, strengthen my ankles,
It's time to walk.
Rise up, rise up.
My heart's unlocked
and I have been hiding for much too long.
It's time.

Rise, rise,
Like a star, you will rise- my love
Rise, rise,
Like a star, you will rise.
Rise, rise,
Like a star, you will rise.
Rise, rise,
Like a star, you will rise.

Rise, rise,
Like a star, you will rise.
