You're Not Alone - Owl City ft. Britt Nicole


www.last.fm
The Experience: Owl City brings a song you'd think would be a love song, with lines like "I'm lost without you, I'll never doubt you..." Then he spins it around. It's not his girl who gives him strength, it's God who's promising Adam "You're not alone." You're never alone. He is there.
Official Video: Waiting. 


The Meaning of Owl City's You're Not Alone is his own experience of God's love. 

  • God is strength to the weak. "You lift me up, again and again."
  • God is forgiving, not just forgiving the good, but even "in the face of my depravity, God so loved the world He died for me." 
  • God's love isn't fake dreams. Owl City doesn't say suffering stops with faith ("When it rains, it pours"), but promises that God tells him "You're not alone" throughout the pain. 
  • God's love will "call me home... beyond the galaxy" to a place where no pain or sorrow exists.

Ask Yourself: How does your experience of God compare to Britt's and Owl City's?


LYRICS:
Some days I barely hold on
When life drags me down
I wanna let go
But when my spirit is weak
You come to my aid
And strengthen my soul

I’m lost without You
I’ll never doubt You
Your grace is beyond compare
And though when it rains, it pours
You know all I have is Yours
You smile when you hear my prayer

You rescued me and I believe
That God is love and He is all I need
From this day forth for all eternity
I’ll never wander on my own
For I am Yours until You call me home
I close my eyes and I can hear You say
You’re not alone!
You’re not alone!

[Britt:]
Some days I just can’t go on
I stumble and fall
And I hang my head
But You reach out for my hand
And You lift me up
Again and again
Oh, yes, You do

[Both:]
I’m lost without You
I’ll never doubt You
Your grace is beyond compare
And though when it rains, it pours
You know all I have is Yours
You smile when you hear my prayer
You rescued me and I believe
That God is love and He is all I need
From this day forth for all eternity
I’ll never wander on my own
For I am Yours until You call me home
I close my eyes and I can hear You say
You’re not alone!
You’re not alone!

[Adam:]
In the face of my depravity
[Britt:]
For God so loved the world He died for me
Yeah
[Both:]
My fire burns ‘til He returns
And takes me home beyond the galaxy

[Britt:]
You rescued me and I believe
That God is love and He is all I need
From this day forth for all eternity
[Adam:]
All eternity!

[Both:]
I’ll never wander on my own
For I am Yours until You call me home
I close my eyes and I can hear You say
You’re not alone!
You’re not alone!

[Britt:]
You’re not
You’re not alone
Never alone...
