I may just be...

a TOTAL freak, but I LOVE the song I just added to my playlist that I heard for the first time on the way in to work this AM!

Yes, it is from 2000, and I am just hearing it now.

Where was I???

Yes, it wasn't the most popular song at the time, but hey, I think it's awesome!!!

And yes, I'm gettin' old. I'll admit it, and I'm proud of it.

Here are the lyrics, which is what caught my attention. That and the catchy tune. Kind of reminds me a little of "We Are the World" from the 80's.

Yes. I am an 80's girl.

"Sheltering Trees"
Newsong (2000)
It's been said a friend is like a mighty sheltering tree
a place of refuge we can run when trouble comes for you and me
someone we can count on through the thick and thin
when the storms of life are blowing, there's
just nothing like a friend
(there's just nothing like a friend)

chorus:
We all need sheltering trees
Friends in our lives who'll get down on their knees
and lift us up before the king of kings
We all need sheltering trees

There've been days that I was sure that i couldn't make it through
Clouds of doubt came rolling in and i didn't know what i would do
I would've given in and said I just can't go on
if it hadn't been for a friend that helped me to be strong
(helped me to be strong)

chorus

bridge:
You can face the highest mountain and
the climb won't feel so high
or cross the darkest valley and it won't seem so wide
Nothing is impossible when a friend is by your side

chorus(2x)


If it's not already playing, be sure to scroll down to the bottom so that the player will start. Does anybody recognize any of the guest artists in the song??? Some are very famous now in Christian circles. No cheating. No google. Just your ears. At least two are VERY recognizable! :-)

More later.

One of my favorite songs! Rebecca St. James, Mac Powell from Third Day, Michael O'Brien (who then was in Newsong), Amy Grant, Natalie Grant, and I know there are more, but couldn't quite place the others. :)
