The Hardway

September 26 2005
So I was listening to some stuff on itunes when I ran into an old but familiar song...The Hardway by DC Talk. I absolutely love this song...its just amazing. It talks about how we sin, but God is there with his mercy for us every single time...and we get back up. It talks about how we learn it the hard way instead of listening to God from the very beginning. We have to learn it for ourselves. But that isn't to say that God won't help us every step of the way when we put our trust in Him. Songs like this is why I still think that DC Talk is probably the best christian band ever to walk the Earth. Out of all the many bands i've listened to, i've listened to them consistently throughout my entire childhood and youth. The message is strong and the words are real. Check it out. Here are the lyrics, enjoy.

Some people gotta learn the hardway
I guess I’m the kinda guy
That has to find out for myself
I had to learn the hardway, father
I’m on my knees and I’m crying for help

Now I’ve been high and I’ve been low
I’ve been some places that you will not go
I never thought there would come the day
When I wished I never would’ve lived this way
But I’ve been searching for a long, long time
I thought the devil was a friend of mine
I turned my back on everything that was true
And wasted years that belong to you

It took so long for me to see
That I’m a victim of nature and me
Left to myself I realize
I am the maker of my own demise

But you accept me every time and again
And never mention just how selfish I’ve been
Why must it always take me so long to see
That I have fallen but you will forgive me?

The warning signs are like flares in the night
Still I proceed my greed is in spite of the fire
I know that’s bound to burn
Why is it that I always gotta learn...
The hardway, the hardway, I had to learn the hardway
The hardway, the hardway, I had to learn the hardway

A lot of people do have September birthdays! I think I heard once that September is the most popular birth month. I think it has something to do with childless couples wishing they had kids around Christmas time... lol...
