Hot Trax | Show Me

10 04 2008

After watching a copy of the most recent BET’s Celebration of Gospel, we had to marvel at the inspirational message behind John Legend’s song, “Show Me.”

The three-time Grammy winner, Legend’s career has gotten off to an impressive start. After a solid debut CD, Legend second effort, “Once Again” was more low-key, but still quite effective.

This is not the first time music by Legend has really touched us. Several years ago, while going through a painful break-up, Legend’s stirring ballad, “So High” help us transition from that relationship to a much happier and fulfilling place.

We were so moved by his recent performance and song’s meaning that we posted the lyrics below.

Check out his video and share your feelings about this song.

Show Me
I realized as I lay down to sleep
We haven’t spoke in weeks
So many things that I’d like to know
Come have a talk with me
I need a sign, something I can see
Why all the mystery?
I try not to fall for make believe
But what is reality?
Where do we go?
What do we know?
Life has to have a meaning
Show me the light
Show me the way
Show that you’re listening

Show me that you love me
Show me that you walk with me
Hopefully, just above me
Heaven’s watching over me

Guess it’s funny how I say thanks to you
For all you’ve given me
Sometimes the price of what you gave to me
I can’t stop questioning
O God of love, peace, and mercy
Why so much suffering?
I pray for the world, it gets worse to me
Wonder if you’re listening
When people go
Why do they go?
Why don’t you choose me?
But someday I know
I’m gonna go
I hope you’re waiting for me

Show me that you love me
Show me that you walk with me
Hopefully, just above me
Heaven’s watching over me

Maybe we’ll talk
Some other night
Right now I’ll take it easy
Won’t spent my time
Waiting to die
Enjoy the life I’m living

Show me that you love me
Show me that you walk with me
Hopefully, just above me
Heaven’s watching over me
