Burn for You, by TobyMac

***

I was listening to KLove the other day and  heard this song. The energy, the beat, and the words nailed me! Bigtime. I love to find songs that pump me up for a long run, hard bike ride, and a major write-fest (to use my friend JC’s word).

This song fit the bill on ALL levels!

I love the part where he sings, “I feel revived again, I am alive again; You got me lifted and lifted you life me up; I feel revived again, I’m energized again; You got me lifted and lifed you lift me up.

I love when I find a song that can remind me that really, the only one who can truly lift me up is God. He meets me NO MATTER where I am.

    Hey, I tried to respond to your question about this song on your blog. Will it only let you leave one comment a day?

    Anyway, DC Talk sings the song Colored People.

    I also like Aiesha Woods. We saw her in concert with TobyMac. She has a song out called Happy that I really like.

  2. JEN–DC talk and then TOBY MAC are awesome. Some of their stuff is a bit “rappy” for me, but some I really like. Especially to get pumped for something. Their words are awesome too. Don’t they sing a song Colored people? About how skin color doesn’t matter? I love that song.
    JC–NICE!
    Tracy–Thanks for swingin’ by.
    Gzusfreek–It IS FUNKY isn’t it. I surprised you with this one, didn’t I Ms. Gzusfreek! **smile**

  3. LOL, JC. Lynn, it’s funky! I hadn’t heard it. Toby Mac’s got a story too? huh? Maybe your the one that told me about his struggles in life. Anyway good song. I’m with you on the “I feel revived again, I am alive again; You got me lifted and lifted you life me up; I feel revived again, I’m energized again; You got me lifted and lifed you lift me up.

  4. I love TobyMac. I listen to alot of his music. I have all of his cds. I can’t really narrow it down to a favorite. When I go walking, I like listening to his more upbeat songs. Have you ever seen him in concert? He’s even better in person. Great energy in the room. I saw him about 3 years ago on New Year’s Eve at a youth conference in Gatlinburg Tenn. What a way to bring in the new year. ; -)
