Narrow Stairs

Posted on Friday, May 23rd, 2008 under Life Reviews | No comments

This week, I bought the latest Death Cab for Cutie album, Narrow Stairs and it is just so gorgeous. The sound is immersive and the lyrics are spell-binding.

As I was reading a devotion this morning from Psalms, I fell into some thoughts about the song “I Will Possess Your Heart” that gave it some real meaning. In Psalms 16:9-11, David says:

No wonder my heart is glad, and I rejoice.
My body rests in safety.
For you will not leave my soul among the dead
or allow your holy one to rot in the grave.
You will show me the way of life,
granting me the joy of your presence
and the pleasures of living with you forever.

When I first heard the song, I thought it was about a boy pursuing a girl that isn’t really interested in him, but every time I hear it now, I hear God calling me, wanting to draw me closer. He is after my heart and has plans to guide my future, but only if I am willing to surrender my all.

Here are the lyrics for your enjoyment:

How I wish you could see the potential
The potential of you and me
It’s like a book elegantly bound, but
In a language that you can’t read just yet

You got to spend some time, love
You got to spend some time with me
And I know that you’ll find, love
I will possess your heart
You got to spend some time, love
You got to spend some time with me
And I know that you’ll find, love
I will possess your heart


bq. There are days when, outside your window
I see my reflection as I slowly pass
And I long for this mirrored perspective
When we'll be lovers, lovers at last

You got to spend some time, love
You got to spend some time with me
And I know that you'll find, love
I will possess your heart
You got to spend some time, love
You got to spend some time with me
And I know that you'll find, love
I will possess your heart
I will possess your heart
I will possess your heart

You reject my advances and desperate pleas
I won't let you let me down so easily
So easily

You got to spend some time, love
You got to spend some time with me
And I know that you'll find, love
I will possess your heart
You got to spend some time, love
You got to spend some time with me
And I know that you'll find, love
I will possess your heart
You got to spend some time, love
You got to spend some time with me
And I know that you'll find, love
I will possess your heart
I will possess your heart
I will possess your heart
