Newsboys

In my humble piggy opinion, I think that Newsboys is good. Considering how they've improved so much these few years and the seniority they have in the music industry, they're really, really good. Plus, they're a Christian band. They sing about God, life and all the other things you and I experience daily.

I've known of them since long ago, but not until recently have I taken the effort to download their songs and listen. Perhaps their previous songs did not impress me, but now, this album "Go" really did! Just awesome the message they spread, the lyrics they sing, the music they arrange.

But I wonder why do people who have the same taste as I think that Newsboys are bad. I wonder. But who cares? I like their music. Believe me or not, I actually loop their songs countless times until I could hear the song running in my head.

So, the few songs that caught my attention are: Your Love is Better Than Life, Wherever We Go, Go, Something Beautiful, and I Am Free.

If any of you want their songs, why not just ping me or sms me or whatever we and give me your email address. I do not guarantee I have your addresses, you see. But anyway, support them if possible. I think they're as good as Switchfoot. Positive lyrics, fantastic rhythmic grooves, and.. well, just name it, and you have it.

Your Love Is Better Than Life
I dunno nothing that I haven't been taught,
I dunno why I was born into the family I've got,
I dunno if I ever had an original thought,
Maybe not, maybe so, maybe later, I dunno
I dunno how I can end a prayer, then turn on a friend,
I dunno what I was thinking when I just pressed send,
I dunno why I still criticize the things I dunno
I dunno, I dunno, I dunno, but this one thing I know

YOUR LOVE IS BETTER THAN LIFE
Without your love, I'm just a broken machine
YOUR LOVE IS BETTER THAN LIFE
Without your love, it's all a mindless routine
YOUR LOVE IS BETTER THAN LIFE
Without your love, I'm in another free fall
YOUR LOVE IS BETTER THAN LIFE
Without your love, I've got nothing at all

I dunno what goes down the moment we die
Do we get halos & harps? Do we sleep? Do we fly? I dunno
How, when and why this world will finally end,
Speculation's gonna grow, who knows best, I dunno
I dunno if I should push ahead or stop and grieve,
I lie awake and wonder how to make a city believe,
I dunno when it's a ministry and when it's a show
Maybe neither, maybe both, I dunno, but this one thing I know

YOUR LOVE IS BETTER THAN LIFE
Without your love, I'm just a broken machine
YOUR LOVE IS BETTER THAN LIFE
Without your touch I'm not a full human being
YOUR LOVE IS BETTER THAN LIFE
If I should ever leave, where would I go?
YOUR LOVE IS BETTER THAN LIFE
I look to you 'cause you're the lover of my soul

HERE'S TO THE LOVER OF MY SOUL
HERE'S TO THE LOVER OF MY SOUL

I dunno when to walk away or stand and fight
Just when I've got it wrong, I'm sure I heard you right
And when my arguments are watertight you expose every hole with a flash and a flood and I know
I hear you call in the eye of the storm and I know you've had my back since the day I was born still
Stoking my heart
Still stirring my head
You're my pillar of fire
You're the wine, you're the bread, and

YOUR LOVE IS BETTER THAN LIFE
Without your love, I'm just a broken machine
YOUR LOVE IS BETTER THAN LIFE
Without your love, it's all a mindless routine
YOUR LOVE IS BETTER THAN LIFE
Without your love, I'm in another free fall
YOUR LOVE IS BETTER THAN LIFE
Without your love, I've got nothing at all

YOUR LOVE IS BETTER THAN LIFE
I dunno nothing that I haven't been taught, I dunno why I was born into the family I've got,
YOUR LOVE IS BETTER THAN LIFE
I dunno if I ever had an original thought, maybe not, maybe so, maybe soon, maybe later, I dunno
YOUR LOVE IS BETTER THAN LIFE
I dunno when I've got it right or wrong, I dunno how I can wrap it in a four minute song, but I know
YOUR LOVE IS BETTER THAN LIFE
My grip is better when I'm not hanging on, your love is making us strong (all along)
Your love is better than life
