The Great Divide... Song of the Moment





Song of the Moment

Love this song!
This song, and entire album really got me through more than a few dark days post divorce. It turned out to be one of my "go-to" albums for sure.


Scott Stapp is the lead singer
for the band Creed.
This is his first solo record.


The entire album lifts me up.
Now, his songs are mostly
centered around god
and the whole religion theme.
Which is cool.
Although I'm having a bit of a
problem with that realm
at the moment.


And so I just plug in whatever it is that's inspiring me and turn his incredible words and passion
into my own!


There's slow parts
for you to quickly reflect.
And you can't help but feel empowered by the guitar licks. They sound so simple, but they summon up an over-powering
need to be happy.
It's pretty neat.


And then the chorus
hits you right in the fucking face!


It gives you the chance to sing so loud at the top of your lungs in those moments when nothing else could ever do, and by the time the song ends, you're fucking bristling with emotion and able to conquer ANYTHING!
Any-fucking-thing!


Give it a listen and let me know if you feel the same way about it.


I'm sure there will be a few
more songs from this album
that end up here as well.
But let's absorb this
awesomeness first!


Whatever your great divide
is at the moment, be it a good one or bad, doesn't even matter people. Because this song
packs the punch to push you
right over that finish line
into the arms of glory!


To make that "good" moment
even better. Or turn that "shitty"
situation into a much more manageable moment.


I'm fifty-fucking-two...
and somehow music
still
has the power to move me!


Play it loud mutha!


Scott Stapp solo album The Great Divide







( Scott Stapp )



(( Lyrics ))

I have run to the ocean
Through the horizon
Chased the sun
I've waited for the light to come
And at times I would give up


You have
Wrapped your loving arms 'round me
And with your love I'll overcome
You have
Loved me when I was weak
You have
Given unselfishly
Kept me from falling... falling
Everywhere but my knees


You set me free
To live my life
You became my reason to
Survive the great divide
You set me free


I've been on heaven's doorstep
With the door open
One foot inside
I've cried out
God give me answers
Please hush child I'll tell you why


You have
Loved me when you were weak
You have
Giving unselfishly
Kept you from falling... falling
Everywhere but your knees


You set me free
To live my life
You became my reason to
Survive the great divide


You set me free
To live my life
You became my reason to
Survive the great divide
You set me free
You set me free


Oh...
Our love is beautiful
Oh... ooh isn't this beautiful


Times have changed
but you remain
My everything
Our love is beautiful
Stood by my side
Helped me survive
The great divide
Isn't this beautiful


You set me free
To live my life
You became my reason to
Survive the great divide


You set me free
To live my life
You became my reason to
Survive the great divide


You set me free
To live my life
You became my reason to
Survive the great divide


You set me free
Set me free
You set me free
