I’m not a country music fan, but I have to think that George Jones and Merle Haggard are happy that they’re in a box and sound-proofed by 6ft of dirt. Country music lyrics are just so stupid these days.
I recently thought that country music reached a new low when Will and I heard, “she put the her in hurt.” We laughed til it hurt. Ok, full disclosure. We were only listening to country music because in the Cheraw, SC area a normal, non-satellite radio can only pick up 3 FM stations and guess what? They’re all country stations. Surprise.
Then this morning I was driving my daughter, Keely’s car and I heard, “You’re holy, holy, holy, holy.” I smiled with pride because my teenage daughter had her radio tuned to a Christian radio station. Yes, her momma and I have done well.
Then I heard, “I don’t need the stars ’cause you shine for me, Like fire in my veins, you’re my ecstasy,You’re my ecstasy.”
I looked at the radio and it was a country station. Did I misunderstand what he was saying? I would have sworn he said someone is holy. I Shazamed it and yep, that’s what he said. But holy to him is an acronym for “High on loving you”.
The lyrics go on to say, “You’re the healing hands where it used to hurt, You’re my saving grace, you’re my kind of church.”
Dude, this is so sad. 85% of relationships fail and those that result in marriage are doomed at a 50% rate. You’re betting your life on odds that aren’t great.
There’s only One who is holy. Better to trust Him with your life.
