Come Ride My Chariot With Me

Some people,as well as things, or songs leave lasting impressions on us that often confirm the sweet balance in our lives that we either have or would like to have. Lately I've been humming and singing some of the words to Gavin DeGraw's Sweet Chariot and realized as I focused and listened to the words why it is I like this song so much. It truly does take me away to a simpler place, a place where I can appreciate that which is around me. This year is going by so fast for me. It's nearly three quarters over as may be any one of our lives. As Gavin sings, "Seasons fill my mind and Cover me From bringing back More than a memory. When I think of certain moments and places in time, I realize it is the simple times spent with those who are on the same chariot so to speak that make it all worth while.

Come ride my chariot with me to a simpler place and time emotionally and physically.

Chariot - Gavin DeGraw

Staring at a maple leaf
Leaning on the mother tree
I said to myself we all lost touch
Your favorite fruit is chocolate covered cherries
And seedless watermelon ohhhh
Nothing from the ground is good enough
Body raised
It puts over me

[Chorus]
Oh chariot your golden waves
are walking down upon this face
Oh chariot I'm singing out loud
To guide me
Give me your:
Strength

Remember seeking moons of birth
Rings made mirrors of the earth
The sun was just yellow energy
It is a living promise land
Even over fields of sand
Seasons fill my mind and
Cover me
From bringing back
More than a memory

[Chorus]

You'll be my vacation away from this place
You know what I want
Holding that cup,
It's pouring over the sides
Make me want to spread my arms and fly

[Chorus]

Your be my vacation away from this place
You know what I want
Holding that cup,
Its Pouring over to the sides
Make me want to spread my arms and fly

I did not give the song that great thought. But, reading the lyrics does add a different dimension to the song.

It sure does, especially when you learn the meaning behind it. Thank you for commenting. :)
