Hummingbird Lyrics

Words and music by Shaun Groves

Feathered, tethered
Feels like all the world's a cage
Worked up, run down
In this race to earn a wage
Something - inside
Tells me I was made to
Split the sky
Tell me why I'm

Living like a hummingbird
(hungry for the blue)
Getting nowhere fast from all my work
(stuck inside this view)
If you've got one eye on the sparrow, Lord
(I'm standing still for you)
Could you spare one for the hummingbird

Dead lines, this grind
Got me beating 'gainst the wind
Want more from life
Than just spinning 'round and getting by
Not satisfied just

Repeat Chorus

Save me from this discontenting
Never ending, spirit bending
Pattern, I go round and round and
Round and round and round again
Yea I'm stuck inside this circle I just
Know there's better out there because
I can feel it in my wings, so I sing

Story Behind The Song:
MATTHEW 5:6 "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness for they will be filled."

Surrender transforms our human hearts from stone to flesh and makes them slaves to the Spirit of God who moves us to obey His commands (Ezekiel 36:26-27). Now the surrendered person is propelled by a new desire for right living and right thinking that beats alongside an old desire for happiness and self-fulfillment. Jesus says, "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness."

Blessed are those who feel weighted down and discontent by the expected ambitions of this world. Blessed are those who realize working like a hummingbird brings no end to the hunger pangs and only tethers them to a mundane and self-absorbed existence. Blessed are those who shake a fist in the face of advertisers, educators, politicians, religious fanatics, lovers and tempters of all shapes and sizes and shout, "You can't give me what I crave! Nothing here beneath the sun can make us holy or make us one. Only Spirit and second birth can satisfy my constant thirst and pour out Heaven here on earth. You can't give me what I crave!"
