Face Of The Earth / Chuck @ Artist Development Interlude Lyrics
It's been a long time coming Since I saw your face Since we held it down Since we were in the chase It was the road less traveled The path less formed A skinny trail It was barely worn But we kept on walkin' and slippin' and talkin' and runnin' and fallin' and cryin' and crawlin' We were in the trenches On top of the world Young refugees but we were momma's pearls Where you been dog? Where you been?
I thought you fell off the face of the earth ...
It's been way too long and we've come to far For you drop out my life like a falling star Right off my radar Not a sign or a trace You know I had love for you that's bigger than mistakes Now Hope road is calling Let's pack you up and move 'Cause real friends are willing to intrude So I'm gonna push in cause I wanna love you well Let the ghosts of your past rest
Open up the door This is the first day of the rest of your life What are you waiting for? This is the first day of the rest of your life
Open up the door To life ...
Behold I stand at the door and knock If anyone hears my voice and opens the door I will come in ...

Song Description: "This is a song about a friend that I thought I had lost; I couldn't find them. I began writing these words on a scrap of paper, 'I thought you fell off the face of the earth," You're gone, where are you? Will I ever see you again? So it all began with this theme and it grew from there. Musically, I knew I wanted "Face of the Earth" to be warm. I wanted it to flow like a river rushing over you. I wanted it to be conversational so I chose to rap the verses. It's sort of like letting the listener in on what I would say if my words could actually reach this lost loved one. And I'm just gently reminding them that I am there for them in their storm and even more promising.... so is God." - TobyMac
