Without You, I am done for

Without You, the first time I heard the song I enjoyed it. And up until a few weeks ago, I just thought it was a good song.

I listened to it again, watching a lyrics video on YouTube, I realized it was much more than a good song. I read some of the comments, and it appears that people think the song is about a break up. Perhaps it is. But after listening to the song, I realized something. It really personifies my dependency on Christ. It demonstrates how I am so completely dependent on Him.

I can’t win, I can’t reign
I will never win this game
Without you, without you
I am lost, I am vain,
I will never be the same
Without you, without you

I won’t run, I won’t fly
I will never make it by
Without you, without you
I can’t rest, I can’t fight
All I need is you and I
Without you

All of these lines state that we are desperate for companionship not to mention our desperateness for God.

Without God we can’t win. We’ll be lost, floundering in vain. We won’t be able to even make it through, enter true rest, hold our own ground against the world. If we keep with God, things become even better. We can fly in this world, we can climb mountains never encountered before. We’ll enter a rest that we’ve never known before.
