Day 72: It’s Only

Since we’re going to have another American Idol episode tomorrow featuring the Top 4: Scotty, Lauren, James, and Haley (ugh, I hate her), I decided to go ahead and feature a song sung by one of the contestants of American Idol.

For today, I chose a Danny Gokey song entitled It’s Only.  It’s one of the most beautiful songs that I have heard in his album and I want to share said song with you people.

In our world today, most of us (admittedly) are materialistic people who forget morals and the important things–such as life, love, and helping those who are in need.  This song kinda delves into that problem and makes you feel like you would want to do something to help our brothers and sisters who are less fortunate than us.

Below are the lyrics to this song.  Until the next post, dream on; fly on!

It’s been 18 months and 14 Days
Bobby can’t get him a job
Repo man’s gonna take his van I hear
Bobby’s giving up on God
He needs a hand up and not a hand out
Hey, everybody’s gotta suffer
Don’t worry, don’t worry
It’s only my brother

Where is that poverty line
I’ve never really seen it
Look around I’m doing fine
I’m not really sure I believe it
On the other side of town schools are falling down
But me I’m riding in style
Don’t worry, don’t worry
It’s only a child

There’s a homeless woman with a shopping cart
Living on the street
Lord knows she can’t come in here where the pretty people meet
We’re all dressed in our Sunday best
And she smiles when she sees us
Don’t worry
It’s only Jesus

There’s a face in the mirror
A man that I can be
Lord, won’t you open my eyes
Won’t you help me see
A hungry child needs more than a piece of bread
Brother needs a job to get ahead
And the homeless need a place to lay their head
And as much as I’ve been giving
I could never give enough
Don’t worry
It’s only love

It’s only love
When you’re lonely, cold and empty
Only one thing to fill you up
And it’s only, and it’s only, and it’s only
It’s only love

There is nothing more that I enjoy doing than reading books and writing. I'm kind of a nerd like that, XD. I have been writing for 7 years and am the author of the YA novel "Winged: The Awakening" and "Winged: The Unraveling". Also, a YouTuber dealing with video games and gaming.
