11. The Haunting

Above The Golden State
by Above The Golden State


Stones throw away
I can see His agony
Start to bleed
Stones throw away
I can hear His adamant plea
ďLet it pass from meĒ

Save Lord, I pray
Save me from my enemy
Who prowls in deep
Iíll fight to stay awake
My spirit wills, my flesh is weak
So I fall asleep

The dark is creeping in
How suddenly my vanity
Betrays my speech
ďThis man is not my friendĒ
What a foolish lie
ĎCause You I canít deny Your mercy haunts me every night
In a dream

Stones throw away
I can hear my Saviorís plea
ďCome to meĒ
Iíve tried to run away
Why does He keep on asking me?
For my loyalty

My world is closing in
How suddenly my frailty
Finds words to speak
Iíll love You to the end
Until I die cause
You I canít deny Your mercy haunts me every night
In a dream

I need You now
Iím lost without You here
Forgive me all the times Iíve turned away
My love is only Yours
Iíve told You twice before
You I canít deny Your mercy haunts me every night
In a dream

The world is closing in
Jesus, Youíre my everything
My life to breath
Iíll follow you
Until I reach the end
ĎTil Your kingdom comes
ĎCause You I canít deny Your mercy haunts me every night
In a dream

Iíll follow You until I reach the end

Behind the Song:
ďWhenever Iíve sinned and donít bring it before the Lord in confession, I always find that thereís a weight or cloud over my head until I do so. Itís an incredible tension that pulls me back to His love. I believe itís the Holy Spirit crying out in me for holiness and righteousness. I likened it to a haunting, not a Halloween kind of haunting, but more like a love that provokes me to return to God. Perhaps thatís why some refer to The Spirit as the Holy Ghost. When Heís after us, thereís no getting away from Him!" - Michael Watson (Above The Golden State)
