(+LYRICS) MUSIC REVIEW: YOU SAY BY LAUREN DAIGLE “COULD IT BE MY EARS? THIS SONG SOUNDS EXACTLY LIKE…”

The song “You say” is a song by gospel artiste- Lauren Daigle. Take a gander at the lyrics below…

LYRICS TO YOU SAY BY LAUREN DIAGLE

VERSE 1

I keep fighting voices in my mind that say I’m not enough
Every single lie that tells me I will never measure up
Am I more than just the sum of every high and every low?
Remind me once again just who I am, because I need to know (Ooh oh)

CHORUS

You say I am loved when I can’t feel a thing

You say I am strong when I think I am weak

You say I am held when I am falling short

And when I don’t belong, oh you say I am yours

And I believe (I), oh I believe (I)

What you say of me (I)

I believe

 

VERSE 2

The only thing that matters now is everything you think of me
In you I find my worth, in you I find my identity, (Ooh oh)

CHORUS

You say I am loved when I can’t feel a thing

You say I am strong when I think I am weak

You say I am held when I am falling short

And when I don’t belong, oh you say I am yours

And I believe (I), oh I believe (I)

What you say of me (I)

Oh I believe

VERSE 3

Taking all I have and now I’m laying it at your feet
You have every failure God, you have every victory (ooh oh)

CHORUS

You say I am loved when I can’t feel a thing

You say I am strong when I think I am weak

You say I am held when I am falling short

When I don’t belong, oh you say I am yours

And I believe (I), oh I believe (I)

What you say of me (I)

I believe

Oh I believe (I), yes I believe (I)

What you say of me (I)

I believe (Oh)

BEATZ

DURATION: 4 MINUTES 30 SECONDS

THE REVIEW

Lyrically, the song comes in three verses. The Chorus was sung three times. The song is meaningful and the lyrics are well written. It talks about believing in/ accepting the name God associates with you or who God says you are rather that what the world says or thinks about you; hence the title of the song “You say”

BREAKDOWN OF THE VERSES

In the verse 1, “I keep fighting voices in my mind that say I’m not enough” Lauren Daigle says she overcomes words of discouragement that come to her mind.

The artiste overcomes false impression that she would never be as good as others or that she would never be able to attain a great feat. In  her struggles to fight discouragement, she implores God to tell her again of the identity he bequeathed to her; that is of who he says she is

“Am I more than just the sum of every high and every low?” Can’t decipher this line for now, if you can, kindly fill in the comment box

In the chorus, “You say I am loved when I can’t feel a thing” the artiste says even though she thinks of herself in a negative way, when she thinks she is not capable or thinks otherwise of herself; that is, when she thinks herself of something different from what God thinks of her,  God reverses it for her and says something good about her. God is always there to assure her of who she truly is and she believes in his words.

For instance, when she thinks she is feeble, God says she is strong, when she is not acting up to expectations or not doing the right thing, God is always there to guide her. God still loves her and assures her that she is his child.

In the verse 2, “The only thing that matters now is everything you think of me” the artiste is finally convinced that what God says or thinks about her matters more than what she or anyone in the world thinks about her. She says with God, she finds her true identity.

In the verse 3, “Taking all I have and now I’m laying it at your feet” the artiste says she surrenders all to God who has the ultimate power to do and undo. He has power over everything; he can make someone that has always been seen as a failure victorious. He conquers impossibilities and makes one triumph.

WHAT DOES THE SONG “YOU SAY” BY LAUREN DAIGLE MEAN

Just like the title of the song “You Say”; it means a spoken word. The song is a basically about God’s spoken words to the artiste or men that that spoken by humans. The song talks about having an assurance in who God says you are. God is the ultimate, his words are final, hence believing in the identity he has given to you matters more than anything. Irrespective of troubles that may come your way, there would always be victory.

MEANING OF WORDS

Measure up- To be good as others,  to meet expectations

Falling short– Not acting up to expectations; Identity– One’s name, what one is associated with

LOCATION

It has both indoor and outdoor scenes.  But a house was used.
SOUND

Very tuneful! But is it just me, could it be my ears alone, the song has the beat of one of Adele’s songs. It sounds exactly like “Someone like you” by Adele. The song is a slow mid tempo.

VIDEO PRODUCTION

Those lights coming in through the window were quite blinding, if you know what I mean. It was quite distracting as well. The video was not too spectacular.

THE REVIEW

I just love this song, so spirit filling. I love the fact that the entire congregation was on fire for God; they were all spirit filled. They were all connected to God. Although, I am still wondering why the whole place was dark, I thought that only happened during drama. Well, better idea, kindly fill in the comment box

Lyrically, the song comes in one verse though it was repeated just once. The part that dominated the song was the pre-chorus where  the artistes sang “Make me a vessel” It was sung 5 times, while the chorus was sung 4 times. It is a well composed song. Well chosen lyrics that are soul lifting. It talks about God bringing out something good in one. It was sung in English

BREAKDOWN OF THE VERSES

In the verse 1, “In the crushing, in the pressing, you are making, New Wine” the artistes say that the tribulation and challenges is just a temporary phase. They know and believe it won’t last forever because God is on their case; he is renewing them and would give them a better life.  More like a reborn. God is preparing them for great things.

The artistes also surrender all to God because they know God will always look after his children. They totally have confidence in his plans for them.

In the pre-chorus, “Make me your vessel, make me an offering” the artistes after surrendering their lives to God implore God to make them that which is suitable for him. They ask God to tell them what he wants them to be or do and they will obey. The artistes also say that they came empty but God has filled them to the brim. They further ask God to make them carry fresh anointing and bring out something good in their body.

“Make me an offering” in the song may mean that God should suggest or counsel them on what he wants them to be because they would like to do God’s will and not their own will. It may also mean that God should make them a generous giver or he should make them give only that which would cost them and not that which would not cost them.

In the chorus, “‘Cause when there is new wine, there is new power” the artistes say that when there is fresh anointing, when there is something good in them, they would be strengthened, renewed and would be able to achieve greater feat for his kingdom. The artistes also say that they are letting go of their old flames for new fire today. In essence, they want new anointing, they want the spirit of God to fall afresh on them.

WHAT DOES THE SONG NEW WINE BY HILLSONG ABOUT?

This is no doubt a gospel song by the popular band- Hillsong. The artistes surrender their all to God and ask him to bring something good out of them. They want God to mold them into what he desires of them. They ask for more strength and anointing to do his work. They ask God to renew them; all they ask in order to achieve greater feat for the kingdom of God.

MEANING OF SOME WORDS

Crushing: Pressed down, ruin, to be subdued, press; Yield: To surrender

New wine: New life, afresh, refill; something good.

SOUND

It is a slow- tempo song. The beat flowed well with the lyrics and they were very expressive as they sang. The various instruments used- violin, piano, guitar, drum (low beat) enhanced the melody of the song.
