From bad to good...

I had a crappy day on Monday. I had so much work to do and not enough hours. I'd got out of sync with myself and so have been working like a trooper in order to keep up. Today I have so far, three pieces of french left, some art sewing machining, and a dance essay. Let's hope things stay this way. I'm gonna miss dance on saturday to give me a better chance. I'm just sucha procrastinator.

In fact things got so bad on Tuesday that I was thinking of quitting a subject in order to have more free peroiods at school to keep up.

Tuesday night was great though and completely turned things around. Rob, John, Tanya and I went to Bristol to see Delirious? at the Colston Hall. This was only the second concert I'd been to, but it made up for it in sheer coolness.

We had an adventure driving around Bristol as Rob has never driven around it before. We got there, drove past the venue and a car park, got lost looking for one, drove around a few back street, missed another car park and finally ended up in a car park right behind our venue. Full credit to Rob for his city driving! It was amazing.

I love the Colston Hall. It's a triumph of Modern design. Pillars out front all most classical, then inside, bright and airy. A narrow tall space, the balcony comes down instep around the space in a long narrow horseshoe. The front seats had been removed to provide an area for people to stand and 'pogo' or 'mosh' a bit, then the seats behind in a normal theatre fashion.

We arrived 5 mins before the show started. Rushing in , we sat behind the lighting desk for the first half of the show. The supports Taylor Sorenson, and Rock and Roll Worship Circus were quite good too!

Then after a short break with some cute babies on the big screens for an aids charity, Rob and I moved to the standing zone for some bouncing and swaying and singing and laughing and gazing in wonderment. Well I did anyway ;-)

The set was amazing...I felt so uplifted. Here are some of my favourite songs...


Mystery of mysteries
That you could love someone like me
In your hands eternity
And yet you have the time for me
A love so undeserved
You held nothing in reserve
Heaven played its symphony
I took your hand, and you rescued me

Grace like a river
Is flowing down
Is flowing down
Grace like a river
It’s flowing down to me

Staring at my history
Was all alone but never free
The sands of time have let me see
Your faithful shadow next to me
A love so unreserved
I did nothing to deserve
Love so free but what’s the cost
To carry this old rugged cross

I love you, I thank you
I’m nothing, without your
Grace like a river


Here I am humbled by your majesty
Covered by your grace so free
Here I am, knowing I’m a sinful man
Covered by the blood of the Lamb

Now I’ve found the greatest love of all is mine
Since you laid down your life
The greatest sacrifice

Majesty, Majesty
Your grace has found me just as I am
Empty handed, but alive in your hands
Majesty, Majesty
Forever I am changed by your love
In the presence of your Majesty

Here I am humbled by the love that you give
Forgiven so that I can forgive
Here I stand, knowing that I’m your desire
Sanctified by glory and fire

Now I’ve found the greatest love of all is mine
Since you laid down your life
The greatest sacrifice


Everything must change
There’s a mirror showing me the ugly truth
These bones they ache with holy fire
But I’ve got nothing to give, just a life to live
If your world is without colour
I will carry you, if you carry me

Every little thing’s gonna be alright
Every little thing’s gonna be alright [x2]

There’s no-one else to blame
I live my life between the fire and the flame
I’ve built my house where the ocean meets the land
It’s time to live again, pull my dreams out of the sand
Let your world be full of colour
I will carry you, if you carry me

When it’s all falling down on you
You’re crying out but you’re breaking in two
When it’s all crashing down on you
When there’s nothing you can do
There is someone who can carry you


Inside outside, under my skin
Never ending love I don’t know where it begins?
I don’t know where it ends, I don’t know how high
I don’t know how deep, I don’t know how wide
Outside inside around the world
Never ending love envelops me like a cloud
I feel you in front, I feel you behind
I feel you up above, And I feel you at the side

And you, you’re all over me, you’re all over me
Your banner is over me, I give it all ‘cos

You still captivate me, fascinate me
You still captivate me, saturate me

Inside outside, pulling me in
No matter where I run I know you’ll never give in
I see you in the storm, I see you in a kiss
I’ve been around the world and never found a love like this

You’re all over me, you’re all over me
You’re everything I want to be
I’m all over you, you’re everything I want to see
You’re all over me

You, still captivate me, fascinate me
You still captivate me, saturate me
You still captivate me, liberate me
You still captivate me
