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
