about

Still; in 2005 I dedicated this song I wrote with Whipster to
my father, who only three days after recording the vocals had a motorcycle
accident. My father and I both loved Psalm 139. I added a new verse during "the Broms sessions".

lyrics

Still

If I were to fly on the wings of dawn and
settle down across the sea,
or to ascend to heaven or sprawl out
in Sheol*,
even there you would be.

You're aware of everything I do and
wove me together in my mother's womb

You know me, my thoughts and motives,
darkness and light, they're the same
to You
When I awake I'm still with You

Everything I say is known to You and
all Your knowledge I can't comprehend.
There's no way to fathom Your thoughts 'cause
they outnumber the grains if sand.

Those who despise You,
please have mercy on their souls 'cause
there's too much for them to understand.

You know me, my thoughts and motives,
darkness and light, they're the same
to You
When I awake I'm still with You

(*Sheol = onderwereld)
