Come Wind - Rend Your Heart

[youtube=http://youtu.be/PevunPDh4XE]Genre: Prog Rock, Indie

Taken from their second release Grow My Roots,  this track is 'Rend Your Heart' by the four-piece heavy indie/rock band Come Wind. This loud and powerful track tells a story that echoes the parable of the prodigal son, in which the band creatively use musical composition to enhance the emotions of the narrative told - best demonstrated in the bridge that builds into the climax of the reunion between son and Father.

Lyrics:

We grew together Me and many brothers From the second time that we were born To our Father in heaven Every note that was sung Every breath in our lungs We knew it came from him

Then we found some daughters And they looked better than What the author of our lives had penned He wrote life and life abundant I don’t know why you didn’t want it

[Chorus] I know that you had thought that it was better I’ll never know until I try it The life I came to give you, it was whole I’ll never stop until I know that I filled this hole.

He’s slow to anger And of great kindness A slave can now be called a son In the morning mercy’s new again Never exhausting love

[Chorus]

Your patient mother How you gonna tell her that you’ve grown You can’t hide it from her She wants to be proud oh she wants to be proud She wants to be proud oh she wants to be proud

Your patient Father How you gonna stand before his throne You can’t hide it from him He wants to be proud oh he wants to be proud (X4) He wants to be proud He wants to be proud

[Chorus]

Return and when I see you I’ll come running Oh I don’t think I’m anything but a slave Father will take you in You’re still his son The cup he gives you to drink will always fill you up
