This song won the Grammy for song of the year this year.
I love the line in the beginning that says, "Now in the morning I sleep alone, sweep the streets I used to own."
What a visual that is.
It's a visual we can all grab hold of in these uncertain times. Most of us know people who have lost their possessions, lifestyle and livelihood in this crumbling economy.
Every time I hear this song, I think of this verse:
"You expected much, but see, it turned out to be little. What you brought home, I blew away. Why?" declares the LORD Almighty. "Because of my house, which remains a ruin, while each of you is busy with his own house." (Haggai 1:9)
There is nothing new under the sun, indeed.
