Britney

I heard this song on the radio and was so confused by the first verse I almost changed the station. Then on the second verse it hit me (italicized below), and I broke into tears. I am so convicted of my own hate and pride when I heap judgment on celebrities when they fall and their lives break to pieces.



Bebo Norman, you are an awesome man of God. I appreciate your heart and courage to proclaim God's love to all people.

Britney I'm sorry for the lies we told
we took you into our arms and then left you cold
Britney I'm sorry for this cruel cruel world
we sell the beauty but destroy the girl
Britney I'm sorry for your broken heart
we stood aside and watched you fall apart
I'm sorry we told you fame would fill you up
and money moves the man so drink the cup

I know love goes around the world we know
and you never see it coming back
you never see it coming back
i know love goes around the world we know
and you never see it coming back
but i can see it coming back for you
yes coming back for you

Britney im sorry for the stones we throw
we tear you down just so we can watch the show
Britney im sorry for the words we say
we point the finger as you fall from grace


Britney i do believe that love has come
here for the broken
here for the ones like us


I know love goes around the world we know
and you never see it coming back
you never see it coming back
I can see it coming back for you

Seriously dude I don't know where you find all these things. You must read or be on some strange mailing list. I know you said you heard it on the radio but seriously are you that in touch with you feeling. JK again.

It's actually a problem sometimes, I can't get my mind to turn off!
