ONLY LOVE WINS
My friend, Layton Howerton, always captures me with some of his great original work.
He sang one of his new songs when he was at our church over the weekend of January 13 -
Layton's ability as a story teller is so impressive. One of his favorite phrases is "Long Story Short." So he is my "LSS" buddy.
I am so glad that I can count Layton as a friend.
Layton, thanks for a great song.
When the song comes out on his new CD, make sure and get it!
On life and love, it's complicated
Whether You're single or married, you' get frustrated
and how it makes you feel
yeah and how it makes life reel
You put your right foot forward and drag your left
With all the heart/faith/life that you've got left
Even when you don't believe
You keep your eyes forward and don't look down
When your world's spinning round and breathe
If the first shall be last and the last first
In the end only love wins
On life and religion....(laugh)
It's mostly opinion and blended superstition
I know the truth, You can't outrun what You've done
Yeah I know the truth and the need for redemption
When your faith in folks fails you, when you forget to forgive
Remember everybody dies, few people live

Every line in this song is beautifully crafted.
But that last one is powerful...
"When your faith in folks fails you, when you forget to forgive
Remember everybody dies, few people live."
