On Purpose

It told a story. A story of a boy and girl gone sour.
A story of drowning sorrow and chasing blues. 

I still hear it — I don’t want to hear it but it comes uninvited. 

Songs matter. 
Lyrics matter.
Music matters.

The words live on after the song is played. 
So be careful what the lyrics say. 

Do the lyrics give you hope? 
Do they encourage you to live healthily, and wholesomely? 
Do they let you know there is GOD; that He cares and He will help you? 

Then why listen  — on purpose?
