(Lyrics) OK With Out


OK With Feelin’ Out
Words and Music by Charlie Young

March 20, 2021

Starting to feel ok with feeling out
Seeing the what this whole thing’s all about
I’m finding – past the pews, and past the doors –
The people that he really came here for


Starting to feel ok with being down
Making signs for gas amidst the proud
Hearin brothers say, “I’ve a family – mouths to feed”
Teaches me a Jesus-empathy

======
CHORUS
I’ve preached every sermons, know them all
I’ve made all mistakes – church people call them “falls”
I’m finding the truth is something so much more simple
So simple… It’s “Follow Me”

=====

Startin’ to feel a peace with dirt & grime
in darkest chambers people run to hide
Sleepin places you’ll know nothing, no
zip-tied laces, screaming bleedin souls

Tattood satan freak – nah, thats just a girl
Heroin – it’s got her mind in curls
Matt a ninth time came – relapsed again
cries his eyes about tonic and gin

Tom is dancin “Watch me, see me go!”
while Larry lectures on about UFO’s
Gretchyn’s in the corner playing cards
While Jesus sits smiles with them all

========
CHORUS
I’ve preached all the sermons, know them all
I’ve made all mistakes – people call them them “falls”
I’m finding the truth is something so much more simple
simple… it’s “Follow Me”
=======

Feeling quite ok with feeling out
Seeing things much clearer from the ground
Strip away the gloss and sheer veneer
and dial down the volume you will hear

The cry of every broken boy and girl
who failed to step so perfect in the world
But I heard it said that God so loved these ones
That they’re His pride and thats why he did come

Here’s a word to treasure and learn: “empathy”
and its cousin is even better, sweet “sympathy”
Something you can only know if you personally
have walked that walk – And Jesus, I’m walking with you

=======
CHORUS
I’ve preached all the sermons, know them all
I’ve made all mistakes – church people call them them “falls”
I’m finding the truth is something so much more simple
so simple… it’s “Follow Me”
=======
