Jesus take the wheel

Just woke up, and I can't sleep anymore so I decided to post some thoughts that lingered me for sometime now.

I really don't like Carrie Underwood, I wanted Bo Bice to win last years' season of American Idol. Quite odd, she has a song in her debut album that keeps playin' in my head and completely stuck when I got to watch the music video. In denial that I actually like the song she sang and as a matter of fact I enjoy listen to it. It moves me in a weird way up to the point that I get emotional listening to it. Wow, can't believe I'm pouring my heart out like this so cheesy... I don't like being cheesy! Well, while I'm at it might as well get rid of it now, and vent it out. The song I'm referring to is entitled "Jesus Take the Wheel". I hope that someday and sooner, I'll conjure up the courage to say "Jesus take the wheel of my life". Complete surrender, the big flaw that I am, all of my fears, hang-ups, issues, past, present, future and my numb heart. If you haven't seen the video or heard of the song, I've posted the lyrics of the song and a Youtube video below.

Jesus, Take the Wheel
performed by: Carrie Underwood

She was drivin' last friday on her way to cincinnati
On a snow white Christmas Eve
Goin' home to see her Momma and her Daddy
With her baby in a back seat
Fifty miles to go and she was runnin' low
On faith and gasoline
It'd been a long hard year

She had a lot on her mind and she didn't pay attention
She was goin' way too fast
Before she knew it she was spinnin on thin black sheet of glass
She saw both their lives flash before her eyes
She didn't even have time to cry
She was so scared, she threw her hands up in the air

Jesus take the wheel
Take it from my hands
'Cause I can't do this on my own
I'm letting go
Give me one more chance
Save me from this road I'm on
Jesus take the wheel

It was still getting colder when she made it to the shoulder and that car came to a stop
She cried when she saw that baby in the back seat sleepin' like a rock
For the first time in a long time she bowed her head to pray
She said I'm sorry for the way
I've been livin' my life
I know I've got to change
So from now on tonight
(Repeat chorus)
