Song of the Week: God Only Knows by For King and Country

God only knows talks about going through situations so painful, you probably cannot share with another, about smiling to pretend you are fine even when you are not.

Randomly listening to music with good titles on Youtube pays off, yeah it does.

At the office, I frequently listen to music on Youtube from artistes like Anthem Lights, One Voice Children Choir, Elevation Worship, Hillsong Worship and several others; thankfully, Youtube brings up artists in similar genres as suggestions and that is how I stumbled on musicians like Lauren Daigle, Thomas Rhett, For King and Country, etc.

God Only Knows

At first, I was captivated by the video of “God Only Knows”, but the wordings and the way it was sung got to me and I couldn’t resist, I had to download it and several others of their songs.

God only knows talks about going through situations so painful, you probably cannot share with another, about smiling to pretend you are fine even when you are not. It especially addresses suicide and then it explains that through all these, there is a kind of love that Knows (God’s love). It also captures the need to love, listen and be there for each other.

Suggested – Song of the Week: Miye Ruwe by Frank Edwards 

My favourite part in the song is the Post chorus ( there is a way it gets to me, a good way of course).

I’m sure you’ll love the song. Find below the lyrics plus links to watch and download.

God Only Knows Lyrics:

[Verse 1]
Wide awake while the world is sound asleepin’
Too afraid of what might show up while you’re dreamin’
Nobody, nobody, nobody sees you
Nobody, nobody would believe you
Every day you try to pick up all the pieces
All the memories, they somehow never leave you
Nobody, nobody, nobody sees you
Nobody, nobody would believe you

[Chorus]
God only knows what you’ve been through
God only knows what they say about you
God only knows how it’s killing you
But there’s a kind of love that God only knows
God only knows what you’ve been through
God only knows what they say about you
But God only knows the real you
There’s a kind of love that God only knows

Suggested: Ebube by 2Trumpetz

[Post-Chorus]
There’s a kind of love that
There’s a kind of love

[Verse 2]
You keep a cover over every single secret
So afraid if someone saw them, they would leave
Somebody, somebody, somebody sees you
Somebody, somebody will never leave you

[Chorus]
God only knows what you’ve been through
God only knows what they say about you
God only knows how it’s killing you
But there’s a kind of love that God only knows
God only knows what you’ve been through
God only knows what they say about you
But God only knows the real you
There’s a kind of love that God only knows

[Post-Chorus]
There’s a kind of love that
There’s a kind of love
There’s a kind of love that
There’s a kind of love

[Bridge]
For the lonely, for the ashamed
The misunderstood, and the ones to blame
What if we could start over?
We could start over, we could start over
Oh, for the lonely, for the ashamed
The misunderstood, and the ones to blame
What if we could start over?
We could start over, we could start over
‘Cause there’s a kind of love that God only knows

[Chorus]
God only knows what you’ve been through
God only knows what they say about you
God only knows the real you
But there’s a kind of love that God only knows
God only knows what you’ve been through
God only knows what they say about you
But God only knows the real you
There’s a kind of love that God only knows

Suggested: Alade Ogo by 2trumpetz

[Post-Chorus]
There’s a kind of love that
There’s a kind of love
There’s a kind of love that
There’s a kind of love

[Outro]
God only knows where to find you
God only knows how to break through
God only knows the real you
There’s a kind of love that God only knows
