Lifehouse "Hanging by a Moment"

There are so many fantastic Christian bands out these days! I think I lean more towards the alternative Christian, maybe? I certainly love Jeremy Camp & Casting Crowns. BarlowGirl & Superchic[k] are awesome bands as well. I could be more of a Contemporary Christian listener leaning towards the edgier stuff. Now, my oldest daughter loves all the music on Air1: Anberlin, Stellar Kart, and Switchfoot.

Have you head of Lifehouse? If you haven't, take a look into this fresh band! Hanging by a Moment is a song I think we can all relate to. Are you ever hanging, waiting for the Lord to speak to tell you what you should do next? Here are some of the words:

I'm falling even more in love with you
Letting go of all I've held onto
I'm standing here until you make me move
I'm hanging by a moment here with you

I'm living for the only thing I know
I'm running and not quite sure where to go
And I don't know what I'm diving into
Just hanging by a moment here with you

Now, I don't know that this band would be labeled "Christian". I haven't heard many of their songs, but the ones I've heard are fantastic. Their lyrics are strong and meaningful. Several years ago they had a song called You and Me that was featured on Smallville. No, I didn't have that info tucked in my brain, I got it from their Facebook page.

Do you ever wish you were in a band? I don't necessarily mean for real, but that it'd be kind of cool. I always thought I'd love to play the guitar. Then I started listening to Jeremy Camp and I fell in love with the drums. In the "official" Hanging by a Moment video, I love watching the drummer. Let me clarify, I like watching his hands. He looks like he loves playing! Maybe I'll have to buy myself some drums! hahahaha I'm thankful that my 5 yr old wants to learn. I'll live vicariously through him and pick up his sticks while he's at school.

Unfortunately, Universal Studios embeds their videos on YouTube so you can't put them on any other sites. I'm putting up a version of their Hanging by a Moment video, but it's not what I would consider "official". I prefer the newer and completely changed (and financially backed?) video. I'd encourage you to visit YouTube to view Lifehouse's actual video of Hanging by a Moment. Their other video Whatever It Takes is a great song about being committed to making a relationship work and opening yourself up to being loved and known.

No problema! I had no idea who sang "You and Me", but heard snippets of it here & there. So glad to know who sings it now! :)

I love Lighthouse. He was a missionary kid. :) That explains a lot about the lyrics, I think. I pulled out their first CD yesterday and played it for the first time in about two years. :) I think I have all of their CDs. I know I have three of them for sure.
