C.S. Lewis Song

I love this song by Brooke Fraser. The first verse is a paraphrase of a C.S. Lewis quote from Mere Christianity: 

"If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world." 

This is the whole premise of the song, that we are not made for this world. So we will hope and wait for the day of the Lord. In the meantime, I'm clinging to his promise that

"Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint."  
Isaiah 40:31 

(Andrew took these pretty pictures on the video in California)

"C.S. Lewis Song"

If I find in myself desires nothing in this world can satisfy,
I can only conclude that I was not made for here.
If the flesh that I fight is at best only light and momentary,
then of course I'll feel nude when to where I'm destined I'm compared.

Speak to me in the light of the dawn,
Mercy comes with the morning.
I will sigh and with all creation groan as I wait for hope to come for me.

Am I lost or just less found? On the straight or on the roundabout of the wrong way?
Is this a soul that stirs in me, is it breaking free, wanting to come alive?

Cause my comfort would prefer for me to be numb,
And avoid the impending birth of who I was born to become.

For we, we are not long here,
Our time is but a breath, so we better breathe it.
And I, I was made to live, I was made to love, I was made to know you.
Hope is coming for me,
Hope, He's coming.
