JOSHUA EHRMANN Jonni writes with an honesty that shakes me up in the best way. Beautiful finger-picking and brilliant lyrics matched with a voice that sounds older than it is makes for some great songs. Favorite track: Hemlock.

Track Name: Song for Holy Saturday
On the day you left the garden
Broken, naked, and ashamed,
He covered your bare skin,
But still your body stayed the same.
You found our Father's not a father
Who would make you pick the switch
And beat you down until you acted good,
Though sometimes I wish that He would

Do you miss God like I do? (3x)
Do you wonder if He ever misses you?

Since we left home, I've been sleeping
With a monster in my bed
It crawls under my covers
And breathes heavy in my ear
And my face begins to change
When it touches you-know-where
My hair stands up, I shiver, and I shriek

I call for mama, and she tells me
That the demon's in my head
God keeps devils locked in hell
And they can't drag me way down there
The pages turning in my Bible
Tell me Jesus is still dead
I don't dare touch for fear I'd find out
that it's true

Do you hide from God like I do? (3x)
Do you wonder if He ever hides from you?

When outside it sounds just like
The Gulf wind howling o'er the dunes
When it's only you and me
And the spirits in my room
When it's Holy Saturday
And Jesus sleeps tight in His tomb
I fear on Easter that I'll find Him cold and blue

But don't you miss God like I do (3x)
Do you ever hope that He still misses you (3x)
