Crystal Bowersox

Not sure if you watch American Idol or not. We do. Crystal has been my favorite girl for a while but this past Tuesday night's performance was just awesome.

Here are the lyrics to the song she sang. The theme for the night was "inspirational songs."

PEOPLE GET READY

People get ready, there's a train a comin'
You don't need no baggage, you just get on board
All you need is faith to hear the diesels hummin'
Don't need no ticket, you just thank the Lord

People get ready for the train to Jordan
It's picking up passengers from coast to coast
Faith is the key, open the doors and board 'em
There's hope for all among those loved the most.

There ain't no room for the hopeless sinner
Who would hurt all mankind just to save his own
Have pity on those whose chances grow thinner
For there's no hiding place against the Kingdom's throne

So people get ready, there's a train a comin'
You don't need no baggage, you just get on board
All you need is faith to hear the diesels hummin'
Don't need no ticket, you just thank the Lord

At the end of the performance this is our conversation:

Chris: What? Is she crying? Uggg. Why?
Me: (with tears in my eyes) Did you hear it? Did you listen to the words?
Chris: You're crying?
Me: It is a good song!
Chris: Well, yeah, it was really good.

For some reason that just made me laugh.

Here it is...

You are so adorable! That is a GREAT song and worthy of tears.

I love the "there's no hiding place against the Kingdom's throne!"
