Great New Song From "Idol" Chris Sligh

Ok, do you remember this guy from American Idol?
He has the best song out right now. It's called "Empty Me"
I wanted to share it with ya'll. The chorus so resonates with my soul. It made me cry.

I've had just enough of the spotlight when it burns bright
To see how it gets in the blood.
And I've tasted my share of the sweet life and the wild ride
And found a little is not quite enough.
I know how I can stray
And how fast my heart could change.

Empty me of the selfishness inside
Every vain ambition and the poison of my pride
And any foolish thing my heart holds to
Lord empty me of me so I can be filled with you.

I've seen just enough of the quick buys of the best lies
To know how prodigals can be drawn away.
I know how I can stray
And how fast my heart could change.

Empty me of the selfishness inside
Every vain ambition and the poison of my pride
And any foolish thing my heart holds to
Lord empty me of me so I can be filled with you.

Cause everything is a lesser thing
Compared to you, compared to you.
Cause everything is a lesser thing
Compared to you so why surrender all?

Empty me of the selfishness inside
Every vain ambition and the poison of my pride
Empty me of the selfishness inside
Every vain ambition and the poison of my pride
And any foolish thing my heart holds to
Lord empty me of me so I can be
Lord empty me of me so I can be filled with you.
Oh, filled with you.
Empty me.

  1. Wow...that gave me the goose bumps! I'm going to add that to my itunes library right now...thanks for sharing Shannon. It's a very personal and deep song that is a wonderful reflection of the sinful nature and the human heart's cry to break from our chains and be free in Christ. Love it.

  2. you do not have to let the player start automatically. In stead of autostart="true" put autostart="FALSE". Try it.
