SIA LYRICS

“Eye Of The Needle”

 Take me down
 I’m feeling now
 And if I move on
 I admit you’re gone
 And I ain’t ready
 And I’ll hold steady
 Yeah I’ll hold you in my arms
 In my arms, in my arms

 Whoa

[Chorus:]
 And you’re locked inside my heart
 And your melody’s an art
 And I won’t let the terror in, I’m stealing time
 Through the eye of the needle

 Step and repeat
 Whoa
 Tears fall to the beat
 Smile through the pain
 Feel the acid rain
 And I ain’t ready
 But I’ll hold steady
 Yeah I’ll hold you in my arms
 In my arms, in my arms

 Whoa

[Chorus:]
 And you’re locked inside my heart
 Whoa
 And your melody’s an art
 Whoa
 And I won’t let the terror in, I’m stealing time
 Through the eye of the needle

[Bridge:]
 My bags heavy
 Been filled by me
 They weigh me down
 Carry them ’round
 It’s all mine all mine
 I am blinded by the eye of the needle

[Chorus:]
 And you’re locked inside my heart
 Whoa
 And your melody’s an art
 Whoa
 And I won’t let the terror in, I’m stealing time
 Through the eye of the needle
 Eye of the needle
 And you’re locked inside my heart
 Whoa
 And your melody’s an art
 Whoa
 And I won’t let the terror in, I’m stealing time
 Through the eye of the needle

 Oh oh
 Whoa
 Oh oh
 Whoa yeah

Bible verse reference:

 

The Rich Young Man
…Then Jesus said to His disciples, “Truly I tell you, it is difficult for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” When the disciples heard this they were greatly astonished and asked, “Who then can be saved?”…
Matthew 19:24 Commentaries:
19:23-30 Though Christ spoke so strongly, few that have riches do not trust in them. How few that are poor are not tempted to envy! But men’s earnestness in this matter is like their toiling to build a high wall to shut themselves and their children out of heaven. It should be satisfaction to those who are in a low condition, that they are not exposed to the temptations of a high and prosperous condition. If they live more hardly in this world than the rich, yet, if they get more easily to a better world, they have no reason to complain. Christ’s words show that it is hard for a rich man to be a good Christian, and to be saved. The way to heaven is a narrow way to all, and the gate that leads into it, a strait gate; particularly so to rich people. More duties are expected from them than from others, and more sins easily beset them. It is hard not to be charmed with a smiling world. Rich people have a great account to make up for their opportunities above others. It is utterly impossible for a man that sets his heart upon his riches, to get to heaven. Christ used an expression, denoting a difficulty altogether unconquerable by the power of man. Nothing less than the almighty grace of God will enable a rich man to get over this difficulty. Who then can be saved? If riches hinder rich people, are not pride and sinful lusts found in those not rich, and as dangerous to them? Who can be saved? say the disciples. None, saith Christ, by any created power. The beginning, progress, and perfecting the work of salvation, depend wholly on the almighty power of God, to which all things are possible. Not that rich people can be saved in their worldliness, but that they should be saved from it. Peter said, We have forsaken all. Alas! it was but a poor all, only a few boats and nets; yet observe how Peter speaks, as if it had been some mighty thing. We are too apt to make the most of our services and sufferings, our expenses and losses, for Christ. However, Christ does not upbraid them; though it was but little that they had forsaken, yet it was their all, and as dear to them as if it had been more. Christ took it kindly that they left it to follow him; he accepts according to what a man hath. Our Lord’s promise to the apostles is, that when the Son of man shall sit on the throne of his glory, he will make all things new, and they shall sit with him in judgement on those who will be judged according to their doctrine. This sets forth the honour, dignity, and authority of their office and ministry. Our Lord added, that every one who had forsaken possessions or comforts, for his sake and the gospel, would be recompensed at last. May God give us faith to rest our hope on this his promise; then we shall be ready for every service or sacrifice. Our Saviour, in the last verse, does away a mistake of some. The heavenly inheritance is not given as earthly ones are, but according to God’s pleasure. Let us not trust in promising appearances or outward profession. Others may, for aught we know, become eminent in faith and holiness.
