Cool OMG!

I just started playing guitar. I love the BarlowGirl cd! I have already prepaid for the new CD, Another Journal Entry. Have you all gotten on your computer with the Self titled cd? They have the Barlowgirl logo and a website with an extra song on it and a never before seen video. Well, just wanted to post.

Hey! You obviously couldnt recognize a christian band if they came up to you and started preaching the gospel. BarlowGirl is a Christian band made up of 3 christian young ladies.
You led me talks about Jesus and Surrender talks about surrendering your life to him. Clothes talks about how young women think they need to wear immodest clothes to fit in and BG is saying you dont need to wear skimpy clothes to fit in. I just suggest before you post again you check your facts!

Pretty good to me. I'm not really one for Pop but the CD's pretty good for a debut album

You did? Like really read the lyrics? To what songs?

Oh God you have to save me
You're my last and only hope
All my right answers fail me
I can't seem to make it on my own -The chorus of On My Own

I waited for you today
But you didn't show
No no.
I needed you today
So where did you go?
You told me to call
Said you'd be there
And though I haven't seen you
Are you still there?

Chorus
I cried out with no reply
And I can't feel you by my side
So I'll hold tight to what I know
You're here and I'm never alone

And though I cannot see you
And I can't explain why
Such a deep reassurance
You've placed in my life.
We cannot separate
'Cause you're part of me.
And though you're invisible
I'll trust the unseen.

Chorus - Never Alone That whole song is about God, the entire thing. Its about how ever though somtimes you dont feel all the close to God, he is always there, and your Never Alone

I walked with you
Just like we've done for so long
You seemed so near
But even that's become so common

It's not just you, just been together so long
That I thought I knew everything about you
But today I saw; did you open up my eyes?
'Cause I feel like I've just seen you for the first time

Chorus
I didn't see you
But God I want to
You've come alive
and I think I've fallen harder than the first time -First verse/pre-chorus/chorus of Harder Then The First Time

Good morning
The night is over and gone
I thought once
This dark would last for so long

Pre Chorus
Feel the sunlight
On my face
You have brought me
Through this place

Chorus
Jesus, Jesus You found me
Through the long night you led me
You set me free -Verse 1, pre chorus, and chorus of You Led Me

My hands hold safely to my dreams
Clutching tightly not one has fallen.
So many years Iíve shaped each one
Reflecting my heart, showing who I am.
Now youíre asking me to show
What Iím holding Oh so tightly.
Canít open my hand; canít let go
Does it matter?
Should I show you?
Canít you let me go?

Chorus
Surrender, surrender
You whisper gently
You say I will be free
I know but canít you see
My dreams are me, My dreams are me

Say you have a plan for me
And that you want the best for my life.
Told me the world has yet to see
What you can do with one
Thatís committed to your call.
I know of course what I should do
That I canít hold these dreams forever.
But if I give them now to you
Will you take them
Away forever? Or can I dream again?
-Surrender. That entire song is about God aswell, talking about how we all need to surrender our dreams/life to him and live a fully surrendered life to his plan and will

And you said they seem to be "Way to hung up with boys at the mall" ? Did you not see the song Average Girl? They are against dating. They believe that dating is so overrated these days and they are leaving it up to God to bring him their future spouses. That doesnt mean they hide in the closet away from guys, they just go out and groups, and are just friends.

So what I'm not your average girl
I don't meet the standards of this world
Chasing after boys is not my thing
See I'm waiting for a wedding ring


Chorus

No more dating

I'm just waiting

Like sleeping beauty

My prince will come for me
No more dating

I'm just waiting

'Cause God is writing my love story


Boys are bad; that's certainly not true
'Cause God's preparing one for you
If you get tired waiting till he comes
God's arms are the perfect place to run


Chorus

Bridge

Sleep - that's the only thing for me
'Cause when I sleep
God's preparing one for me

Chorus
-Average Girl

Please, before you start critisizing(I cant spell, so shoot me) someone, actually read their lyrics and stuff, dont jsut read two lines and everything. Hung up with boys at the mall? Yeah, right. Read those lyrics then tell me they dont mention God or sound like a christian band

bruceband!!! goodgrief!!

bruceband, I must disagree. I luv BarlowGirl, but that's not the only reason I disagree with u. BG has a stand 4 purity and not dating. boys in the mall? sorry but that doesn't even make sense! lol well, anyway even if I hated the band, I think that as Christians, we should always try to be polite and encouraging, cuz thats what God wants us to do! lol 'Don't be a hater! it's bad for ur health!' lol I like that!! good job Napoleon17!
anyone who hasn't heard BG: I highly recommend them! lol

well, first of all bruceband, you didn't read the lyrics that well.

they are about remaining pure and not dating until God shows them the right man to marry.
Just because a band doesn't mention Jesus like secular bands mention the f word, doesn't make them non-Christian.
Personally, they are wonderful girls, and have really inspired me to remain pure, and stand true in my faith. there are not enough of inspiring girls like them in the world.
