keep me ever close to you

Dolly Parton night is my most favorite performance night of season 7. Surprisingly. :)) I don't know much about Dolly Parton and why she's famous, except for the fact that she's short and she looks uhh. scary. hahaha

I don't know if I have posted this already, but this is my most favorite Jason Castro song. The beat makes you want to flail your arms around and dance to it. I was clueless about this song. But hey, the lyrics are nice and inspiring. It makes you smile.



The whole and studio version can be found here.

Travelin' Through
by Dolly Parton

Well I can't tell you where I'm going, I'm not sure of where I've been
But I know I must keep travelin' till my road comes to an end
I'm out here on my journey, trying to make the most of it
I'm a puzzle, I must figure out where all my pieces fit

Like a poor wayfaring stranger that they speak about in song
I'm just a weary pilgrim trying to find what feels like home
Where that is no one can tell me, am I doomed to ever roam
I'm just travelin', travelin', travelin', I'm just travelin' on

Questions I have many, answers but a few
But we're here to learn, the spirit burns, to know the greater truth
We've all been crucified and they nailed Jesus to the tree
And when I'm born again, you're gonna see a change in me

God made me for a reason and nothing is in vain
Redemption comes in many shapes with many kinds of pain
Oh sweet Jesus if you're listening, keep me ever close to you
As I'm stumblin', tumblin', wonderin', as I'm travelin' thru


I'm just travelin', travelin', travelin', I'm just travelin' thru
I'm just travelin', travelin', travelin', I'm just travelin' thru

Oh sometimes the road is rugged, and it's hard to travel on
But holdin' to each other, we don't have to walk alone
When everything is broken, we can mend it if we try
We can make a world of difference, if we want to we can fly


Goodbye little children, goodnight you handsome men
Farewell to all you ladies and to all who knew me when
And I hope I'll see you down the road, you meant more than I knew
As I was travelin', travelin', travelin', travelin', travelin' thru

I'm just travelin', travelin', travelin', I'm just travelin'
Drifting like a floating boat and roaming like the wind
Oh give me some direction lord, let me lean on you
As I'm travelin', travelin', travelin', thru

I'm just travelin', travelin', travelin', I'm just travelin' thru
I'm just travelin', travelin', travelin', I'm just travelin' thru

Like the poor wayfaring stranger that they speak about in song
I'm just a weary pilgrim trying to find my own way home
Oh sweet Jesus if you're out there, keep me ever close to you
As I'm travelin', travelin', travelin', as I'm travelin' thru


I disagree with Simon on his thoughts about Jason's song. It was a good rendition and I downloaded the performance song as soon as I listened to it. No biases, promise. :) I loved all performances of the Dolly Parton songs, but Jason's and Cookie's performances won the night.

I'm planning to do a recap of the top 12. I just need a whole day to do this because I want funky photos and long descriptions. I want their live CD nao. I'm not over the AI addiction!
