29. The Only Way Out sung by Cliff Richard

“The Only Way Out” sung by Cliff Richard
(click here to listen)

Came a time in my life I had to be free
From all of the lies that used to be me
And the only way out
is the only way in and it’s you
I’ve been waisting my time but not anymore
I’ve been through the maze
and it lead to your door
And the only way out
is the only way in and it’s you
I spent a lot of time at the crossroads
Getting that lonely feeling inside
Suddenly you stopped the rain,
you changed the view
Now every way’s leading to you
Let’s get this thing going,
let’s move it along
Let me do all the things
I’ve been missing so long
’cause the only way out
is the only way in and it’s you, oh
I spent a lot of time at the crossroads
Getting that lonely feeling inside
Suddenly you made the rescue,
you pulled me through
Now let me do something for you
Let’s get this thing going, let’s move it along
Let’s do all the things I’ve been missing so long
And the only way out is the only way in and it’s you
Yeah the only way out is the only way in and it’s you
Yeah the only way out is the only way in and it’s you
Only way out is the only way in
The only way out is the only way in
Is the only way in
The only way out is the only way in

COMMENTS ON PREVIOUS SELECTION – “All You Need is Love”

While the overall sentiment of this song fits well into Jesus’ message, there is more than meets the eye (or the ear?). Obviously, love is a good summary of the gospel, but there is theological detail as well (“No one you can save that can’t be saved”), hope (“Nothing you can do that can’t be done”), psychotherapeutic encouragement (“but you can learn how to be you in time”) and reassurance (“There’s nowhere you can be that isn’t where you’re meant to be; it’s easy”), i.e. in the simple lyrics of this song there is are a few sermon in the making.
