We dont talk alot about Christian music here. Who do you guys listen to. There is a new song out by Marc Shultz called "Letters From War", and my dad just got back from Iraq, he was there for 1 1/2 yrs. So i can relate to this song a little. And the weird thing is that its a Christian Pop song, yet, it doesnt base around christianity. its cool.

She runs to the mailbox

On that bright summers day

Found a letter from her son

In a war far away

He spoke of the weather

And good friends that he'd made

Said I'd been thinking 'bout dad

And the life that he had

Thats why I'm here today

And that the end he said

You are what I'm fighting for

It was the first of the letters from war

She started writing

(Chorus)

Your good and your brave

What a father that you'll be someday

Bring him home

Bring him safe

She wrote everynight as she prayed

Late in December

A day she'll not forget

Oh her tears stained the paper

With every word that she read

It said I was up on a hill

I was out there alone

When the shots all rang out

And bombs were exploding

And thats when I saw him

He came back to me

And though he was captured

A man set me free

And that man was your son

He asked me to write to you

I told him i would oh I swore

It was the last of the letters from war

And she prayed he was living

Kept on believing and wrote every night just to say

(Chorus)

Then two years later

Autumn leaves all around

A car pulled in the driveway

And she fell to the ground

And out stepped a captain

Where her boy used to stand

Said mom I'm following orders

From all of your letters

And I've come home again

He ran into hold her

And dropped all his bags on the floor

Holding all of her letters from war

Bring him home

Bring him home

Bring him home

This song really really makes me teary eyed. :puppyeyes:

My friend recently introduced me to some good christian music because although I am a christian I hated listening to it because I thought it was all way over produced and cheesy, but he gave me this band called Daily Planet. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in christian rock. They only released one CD and because of a medical issue they have broken up for a while but may return. Once again I highly recommend Daily Planet to anyone.
