“Turnstile” by Danyew

I love this song. I think every one can identify with it on some level. We can see it as  God expressing His eternal love for us, His children (esp. the chorus)! Or, as a devoted love from one person to another. No matter the context, these words are beautifully precious.

If you haven’t downloaded it, you can see Danyew’s studio performance of the song here:

“Turnstile” Studio Performance

I’m a turnstile
Counting up the days
Since I have seen your face
It’s been a long while
Though many things have changed
Our love remains the same
Our love remains the same

I want you like the first time I saw you
Want you like a shooting star
Love, you are my home
Oh, I want you for my own
I love you like there is no tomorrow
Love you through the joy or sorrow
Love, you are my home
Oh, I want you for my own

I want you more than you will ever know

Nobody
No not a single soul
Could ever take away
My love for you
Yeah, every single day
I promise to be true
My love I give to you

I want you like the first time I saw you
Want you like a shooting star
Love, you are my home
Oh, I want you for my own
I love you like there is no tomorrow
Love you through the joy or sorrow
Love, you are my home
Oh, I want you for my own

I want you more than you will ever know

I want you like the first time I saw you
Want you like a  shooting star
Oh! Love, you are my home
Oh, I want you for my own
I love you like there is no tomorrow
Love you through the joy or sorrow
Love, you are my home
Oh, I want you for my own

I want you more than you will ever know

Streetlight – Danyew

Interesting fact about Phil Danyew:  All of the instruments you hear in his songs are played by him! Impressive, right?

I saw that a lot of the hits for my post of the “Beautiful King” lyrics were by people searching for “Streetlight” lyrics, so I figured I might as well add those lyrics as well. It was a little harder to transcribe because it’s a bit faster than “Beautiful King,” but here it is! 🙂  This a great song about the awesome guide we have in our Father God. He’s our streetlight! Let’s follow Him wherever He wants to take us in our lives. I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t want to follow any one else.

I saw a Love, deeper than the Pacific,
I saw a Love, burning brighter than a million stars,
In a single line,
You make alive,
Anyone who feels that You bring to mind,
Everything that’s beautiful in this life,
I find who I wanna be inside Your eyes,
Inside Your mind,
Yea, I need Your life
‘Cause I’m living just to love You, and…

I saw, You glowing like a streetlight and,
I fell, in love just tryin’ to understand
Why You loved me first.
Your heart, is all I ever want to know,
And I’ll go, anywhere You want to go,
You’re shining bright.
You’re my streetlight.

Am I out of control?
Or do I have a vision to change the world?
Am I looking for means to pave the way,
For brighter days?
‘Cause your love has changed the way it used to be.
‘Cause it used to be
I couldn’t see 5 feet in front of me,
Fighting to breathe on the heavy seas of incompletes
And tired dreams,
‘Til You finally took me over, and…

I saw, You glowing like a streetlight and,
I fell, in love just tryin’ to understand
Why You loved me first.
Your heart, is all I ever want to know
And I’ll go, anywhere You want to go,
You’re shining bright.
You’re my streetlight.

I can see the stars,
The clouds are gone
The weather’s at our fingertips.
I’ll be waiting for,
Waiting for You.
Take me where You want
I’ll go!

I saw, You glowing like a streetlight and,
I fell, in love just tryin’ to understand
Why you loved me first.
Your heart is all I ever want to know,
And I’ll go, anywhere you want to go,
You’re shining bright.
You’re my streetlight.

Beautiful King – Danyew

God is so good. He is taking me to higher heights and new revelations in Him. I have realized that I have been focusing on the wrong things and for too long. I recently became really frustrated and didn’t understand why He wouldn’t give me something I wanted, but when I finally stopped focusing on what I wanted, how much I wanted it, and my frustration for not having it, I realized that it isn’t right for me right now. I’m not ready for this gift. Right now, He wants my sole focus to be on Him and that is exactly what I plan to do. Dive deeper into my Beautiful King, the Ultimate Peace for my soul.

I recently downloaded this song from itickets.com, where it will be available until Sunday, Mar 22nd.  It’s called “Beautiful King” by Phil Danyew, an up-and-coming Christian artist. I love everything about this song, from the guitar intro, to his lovely voice, to the melody, and most especially, THE LYRICS! They are so beautiful. I have been playing the song on repeat for like… the past 2 hours. haha. And it’s still going! 🙂 The lyrics aren’t posted online, so I typed them up. Here they are! Be Blessed!

Beautiful King,
has anybody seen
Your glory unfold?
You walk up to me
with sparks in Your eyes,
You brighten my world

And You’ll always be my only One.
You’re the only God I’ll ever love
because…

Every word that you say
wields the beauty of angels.
Every smile is arrayed
with a joy like wedding bells.
It’s my heart you hold.
Of your mystery I sing.
I will stand and behold
my Beautiful King

Love of my soul,
with power untold,
who is like you?
Lamb that was slain,
my God, You reign
in victory and truth.

And I’ll follow You all my days.
And I’ll give to You every single thing.
I hand everything over…

Every word that You say
wields the beauty of angels.
Every smile is arrayed
with a joy like wedding bells.
It’s my heart You hold.
Of your mystery i sing.
I will stand and behold
my Beautiful King.

And time flies by.
We’re not standing alone.
Every word that You say,
Father, let it be known.
I fall so fast
without You by my side.
Let Your beauty be seen

Let Your glory unfold
Let Your glory unfold
Let Your glory unfold
Let Your glory unfold

Every word that You say
wields the beauty of angels.
‘Cause every smile is arrayed
with a joy like wedding bells.
It’s my heart You hold.
Of Your mystery i sing.
I will stand and behold
my Beautiful King!!!

‘Cause every word that you say
wields the beauty of angels.
‘Cause every smile is arrayed
with a joy like wedding bells.
It’s my heart You hold.
Of your mystery i sing.
I will stand and behold
my Beautiful King

I really love this song because it where I currently am spiritually. Given the personal revelation I described above, it is a wonderful example to me of what I need to be doing right now. Praising Him (“Beautiful King!!! Love of my soul!”) in the midst of dedicating ALL of my focus to Him (“You’ll always be my only One”… “And I’ll follow you all my days… give to you every single thing”). I have to resist the distractions and the temptations to look elsewhere (“And time flies by. We’re not standing alone… I fall so fast without You by my side”) and seek only His guidance and His deeper revelations (“Every word that You say, Father, let it be known… Let your glory unfold”). What a beautiful prayer!! I love it so much and feel so blessed by it! Thank you, Jesus! He truly meets us right where we are and EXACTLY when we need Him.

Brother Danyew has an EP album out, which features his other song, “Streetlight.”

And here is Brother Danyew being silly. He’s so adorable!

Further proof of his adorable-ness:

He seems like such a humble, passionate artist. I’m excited to hear what new songs he releases in the future and I hope he releases them soon! He’s such a blessing!
