For King and Country, “Middle of Your Heart”

Contemporary Christian duo For King and Country have released Middle of Your Heart as the third single off their debut release, the Proof of Your Love. Of all three singles, I like Middle of Your Heart the most. I like the ebullient nature of the song. The instrumentation is topnotch, and, of course, Joel and Luke Smallbone’s first-class vocals are impeccable as always. Given that The Proof of Your Love went Top 10, I’m hoping that Middle of Your Heart will exceed its predecessor, because it’s a great pop-rock song with a great hook, sung by a great band, all about a great God. Works for me.

This is where it begin
This is where all the worry ends
This is where I say
I don’t need to have control

This is where I admit
I don’t know how to handle it
Life in all of it chaos
You are my only hope

And all that I have offer
Is the white flag of surrender

Chorus
So take me to the middle of your heart
Lead me to wherever your love starts
To a new day dawning
To the place you are
And if you wanna take me over the edge
I’ll let you ‘cause you’re love is where I’ll land
Wanna be right where you are
In middle of your heart

This what I believe
That if I give you my everything
I will become who I was really born to be

I’ll stand up to say it
Yeah, your love is something I can put my faith in

Chorus

I carried what I carried
But now I can let it do
Yeah I carried what I carried
But now I can let it go
Now I can let it go

Chorus
