Francesca Battistelli, “Strangely Dim”

Francesca Battistelli, “Strangely Dim”

Contemporary Christian star Francesca Battistelli, who has scored number hits with “I’m Letting Go,” “Free To Be Me” and “This Is The Stuff,” has released “Strangely Dim” to iTunes. Strangely Dim will be on the repackaged version of Battistelli’s previous release, Hundred More Years. Personally, I think Strangely Dim may be Battistelli’s best carrier single to date, and should fittingly usher her back to number one, where she rightfully belongs. While Strangely Dim is still pleasantly within Battistelli’s pop-rock roots, it displays a maturity and spiritual depth that should appeal to a new audience while not alienating her already faithful fans (include me in that latter list).

Battistelli never fails to surprise. She never disappoints. Strangely Dim is another great chapter in her ever evolving, ever inspiring discography.

STRANGELY DIM Lyrics
Francesca Battistelli

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

I’ve had all these plans piled up sky high
A thousand dreams on hold and I don’t know why
I got a front row seat to the longest wait
And I just can’t see past the things I pray
Today

But when I fix my eyes on all that You are
Then every doubt I feel deep in my heart
Grows strangely dim
All my worries fade and fall to the ground
‘Cuz when I seek Your face and don’t look around
Any place I’m in grows strangely dim

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Sometimes where I stand
On this narrow road is in a raging storm
Or a valley low
But oh

But when I fix my eyes on all that You are
Then every doubt I feel deep in my heart
Grows strangely dim
All my worries fade and fall to the ground
‘Cuz when I seek Your face and don’t look around
Any place I’m in grows strangely dim dim

I don’t know, I don’t know
What tomorrow may hold
But I know, but I know
That You’re holding it all
So no matter what may come

I’m gonna fix my eyes on all that You are
‘Til every doubt I feel deep in my heart
Grows strangely dim
Let all my worries fade and fall to the ground
I’m gonna seek Your face and not look around
‘Til the place I’m in grows strangely dim

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
