Mercyme, “Shake”

MercyMe - Shake

Contemporary Christian pop/rock band MercyMe has released Shake, a digital single that may be the band’s most accessible uptempo single since So Long Self. Written by MercyMe stalwarts Bart Millard, Mike Scheuchzer, Nathan Cochran, Robby Shaffer, Barry Graul, and Solomon Olds with Contemporary Christian songwriters du jour David Garcia and Ben Glover – who recently won another songwriter of the year award at ASCAP – Shake is a rollicking celebration of joy and faith in a God Who has changed us inside and out. I absolutely love it. Bart Millard sounds like he’s truly enjoying himself, and the video – OH THE VIDEO! – complements the song totally. I love it love it love it. Great job, MercyMe!

 

SHAKE Lyrics
MercyMe

I just can’t believe
Where my life was at
All that I know is that my heart was broken
And I don’t ever wanna go back

Ain’t no explanation
How I saw the light
He found me and set me free
And it brought me back to life

Blame it on the transformation
Changed down to the core
His love is real
And I can’t sit still
Cuz my name’s not shamed no more

Great God Almighty, gonna change this
Great God Almighty, He gonna change me

You gotta shake, shake, shake
Like you’re changed, changed, changed
Brand new looks so good on you
So shake like you’ve been changed

Come on and shake, shake
Shake like you’ve been changed
Shake, shake, shake like you changed
Maybe He came to you
When everything seemed fine
Or maybe your world was upside down and hit you right between the eyes
No matter when it happened
At 7 or 95
Move your feet ‘cause you are free
And you’ve never been more alive

You gotta shake, shake, shake
Like you’re changed, changed changed
Brand new looks so good on you
So shake like you’ve been changed

Come on and shake, shake, shake
Shake like you changed, changed, changed
Shake, shake, shake like you changed
Brand new looks so good on you
So shake like you’ve been changed
Come on and shake, shake, shake
Shake like you changed, changed, changed
Shake, shake, shake like you changed
Shake, Shake

Great God Almighty gonna change me
Great God Almighty, He gone and changed me
No matter when it happened
At 7 or 95
Move your feet, ‘cause you are free
And you’ve never been more alive

Repeat chorus
