Building 429 feat Blanca Callahan, “Press On”

Okay, it’s official, I totally love Building 429.

I thought We Won’t be Shaken is one of the best CCM singles I’ve ever heard, bar none, and was SOOOO disappointed it didn’t top the main chart. (Thanks a lot, Matthew West.) Now the follow-up single from the 2014 Grammy Award-nominated Contemporary Christian Album of the Year is Press On, featuring Group 1 Crew’s Blanca Callahan.

Absolutely brilliant! Press On – which, unfortunately, seems to have been given a Wrecking Ball retitle by some creative individuals looking perhaps to capitalize on a certain teen superstar’s similarly titled number one single – is fantastic in its own merits. Easily singable, great lyrics, and of course, a dynamite performance by the uber-talented, ever-reliable Blanca Callahan – how does this woman NOT have her own record deal?! – make Press On a terrific radio single and easily Building 429′s most accessible radio single to date. Surefire Top 10, and I wouldn’t go out of the way to say it could outperform its predecessor and go all the way to number one.

PRESS ON (WRECKING BALL) Lyrics
Building 429

Sometimes this world starts breaking me down
I get so lost I think I’ll never be found
And there are moments of fear and doubt
Even the best fall to the ground

I am a mess, I am a wrecking ball
I must confess that I still don’t get it all
Lord I believe that all Your words are true
Doesn’t matter where I’m going if I’m going with You
I press on, I press on, I press on
When I still don’t get it

I see the world through my jaded eyes
I get frustrated when there is no Why
I put my focus on worthless things
Even the strong fall to their knees
God only knows what we all need

I am a mess, I am a wrecking ball

I must confess that I still don’t get it all
Lord I believe that all your words are true
Doesn’t matter where I’m going if I’m going with You
I press on, I press on, I press on
When I still don’t get it

Life goes on, life goes on
But Your love will prove
All I need, all I need
I will find in You
Life goes on, life goes on
But Your love will prove
All I need, all I need
I will find in You
I press on

I am a mess, I am a wrecking ball
I must confess that I still don’t get it all
Lord I believe that all Your words are true
Doesn’t matter where I’m going if I’m going with You
I press on, I press on
I press on, I press on
When I still don’t get it

Life goes on, life goes on
But Your love will prove
All I need, all I need
I will find in You
Life goes on, life goes on
But Your love will prove
All I need, all I need
I press on
