Chris August, “Pieces”

Chris August, "Pieces"

Contemporary Christian singer/songwriter Chris August has released his new single, Pieces, on Spotify and iTunes, and is now touring in support of the new single with fellow Contemporary Christian singer/songwriter Jonny Diaz.

Pieces is August’s take on the original by Bethel Music song, which appears on the album Have It All. While the Bethel Music original is decidedly more worshipful in its vocal and instrumentation approach, August’s Pieces adds a Contemporary Christian radio sensibility to the track. His instantly recognizable voice wraps around the song, and I’m sure, if done acoustically, would be absolutely gorgeous.

PIECES Lyrics
Chris August

Unreserved, unrestrained
Your love is wild
Your love is wild for me
It isn’t shy, it’s unashamed
Your love is proud
To be seen with me

You don’t give Your heart in pieces
You don’t hide Yourself to tease us

Uncontrolled, uncontained
Your love is a fire
Burning bright for me
It’s not just a spark
It’s not just a flame
Your love is a light
That all the world will see
All the world will see

You don’t give Your heart in pieces
You don’t hide Yourself to tease us

Your love’s not fractured
It’s not a troubled mind
It isn’t anxious
It’s not the restless kind
Your love’s not passive
It’s never disengaged
It’s always present
It hangs on every word we say
Love keeps its promises
It keep its word
It honors what’s sacred
‘Cause its vows are good
Your love’s not broken
It’s not insecure
Your love’s not selfish
Your love is pure

You don’t give Your heart in pieces
You don’t hide Yourself to tease us
