I'm currently listening to a cd called IF I LEFT THE ZOO by Jars Of Clay. Actually the album was my first exposure to new 'christian rock/aternative music' whatever you want to call it. I bought that one years ago and since then I couldn't get enough.

My favorite track from the cd is No One Loves Me Like You - a bluegrass inspired-ballad with pump organ, mandolin and strong sweet vocals. The lyrics talks about how love can be the most wonderful thing, and how it can be hurt. This song is well done and musically, its superb!

(lyrics here)

Collapsing was much softer
Still falling always hurt
Only after sensing your love
For always ever burned

You justified my folly
My affluent disguise
Removed revealing nothing
Yet nothing unforgiven lies
Unforgiven lies

No one loves me like you
No one loves me the way you do
No one loves me like you
No one loves me the way, the way that you do

To touch the rose unfearful
Is to meet the thorn
And pierce the heart's emotion
And feel the emptiness no more
Emptiness no more

Took some time to realize I've fallen

Anyway, the whole album is great. To anyone that loves music and God, I truly recommend this one. =0
