Song of the Day: David Meece - When I Was Seventeen

By in Articles | No Comments

David Meece is a classic singer/songwriter hands down. Known primarily for his piano skills & his many Christian contemporary radio hits, he was also a subtle rocker. I think I remember seeing him on Trinity Broadcast Network’s Fire By Night hosted by Blaine Bartel back in the day.  Today’s SOTD is a bittersweet story of his life growing up & how Jesus was there all along. I think we all can understand that still small voice of Jesus calling for us while we were yet sinners.

My daddy left home when I was a kid
Said he had to move on
He took the bottle as his only friend
I didn’t know why, I didn’t know why
Mama tried to do the best that she could
But she just didn’t understand
All the confusion I was feeling inside
I didn’t know why, I didn’t know why
Feeling so alone
How I wish back then I’d known
When I was seventeen
Na na, na na na na
You were callin’
Na na, na na na na
While I was fallin’
Na na, na na na na
When I was seventeen, seventeen
From study hall to the senior prom
I felt like no one at all
And just a shadow in a crowded room
I didn’t know why, I didn’t know why
Thought I was to blame
While Your love screamed out my name
Sure, I heard You died for me
I heard about the Cross
But oh, the pain was burning deep
It took so long to hear Your voice
I found a photo of my mom and dad
A few tears later I could see
How much You loved that lonely boy I was
