Sloppy Wet Kiss
I’ve had a great deal of discussion this week about the David*Crowder Band’s new single, “How He Loves” written by John Mark McMillian. I fell in love with this song on Eddie Kirkland’s “Orthodoxy,” but there is one glaring difference in the two. David re-writes the song to say “when Heaven meets Earth like an unforeseen kiss,” while Eddie sings the original lyric, “when Heaven meets Earth like a sloppy wet kiss.” Granted singing this in church might stir some heads. I love the imagery of the latter; it intensifies the revelation of God’s lavished, uninhibited love, that we, His children, are blessed with. Reading I John 3:1, it’s a reminder that we have been given a love and acceptance far beyond what we could hope for. But what is your thought? What does that mean to you? Do you prefer Kirkland’s version, or Crowder’s?…. from a lyrical stand point.
