The Story Behind Set Aside

 

Set Aside is the first song on the Set Aside: The EP project.  I actually wrote this song back in 2003.  I was feeling sad and upset because I did not have a boyfriend.  I just could not understand why nothing ever worked out with any of the guys who passed through my life.  I said to myself, "I feel like God has set me high upon a shelf where no man can get to me. So, I guess I'm just set aside." That is where the song, Set Aside came from.

Lyrics

Set Aside-Song Lyrics

 

It's been such a lonely place in my life

I've had to be on my own

I've had to give up so many of my friends

That I would talk to on the phone

 

Because I'm

Set aside

Set aside by Jesus Christ

I don't know why

But I'm keeping my mind

Set aside

Set aside by Jesus Christ

I don't know why

But I'm keeping my mind

Stayed on you

 

I've met so many guys time after time

Why can't I have one boyfriend in my life

But they don't qualify

I can't be satisfied

With a man who does not know Christ

 

Because I'm

Set aside

Set aside by Jesus Christ

I don't know why

But I'm keeping my mind

Set aside

Set aside by Jesus Christ

I don't know why

But I'm keeping my mind

 

Lord you said 

That if I keep my mind stayed on you

That you would keep my mind in perfect peace

So I'll jsut stay right here and wait for you to move

And I'll remain at ease

 

Because I'm

Set aside

Set aside by Jesus Christ

I don't know why

But I'm keeping my mind

Set aside

Set aside by Jesus Christ

I don't know why

But I'm keeping my mind

Stayed on you

Story

The Story Behind Hey! I'm Set Aside

 

Hey! I'm Set Aside is the second song from the SET ASIDE: THE EP project. I wrote this song because I am always asked by men and women, "Why don't you have a man in your life?"  Most people do not understand why I'm waiting on the Lord to give me the right person.  They think I should be putting myself out there so I can meet the man of my dreams. But I don't want to do that; I do not want to meet any men who are not living for God. 

Lyrics

 Hey! I'm Set Aside-Song Lyrics

 

So you wanna be my boyfriend

Well, I'm gon' tell you again

That I don't date men

Who are living in sin

Cuz I'm set aside

By Jesus Christ

Hey.........Hey

 

So you wanna know

What I'm waiting fo'

Waitin' on the Lord

And that ain't no joke

Cuz I'm set aside

By Jesus Christ

Hey..........Hey

 

So just go away

You need to get saved

You're just a fake

And not my soulmate

Cuz I'm set aside

By Jesus Christ

Hey..........Hey

 

Set aside

By Jesus Christ

I'm keeping my mind

Stayed on You

Set aside by Jesus Christ

Hey.........Hey

 

I'm set aside

By Jesus Christ

I don't know why

But I've made up my mind

To be set aside

By Jesus Christ

Hey

Story

The Story Behind Set Aside (She Knows)

 

Set Aside (She Knows) is the fourth song from the Set Aside: The EP project.  I wrote this song in story form about a very beautiful woman, who is always being approached by lots of different men wanting to take her out on dates. She does not want to date any of them because she is waiting on the Lord to bring her a holy man of God. 

Even though she is waiting on the Lord, she is not sitting at home crying and eating ice cream.  Instead, she is attending events like dinner parties, and she remains social.  She is hopeful that she will meet her mate, perhaps at one of the functions she attends.  But in the meantime, she's going to continue to be happy and encouraged.

Lyrics

Set Aside (She Knows)-Song Lyrics

 

She knows that she is set aside

She really doesn't understand why

She hasn't had a date since 2005

But she's still waiting for the right guy

 

She prepares for the dinner party

With a frown on her face

She is feeling oh so very lonely

Because she doesn't have a date

But she's still going, out to have a good time

Tonight she could meet her mate

 

She knows that she is set aside

She really doesn't understand why

She hasn't had a date since 2005

But she's still waiting for the right guy

 

She's a woman with very stunning beauty

She can have any man she wants

Hundreds of guys are all lined up to date her

Every place she has gone

But she can't go out, with just anybody

He has to be a holy man of God

 

She knows that she is set aside

She really doesn't understand why

She hasn't had a date since 2005

But she's still waiting for the right guy

 

She is tired but encouraged

She desires a happy marriage

She is waiting, instead of dating

She's holding on, she's being strong, she knows that it won't be long

 

She knows that she is set aside

She really doesn't understand why

She hasn't had a date since 2005

But she's still waiting for the right guy

The Story Behind Set Aside (To Be By Your Side)

 

Set Aside (To Be By Your Side) is the last song on the Set Aside: The EP project.  In this song, I wrote the fairytale of my dreams.  I pictured how it would feel to have the love of my life come, and finally show himself to me. Basically, I wanted a happy ending to Set Aside: The EP.  After all of the drama that happened to Joshland Shervette, the Lord sends her the man of her dreams!!!!! Yay!!!!!

Lyrics

Set Aside (To Be By Your Side)-Song Lyrics

 

Set aside, set aside to be by your side

Set aside, set aside to be by your side

 

I've met so many guys time after time

Why can't I have one boyfriend in my life

But they don't they don't qualify

I can't be satisfied, with a man who does not know Christ

But then I met you, my soulmate for life

I knew the first time, I looked into your eyes

That you were the guy, to love me til the end of time

Until the day that I die

 

Set aside, set aside to be your side

Set aside, set aside to be your side

 

Hey girl, the first time I looked in your eyes

I knew you were set aside for me

And I know you've been waiting for such a long long time.....               you know, um on Jesus Christ 

You know, but I'm lettin' you know that I'm here, girl

Now I'm here to make you all mine

Because you were set aside by Jesus Christ

And now you know why....so that I can look in your eyes, and love you all the time

And that's real.....I love you, and I will always be there for you

No matter what, through thick and thin, on me you can always depend

Because, you know, you're for me and I'm for you, and that's the way God made it 

So, uh, let's just walk into the next.....let's walk into the next level, you know, hand in hand with each other

And, you know, we can make it, with Jesus Christ everything is possible, we can make it, we can do this together

Aight?  Let's do this.

 

I know that I was created just for you

And me for you

Love of my life

So be my wife

Are you for real

I am for real

Oooohhhh, then yes I will

Good, (sigh) I'm so glad you said yes

So, I was figurin' we could go to Vegas

And then.... we could......go on our honeymoon to the Carribean

You know, and kick back, and just enjoy life together, you know

And um....we could just go on from there, in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ

You feel me?  Yeah

The Story Behind Set Aside (The Remix)

 

Set Aside (The Remix) is the third song on the Set Aside: The EP project.  I wrote this song because I thought the Lord brought the right man to me.  I truly thought he was a man of God, but I was wrong.  It was very disappointing for me to go through that.  So, I had to go back to square one, which was being alone-----again.  But I knew God was still good and I had already won this battle. I wanted to encourage all of the ladies to be strong in the Lord and continue to be set aside until He sends them the right man.

Lyrics

Set Aside: (The Remix)-Song Lyrics

 

Hey Lord, there is this guy that I really like

And I can see that he's the one for me

But some how I found out that I was wrong

That I was so wrong

But I've waited so long

To experience, a love this strong

Now this love has gone, this love has gone, now this love has gone

And that's why I'm singing this song

 

Set aside, by Jesus Christ

I don't know why

But I'm keepin' my mind stayed on you

Set aside by Jesus Christ

I don't know why

But I'm keepin' my mind stayed on you

 

Hey Lord, there was this guy

And I thought he was, the man of my dreams

And all the things, that he said to me, really really seemed.....true

But one day I, got a clue

That all he wanted to do, was do the do

Now I'm back to square one, which ain't no fun

But in the end, I know that I've already won

 

Set aside by Jesus Christ

I don't know why

But I'm keepin' my mind stayed on you

Set aside by Jesus Christ

I don't know why

But I'm keepin' my mind stayed on you

Set aside by Jesus Christ

I don't know why

But I'm keepin' my mind stayed on you

Set aside by Jesus Christ

I don't know why

But I'm keepin' my mind stayed on you

 

I'm set aside by Jesus Christ

I've made it up in my mind

Not to waste a bit of time

On a man who is not fine

I'm at the point in my life

Where losers just don't satisfy, me

Cuz I am a dime

And I know I'm set aside

 

All my ladies, if you're set aside

Let me hear ya, sing after me

Say uh-oh, say uh-oh, say uh-oh

Oh yeah
