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
