Somethin' Takes Over
by First Call

Album: The Definitive Collection
by First Call


There's joy in the Lord
That every sinner can afford
Unless you're livin' as a Christian

You don't know the joy you're missing
And you'll wonder
How you could ever be bored

It's true as can be
Because it's happenin' to me
I'm gonna tell my story to you

'Cause I know that when I'm through
You're surely bound to see it
The way that I see

'Cause sometimes when I kneel to pray
And let the spirit have his way

Somethin' takes over
Somethin' takes over my soul
And soon I get to reelin'
'Cause of all the joy I'm feelin'
Till I'm very nearly out of control

Just like the rollin'
Of the waters of the mighty sea
When I'm connected to the spirit
Heavenly Father's sure to hear it
'Cause somethin' takes over me

It's hard to contain
A joy that words just can't explain
Unless they know the reason for it
All your friends will just ignore it
For it seems you're going a little insane

But don't you forget
He isn't finished with you yet
We have His spirit now to teach us
For He said He'd always keep us all
And that's a promise on which you can bet

For He's renewing your mind
And when you praise Him you will find

Somethin' takes over
Somethin' takes over my soul
And soon you get to reelin'
'Cause of all the joy your feelin'
Till you're very nearly out of control

Just like the rollin'
Of the waters of the mightly sea
When you're connected to the spirit
Heavenly father's sure to hear it
'Cause somethin' takes over me

I get to dancin'
When the spirit starts movin' my feet
I can't help singin' when we're swingin'
With the angels to a heavenly beat
(Well, well)

And then the neighbors
Pull theirs shutters down
And start to ring me on the line

I say, "I'll beg your pardon, please
If I'm disturbin' the peace
But then the fault's not really mine"
It's just that

Somethin' takes over
Somethin' takes over my soul
And soon I get to reelin'
'Cause of all the joy I'm feelin'
Till I'm very nearly out of control

Just like the rollin'
Of the waters of the mighty sea
When I'm connected to the spirit
Heavenly Father's sure to hear it
'Cause somethin' takes over me

Well, it was just the other morning
While I was prayin', I was praisin' the Lord
Thankin' Him for everything that He's done
And all that He means to me

I got to thinkin' really deep
And it occurred to me
That all I really wanted was more of Him
Just to be closer, no Sir
I couldn't sit there anymore

You know I had to get up
On the roof of the house
Raisin' my hands and shoutin'
"Lord, take me higher, higher, hgher"

I guess the neighbors
Must have misunderstood my intentions
You could say I got carried away
'Cause they thought I was shoutin' 'Fire'
Like the house was burning down

And I was about to be D.O.A.
(What a laugh)
They called the hook and ladder truck
A policeman and the ambulance too

And everybody's running around on the lawn
But nobody knows what to do
And all this time I'm standin' there
On the roof of the house
With my hands in the air

Havin' a wonderful time with the Lord
(I told you Christians rarely get bored)
But before too long they figured out
There's no spark or flame
To be worried about

And then they all got pretty steamed
And as they're about to do their worst to me
I saw a golden opportunity
And from my high and lofty perch

I preached a sermon like it was church
And when I was finished they forgave me
For the crazy way that I raved
Now I know that all things work for good
'Cause they all ended up gettin' saved

Somethin' takes over
Somethin' takes over my soul
And soon I get to reelin'
'Cause of all the joy I'm feelin'
Till I'm very nearly out of control

Just like the rollin'
Of the waters of the mighty sea
When I'm connected to the spirit
Heavenly Father's sure to hear it
'Cause somethin' takes over me

Somethin' takes over me
