“Does Anybody Hear Her?” (2006) Casting Crowns

She is running a hundred miles an hour
In the wrong direction
She is trying
But the canyon's ever widening
In the depths of her cold heart
So she sets out on another misadventure just to find
She's another two years older
And she's three more steps behind

Does anybody hear her? Can anybody see?
Or does anybody even know she's going down today
Under the shadow of our steeple
With all the lost and lonely people
Searching for the hope that's tucked away in you and me
Does anybody hear her? Can anybody see?

She is yearning
For shelter and affection
That she never found at home
She is searching
For a hero to ride in
To ride in and save the day
And in walks her prince charming
And he knows just what to say
Momentary lapse of reason
And she gives herself away

If judgment looms under every steeple
If lofty glances from lofty people
Can't see past her scarlet letter
And we never even met her

He is running
A hundred miles an hour in the wrong direction

This song always makes me think of someone who is very important to me. My little sister. I wonder sometimes if she feels like no one hears her. And yet no matter what I do I can’t help her understand I’m listening. I don’t want to fix her problems or take over her life. I just want her to be healthy….safe, happy.

I must say that she’s not a failure. In fact, she’s done some great things, and I am very proud of her in so many ways. She just doesn’t have any family to stand behind her and show her the way. And she’s not quite sure how God fits into everything all the time. But she wants to get better, and make a better life for her little one that will be joining us before too long. And that’s a great many steps in the right direction. Does anybody hear her? I do. And I love her a lot a lot.
