"Shake" by Mercy Me

Dave's Take

Just before Christmas I got to spend a weekend in Tampa, Florida with some other radio people and MercyMe.  The band was promoting their new song, “Shake” and gave each of us radio people the opportunity to dance with the guys in the band for a custom song video.  Can I be honest with you for a moment? The idea of dancing in front of other people pretty much makes my skin crawl.  I have no rhythm and I look downright silly.  And, most of the time I have no interest in looking silly in front of others.

But, here’s the thing.  The song is about the power of God to transform lives.  I mean total transformation…new heart kind of transformation.  Is there really anything more joyful than that?  It’s the kind of joy that should make you want to dance.  Even if you look silly. And so I did.

"Shake" Lyrics

I just can't believe
Where my life was at
All that I know is that my heart was broken
And I don't ever wanna go back

Ain't no explanation
How I saw the light
He found me and set me free
And it brought me back to life

Blame it on the transformation
Changed down to the core
His love is real
And I can't sit still
Cuz my name's not shamed no more

Great God Almighty, gonna change this
Great God Almighty, He gonna change me

You gotta shake, shake, shake
Like you're changed, changed, changed
Brand new looks so good on you
So shake like you've been changed

Come on and shake, shake
Shake like you've been changed
Shake, shake, shake like you changed
Maybe He came to you
When everything seemed fine
Or maybe your world was upside down and hit you right between the eyes
No matter when it happened
At 7 or 95
Move your feet ‘cause you are free
And you've never been more alive

You gotta shake, shake, shake
Like you're changed, changed changed
Brand new looks so good on you
So shake like you've been changed

Come on and shake, shake, shake
Shake like you changed, changed, changed
Shake, shake, shake like you changed
Brand new looks so good on you
So shake like you've been changed
Come on and shake, shake, shake
Shake like you changed, changed, changed
Shake, shake, shake like you changed
Shake, Shake

Great God Almighty gonna change me
Great God Almighty, He gone and changed me
No matter when it happened
At 7 or 95
Move your feet, ‘cause you are free
And you've never been more alive
