about

I once heard it said that "Christianity is not a country club for the qualified, it is a feast for failures" and that is the spirit I intended to share through this project. These songs reveal the processes of different individuals in the New Testament, all invited to feast at the table of the King.

about

Carly Escoto Los Angeles, California

My name is Carly and I sing the songs planted in my heart about hope, and the tension between the already and the not yet. "Light The Dark" is an album full of pages from my journal. Its an album about the beautiful and painful process of restoration, and I hope you find yourself listening, singing, with hearts full of the good stuff. ... more

Track Name: Be Still
I’ve heard a bit about you
But I still don’t know what’s true
Do you make the rain
Can you, calm the storms
Oh what, oh what am I to you?

If you are who you
say you are I’ll come runnin
If you show me you’re real
If you are who you say you are
I’ll come runnin
But for now I’ll be still

They say you’re powerful
And they’ve seen miracles
And then they tell me, you know my name
Oh what, oh what am I to you?

Cause sometimes the waves are so wild
Sometimes the storm is inside
What if I were caught in the tide?
Would you come and make it quiet?

If you are who you
say you are I’ll come runnin
If you show me you’re real
If you are who you say you are
I’ll come runnin
If you are who you
say you are I’ll come runnin
If you show me you’re real
If you are who you say you are
I’ll come running, Oh oh!

But If I can’t see you
Lord I just don’t know
If this heart can trust that you would make it whole
And I’ve got questions
I’m not sure you see
But God if you are there, help me believe.. in... you....

I’ve heard a bit about you
But I still don’t know what’s true
I wanna believe that, you can save me
But Jesus what am i to you?
Track Name: Zacchaeus
You were just passing through my home town
I’d only heard of You

I climbed the highest tree that I could find
Just to see You
But I was hiding

I hope that you don’t know much about me
I’m no good
Don’t trust me

I just came to get a glimpse of You
Then I’ll leave You,
I swear

Then from the crowd
You called my name (hey-ey)
You must be making some mistake
but then You said

“Come down from where you’re hiding
Cause I know everything
Let all your walls come crumbling
I choose you, come with me”


I used to feel like a waste of space
If I’m being honest

I’ve been wrong, I know that I’ve messed up
And I expected to be punished

But from the crowd You called my name
I thought You had made a mistake
But then You said

“Come down from where you’re hiding
Cause I know everything
Let all your walls come crumbling
I choose you, come with me
Forget about your past, now
& Leave everything behind
Cause I’ve got plans for you
And I choose you so come with me”

I’m not gonna waste any time
Won’t look back for nothing
You see, I’ve waited all my life for
a hope and
A meaning

From the crowd You called my name
And said that it was no mistake
Track Name: You're Mine
Take all your pictures
and find within the grain,
where I have signed my name
Look in the mirror
The curves upon your face
Are not there by mistake

And I know that you don’t think its true
That I see so much beauty in you
But I’ll fight for you darling, believe
That there’s no one who loves you like me

You’re mine
You’re my masterpiece
You’re mine
You’re a part of me
You’re mine
I made your heart, its my fine art

I know you
And all your scars, your broken heart
What you feel,
I feel it too, and I ache with you

This world is twisted,
And its beat you down
Its turned us around
But I’ve defeated
All your fears, and I’m waiting here

And I’ll fight for you darling, believe
That there’s no one who loves you like me

You’re mine
You’re my masterpiece
You’re mine
You’re a part of me
You’re mine
I made your heart, its my fine art

Love, there’s nothing I would not do
To be close to you
To be by your side
I gave my life

You’re mine
You’re my masterpiece
You’re mine
You’re a part of me
You’re mine
I made your heart, its my fine art
Track Name: The Rain
Its all gotten
A bit hazy
I can’t remember when the rain started
But its been coming down for years

I keep thinking maybe
It will let up
But after so long I’ve given up the gun
It keeps comin..

I can’t do
This alone
I‘ve tried everything I know
I can’t stop the rain
I can’t stop the rain

Its aright if you
Go on without me
My inside’s aren’t right
See I’ve been bleeding
It’s been this way 12 whole years

Just let me reach for
A miracle, they say
he’s got healing
Strong enough for me….

But I can’t do this alone
I’ve tried everything I know
I can’t stop the rain
I can’t stop the rain
I can’t stop the pain
I can’t I can’t stop the rain

Touched the edge of the great truth
Just the hem and I’m made new
I’ve waited years for the one who
Who can stop the rain
You have healed my pain

I can’t do this alone
I tried everything I know
I can’t stop the rain
I can’t stop the rain
I can’t stop the rain
Only You can stop....... the rain
Track Name: Feast for Failures
VERSE 1:
There’s a table being set
There’s a host standing by
Looking over every chair
With the kindest eyes

PRE:
Y’can’t earn your place here
Just have to believe
That you are a child
Who’s loved by the king

CHORUS:
Welcome to the feast for failures
Home for hopeless cases
Come and taste the wine for the weary
& The Bread that’ll make your heart new
The table is set for you

VERSE 2:
If you’re hungry …For some mercy
And for goodness that never ends
Come on in here, where You belong
You’ll find peace and his friends
(PRE)
(CHORUS)


BRIDGE:
Pull up a chair
If you feel unworthy
This table is yours, rest assured
All the rejected and humbled on the earth
The King will seat you first

last pre:
No need to be perfect
You can’t earn your seat
Cause You are forgiven
Set free by the King
Track Name: I'm Yours
You who are beauty itself
how'd you find it in me?
Filling my lungs up with breath
So that I can sing

Your story don't make no sense
cause this love is so deep
I break your heart once again
then you reach out for me…for me

I am nothing…
and you're everything
and you gave everything for me

When I try to wrap my mind around you
I am spinning like the earth
Beauty that bursts
at the seams of the Universe

All of your glory came down
inside a baby boy
Only to die on a tree
In my place, and with joy… joy

I am nothing…
and you're everything
and you gave everything for me
Hallelujah I'm yours
Hallelujah

hallelujah ( do it loud and ascending )

So this time its me
calling out your name like a melody
Somehow you know my name, too,
and you call me "Free"

If you make all things new
well please take this broken soul
And hold my heart inside your hands
Until it turns to Gold

chorus
now I am something
cause you're everything
and you gave everything for me

hallelujah I'm yours
