WHO IS AGAINST ME? // Song Story by Grace Baylis
I’ve always imagined this song to be a song I’d have listened to on repeat, strutting my way into school. In fact, I always imagine my friend Sarah leading a praise aerobics class to it!
It’s a simple truth, and in this song I think it’s a battlecry:
Since You are for me,
Who is against me?
On a similar vein to the last album’s Life In Colour, it’s about the goodness that comes from a life with Jesus. It’s happy-go-lucky, but badass, all at the same time.
In terms of songwriting/composition, it came together quite quickly. TP, the musical genius that he is, had already written the music for it. He had the track - the drums, the riffs, the sections for verse and chorus, but no lyrics, concept or melody.
Us ladies (Pippa, Charlotte and I) hardly ever get to sing together as a 3. It’s a sadness in my heart … so when we had the opportunity to work with Tom and sing on a track together as ladies, it was always going to be a winner! It’s a bold, feel-good declaration of who we are, and who He is.
“She is closed in strength and dignity and laughs without fear of the future.”
The trials, the fears, the struggles, they come. Of course they do! But this is a perfect song that sums up the joyful truth that surpasses all of that - He is for us, He is with us, and loves every Little Mix-inspired worship song that we sing about it!
