Catch Every Teardrop

Album: God's Great Dance Floor, Step 01 (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • This contemplative ballad was inspired by Psalm 52 and the near fatal car crash in 1995 that almost claimed Martin Smith's life. It was during the weeks of his recovery that Martin decided to become a full-time musician.

    The Delirious? song "August 30," which appeared on their 1997 King of Fools album, was inspired by the same pivotal event.
