There's one song that's just been hitting me lately. Love it. Love the sound and absolutely love the words.
If I was listening to this CD a year ago, I would have thought about the precarious dance of a marriage growing older. But now, I am literally watching my sweet daughter fight for her independence, I see the clashes that are going to inevitably put obstacles in our path.
Oh, how'd we get so disconnected
My heart is shutting down
I just can't let it
I can't embed it, but go watch the video.
Listen. Read the lyrics, and then if it reminds you of a marriage, as it did me, go read my review of The Stuff that Never Happened (which earned the best of the best 5 Star Reads label).
When I read this line in The Stuff that Never Happened, I couldn't help but hear this song as a companion piece. One of the characters said to another, "Because you need to grab on to whatever you can in life -- whatever makes you happy. There's so little of that in life. That's grace, you know. A concept that, by the way, I didn't know I believed in."
The song continues
Oh I'll run forward and pray you fall back
Grace will come and clear your path
I'll run forward and you come back
