Music Can Make a Difference

I’m maybe being a bad husband tonight. Though I don’t think HopeToBeMommy notices, or cares. I’m pulling a college Ben…I’m staying up late. I don’t really do this anymore, not since I married 5 1/2 years ago. But I did so to listen to some music. You see, music heals…it really does.

I watched my favorite all-time band on Colbert, Radiohead. They played four songs and were fantastic. Then I put on my DVRs of Austin City Limits of The National, Band of Horses, The Black Keys, etc.

I won’t go get my iPod. Because then I’ll be tempted to put on Mumford and Sons. You know, the band that EVERYONE from age 6-100 loves. Their last song, “After The Storm” is an emotional one for me. Probably is for anyone who actually listens to the words and has experienced something as painful as IF in their lives. Go buy the song if you need a song that speaks to you, lyrics below:

After The Storm Lyrics

And after the storm,
I run and run as the rains come
And I look up, I look up,
on my knees and out of luck,
I look up.

Night has always pushed up day
You must know life to see decay
But I won’t rot, I won’t rot
Not this mind and not this heart,
I won’t rot.

And I took you by the hand
And we stood tall,
And remembered our own land,
What we lived for.

And there will come a time, you’ll see, with no more tears.
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.

And now I cling to what I knew
I saw exactly what was true
But oh no more.
That’s why I hold,
That’s why I hold with all I have.
That’s why I hold.

I will die alone and be left there.
Well I guess I’ll just go home,
Oh God knows where.
Because death is just so full and mine so small.
Well I’m scared of what’s behind and what’s before.

And there will come a time, you’ll see, with no more tears.
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.
