~ Piano ballad with strings and clarinet, somber yet hopeful. ~ 2021-10-25
Even when you do your best to be a good person, sometimes hard, tragic and even unfair things happen. But when you feel alone, it might help to know you're not the only one.
Notes / Back story
Many of us have been through the traumatic experience of a family tearing apart. A while back, a friend shared with me some of the thoughts and feelings she had while going through her experience, and many of those things she wrote became lyrics in this song.
On the pew with their family each Sunday they sat So many children between them So much love all around them
So many years, Heaven was near, Working and loving and growing And knowing their lives were all going the way they should be.
As they sat there, well, someone went somewhere And somehow somebody let something else get in the way And day by day Pretty soon, they Found themselves lonely and longing And all at once everything felt like an empty charade.
Will it ever be the same? Can it ever really change?
Remember when our love was strong? I'm feeling like I don't belong.
The pain is so sharp, I feel like I'm bleeding I can't continue this false life I'm leading
Was it ever real?
Sitting here alone in church Sitting here alone in church
See them sit there, on separate benches Thinking of Jesus while building their fences And trying to move on with their lives Though they were each other's lives
Knowing that Jesus, He came for the lonely But He doesn't sit close with eyes for you only And He doesn't get chills while holding your hand.
Silently watching the wind blow.
