A song for Sunday

Let it all out
get it all out
rip it out remove it
don't be alarmed
when the wound begins to bleed

cause we're so scared to find out
what this life's all about
so scared we're going to lose it
not knowing all along
that's exactly what we need

and today I will trust you with confidence
of a man who's never known defeat
but tomorrow, upon hearing what I did
I will stare at you in disbelief
oh, inconsistent me
crying out for consistency

and you said I know that this will hurt
but if I don't break your heart then things will just get worse
If the burden seems too much to bear
the end will justify the pain it took to get us there

and I'll let it be known
at times I have shown
signs of all my weakness
but somewhere in me
there is strength

and you promise me
that you believe
in time I will defeat this
cause somewhere in me
there is strength

and today I will trust you with the confidence
of a man who's never known defeat
and I'll try my best to just forget
that that man isn't me

reach out to me
make my heart brand new
every beat will be for you
for you

and I know you know
you touched my life
when you touched my heavy heart and made it light

-Relient K, "Let It All Out"

Yesterday I heard this song while driving and it made me think so clearly of a particular blog friend that I had to post it. It is a song by a Christian (crossover) band, but I think the sentiment is applicable to anyone experiencing the universal pain of healing. The courage and fear, the strength and weaknesses, the hope and suffering. I love that the subject of the song is such a difficult and dark process, while the melody is peace and beauty. We all need a little beautiful peace in our darkest moments.
