You just never know what type of music you’ll find in the spotlight on Musical Mondays here on the Light of Truth blog, huh? **smile**
I guess that’s the idea.
Maybe we’ll even feature Eminem some day…… But today’s not that day.
Instead, I’m posting Country Music. Yep, I’m a closet county music lover…Ok, not lover, but, I don’t mind it. And anything Tim McGraw does is pretty much awesome. This song’s amazing. I hope you take time to see the video I’ve linked.
Now typically you won’t find country music on my I-Pod, but I’ve known about this song for a while and thought it was time to talk it up. It has a great message. I almost posted all the lyrics here, because it was hard to choose which ones affected me the most. But, I chose the following. These lyrics threw me for a loop. It’s hauntingly true.
He said “I was finally the husband,
That most the time I wasn’t.
And I became a friend a friend would like to have.
And all of a sudden going fishing,
Wasn’t such an imposition,
And I went three times that year I lost my Dad.
Well, I finally read the Good Book,
And I took a good long hard look,
At what I’d do if I could do it all again,
I went sky diving, I went rocky mountain climbing,
I went two point seven seconds on a bull named Fumanchu.
And I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter,
And I gave forgiveness I’d been denying.
And he said: “Some day, I hope you get the chance,
“To live like you were dying.”
