Epiphany in Song

Hope can come out of the blue when you least expect it, even when it is general directionless hope.

I’ve been struggling lately just trying to keep going. I feel like I’m wading through waist deep mud dragging chains around my legs and arms that are attached to cinder blocks. Sometimes it’s hard to even breathe. There doesn’t seem to be a light at the end of the tunnel because the tunnel doesn’t end.

In this case Hope didn’t come out of the blue but out of the Blues Traveler.

I was listening to this song and singing along when I suddenly burst into tears. I realized that I was telling myself something. I really hope I listen….

“Just Wait”

If ever you are feeling like your tired
and all your uphill struggles leave you headed downhill
if you realize your wildest dreams can hurt you
and your appetite for pain has drinken its fill
i ask of you a very simple question
did you think for one minute that you are alone?
and is your suffering a privelege you share only?
or did you think that everybody else feels completely at home?

[Chorus:]
Just Wait……….Just Wait………..Just Wait…….And It Will Come

If you think I’ve given up on you,your crazy
and if you think i dont love you well then your just wrong
in time you just might take to feeling better
Time is the beauty of the road being long
i know that now you feel no consolation
but maybe if i told you and informed you out loud
i say this without fear of hesitation
i can honestly tell you that you make me proud

[Chorus]

If anything i might’ve just said has helped you
if anything i might’ve said helped you just carry on
your rise uphill may no longer seem a struggle
and your appetite for pain may all but be gone
i hope for you and cannot stop at hoping
until that smile has once again returned to your face
theres no such thing as a failure who keeps trying
coasting to the bottom is the only disgrace

[Chorus]
