06. That Was Then and This Is Now

Broken Temples
by Kevin Max



 

haunted boy run away
through the early morning haze
I was a troubled rebel son
and all my kingdom had come down

but that was then and this is now
and I've grown somehow
I've buried the doubt deep underground
and I'm living now
but that was then and this is now
and I've grown somehow
I've buried the doubt deep underground
and Iím living now

party girl youíre the one
all the boys they come undone
you were just seventeen
so full of misplaced dreams
they couldn't steal your heart of gold
cause God owned you from the start

but that was then and this is now
and You wrap me in Your love
mistakes I've made the lies I told
are forgiven now

but that was then and this is now
and I've grown somehow
I've buried the doubt deep underground
and I'm living now

but that was then and this is now
and You wrap me in Your love
the mistakes I've made the lies I told
are forgiven now

but that was then and this is now
and I've grown somehow
I've buried the doubt deep underground
and I'm living now

and I'm living now
and I'm living now


(Kevin Max, Cory Basil, Stu Garrard)

Behind the Song:
Before I agreed to become the new lead singer of Audio Adrenaline I had recorded a few songs to be a musical companion to my novel Fiefdom of Angels. One of these songs didn't fit that structure and I kept it hidden on my computer for quite some time. In the early stages of joining Audio Adrenaline, I stayed at Michael Tait's house in Brentwood, as I had sold my home in Nashville and had bought a new home in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Moving back to Nashville was an easy enough process for me as I had lived there for over 2 decades prior. Before finding a home in Franklin for my growing family, I stayed with Michael. He was on the road all of the time with Newsboys, so his house on the hill in Brentwood was constantly empty. During those first few weeks of house hunting, dieting and exercising, I wrote songs in the basement of his home. Armed only with my trusty synth I began to flesh out the song 'That was Then'Ö from the earlier demo. I invited my good friend and artist buddy Cory Basil to come by one afternoon to listen to the song. He added some ideas and with that I took the finished product to Stu G (formerly of Delirious) to finish the track. Stu brought his British sensibilities to my obviously dated-80's-cinematic-guilty-pleasure song. When Josh Silverberg and I began to perfect it again, as an 11th hour addition to this album, I envisioned the tune being something on a soundtrack like the film Drive. -- Kevin Max
