07. The Best Of Times

Of Truth And Reconciliation
by Staple



 

To fall from the ladder that you’ve climbed towards all of your dreams -
For true love, for victory, for the right to succeed.
Why do we always miss our last chance to try,
but never the heartache of saying “goodbye”?

Heavy hands and sad, red eyes
waiving at their dreams that just passed by

We were so fond. But those moments are gone.
Beloved times that our hearts find –
sometimes we must say “goodbye”

Now the pieces fall and the chips are laid
and I’m not the man that I would have made or could have been.
But this is where I find what trust is for:
crying tears of faith that God’s got something more.

This is life, and who’s to say the man I see
won’t pale in the shadow of the man I’ll be
with my heavy hands and sad, red eyes waiving goodbye?

We were so fond, but we have to move on

Lyrics by Darin Keim, Music by Staple

Behind the Song:
"This song is dedicated to all who have loved or held things dearly only to experience the pain of having them ripped away.

Why do we always miss our last chance to try, but never the heartache of saying goodbye?

It’s an attempt to encourage people to hope and trust that there’s something better ahead. Sometimes the very experiences that have been taken away from us are necessary to make us better people overall.

Who’s to say that the man I see won’t pale in the shadow of the man I’ll be?

There is a God of love. And if we genuinely trust that, then we can believe He’s got something better in store for us." - Darin Keim (Staple)
