I fell in love with this song the first time I heard it. There’s something about the depth of flow that catches me. When he’s singing about running down corridors, automatic doors, got to get to you I can feel the fear, the panic.
The funny thing is I thought this was about a relationship, wife, girlfriend, whatever. Tears making tracks, tears scared of the facts. Seeing Christmas lights in your eyes brought visions of past memories to mind. I couldn’t have been more wrong.
I listened to this song hundreds of times without getting it. Then I noticed he said something about a plastic box which made no sense at all. So I started listening closer. It finally dawned on me this song was not about a love interest but a child. A new norn child. Probably a preemie. I should have caught this earlier when he says ‘first night of your life’ but hey I was too busy enjoying it to notice!
The plastic box was the incurbator. The Christmas lights were surrounding the incubator or in the room. And a song that I was touched by became something more.
I love when the song transitions, I see it in your eyes, you’ll be alright. Just a great moment of hope and love.
This song and this band are incredible. I truly recommend you check them both out! Now!
