01. Unexpected

Unexpected EP
by Eric Champion



 

I didn't expect the sorrow
I didn't expect the pain
I didn't expect the heartache
I didn't expect the shame

It takes guts and it takes medicine
To make it through the day
When things just don't go my way
It draws blood and apologies again
If I had the chance to run away
To get out of this dance or to stay...

I'd do it all again.
(You know I'd do it all again)
Cause I still ache to hold your hand
(You know I'd do it all again)

I didn't expect the changes
I didn't expect this place
I didn't expect forgiveness
And I sure didn't expect your grace

It takes love made in a larger size
To make it through the day
You put up with my displays
It hurts pride and it takes compromise
If you had the chance to run away
To get out of this dance or to stay...

I hope you'd do it all again
(You know I'd do it all again)
Cause I still wanna be your man
(You know I'd do it all again)
You put a kink in all my plans
(You know I'd do it all again)
It's so much better than I planned
(You know I'd do it all again)

2005 Luminous Art Media / Eric Champion

Behind the Song:
"Our reality often lives in tension with our expectations. We expect certain things from our relationships, our careers, our daily schedules. However, it is the unexpected that will have the bigger impact on our lives. This particular song reflects my struggle with growing into my role as a husband and father. I thought you just 'grew up' and it was as easy as having birthdays. I didn't realize it would be such a difficult process of change. The biggest surprise was the continual payoff from going into those painful places and doing the work that needed to be done to become the man I wanted to be. Unfortunately, I learn best from my mistakes, thus the line directed toward my wife, 'I hope you'd do it all again'. Her patience with me is astounding and binds me to her with a love that is unexpected..." - Eric Champion
