04. This Could Be

Well Meaning Fiction
by Mainstay



 

I'm giving weight to circumstance
You'd swear I'm hopeless
This time just isn't like the last
I said that last time too

This could be, this could be
It’s over, the summer is almost gone
This could be history
It's over, the clouds are breaking now

All that is separating us
years or minutes
But sometimes I can't wait for the end
Perspectives changing again

And all of the looks that you keep on giving me are killing me
And some of the words I say are so naive - forgive me



Behind the Song:
“How many times have I said to myself, "this is the absolute worst time of my life," only to a few weeks later say the exact same thing to myself about a completely unrelated and new issue? If each instance really was the worst time of my life, I have had approximately 100 "worst times" come and go. The reality of every heartbreak, big or small, is that they are all infinitely tiny in comparison with eternity. This Could Be is a jab at myself to realize that in light of a sovereign, eternal God, each bit of drama in my life "could be" and in fact, is over. Not giving circumstances the weight that they sometimes demand is a very, very empowering thing.” - Justin Anderson (Mainstay)
