05. Smiling Down

For the Love of the Game
by Pillar



 

You make it so hard on yourself
There's nobody else
That could ever understand
The feelings that you felt
I can hear you think about
All the time I was around
If you could only see me now
I'm right here looking down

So next time that you feel like crying
Next time you don't feel like trying
Just remember I'll be right there
Smiling down on you
In the morning you don't feel like rising
Next time you feel like compromising
Just remember I'll be right there
Smiling down on you

I know you won't forget
All the time we got to spend
Just because it’s been awhile
Doesn't mean that it’s the end
So right here and now
I swear to you a vow
That I will always be with you
Whenever you feel down

Nothing will ever come between us
Now I'm holding on to the hand of Jesus

I'll be right there looking down
Even when the sun don't shine
I'll be right there looking down
On those long winter nights
I'll be right there looking down
With a smile on my face
I'll be right there
With my arms open wide
Right here at Jesus’ side

Behind the Song:
This heart-rending ballad finds a loved one in heaven singing words of encouragement and inspiration to family members left behind and still struggling with loss. “So next time you feel like crying,” the chorus says, “So next time you don’t feel like trying/Just remember I’ll be right here/Smiling down on you/ ... Nothing ever will come between us/Now I’m holding onto the hand of Jesus.” The song was inspired by two families (the Abercrombies and the Clearys) both dealing with the tragic loss of children by clinging to God in faith. Rob says of one of these families, “They just worship God. They know that their son is with Jesus right now, and they know without a doubt that God is real. And that’s what they want other people to know. They want people to know that their son is with Jesus and that Jesus is alive. And when you’re around them, you just get pumped up by the infectious faith they have. This song was written from the perspective of their kids telling mom and dad, ‘You know, it’s OK. You don’t have to worry.’”
