07. Brighter Days

Opposite Way
by Leeland


Time keeps moving on
Through the sunshine and the storm
And my dreams are set in stone
And someday Iíll be who I want to be
For now Iíll wait
For the sun to shine again
And for now Iíll wait
For the rain to pass away

And Iím looking for the brighter days
When all my hurts seem to fade away
Iím looking for the brighter days to come my way

Faces come and faces go
But none seem to look my way
And walls have stood and walls have fallen
But my heart seems to wait
For now Iíll sit at the end of the road
And for now Iíll wait
At the end of the pathway

Iíll see the sun one day shine upon me
Iíll see the sun one day
And watch the nighttime turn to morning
But for now it all comes back around

Behind the Song:
"When I first wrote this song, it didnít have a hopeful ending. Since it never specifically mentioned the presence of God, we werenít sure if it should go on the record, but then my friend said ďwhat if itís about someone else looking for a ĎBrighter Day,í like a kid in Africa with AIDS or a homeless person?Ē So in that sense, although it may end on a searching note, itís a great challenge for us as believers to go out and really bring hope to others. If we all act out in faith, then better days can truly be achieved." - Leeland Mooring (Leeland)
