Love can feel old sometimes, it can feel burdened. It can feel the heat of time;trying to bend it, gnawing at its threads or trying to break it apart.
But this song talks about hope and love in a way that will make it seem new to me always. And then I know I can feel this way forever, unchanging and unafraid through eternity.
Love never is about giving up. Its about embracing the salty truth (as well as all the sweetness) in the same way you would embrace the salty taste of sea in a breeze on the beach on a summer night. The ocean may scare you in the dark; with its vastness stretching across the horizon, covered with the mysteries of the sky, but you cannot stop loving it; loving the moon for shining the way it does and illuminating the water in its glittering silver light, loving the sand texture beneath your feet, loving the sounds of the waves crashing on the shore, feeling your transcendence each time it washes away your footprints. And yet you walk on because all of it together is making that moment worthwhile!
Because your love can always feel new and exciting to you, no matter how old and established it is. Just like this song. 🙂
She needs me now but I can’t seem to find the time,
I’ve got a new job now on the unemployment line,
And we don’t know how,
How we got into this mess
Is it god’s test?
Someone help us ’cause we’re doing our best,
Trying to make it work but man these times are hard
But we’re gonna start by
Drinking old cheap bottles of wine,
Sit talking up all night,
Saying things we haven’t for a while
A while, yeah,
We’re smiling but we’re close to tears,
Even after all these years,
We just now got the feeling that we’re meeting for the first time
-For the First Time, The Script.
PS: This song is probably my most favourite song of all. Maybe because of what it says or because of the memories attached with it, I don’t think I can ever stop loving For the First Time! ^_^
