Day 26: Name a song that makes you cry every time you hear it and why


The most touching song for me to date is Christina Perri's A Thousand Years.  I've always loved listening to Christina Perri's songs via Youtube even before she sang Twilight's Breaking Dawn soundtrack. Her voice is strong and soothing.  

The waiting season is our pruning season; it is painful, and at the same time the most productive, the most fulfilling, the most significant and life-changing moment in our lives. It is in the waiting that our characters are being built. 

It is in the waiting that we reveal our true strength, our ingenuity, our limits and the endless possibilities that life offers us. 

It is in the waiting that we discover the beauty in ourselves and in others. It is in the waiting that we are being tested, torn and pushed around by life, which is also when we learn to fight back, push back and stand still.

Also, the first verse of the song is like my song for God. The second verse is like His answer to me.

It's a beautiful song.

Well, the song does not really make me literally cry every time I hear it but it sure does tug in my heartstrings.

"A thousand years of waiting" is just a metaphor but it does feel like a thousand years when you're waiting for something; a breakthrough, an answer to a prayer, a result or a partner. Let's remember that every day, we are one step closer


A Thousand Years

Christina Perri 

Heart beats fast
Colors and promises
How to be brave?
How can I love when I'm afraid to fall?
But watching you stand alone,
All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow.

One step closer

I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling, don't be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more

Time stands still
Beauty in all she is
I will be brave
I will not let anything take away
What's standing in front of me
Every breath
Every hour has come to this

One step closer

I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling, don't be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more

And all along I believed I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more

One step closer
One step closer

I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don't be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more

And all along I believed I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more
