Or songs, whatever.
Head Over Feet by Alanis Morissette holds memories that I should probably forget, but simply cannot. I recall I’ve mentioned this song before, but it’s one of my favorites, and with it comes memories also.
Its meaning to me, is that, well…No matter how something starts out, it can end up becoming wonderful.
Alanis sings about her friend with benefits becoming more than just a lover. That what started as sex, turned into something greater. And at first it simply related to my life at the time. My friend with benefits situation grew past sex, and feelings changed. (They also died, but that’s really not the point.)
I Still Believe and Walk by Faith are both by Jeremy Camp, and go hand-in-hand. These two songs literally helped me through the death of my baby brother. I would cry my eyes out as I listened to them. No matter where I was, I would cry if I heard these songs play.
Now, seven and a half years later, I hear either one, and all my memories come flooding back. I don’t cry anymore when I hear either one, unless it’s been an emotional day anyway, but I do definitely remember everything from that time right after his untimely death.
Those songs mean comfort.
Awesome God by Rich Mullins will be the third song. I know, what’s up with all these Christian songs? (Minus Alanis, but still, this makes three mentioned in a single post.)
I would take walks with my mom, and we’d sing. This was one of our favorites, and every night, we’d walk, talk, share…and sing. I miss the closeness we once shared, but I guess sometimes things change.
It was wonderful, being so close to my mom. I always think of her and our walks and singing when I hear it, and I wonder if she, too, remembers. I know the song is about God, but its meaning always goes a little further to me. It’s God, and fond memories of my mom.
