Music Monday: Beauty From Pain – Superchick

superchickMusic is a BIG part of me getting through each day. Certain songs, on certain days, really speak to me. Calm me. Validate me. Heal me. So – I decided to start #MusicMonday here on the blog! Each Monday I’ll post the lyrics to a song that helps me in some way. Maybe they’ll help you too.

Today? I’m sharing Beauty From Pain by Superchick. I’ve loved this song for a long time, but it became even more meaningful when my husband told me of the looming second deployment. I couldn’t wrap my mind around having to go through another deployment – this time with a three year old to raise by myself. All our future plans and dreams, put on hold. Again.

My husband kept reminding me how much stronger we became after the last deployment, even with as difficult as it was at the time. So, I present to you Beauty From Pain:

The lights go out all around me
one last candle to keep out the night
and then the darkness surrounds me
I know I’m alive but I feel like I’ve died

and all that’s left is to accept that its over
my dreams ran like sand through the fist that I made
I try to keep warm but I just grow colder
I feel like I’m slipping away

after all this has passed, I still will remain
after I’ve cried my last, they’ll be beauty from pain
though it won’t be today, someday I’ll hope again
and they’ll be beauty from pain
you will bring beauty from my pain

my whole world is the pain inside me
the best I can do is just get through the day
when life before is only a memory
I wonder why god lets me walk through this place

and though I can’t understand why this happened
I know that I will when I look back some day
and see how you’ve brought beauty from ashes
and made me as gold purified through these flamesafter all this has passed, I still will remain

after I’ve cried my last, they’ll be beauty from pain
though it won’t be today, someday I’ll hope again
and they’ll be beauty from pain
you will bring beauty from my pain

here I am at the end of me
trying to hold to what I can’t see
I forgot how to hope this nights been so long
I cling to your promise, there will be a dawn

after all this has passed, I still will remain
after I’ve cried my last, they’ll be beauty from pain
though it won’t be today, someday I’ll hope again
and they’ll be beauty from pain
you will bring beauty from my pain
