Faith

The last stanza always just takes my breath away.

I can hear you downstairs crying on the phone
Telling someone that I'm here but you still feel all alone
Maybe we were too young?
"Goodbye, I've gotta go"
I can hear the baby waking up
Got to get back to the life I know

I should have never believed him
Maybe I should just leave him?

Maybe I'm not, but you're all I got left to believe in
Don't give up on me
I'm about to come alive.
And I know that it's been hard
And it's been a long time coming
Don't give up on me
I'm about to come alive

No one thought I was good enough for you
(Except for you).
Don't let them be right, after all that we've been through.
'Cause somewhere over that rainbow
There's a place for me -
A place with you

Maybe I'm not, but you're all I got left to believe in
Don't give up on me
I'm about to come alive.
And I know that it's been hard
And it's been a long time coming
Don't give up on me
I'm about to come alive

In every frame upon our wall
Lies a face that's seen it all.
Through ups and downs (and then more downs)
We helped each other up off the ground.

No one knows what we've been through
But making it ain't making it without you.

What leaves me breathless is the repeated promise "I'm about to come alive."

I expect what resonates with me about this song may not be what a lot of people see in it.

Children are such a joy, but they can sure put a strain on a relationship. Being tired and overwhelmed doesn't bring out the best in either men or women. I remember that feeling so well. I wouldn't do anything differently, but I wish I'd had a bit more of the perspective back then that only comes with having made it to the other side.
