I was pursing my iPod today to find an album that I either haven’t listened to in a while. I came across a Rascal Flatts album that I occasionally listen to. There’s a song on there that I really like that Sus and I heard once called Bless the Broken Road. It’s a great tune, if you’ve never heard it, you should check it out.

Well I have another one of his albums on the iPod as well and there’s a song called Stand, that I’ve heard before, but I don’t think I’ve ever actually got quiet enough to listen to it. This morning I’ve already played it on repeat a few times. I think it puts into words the spot that I find myself in right now. This struggle of 2008 was a very difficult year for Sus and I. Even just reflecting on it in my own mind it brings out a flood of thoughts and emotions that are challenging to say the least. Additionally, we find ourselves embarking upon a natural cross road and I’m worried that we don’t see eye to eye. I know compromise is part of being in relationship and I’m willing to work to find the half way point, I just want us to be happy.

You feel like a candle in a hurricane
Just like a picture with a broken frame
Alone and helpless
Like you’ve lost your fight
But you’ll be alright, you’ll be alright

Cause when push comes to shove
You taste what you’re made of
You might bend, till you break
Cause its all you can take
On your knees you look up
Decide you’ve had enough
You get mad you get strong
Wipe your hands shake it off
Then you Stand, Then you stand
Life’s like a novel
With the end ripped out
The edge of a canyon
With only one way down
Take what you’re given before its gone
Start holding on, keep holding on

[Repeat Chorus]

Everytime you get up
And get back in the race
One more small piece of you
Starts to fall into place

[Repeat Chorus]
