“Just Right” — An Original Song About Relationships

0

Today I was reminded that love is fleeting.

Not the ‘agape’ kind. That kind of love is unconditional. It’s forever. It’s the kind of love God loves his children with and it’s pretty freakin’ close to the kind of love I love my husband and my daughter with.

I mean the ‘phileo’ kind. The touchy-feely kind. The kind that Peter refers to when he tells Jesus he loves him in John chapter 21.  The only kind of love that we humans are really capable of, apart from God.

Apart from Him, we cannot love our spouse the way He commands us to. The way that He loves us. The way that calls you to be willing to die for another.

Relationships all come with their share of ups and downs. Since I got married, I’ve seen several of our mutual friends go through hell. There’s just no better way to put it.

And I must admit: a time or two, I’ve gotten scared.

Divorce is so common in our society today, but Jereme and I vowed from day one that it would not be an option for us. Even if someone cheated. Still, though, I’ve witnessed friends of ours work through issues of infidelity and been amazed that it was even something they could work through. I honestly don’t know if it’s something I’d be able to work through if it ever became an issue for us. I’m grateful that it hasn’t, and I can only pray that it never does.

“‘Til death do us part…”

But sometimes, I do get scared.

I wrote this song fairly recently, but the inspiration for it came to me when a friend of ours was visiting one day several years ago, and he told his wife she was “the bomb that I still love to play with.” I thought that line would make an excellent lyric, so I wrote it down and didn’t revisit it until years later. It reminds me of how awesome relationships can be, even when they’re rocky. And let’s face it. Most normal relationships are. That’s what makes them fun, right? That’s what makes them worth exploring, even though they might explode at any moment…

Video and lyrics below. Enjoy.

 

You are the bomb that I still love to play with
A wave of emotions I can’t wait to ride
Your anger is bright like a beautiful sunset blazing beneath the water’s tide
As it crashes cold against my skin
I can’t describe the state we’re in
But I know it feels just right
Oh, it feels just right
You are the bomb that I still love to play with
A song full of sadness that’s waiting to be sung
Your tears cool me down like a midsummer’s rain
Beating upon my broken lungs
And my heart pounds from deep within
I can’t describe the state we’re in
But I know it feels just right
Oh, it feels just right

Share.
