If you hung out around this blog for awhile, I’m sure you already know that music plays a significant roll in how I process my life. The latest such song is “Disappear” by the Gabe Dixon Band. Last night I wrote this in my journal:

“We’re still tired and being tired brings out frustrations. Little pestering things that add up and become major discussions. When we’re overwhelmed and coming off of a busy schedule that leaves us exhausted, life comes to light. We have conversations that would be better served when we’re rested and thinking straight.

“It’s just strange that that’s the way life works, that when we’re down we’re most susceptible to our frustrations. It seems inevitable. The question is how do we ensure that whatever comes out of our mouths is full of grace or at the very least said with an option to make all statements retractable.

“Yet, in the same breath, it’s important to have the chance to vent and get life out in the open. If the time isn’t perfect, so be it. That means working through life one tough conversation at a time. It means admitting when you’re wrong or out of place. It means loving each other through the ups and downs of busy schedules and exhaustion. This whole family thing is working together to create the most loving environment possible.”

I love the words in the second verse:

I’ll kiss your lips when you’re dreaming; I’ll keep watch when you sleep. And I won’t stop believing when time makes me weak•We’ve got love on our side•We’re one step ahead.”

It’s in the midst of the craziness of life when we realize how much we need each other. Our frustrations come from our need to be loved, and once we recognize that we truly are, the rest of our life falls into place. This song is a reminder to keep clinging to each other until we can disappear together and find rest.

DISAPPEAR

There’s no time for a warning – We’ve got to make our move
We can’t wait until morning – We’ll use the light of the moon
We’ve got love on our side – We’re one step ahead
There’s no time for lies – There’s no time for regret
Holding on to love – We can’t give in ‘cause
Right or wrong – We’ll hear the angels’
song and lose our fear
And we’ll disappear – Yeah we’ll disappear

I’ll kiss your lips when you’re dreaming
I’ll keep watch when you sleep – And I won’t stop believing
When time makes me weak – We’ve got love on our side
We’re one step ahead – There’s no time for lies
There’s no time for regret – Holding on to love
We can’t give in ‘cause – Right or wrong
We’ll hear the angels’ song and lose our fear
And we’ll disappear – Yeah we’ll disappear
Falling slow – Fall from view
I’ll follow – I’ll find you
