A favourite artist of mine recently did a cover of a song that really struck me. You can see the cover here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8RHItY0dh0
These lyrics stood out:
‘What if who I hoped to be was always me?
And the love I fought to feel was always free?
What if all the things I’ve done, yeah
Were just attempts at earning love? Yeah
‘Cause the hole inside my heart is stupid deep, stupid deep
What if where I’ve tried to go was always here?
And the path I’ve tried to cut was always clear?
Why has life become a plan, yeah
To put some money in my hand?
When the love I really need is stupid cheap, stupid cheap’
To try to sum up this song, I’d say that we strive so hard in this life, to be someone else, to earn love, to make money. We do this in part because of the hole in our hearts and the feelings of insignificance we carry. We do these things thinking they’re what we need, when in reality what we need is something we don’t have to strive for – God’s love.
I hope you all enjoy the song!
