This is one of those songs that struck me right in the heart – in a good way

Couldn’t believe I hadn’t heard it before. I “discovered” it the way I’ve discovered quite a few of the songs on my playlist: on a TV show. Was watching Parks & Recreation and it came on during a montage that showed some characters moving forward in a significant way. The montage paired with the song made me cry.

I did NOT like Parks & Recreation for the first season and a half. Mostly because IT SUCKED. Really wanted a “new” comedy to watch though – and the write ups online said it got better over time. It did. It got much better. They retooled the writing.

The storylines got better. The characters got deeper. And when the episode with this song in it came on . . . well I was open enough to see a lot of myself in these words, after coming through some difficulties the past couple of years. Thank goodness for support. No matter what.

I’ve bolded the parts that particularly strike me

The new day dawns
And I am practicing my purpose once again
It is fresh and it is fruitful if I win
But if I lose

Ooh, I don’t know
I’ll be tired but I will turn and I will go
Only guessing till I get there then I’ll know
Oh, I will know

And all the children walking home past the factories
Can see the light that’s shining in my window as I write this song to you
And all the cars running fast along the interstate
Can feel that love that radiates, illuminating what I know is true

All will be well
Even after all the promises you’ve broken to yourself
All will be well
You can ask me how but only time will tell

The winter’s cold
But the snow still lightly settles on the trees
And a mess is still a moment I can seize
Until I know

That all will be well
Even though sometimes this is hard to tell
And the fight is just as frustrating as hell
All will be well

And all the children walking home past the factories
Can see the light that’s shining in my window as I write this song to you
All the cars running fast along the interstate
Can feel that love that radiates, illuminating what I know is true

All will be well
Even after all the promises you’ve broken to yourself
All will be well
You can ask me how but only time will tell

You got to keep it up and don’t give up
And chase your dreams and you will find
All in time

And all the children walking home past the factories
Can see the light that’s shining in my window as I write this song to you
And all the cars running fast along the interstate
Can feel that love that radiates, illuminating what I know is true

That all will be well
Even after all the promises you’ve broken to yourself
All will be well
You can ask me how but only time will tell

All will be well
Even after all the promises you’ve broken to yourself
All will be well
You can ask me how but only time will tell
You can ask me how but only time will tell
