Day 4: A calming song

A song that calms me, eh?  I know just the one...
"It's going to be alright" by Sara Groves.  Here are the lyrics.  Just reading them will probably calm you down.
It's going to be alright
It's going to be alright

I can tell by your eyes that you're not getting any sleep
And you try to rise above it, but feel you're sinking in too deep
Oh, oh I believe, I believe that

It's going to be alright
It's going to be alright

I believe you'll outlive this pain in you heart
And you'll gain such a strength from what is tearing you apart
Oh, oh I believe I believe that

It's going to be alright
It's going to be alright

When some time has past us, and the story if retold
It will mirror the strength and the courage in your soul
Oh, oh, I believe I believe,

I believe
I believe

I did not come here to offer you clichÈ's
I will not pretend to know of all your pain
Just when you cannot, then I will hold out faith, for you

It's going to be alright
It's going to be alright


That song has gotten me through many a hard time.  Sara Groves' music is excellent for that.  Her songs are so real and raw, yet also filled with hope.  You can cry while you're listening to them and know that the tears are part of the healing process.  Her music is so inspiring to me, and I love the simplicity of her singing voice.  It just adds to the "real" feeling I get when I am listening to her.  I haven't gotten ahold of her newest album yet (Fireflies and Lullabies, or something like that).  It's also not even that new anymore...2009?  Yeah, I'm getting behind on a lot of music.  But what of that?  There's still so much to enjoy without even scratching the surface of what's new.
