A passing resemblance

It seems that this is one of those weeks where songs just keep reaching out and grabbing my mind.

I stumbled across this song months ago when I listened to an Eli Young Band album on an airplane in their entertainment system.  I liked this song so much I picked up the CD when I found it on sale at Target.  I hadn't thought much more about it in months, until I read an article this week that the band was finally putting out the song "Guinevere" as a single.

Apparently they hadn't planned to release it, but fan reaction to the song changed their mind - to the point that they pooled their own money to make the video.

What caught me about the song the first time and even more so as I've listened to it this week is that a few of the lines hit a little uncomfortably close to home.  While I would appreciate having the line, "for as much as she stumbles she's running" applied to me, I hope I never think "forgiveness ain't nothing but a lifeless tire on the shoulder of her soul that never rolls."

I'm on an airplane again today with a "pocketful of memories" as I make way home for a very quick stay before I take off again.  I can't help but wonder if I could survive my somewhat crazy work life if I didn't have, like Guinevere, "a handful of records" to turn to when I need to land.

That is an awesome song, Jamie! I can't tell you how many times I've gone straight to my favorite music when I've felt "lost"! Really beautiful sentiments, Jamie!
