About the song:
This morning, I woke up (or was woken up) and thought about airplanes…
…and then I thought about people flying away (figuratively/literally).
So I started playing a few chords and then a version of a piece of scripture hit me and I went into a mad scramble to find it. When I randomly opened the Bible, I was at 1 John 5 [show]ERROR: The IP key is no longer supported. Please use your access key, the testing key 'TEST'
…and after reading, it was exactly the verse that was tugging at my heart, while I was writing the song.
9 If we receive the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater; for the testimony is this, that He has testified concerning His Son.
10 The one who believes in the Son of God has the testimony in himself; the one who does believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed in the testimony that God has given concerning His Son.
11 And the testimony is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.
12 He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life.
13 These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life.
You woke up to the bad news // that your brother flew away.
You break down and start crying // even though you know he’s okay.
(Cause) But goodbyes aren’t forever…
and farewells aren’t so long.
One day we’ll see each other // and know where You have gone.
You woke up to the grey skies // but that doesn’t mean there’s no sunlight.
You can’t see or hear the angels // their chorus of thousands of wings in flight.
