It may come as no surprise that we're spending the first few days of 2022 recapping some of the best songs that came out in 2021. In that vein, I have to commend The Belonging Co for their incredible work on See The Light, and especially on this song, "The Truth." Not only is it such a great message, but it also, musically, is just a journey beyond what you tend to hear in praise music. It builds up, slows, down, and everything in between. There are moments I'll sing one part or another to myself, and it amazes me that each is from the same song. And to be in the room to sing the "ooh" together is an experience you'll never forget.
What can cause the broken things to heal?
Well well well, here we are again. Down to the wire. 2021 ending, 2022 beginning, and very few people have nice things to say. I vote we jump in and enjoy the art we were given this year, and quietly let 2022 begin. Just be nice and gentle with it. K? Let's go.
1. P!nk - "All I Know So Far"
Haven't always been this way
I wasn't born a renegade
I felt alone, still feel afraid
I stumble through it anyway
I wish someone would have told me that this life is ours to choose
No one's handing you the keys or a book with all the rules
The little that I know I'll tell to you
When they dress you up in lies and you're left naked with the truth
You throw your head back, and you spit in the wind
Let the walls crack, 'cause it lets the light in
Let 'em drag you through hell
They can't tell you to change who you are
That's all I know so far
And there you have it my loves.
Let's do this a little more often in 2022, k? Because music's worth it.
Till tomorrow - here's the playlist. Enjoy, happy new year, and goodnight. :)
Because songs define our moments.
