One of my favorites

I just re-discovered one of my favorite songs ever (and it happens to be playing in my playlist right now). The song is entitled "When You Come Back Down" and it's by the great Christian group Nickel Creek. I found this song rather accidentally in Spring 2006 while mixing songs for the current gradating class of my high school's Senior Slide Show.

It tells of a person being the foundation, the rock, the friend who will always be there, no matter the distance, no matter the change, no matter the time, and is one of the most powerful songs I've ever heard. Not only does it have a beautiful sound, but an equally as beautiful message that really touches me.

I like to think that, at some point in our lives, each of us are either that person flying high, thinking back to the one that is holding the line and waiting for us, or the one seeing our friend off to their journeys and successes, yet keeping their memory and love close to our heart.

Why not select the song on the right and read through the lyrics at the same time? Enjoy.


"When You Come Back Down"

You got to leave me now, you got to go alone 
You got to chase a dream, one that's all your own 
Before it slips away 
When you're flyin' high, take my heart along 
I'll be the harmony to every lonely song 
That you learn to play 

When you're soarin' through the air 
I'll be your solid ground 
Take every chance you dare 
I'll still be there 
When you come back down 
When you come back down 

I'll keep lookin' up, awaitin' your return 
My greatest fear will be that you will crash and burn 
And I won't feel your fire 
I'll be the other hand that always holds the line 
Connectin' in between your sweet heart and mine 
I'm strung out on that wire 

And I'll be on the other end, to hear you when you call 
Angel, you were born to fly, and if you get too high 
I'll catch you when you fall 
I'll catch you when you fall 

[Bridge:]
Your memory's the sunshine every new day brings 
I know the sky is calling 
Angel, let me help you with your wings 

When you're soarin' through the air 
I'll be your solid ground 
Take every chance you dare 
I'll still be there 
When you come back down 

Take every chance you dare, 
I'll still be there 
When you come back down 
When you come back down


Nice, huh?
