Singled Out: Release The Sunbird (Rogue Wave) - Always Like the Son
I wrote this song shortly after my grandmother passed away. She was a very delicate soul and I was with her in her last moments. In the hospital, she told me she was afraid to die and just wasn't ready yet. And it made me reflect on whether or not I was a good grandson to her and if I ultimately have given enough to those that are the closest to me. There is this image I have in mind of whom I aspire to be and then there are the rare times in life when the mirror is held up and I see myself for who I really am. I think we always feel like we never do enough – but it is this sense of acknowledgement that helps us hopefully get to the next stage: forgiveness. Once we can accept that we are imperfect and our lives are littered with mistakes, only then can we move forward and improve ourselves. I hope.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
