You know, I always thought the song was directed at another person. Thought he was asking, somewhat demanding, the person of reference to have a little faith in him. But it occurred to me I could be wrong. Gasp! Yes, sometimes I can be wrong. Maybe, just maybe, the singer is having a moment with himself. Maybe, just maybe, he is talking to himself. I mean, we have all done it. Standing in front of the mirror, seriously examining ourselves beyond the physical but to the emotional level. Please tell me I am not the only one!
Sometimes an invisible, inexplicable self-imposed barrier holds us back. A barrier that prevents us from taking a leap of faith and that causes us to run from our goals instead of toward our goals. A barrier that for some strange reason causes us to guess and second guess our plans for our future to the point we can’t even remember our plans. Sigh. I am experiencing that right now and frankly I couldn’t put my finger on this thing, my kryptonite. Then I hear the song and it hit me. (SN: Did notice how I am always getting “hit” by songs?) (more…)
