Divorce is hard. So are breakups from a long term or committed relationship.

This work comes from reflecting on what we may want to say to someone we are in a relationship with that has experienced the hardship of a divorce or break up and the insecurities it can bring into a new relationship.

Every Day

 

Verse 1:
 

We both had that time where it was supposed to be
for better or worse.
We touched the scars
while we wondered if the memories would ever fade.

Now I watch you sitting there
not having any clue how you make it hard to breathe.
Tried my best to show you my worst,
all you did was smile and say I wasn’t making you run.

Chorus:

 

People always say
through thick and thin
they’ll be there to catch you when you fall,
now all that’s true but what I really want to say
is thank God he made you
so I can love you every day.

 

Verse 2:

 

There isn’t much that I can promise
except that there will be joy along with pain.
You’ll have times I drive you crazy
and times you won’t know what to say.

Through it all
I’ll do my best to heal those scars,
hold you when you need it,
be your voice when you can’t find the words to say,
lift you up when the world becomes too much,
while I live in wonder how every day I can love you more

Chorus:

 

Cause people always say
through thick and thin
they’ll be there to catch you when you fall,
now all that’s true but what I really want to say
is thank God he made you
so I can love you every day.

Bridge:

 

Just know that you aren’t the only one who’s scared
but I know if I didn’t take this chance
I’d regret it every day,

Cause I know life is better with your hand in mine
with our shadows trailing behind us as one,
echoing what I feel when I’m with you
but never found the words to say.

Chorus:

 

Cause people always say
through thick and thin
they’ll be there to catch you when you fall,
now all that’s true but what I really what to say
is thank God he made you
so I can love you every day
