Take It On Faith

      3 Comments on Take It On Faith

Growing up on country music means I’ve been a fan of the Dixie Chicks for as long as I can remember.  I’ve enjoyed listening to the way their sound changed and even used their documentary, Shut Up and Sing, as research for a paper in college. With that, I’m sure you can imagine my excitement when I heard Natalie Maines was working on a solo album.  And that excitement only grew when I first heard “Take It On Faith.”

When I first heard this song, it was like it reached into my heart and touched it and I can’t quite explain what happened. All I can say is that it didn’t only happen that one time.  I’ve still only heard the song a handful of times and each time, it makes me feel something so incredible.  And while I out running my 10k Saturday evening (more on that later), I was struggling; I was nearing the final mile and still finding myself doubting my ability to finish or to keep running in that moment.  Then this song came and I was brought to tears and I just kept moving.  In that moment I remembered that I wasn’t going to give up, especially not after making it this far and making through the hardest and hottest point.

 

 

There’s only one road

In and out of my heart

I don’t know where it ends

And where it starts

 

But the night is young

Younger than we

So lets burn right and wrong

I’ll forgive you

And you’ll forgive me

 

Take it on faith

That I’ll be there

When the pain comes

And I’ll take it all on faith

That you will try, try not to run

When it’s hard, so hard

 

I can be on fire

Yah I can hold my own

But inside I’m just a girl

Who’s scared to be alone

 

Today was hard

But tomorrow’s new

And if you’re there for me

I’ll be there for you

Yes I will see us through

 

And I’m taking it on faith

That I’ll be there when the pain comes

And I’ll take it on faith

That you will try, try not to run

When its hard, so hard

 

I’ll take it on faith that you’ll be there

When the pain comes

I’ll take it all on faith

That you will try, try not to run

Take it on faith

Take it on faith

Take it on faith

Take it on faith

Take it on faith

Take it on faith

When it’s hard

so hard

 

While I haven’t listened to the whole album through, I did buy it.  I’m confident it will be all I hope it to be!
