My New Favorite Song

Happy Tuesday, Friends! For as long as I can remember, I’ve been passionate about slowing down time and being present exactly where I’m at. My mom instilled this in me around middle school, illustrating it through songs like You’re Gonna Miss This. I’ve never been one to rush growing up. I distinctly remember feeling worried at the beginning of my senior year of high school that time would fly too quickly and I’d miss the experience. Thanks to the intentionality she instilled in me, I can still remember that year vividly, along with every year since.

When I first heard ‘Dear Life’ by High Valley last week, it resonated so much with this value of mine! Scroll down to read through the lyrics and then be sure to give it a listen. It’s quickly become my new favorite song!

Dear Life by High Valley

Dear Life, I hope you know
I’ve loved you every mile down this road
Had my share of hits and misses
Tryin’ to keep between the ditches
Dear Life, I hope you know

Dear Life, what’s your plan
Is where I’m suppose to be, right where I am
If it is, then I’m not leavin’
If it ain’t, then I’ll keep on dreamin’
Dear Life, what’s your plan

Now you’re flying by too fast
I’m about to make you last
I’m beggin’ on you please, just slow down
You’re scaring me to death
I’m tryin’ to catch my breath
Don’t wanna let you go
I’m hangin’ on for dear life
Oh oh dear life
Hangin’ on for dear life
Oh oh dear life

Dear Life, how’s it look
When you read the next few pages of my book
Am I with the ones I love
Down here or up above
Dear Life, how’s it look

I wanna leave my mark
Love til it breaks my heart
Live so loud that my forever
Echoes in the dark
I wanna leave my mark
Love til it breaks my heart
Live so loud that my forever
Echoes in the dark
