I'm not a die-hard country fan- I know, being from Nashville, most expect that I am. I do however like country, and there are a few songs that tend to stick with me. Tend to make me think a lot.. hence the blog.
The Song "Bring It On Home" by Little Big Town now has a new meaning to me.. or maybe I just never really listened to the lyrics.
"You've got someone here who wants to make it all right. Someone that loves you more than life right here. You've got willing arms that'll hold you tight, a hand to lead you on through the night right here. I know your heart can get all tangled up inside. But don't you keep it to yourself. When your long day is over and you can barely drag your feet, the weight of the world is on your shoulders... I know what you need, bring it on home to me.
You know I know you like the back of my hand. You know I'm gonna do all that I can right here. Gonna lie with you 'til you fall asleep. When the morning comes, I'm still gonna be right here. Yes, I am. So take your worries and just drop them at the door. Baby, leave it all behind. When your long day is over and you can barely drag your feet, the weight of the world is on your shoulders... I know what you need, bring it on home to me.
Baby, let me be your safe harbor. Don't let the water come and carry you away. When your long day is over and you can barely drag your feet, the weight of the world is on your shoulders... I know what you need, bring it on home to me."
Above is some of the lyrics to the song.
My husband may not be coming home at the end of each day. But the way he and I are looking at this deployment.. It's just one long work day.
Like the song, I will be here waiting. When his "Long Day" [deployment] is over, and he can barely drag his feet- He's going to be exhausted, there is no doubting that, I'm going to be that person he comes home to. He will have someone at home who wants to make everything alright, everything the song says.
I hear people say, "My life is like a country song".. usually when I hear someone say that, they don't mean it in a positive way. However, This song makes me think my life IS like a country song, and in no way negative. I'm proud to relate to this song because I love my husband more than anything in the world and I will be the one he comes home to. The one who waits for him.
I do love Little Big Town, and they are amazing live. I do not know why I haven't put this song on my "While you're away" playlist. It's the perfect song for it. Needless to say, It will be very soon.
