My song is Someone Somewhere Tonight by Kellie Pickler. It's such a lovely song, with so much that can be read between the lines.
Someone somewhere tonight,
Is taking their first steps
Letting go of the hands that held them
And trusting themselves
It's hard to take those first steps. Let go of everything and trust yourself for the first time, even if there's no guarantee there's something more out there.
Faith can hold you up or hurl you to the ground. It's the moments in between that make it worth it; like this song's quiet moment. Somewhere in the world around them, someone is wasting away in prison. Someone is using alcohol to get them through the night. Someone is taking those first tentative steps, and someone is hanging in the balance between life and death.
But so are they.
And it's a beautiful dance, even though it has to end. They have this moment, and it's enough because it has to be.
