Tune in Tuesday: Something Like Normal – After the Storm

Tune in Tuesday is brought to us by the lovely Ginger of GReads!

Last week a very special book was released to the masses:

Something like Normal by Trish Doller

If you haven’t already picked up this incredible book, I urge you to do so. It’s so incredibly GREAT! You can check out my review for more about it and my feelings on it.

This book moved me so much and this song I’ve picked for it had the same effect, it moved me. I won’t lie to you, friends…I cried while listening to this song and seeing Travis, the main character in Something Like Normal, in the lyrics.

The words are so, so fitting. If you’ve read it, I’d love to hear if you agree! :)

And after the storm,
I run and run as the rains come
And I look up, I look up,
on my knees and out of luck,
I look up.

Night has always pushed up day
You must know life to see decay
But I won’t rot, I won’t rot
Not this mind and not this heart,
I won’t rot.

And I took you by the hand
And we stood tall,
And remembered our own land,
What we lived for.

There will come a time, you’ll see, with no more tears.
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.

And now I cling to what I knew
I saw exactly what was true
But oh no more.
That’s why I hold,
That’s why I hold with all I have.
That’s why I hold.

And I will die alone and be left there.
Well I guess I’ll just go home,
Oh God knows where.
Because death is just so full and man so small.
Well I’m scared of what’s behind and what’s before.

There will come a time, you’ll see, with no more tears.
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.

And there will come a time, you’ll see, with no more tears.
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.

    I saw Trish in Ft. Myers this past weekend. I love the book, it is an OUTSTANDING debut. I agree with you on those lyrics. That could be Travis’s life song, right there. Now I’m off to listen to the whole album. Thanks for sharing!!

      Right?! And how lucky that you got to meet Trish! I would have loved to have been there. :) Hope you enjoy more Mumford & Sons songs! Thanks for your comment!

    I love this song. *sigh* So good! I have yet to read this book, but if it fits with this song, I can’t wait! Thanks very much for the recommendation!
