about

This song is a testament to God's infinite and divine nature, a realization that the only thing in life that matters is that which is permanent and unfailing. Despite what we so often tell ourselves, our troubles, our possessions, and our achievements on Earth are but fleeting glances in the eternal scope. The kingdom of heaven is close at hand, and this song is an imploration to spend your time down here focused on the things above! "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall never pass away." - Matthew 24:35 (NIV)

lyrics

I’ve put stock in things now vanishing invested time and energy
this fleeting world it flies by too soon
and I’ve focused on the past alas it seems these things weren’t built to last
I watch them fall and crumble next to you

the burdens that we carry are all temporary
photographs and memories will fade
the storms we’re left to weather will not last forever
when all is said and done you will remain

we’re passengers transitioning from highs to lows and in between
exhausted by the search it seems we’re spent
to dwell to keep it in my mind ensures that I’d be left behind
confused by life and asking where it went

consistently you’ve shown consistency
in a world where ever-changing means that nothing’s here to stay
still you remain

and when the lights finally fade
we’ll find ourselves standing face to face
with things that I’ve gripped tight and hoped to save
your hand is clenched in mine to do the same
