No mixing words here; when I listen and watch the video of ‘Believe’ by Brooks & Dunn, I weep.
Believe by Brooks & Dunn, #believe #havefaith – [Tweet this]
Although the song is about the precious friendship between a young boy and an old man, it doesn’t prevent me from thinking of my recently passed father with the singing of this powerful lyric, “You can’t tell me it all ends in a slow ride in a hearse’ – My hands leave the keyboard and I bury my palms over my face remembering this final slow ride with my father – I know life can’t possibly end just like that – we go on, I know we do,
So Yes, I Believe Too – A Moving Country Song about Having Faith
The song encompasses all the good things people so selflessly do for others, especially those who’ve served. The old man in the song shares the stories of his life including his military service with a little boy. The little boy grows older and remains friends with old man Wriggly his entire life: A beautiful relationship, one we all treasure with our senior mentors who impact our life, who teach us.
‘If there was ever anybody who deserved a ticket to the other side, it would be that sweet old man’ – Words expressed by the young boy when he finds out his mentor and friend passed away …’You know I’m convinced the longer that I live, this can’t be, this can’t be all there is’…more poignant thoughts expressed in these lyrics.
The video begins with the little boy and old man Wriggly sharing time together on his front porch. The most painful part of the circle of life is depicted at the end when the young man runs with grief to Old Man Wriggly’s porch and reflects upon him and their loving relationship.
We all have something to teach, something to give, and life goes on with the memory and love of those who have touched us, and they live on. I believe too.
