Lyrically, this song is inspired by a few of the random adventures shared with my wife while the song title is an emphasis on the idea that there are many more adventures to come.


Song Lyrics:

~ Verse One ~
A passionate kiss under a Christmas tree in the dead of winter seems like a distant memory when you stop and consider the roads less traveled and shiner you could have gotten the day before you said your vows because you stood too close to that guy in the crowd. Poison ivy thighs on a hike out in the middle of nowhere when we almost lost our dog for fear because he was chasing a deer back when we used to still mail out the post cards to all the people that remember him well.

~ Verse Two ~
The Marfa lights that we didn’t get to see on a mountains edge where I operated that telescope with no regrets in a small desert town of cinder blocks that we couldn’t touch, but guess what… we did.

~ Verse Three ~
Whatever happened to the monthly photo booth tradition now that we’ve adopted our son we’ve go a band new condition where he needs something to remember us by in case our grave markers end us side by side. But of course Christ could return before that, and if He does, I’ll be holding your hand as we ascend with a burning feeling in the heart like the first time we met when I asked you if I could use your living room laundry mat.

~ Chorus ~
All the painting that release the pain. Every brush stroke is your attempt to let go. Nothing to be ashamed about. Everyone wrestles with doubt. Let go and let God.
