A song that I've been finding a lot of solace in lately

Recommended Posts



I hope that this is not unwelcome or in the wrong place, but, there is a particular song by a band I like very much which I have been taking a lot of comfort in lately, both because it is a soothing and calm song, and because lyrically it makes me feel very hopeful about the future. I've been listening to this literally ten or twenty times a day, and wanted to share it. I'm going to post the lyrics first, and then a link to the song itself on Youtube. If you like it, the whole album that it's off of is great, but this one song really shines as something I find hope in.


The Mountain Goats - Never Quite Free

It's so good to learn that right outside your window

There's only friendly fields and open roads

And you'll sleep better when you think

You've stepped back from the brink

And found some peace inside yourself

Laid down your heavy load

It gets all right to dream at night

Believe in solid skies and slate blue earth below

But when you see him you'll know


It's okay to find the faith to saunter forward

With no fear of shadows spreading where you stand

And you'll breathe easier just knowing that the worst is all behind you

And the waves that tossed the raft all night have set you on dry land

It gets okay to praise the day

Believe in sheltering skies and stable earth beneath

But hear his breath come through his teeth

Walk by faith , tell no one what you've seen


It's so good to learn that from right here the view goes on forever

And you'll never want for comfort and you'll never be alone

See the sunset turning red let all be quiet in your head

And look about, all the stars are coming out

They shine like steel swords

Wish me well where I go

But when you see me you'll know
