"Beauty From Pain"

(by Superchick) 

Beauty From Pain by Superchick on Grooveshark

I'm running out of time, because I spent the last portion of my evening helping Cody create his first Scavengerween costume! I'm posting today's song for two reasons...1) Superchick's latest {& final} album came out today, and 2) it really did change my life. I don't mean to do it a disservice by not elaborating. But on Day 29 of this series, y'all know of my life struggles and can probably understand quite easily how I could relate to this song. It was the title track of an album written out of painful experiences that the members of the band had gone through. Though I wasn't their target audience, I was encouraged by the beautiful hope and truth provided in the song (& the entire album).

And though I can't understand why this happened
I know that I will when I look back someday
And see how You've brought beauty from ashes
And made me as gold purified through these flames

After all this has passed, I still will remain
After I've cried my last, there'll be beauty from pain
Though it won't be today, someday I'll hope again
And there'll be beauty from pain, You will bring beauty from my pain

Here I am at the end of me
Tryin' to hold to what I can't see
I forgot how to hope
This night's been so long
I cling to Your promise
There will be a dawn
