Beautiful Times Lyrics

Play "Beautiful Times"
on Amazon Music

A spark soaring down
through the pouring rain,
and restoring light to the lighthouse.
A slow motion wave
on the ocean
stirs my emotion up like a rain cloud.
When did the sky turn black?
and when will the light come back?
A cab driver...

    I think the song explains us that difficult times are in a sense a blessing , because when a difficult time passes it shows us that time ,good or bad, passes and the passage of a bad one cools us AND shows that its never the end...

    To me, it seems something based off of a loved one dying or someone trying to die, especially in the third verse:

    A cab driver turned to skydiver
    Then to survivor
    Dying to break down
    A blood brother, surrogate mother
    Hugging each other, crying their eyes out

    A cab driver turned to skydiver: Someone who jumps off a plane
    Turned to survivor: They survived, which to me sounds dark
    Dying to breakdown: They want to end it.
    The last to lines go with a theme of losing someone.

    That's my interpretation.

    Whenever I listen to this song my mind always wanders to 9/11 when the twin towers were attacked. Does anyone else experience this?
    I kind of want to know if it's just me. Thanks;)

    And who else agrees that Adam's music is amazing! I'm so glad he makes his music in God's image, thank you Adam for reminding me,

    "This isn't the end..."
