Beautiful Times Lyrics
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..."
