Thoughts on Songs with Zac Brown Band
2 years ago
ZBB delivers yet another strong Country power ballad, this time exposing the raw feelings of the inevitable end of a relationship. Though the cause for this end is left open for interpretation, it allows many people to personally identify with. Some relationships don't necessarily end in a messy disaster, but there's still pain in the silent realization that no matter what, "I could tell that it was over... We will never make it."
I love this whole song, but this verse in particular speaks to me. Always very close to my family, I identify strongly with the importance of the strength in family. It doesn't matter if you live in huge house, wear the most expensive clothes, or anything else like that. What truly matters is that you are surrounded by the ones you love.
I love this meaning behind this song. It's very melancholy & a story that is too often pushed aside by the public. A lot of fathers out there are separated from their children, and the public sees them as deadbeat dads no matter the circumstances. That is simply not the truth. There are plenty of dads out there who WISH they could see their children more, and I think this song does great justice to that emotion.
