"How Life Can Turn" as written by Christopher A. Crisci, Aaron Pillar and Marcus Jordan Young....
Out there in the yard now playing with their dad. I'm amazed at how alike you are. See now the strangeness because I feel so many things all at once, it's wonderful to see. The smiles are everywhere, the cold's gone from the air the sun shines as they play my smile wont wipe away. They're laughing at you, everything that you do. You open your arms to them, they run in to tackle you… it's so good to see you now, and times been good to you, it just so amazing, your smile is shining through. Amazing how life can turn one day to the next you know. I'll figure out where I am and figure which way to go.

    General Comment...i agree...
    it seems like two old friends (or lovers) are seeing each other again for the first time in years. and he seems happy to see that the other person has a family now, and that life is going well for them.


    this song makes me kind of sad... but i think it was meant to be peaceful.

    General CommentIf you put the entire "Two Conversations" album together it goes through a series of stories and events involving a relationship of two people. This song is meant to be peaceful, however, he's only rationalizing the situation. The subsequent song on the album is not as happy, which leads me to believe that this event turned from peace into guilt, regret, self-loathing and envy about his relationship with the other person.

    Just for comparison, "Two Conversations" is to emo what the "The Wall" was to the rock and roll story album. And just like the main character Pink in The Wall–the story does not end–or is meant to end happy.

    General CommentI think this one's about an old friend or an old flame, who the years have been tough for, coming to visit. The old acquaintance sees the person they have come to visit and how he has a family now and is happy, where when they knew each other long ago this scenario would be the last thing one could imagine for him. The person then realizes that even though that at one time, maybe even up until they got to the house that living this idea was still crazy, but once the person sees the children playing with their father, a sort of epiphany is reached and the person now longs for this same type of life.

    My Interpretationrecently I lost my father to cancer. he was diagnosed with stage 4 in May, and died less than 2 months later. in my family, I have 4 brothers and I am the second youngest. my eldest brother got married about 3 years ago, and just welcomed their first child, a beautiful baby boy who was born a day after we've received the news about my father's condition. (there's always a silver lining, even in sad stories) my father and the rest of my family wanted nothing more than for him to be able to see and hold his grandson before his time, but God had other plans. my brother, his wife and their son were in Texas, and my father, in NJ. when he time came, he went peacefully and we were all relieved knowing that his pain and suffering were finally over. but he never was able to see his grandchild, and this song speaks to me almost as if a father who has passed on is the one telling the story, possibly to someone else about loved ones still living, and that they never truly do leave us. how proud he is to see them together and the love that they share, even if he wasn't able to see his sons baby after all, he knows that he had raised his son correct and can live peacefully knowing that his family legacy will live on. they look so much alike and they remind the young father of when he was a kid playing with his late father. one way to look at the song, and very sad at the same time, but it makes me happy knowing that maybe there is that glimmer of hope that loved ones do stick around and watch over us, and guide us, but have no direct way to communicate and connect with us, but all they really want to tell them is that they will be proud of them no matter what. the grandfather raised the young man to be a great man, and knows that he will be an even better father for he will teach his son in the same manner that he was taught, and can let go knowing that everything will be alright in the end, and if it isn't alright, then it surely isn't the end..
    RIP Dad
