"December 1999" as written by and Jolie R Holland....
I'll see you in the springtime after the battle is won
I know I'm crossin' over as far as we have come
And I want your hand in mine, dear, as we face that shining dawn
Eyes open, I'm hopin' you'll be there with me
So gently I want your hand in mine
I want you by my side in the midst of our great victory

The storm clouds had all gathered and we drew our forces nigh
And entered into battle though it clamored to the sky
And we faced that fateful lightning with saints on our side
Eyes open, I'll follow that lonesome road to the top of the mountain
Where the fire is blazing and the heat is astounding
But what's even more amazing is to see you by my side

    General Commentwanting a relationship to make it through hard times, looking forward to realizing that someone has stuck by you to see things calm down again and to enjoy that moment of looking back together from a safe place. i think this is one of the most beautiful songs i've ever heard. i once shared this with someone i loved, but we didn't make it to that safe place. this song still embodies that wonderful ideal.
