"This Too Shall Pass" as written by Mark Christopher Batson, India Arie and Andrew Luis Castro....
I've achieved so much in life,
But I'm an amateur in love
My bank account is doing just fine
But my emotions are bankrupt

My body is nice and strong
But my heart is in a million pieces
When the sun is shining so am I
But when night falls, so do my tears

Sometimes the beat is so loud in my heart
That I can barely tell our voices apart
Sometimes the fear is so loud in my head
That I can barely hear what God says

But then I hear a whisper that this too shall pass
I hear the angels whisper that this too shall pass
My ancestors whisper that this day will one day be the past
So I walk in faith that this too shall pass

The one that loved me the most
Turned around and hurt me the worst
Been doing my best to move on
But the pain just keeps singing me songs

My head and my heart are at war
Cause love ain't happening the way I want it
Feel like I'm about to break down
Can't hear the light at the end of the tunnel
Is when I pray for healing in my heart
To be put back together what is torn apart
And I pray for quiet in my head
That I can hear clearly what GOD says
But then I hear a whisper that this too shall pass
I hear the angels whisper that this too shall pass
My ancestors whisper that this day will one day be the past
So I walk in faith that this too shall pass

All of a sudden I realized
That it only hurts worst to fight it
So I embrace my shadow and hold on to the morning light

This too shall pass

I hear the angels whisper that trouble don't have to last always
I hear the angels whisper even the day after tomorrow will one day be yesterday
I hear my angels whisper
I hear my angels whisper
This too shall pass

    General Commenti agree... to me, this song is just saying that time is a healer, and what seems so critical and devastating today will be nothing more than a memory at some point....

    there will always be problems and trouble at certain points in our lives... but India.Arie is saying here that "it dont have to last always" ... we'll get through it, and we'll be stronger, better people for having survived it

    General CommentI'm a bit sure of time being a healer. Healing is a very non closure kind of word. It's kind of like when you get a cut or something and then you get a scar. You eventually forget it existed pretty much but then you look at it...and for a second or so you remember how that shit really hurt. Then you're ok again. That's pretty much how it is for me.

    Anyway, as Billy Corgan sang, "Time heals but I am forever broken." Yeah it will pass and you won't be a dummy crying about it so much...but you will always kind of remember. The heart never forgets.

    But in pertaining to this song...she is jus going through a dryspell of sorts. In a year or so she will forget this..
