"Transitory" as written by and Gerven P A Van Luuk Bas C H Maas....
Life, at its best, you are doing fine
But you're blind, it's china you hold
As it breaks, suddenly it's clear
Beautiful but transitory

But we won't break easy
We won't give in to all unbearable pain
We'll pull through, we won't crack
We'll endure and survive

Oh, transitory
Pain is as life itself
Evanescent as it fades
Transitory

Life, all you've got, all was swept away
Now you see what there is to miss
Suddenly you're stronger than you thought
As you know it's transitory

'Cause we won't break
Survival is all we've got
And our unbearable grief
We'll hold on and won't crack
And we'll value all life

Oh, transitory
Pain is as life itself
Evanescent as it fades

    General CommentAs painful as life can be sometimes, it's worth it to hold on since it's all temporary.

    General Comment"Life: all you've got, all was swept away
    Now you see what there is to miss
    Suddenly you're stronger than you thought
    As you know it's transitory"

    Basically, what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger. When you let go of everything that's hindering you, you can make progress.

    General CommentIt compairs life to a china, it's beautiful, but it can easily crack and then it's gone. Although the song seems negative, I find it to be encouraging. You SHOULD live life, because it won't last forever!
