"All This Will Pass" as written by and William Toby Martin....
God this is hard, you've had no sleep,
You've thought of nothing else for weeks
You begin your lines, you thumble with your purse

It's been eating you,
You don't know what to do
And your lie, only made it worse

(Pre-chorus)
You can't expect him to understand
He's not a saint, he's just a man
And you know,
That you can't change what you did

(Chorus)
But if you have forty lives
You get it right by the thirty-ninth
As it is,
All that you could ask
All this will pass

(End of Chorus)

God, you wish like hell
You hadn't done it and you tell
Him, how much you regret it

But you're talking to yourself
You're as lonely and as desperate as a
Kettle boiling, with no there to get it

(Pre-chorus)
All the words, you meant to say
Had in the air and flown away
And vanished,
Into the end of the dying day

(Chorus)
But if you have forty lives,
You get it right by the thirty-ninth
And as it is,
All that that you could ask
All this will pass

(Bridge/solo)
Oh aaahh aah aah aah aah ah
Oh aaahh aah aah aah aah ah

Oh aaahh aah aah aah aah ah
Oh aaahh aah aah aah aah ah
Oh aaahh aah aah aah aah aah

(Pre-chorus)
And if only I had've stayed,
And if only had been there rain
And it's funny,
What a difference then that it makes

(Chorus)
But if you have forty lives,
You get it right by the thirty-ninth
And as it is,
All that that you could ask
All this will pass

    General CommentI was so happy when my boyfriend put this on a mixtape for me! Although this song is definitly not the story of our relationship, I hadn't hear new Youth Group in so long...anyway, it's pretty much about a girl betraying her boy, and it's about trying to heal. I don't think they fix things, but if certain conditions were right or if certain words were said, maybe, but in the end, all of this will pass. She'll eventually get it right and they will both move on.

    General Commentsomeone i love a lot put this on a mix for me and i've been listening non-stop. our situation pretty much mirrors the one in the song: girl hurts boy, girl doesn't stay & runs away, boy hurts girl, just can't add up the sums to find the damage we've done as mr tim rogers would say. i'll get it right one day, maybe.
