Back To The Music 於2021月6月27日 Facebook 專頁已發佈的新歌【Between the Lines】，唱者兼填詞人Aidan藉著這首歌鼓勵我們，帶著珍惜和感恩的心去過每一天，將這份心態化作報恩的動力，成為奔跑信仰路上的燃料！
【Between the Lines 】
On Mother’s Day, you did pray
For wishes three to be granted
The first was starting over
Another was more time
And finally, the third a thankful heart
Little did you know, it’s all about to start
Though it seems you’re trapped at home, no escaping
There’s a hundred trillions stories that need writing
Inspirations are all around
Grab a pencil and write it all down
Sometimes it feels the world is standing still
But just because it stops means not you will
More time more time, need more time
Undo the past, be unbroken,
Many words still left unspoken
Like a seal upon the lips
Its fear that keeps it all chained up inside
Tsunamis of I love yous and goodbyes
Heaven knows that it is not always easy
For a legendary chronicle’s not breezy
Put your eye to the microscope
Every moment is teeming with hope
A simple photograph that you may click
Contains a thousand words one cannot fake
Gotta read between the lines to see clearly
From the bottom of your soul you miss him dearly
Love can travel through space and time
Giving life to your poems and your rhymes
However deep your love is may it be
Reflections of the promises you keep
【Between the Lines】演繹意境
母親節當天，一位小男孩懷著忐忑不安的心情，在親手製作的 MV 裡，埋下了三個願望，祈求能夠一一彌補遺憾。第一個願望，他希望回到過去；第二個願望，他希望有更多時間，與媽媽建立親密的關係；第三個願望，他希望擁有一顆珍惜、感恩和報恩的心。為何會有這些願望呢？第一個願望，他希望回到過去，因為他父親曾經有一位摯友，兩家人常常一起旅行、遊玩，彼此之間的關係，相當親密。而父親這位摯友的離世，雖然已經有一段時間，但是，原來小男孩一直未能離開這種傷痛，很想回到以往，兩家人一起旅行的歡樂時光。
I’d like to dedicate this song to those who are experiencing losses of loved ones and holding regrets in their hearts. Love and a grateful heart can allow you to transcend time and space and morph all regrets into new beginnings.
In the MV that is specially made for Mother’s Day, a boy has made three wishes with it, hoping that all the wishes could come true for him to right his wrong doings and regrets. His first wish is to travel to the past; The second is to have more time to develop a better relationship with his mom; The third is to have a grateful heart that teaches him gratitude and appreciation.
Why did he make these wishes? With the first wish, he wished to go back in time to meet a dear friend of his father. In the old days, the two families were very close and travelled together a lot. This dear uncle has passed away for some time now, but this boy has not grown out of the pain of losing him. He misses the wonderful time when the two families travelled together.
Hearing this story, I really want to cheer him up – yes the world today is so different now, we cannot travel as freely as before, but it doesn’t mean the world just stops. We are spending more time staying at home in the pandemic, but there is so much we could do! What’s most important is whether we could cherish the time we have and turn it into opportunities to bless others.
In the second wish, the boy wants to have more time to mend the relationship with his mother. In the past, the boy didn’t get to express his thoughts and feelings to his mom, not even a thank you. All his feelings have been building up inside, that hinders the relationship between the two. This has always been the regret in his life.
Yes, it’s sad that the boy didn’t get to develop a good relationship with his mom, but it can also be seen as a chance for him to grow. In our everyday life, if we look close enough, there are many amazing things in life that are worth our appreciation. In the case of this boy, he still has a lot of time to work on the relationship with his mom, there is no need at all to feel bad about it. Why don’t we turn this regret into motivation? Treasure every chance you get today and photograph all the precious memories of tomorrow?
When we experience losses, especially our loved ones, how do we cope with the loss and move on? And to cherish everything we have in life even more? As we look back, we realise that good old photos are numbered. We weren’t used to recording the precious moments in our lives with photographs. In these changing times, this little boy spends most of his time at home. He doesn’t know what he could do or contribute to the church.
Listen, focus on your passion, such as music; follow your leaders closely, do the best version of yourself, these will all add up and become tokens of thanks to your leaders and those who have loved and cared for you in the past. Just like the iconic line from the movie “Interstellar”, “Love is the one thing we’re capable of perceiving that transcends dimensions of time and space”. If this boy can turn the pain of moaning into motivation, he can pay back to those who have given him and thrive in the race of faith. The regret you have today will no longer hold, it will be transformed into a power house that fuels you along the way!
What does the Bible teach us about dealing with regrets?.
Let’s take a look at Hebrews 12:1: “Therefore, seeing we also are compassed about by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race before us.” Here, Paul details the importance of casting aside our burdens to run our spiritual race unhindered and wholeheartedly. Regrets may come in mistakes, missed opportunities, or even the loss of loved ones. We may find it hard to cope with the absences of people we cared for and wallow in shame and guilt over the things we could’ve done better. Yet what does the Bible tell us to do?
Paul says those we loved, those who ran the race themselves to their best capabilities, who have left us temporarily, are up there in the clouds. They are standing in the glory of heaven, basking in God’s presence, eagerly anticipating our every move. They watch on with joy and enthusiasm as we raise the torch they left behind, continuing the work of the Lord in an even more exciting fashion. Knowing this, my friends, let us do as Paul says, cast aside all emotional burdens, and finish the race God has laid before us. Finishing what the witnesses above have started can genuinely immortalize their memories.
