Back To The Music 於2021月8月8日 Facebook 專頁已發佈的新歌【End is nearing】，唱者兼填詞人Aidan回想過去的爸爸在加拿大讀書時，曾患上腸癌。當時的他孤身離鄉別井，親友不在身旁，只能獨自在絕境中，以信心相信神醫治。
【End is nearing】
Doctor where are you
In this sea of blue
I’m running outta time and things to do
Every moment you’re gone I die a little more
The minute hand is ticking
The end is nearing
Will you tell me the final verdict
The hour glass is spilling
Your lips are moving
Still I cannot believe it
I have reached new heights
I’m not prepared to say goodbye
Counting down to
Every breath inching towards destruction
Every move that I make
Every thought that I am formulating
Is it driving me insane
Every day another piece of my body is torn away
I’m suffocating underneath the weights
Mirror on the wall
Waiting down the hall
If we meet again, I won’t survive the fall
Cannot bear to take another look at you
Arise oh broken-hearted, I know you’re weary
Picking up all your smithereens
Discard your heavy burdens and altogether
We’ll rewrite your story
興起吧 心碎的你 深知你很疲累
In time to restore
The missing pieces of your mind
Every movie has an ending
Is it cheap or is it satisfying
You decide who to play
All the costumes and the sets are standing by
Making ready the finale
For a twist, no one expected to witness,
a film for the ages
The audience erupts into applause
Cease your counting
Live your days like you possess no other
Every cloud in the sky,
every popsicle you lick in summer
‘Nother blessing to deliver
When the rooster crows you’ll wake up and say to yourself
I am better
No longer mulling over your regrets
LP：It’s already in place, so take the step
【End is nearing】歌詞演繹
This song takes inspiration from my dad’s past suffering of being treated for colon cancer. At that time, he walked through despair and found the answer through his great faith in God’s spiritual healing! This journey of my dad and how he persevered with the power of a pure heart simply relying on God makes him an even greater role model that I admire!
How much he understands the Bible, the complete trust in God and his strength all added up to help him overcome this greatest challenge in life at that time and get healed. I believe that love can transcend beyond time and space. I hope this song will encourage and accompany my dad who is suffering at that time. Similarly, for those of you who are suffering from illness at this point in time, I hope this song will bring God’s healing and comfort to you. Praise the Lord!
A patient in pain is tossing and turning in bed. Looking through the small window, he sees doctors and nurses in blue uniforms. From afar, it’s almost like roaming in a big ocean where no one can come to rescue. In the midst of a serious illness, the patient is eager to know his condition. But he could only lie in bed, helplessly moaning in pain, “Where is the doctor?”
When the doctor finally showed up, the patient asked anxiously, “How is my condition?” The doctor told him the diagnosis, he just couldn’t process any of the bad news. He feels as if he is trapped in an hourglass. Time is passing as the sand falls on him, piling layer by layer on his body. There is nothing he can do, but suffocates by pressure.
Tick tock, tick tock, the patient’s condition deteriorates every minute.Just like a bomb that is about to go off, it can explode at any second. Life is slipping away quietly. Every tick of the clock is suffocating. Every single thought is driving him crazy. He is almost losing his mind under these pressures and pain.
Every time he passes by a mirror, he can’t bring himself to see the person in it.Every close look of himself can hurt so much, especially for a fragile soul like him at that stage.
At this very moment, he sees a child in the mirror. That’s his son from the future! After hearing his father’s story, he travelled in time and space to come here to encourage his dad. At that special moment, the two meet each other. The son sees his father suffering in pain and despair. In the past, his dad has always been the big guy standing strong and firm like a giant, but the person he sees now is like a broken vessel. The son knows well in his heart that his father would overcome this illness in the future. But looking at him at that moment, he is really hoping to do something for his dad. Picking up the scattered pieces, he wants to assemble them and mend the wounds.
Everyone of us is the star of our own movie in life. Although God has designed the stage, set the props and even tailored a unique plot for each of us, it takes YOU to play on that performance! We should all be honest with ourselves. Taking the perspective of the protagonist, see the world from that lens and live out the attributes of a kind and responsible leading character. This is what his dad has taught him. He just wanted Dad to hear it now to cheer him on.
I know that at this moment, there are many people in the world who are suffering from serious or even fatal illnesses. They have been in the lowest points in life and close to emotional outburst, and there seems to be no answer in sight. Apart from telling you about my dad’s miraculous healing testimony, I also want to give you all encouragement that you will treasure every second and minute of your life, and all the small things in life that may seem trivial, despite how hard your life can be right now. As simple and small as enjoying an ice popsicle in hot summer, or looking at the beautiful cloud floating in the blue sky. We should always have a grateful heart and take nothing for granted. This is the only way to make your life count.
Tick.tock.Tick.tock! Time is running out, and so are your choices!
