For today’s Tune, we asked Rhys and Esther Duursma of Husband and Wife duo, Mayfair Lane, to fill us in on the story behind Their song “Go Again”.
Everyone hates seeing a friend or family member go through a hard time. We often want to fix it, make it stop and prevent it from happening again. It was from that place of frustration, of feeling like I couldn’t do enough to make it all better, that I wrote ‘Go Again’ as a message of encouragement to a few friends of mine that were facing uncertain and painful situations. The song later became the title track and first single from our debut album.
When your heart breaks for others, when you show up and sit in the uncertainty with them, when you imperfectly attempt to embody ‘caring’ not just speak about it…your capacity to love becomes even greater and you become a life-giving voice that says “Get up my friend, we can go again.”
So I encourage you today to step out in love and show up to care. Share this song with a friend and let them know you’re with them. Spend time listening to someone who is struggling. You don’t know just how big your heart can get and the impact you can have on someone else’s life until you love people fully, not just when it’s convenient and easy.
What a privilege it is to care for those around us, as raw as it can be.
