Sometimes Things Don’t Turn Out Like You Expect

When Andy Osenga’s The Morning came out two and a half years ago (to much fanfare on this blog) I would not have predicted that New Beginning would become the signature track off the record. Early In The Morning would’ve been my bet, with then either House of Mirrors or Marilyn next on my list.

Thirty months later, though, New Beginning has become the most durable track, evidenced by, if nothing else, the fact that Andy is performing it almost every night this year on the Behold the Lamb Christmas tour.

The bridge of the song still gets me every time:

I can feel a prayer rising
And I don’t even know the words
Still the groaning is the postage
And it will not be returned
Though we’re living in this rubble
Of our reckless plans and games
We are reaching for the promise
That we will not stay the same…

Thanks, Andy, for a great song.
