“Doubting Thomas” by Nickel Creek. Ever heard it? I was going to attach it, but after a few minutes of trying to find it streaming or tastefully youtubed, I got lazy. Anyhow, give it a good google and keep reading.
There. Isn’t this nice? It’s another honest song about being in an uncertain place, and it’s beautiful for it.
I believe that anyone who has never doubted the things that they hold true has never really learned how to believe them.
This song is about that journey. It’s sad! It’s sad to lose innocence, though I think there are richer joys to be found. But thankfully, this song doesn’t go there. Chris Thile doesn’t tie it all up in a nice package with a happy ending. That wouldn’t be honest. The song is about being in a scary, uncertain place, and those don’t just last three minutes. Sometimes they last a lifetime.
