Music Monday: Nothing More – “Fade In / Fade Out”

Today for Music Monday we are listening to “Fade In / Fade Out” by Nothing More. Being a father the words to this song are even more impactful and I cannot help but get a little misty-eyed when I listen to the song. It’s also rare that a music video adds more to a song. However, for this song, I chose to use the actual video instead of the lyrics or audio-only versions as I think it really tugs at the heartstrings.


Nothing More
“Fade In / Fade Out”

Just the other day I looked at my father
It was the first time I saw he’d grown old
Canyons through his skin and the rivers that made them
Carve the stories I was told

He said, “Son
I have watched you fade in
You will watch me fade out
I have watched you fade in
You will watch me fade out
When the grip leaves my hand
I know you won’t let me down

Go and find your way
Leave me in your wake
Always push through the pain
And don’t run away from change
Never settle, make your mark
Hold your head up, follow your heart
Follow your heart”

Just the other day I stared at the ocean
With every new wave, another must go
One day you’ll remember us laughing
One day you’ll remember my passion
One day you’ll have one of your own

I say, “Son
I have watched you fade in
You will watch me fade out
When the grip leaves my hand
I know you won’t let me down

Go and find your way
Leave me in your wake
Always push through the pain
And don’t run away from change
Never settle, make your mark
Hold your head up, follow your heart
Follow your heart
Follow your heart
Follow your heart

We all get lost sometimes, trying to find what we’re looking for
We all get lost sometimes, trying to find what we’re looking for

I have watched you fade in
You will watch me fade out
I have watched you fade in
You will watch me fade out
When the grip leaves my hand
I know you won’t let me down

Go and find your way
Leave me in your wake
Always push through the pain
And don’t run away from change
Never settle, make your mark
Hold your head up, follow your heart
Follow your heart
Follow your heart

When the morning comes and takes me
I promise I have taught you everything that you need
In the night you’ll dream of so many things
But find the ones that bring you life
And you’ll find me
That’s where you’ll find me
That’s where you’ll find me
That’s where you’ll find me
That’s where you’ll find me
That’s where you’ll find me
That’s where you’ll find me
That’s where you’ll find me”
