Satellite - Ring The Bells

Sometimes there are songs that hit you like a ton of bricks. Saturday night I heard one of those songs and I wanted to share it. I went to the CD release show for Satellite at Hotel Cafe in Hollywood. I had never heard of this band before but some of my friends are buddies with these guys so we all went out for a night on the town. When the title track of their EP played I almost cried listening to it. It was written after the divorce of one of their closest friends after 10 years. He also wrote a beautiful song for his wife of 6 years during one of their worst years that I had to share as well.

"Well ring the bells that lead you home
Cause the only truth I've ever known
Is that nothing ever hurts us more than love
So circle up your best friends
And we'll celebrate the way it ends
At least we live tonight
At least we live tonight"

Life can hit us hard. Actually life will hit us hard. We all go through rough times and times of loss and tragedy and having best friends to surround you during those times is something I've been incredibly blessed with. So I'm sharing this song for my best friends, you all know who you are. I love you.

If you want to check out this band go to their website here.

Sitting at work. Trying not to cry. Both of these songs are so honest and beautiful. You are right in saying that life will hit us hard. You are also right in saying that our friends and family are to be valued above all else as a blessing in those times when life hits below the belt. Thanks for sharing.
