This week’s Tuned In Tuesday isn’t the newest of songs, but it is one of my favourite songs. “Heaven’s Gonna Wait” by Hedley is one of the most beautifully written songs I’ve had the pleasure of listening to. Off of their last album, ‘Storms’, you can find both the original version, as well as the acoustic version.
The song, to me, is a message to those who feel like their life is no longer worth living. That they should give up because they don’t think it will get any better. This song is a message to prove them wrong. With lyrics like “it’s not the right thing baby, but the right thing suits so few, let’s take the other road baby cause it looks so good on you, so hold on tight, it’s gonna be a wild, wild ride, and tonight, you won’t need your wings to fly, cause angels got a lot to lose” Hedley is trying to say that life is worth living, and even though it can be hard, you should push through because you never know what can come next.
