The song “Her Grave” was written about a
father who lost his 12-year-old daughter in a senseless school shooting. He was
angry with God but the song progresses and he insults and accuses God of
cardinal sins and he continuously pointed out flaws in God’s character and even
said God stole life.
It seems as if he was not coming to
terms with the situation at all. The last verse captures the emotions he felt
because of the painful situation. It is a great song that will cause listeners
to feel the father’s pain but they will also enjoy the great musical artwork
that was produced.
It begins with the soft sound
of a guitar before the singer’s hollow but melancholy voice is added, he sings
for a while and then the voice of a female singer blends nicely with his.
Other instruments are added as
the song develops into a memorable tune with lyrics about dancing in the
rainbow. This song is special because you can feel the grief of a father who is
deeply hurt because of his loss, but he is trying to see a bright light at the
end of a tunnel.
You can tell that the song is
coming from a deep place because of the loss of a loved one, and not
understanding how God could allow him to face so much pain.
However, as you listen to the
story that is told by the singers, whose voices blend together very nicely. You will want to keep on listening to the
song over and over again as it is a combination of emotions and beautiful music.
“Her Grave” is a very enjoyable
blues tune, as it climaxes into a more painful ending and the guitar cries as
the emotions that is brought out by the song progresses. This great song will
help you to relax after you have been in a tough situation.
Rhythm Affair has been getting
a number of new fans since they released this song.
