The Instant Replay

“We all make mistakes sometimes / We all fail but we stand tonight / Look past, learn, and move on / We’re all here, you’re not the only one.” Lyrics from the song “Audrey, Start the Revolution!” by, the now disbanded alternative rock band, Anberlin. I started listening to Anberlin and heard this song for the first time during my early college days. These particular lyrics encapsulated something that I always found comforting (and still do)– someone, somewhere, has gone through or currently is going through the same thing as me; someone, somewhere goofed up, embarrassed themselves, and/or all out screwed up or made a mistake just like me. Hearing these lyrics, especially during my college days, reminded me that I wasn’t alone in my goof ups and “failures” (heaven knows I had many during that time).
