Adam Young explaining his new song "You're not alone"

andywestdaydreams:

"You rescued me and I believe that God is Love and He is all I need from this day forth to all eternity"

The song was inspired by a news report that I read online about a Sudanese woman who was going to jail for being a Christian. She was sentenced to death by hanging and I remember reading that and thinking ‘how hopeless must that feel?’ I truly have no idea what that would feel like.

Since then she has been rescued and brought back to the States, thankfully, but God used that story in my life to touch my heart and say For those who chose to follow Jesus and honor him wholeheartedly, He’s there with you and, no matter how dark the day may seem, you are not alone and God knows exactly what you’re going through. 

That was really the sentiment of this song I think that something everybody could relate to. Ultimately the message of this song is, despite all odds, there is hope and that hope is Jesus Christ.

"I’m from the middle of nowhere in Minnesota you see, so the ocean has always been a curiously dreamy, ethereal, almost romantic thing to me. Over the years I spent a great deal of time with my eyes closed, imagining myself having the most wonderful adventures by the seaside. Doing things one can only do in dusk and glow and midsummer dreams, as if the back of my closed eyelids were a silver screen and I was a sentimental projectionist with hundreds of fanciful reels at hand, all ready to roll. Thus is the reasoning behind the title."
