Song Backstory | Wasn’t It Eternity?

2013-May-14
By Martie Hevia | Blue Beach Song™

Wasn’t It Eternity?” is a song I wrote quite some time ago after the end of my first truly significant adult relationship that, like all truly meaningful relationships, I hoped would last forever.

No doubt, at least once in your life, you have found yourself in one of those relationships where you promise each other, and truly believe, that this relationship will last forever. Sometimes you even walk down the aisle and say those words that promise eternity, that promise a happy ending, but in the end you come to find that even happy endings are still endings.

As I’ve grown older, I have come to realize that so much of a relationship working out is timing. Sometimes you meet the right person at the wrong time. It happens.

The good thing is that there isn’t just one right person for each of us, as fairy tales are wont to tell us, there are many, and if you have the patience to wait, you will meet him or her. (Another one of those things you learn with time.)

Thanks for listening and I hope you enjoy the song. -Martie


Lyrics | Wasn’t It Eternity? by Martie Hevia



For best sound, use headphones to listen to Wasn’t It Eternity?.


Do you remember the words?
Do you remember the promises?
Do you remember your love for me?
Do you remember our destiny?
Wasn’t it eternity?
Wasn’t it eternity?
Wasn’t it eternity?
~
Listen to the falling rain.
Washing over this heart’s pain.
Listen to how a soul cries out.
Did you forget our destiny?
Wasn’t it eternity?
Wasn’t it eternity?
Wasn’t it eternity?
~
Isn’t it funny how time flies by us?
Isn’t it funny how our faint good-byes
Can echo and haunt you on lonely nights
Wondering what happened to our destiny.
Wasn’t it eternity?
Wasn’t it eternity?
Wasn’t it eternity?
~
Weren’t we always going to be best friends?
Facing new adventures ’round every bend?
Tell me what happened and why it all ends.
Tell me again about our destiny.
Wasn’t it eternity?
Wasn’t it eternity?
Wasn’t it?
