SONG OF THE DAY: Suitcases by Dara Maclean

This is head boppin’ music.  You know, a fun casual song that makes your head bop as you listen to it.  Dara Maclean’s voice is deep and earthy so that I am enticed to listen closely for the meaning of her songs.  Suitcases really calls us to let go of  our load and to not be afraid.  It’s easy to ignore most of our fears until something comes along to tosh us out of our comfort zone.  That’s what Dara calls running with suitcases.  here’s what the song says:

How can you move when they’re weighing you down
What can you do when you’re tied to the ground, yeah
You carry your burdens, heavy like gravity
Just let them go now, there’s freedom in release

You can’t run when you’re holding suitcases
It’s a new day throw away your mistakes and open up your heart
Lay down your guard, you don’t have to be afraid

Just breathe, your load can be lifted
There’s a better way when you know you’re forgiven
Open up your heart, lay down your guard
You don’t have to be afraid

Relax, lt go of your load and enjoy this great song.
