Life is so… whatever.

The Most Beautiful Part About This Is

with 10 comments

I swear I’ll stop fangirling about Archie here on my blog after this. (Ok, I probably won’t, but whatever, LOL. I’ve at least refrained from posting every single video I’ve seen of him because that would just fill up my blog too much, haha.)

Anyways. I don’t think many people have heard this song, but this is just… THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SONG EVER. I swear.

The song was written by Merrick Christensen and sung by David Archuleta for Christensen’s album Fear VS Faith (which also contains another song performed by Archie, Angels in the Alleyway. Another beautiful song.), released just this May (I think. I have no idea when this was recorded, though.). The lyrics… just.. they make me weep! And David’s voice is so perfect for this song. Wah. SO BEAUTIFUL. I can just listen to this song forever.

And I’m posting the lyrics even though it’s on the video just so I can point out all my favorite lines.

The Most Beautiful Part About This Is

I try to understand
The things you’re dealing with
My heart goes out to you, my friend
Somehow you’ve struck this out
Some would call it tragedy
But you know it’s a blessing

Just look how you’ve grown, my sweetest friend
May angels lift you till the end
She said look to the sky, not the ocean
When all seems lost and forever bleak
That’s the time you you must fall to your knees

Here I know through your faith
Christ can heal all
But till that day we must have faith

The words to me will never change
Just look how you’ve grown, my sweetest friend
May angels lift you till the end
She said look to the sky, not the ocean
When all seems lost and forever bleak
That’s the time you you must fall to your knees

And by His grace
You’ll see His face
On that day, you shall rejoice
Through His mercy, you’ll hear his voice
Rise and walk, my son
Let your burden be gone

Just look how you’ve grown, my sweetest friend
May angels lift you till the end
She said look to the sky, not the ocean
When all seems lost and forever bleak
That’s the time you you must fall to your knees

LOL, I’d totally make the whole song bold if only it didn’t defeat the purpose.

Ok, I know a lot of people have been complaining about how all Archie sings are ballads, but he picks the most beautiful songs (Angels, Another Day In Paradise, Smoky Mountain Memories, And So It Goes… ok I know he didn’t pick that last one but I loved that performance!), so if he comes out with a album full of songs like this, I’d love it. I’d also love it if he gets some sort of OneRepublic vibe in some of his songs (I absolutely loved that Apologize performance!), and some John Mayer vibe too like he’s been saying. Heck, I’d buy his album even if he gets forced by the Idol people to do bubblegum pop, but not before weeping and wailing about the unfairness of that, LOL.

  1. He also has a video where he sang Mary, did you know. When my sister saw it, she converted it into an mp3 file for me right away because she knows I love that song. :lol:

  3. Glad you loved these songs, “the most beautiful songs” you have ever heard.
    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE – support the great lyric/music writer of
    “the Most Beautifiul Part About This Is” and “Angels in the Alleyway” Me’rrick Christensen buy PURCHASING them from iTunes or Amazon.com even if you already have them on MP3 by copying off of Youtube — the latter does NOT support the song writer or the singer.
    Remember the music execs only care for who can SELL music, not who is most popular on YouTube.

  10. I heard the song just a couple of days ago.Archuleta has a great vocal, one of my favorites (and I’m a guy…… I’m not gay either!!!) just thought I’d throw that out there. God is going to do some great things with David. Lets not forget to Give Merrick credit, more so than David. They were great together.
    God bless them both.
