It Won’t Be Like This For Long — This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is It Won't Be Like This for Long by Darius Rucker. This has been a personal favorite since he released it in 2008.

This Friday’s song is It Won’t Be Like This for Long by Darius Rucker. This song was released in November 2008. I had moved to the Florida Keys the year before so that my son Ryan and I could be together full time. We were living in a little two-bedroom “conch house” that we called “The Egg” because it was painted in bright Easter egg colors.

It Won't Be Like This For Long

I read Ryan a bedtime story every night. There were a lot of nights that I would listen to this song after he fell asleep. For those of you that know some of our backstory, you will understand why these lyrics grabbed my heart then and still do today

He lays down there beside her

Till her eyes are finally closed

And just watching her it breaks his heart

Cause he already knows

It wont be like this for long

One day soon that little girl is gonna be

All grown up and gone

Yeah this phase is gonna fly by

He’s trying to hold on

It won’t be like this for long

It won’t be like this for long

Teresa and I got to see Rucker perform live in West Palm Beach a few years back. I think we were both a little “teared-up” when he did this one.

Hope you enjoy!
