I just found this video of “I Know It Hurts” by Paul Cardall & Tyler Glenn. As my Songs for the Shadows playlist may have tipped you off, Tyler Glenn is one of my favorite artists, with or without the band Neon Trees. I’m actually a little surprised I didn’t find this song sooner. It is part of a larger project that I’m still checking out, but I couldn’t wait to post about this song. Religion comes up a lot in the lyrics Tyler Glenn sings, particularly feeling disconnected from religion or a changing relationship with faith. These lyrics resonate with me. “But the symbols were not ours.” really hit me in this song. I can find so much feeling in many religions’ symbols, but very few of those symbols feel like they are mine. I hope y’all enjoy the song and can find some inspiration in it.
The Symbols Were Not Ours
