We have a good friend named Trent Dilfer, an NFL quarterback who used to play for the Tampa Bay Bucs and now plays for the Seattle Seahawks. Trent's kids have always loved FFH. We were his son Trevin's favorite group, and "One of These Days" was his favorite song. Last year Trevin was diagnosed with a rare infection that affected his heart and took his life within a matter of about 40 days. He was only five years old. This song came straight from some of the journal pages Trent wrote in the days leading up to Trevin's funeral. Brian, who also dealt with a death in his family last year, wrote this with me, so it's a very special song for us. We wanted to tell this story. --Jeromy
I didn't see this coming It hit like a big surprise Like a thief in the night Stealing away my sunshine Now I'm crawling on my hands and knees Looking for the light
It hit me from the blind side Now I don't know what to do It hit me from the blind side I cry out to You I don't have any answers
Your ways are higher Your love is stronger And through this pain You'll cover me Your grace is greater When there are no answers And through this pain You'll cover me And through this pain You'll cover me
I never thought this could happen I'm living in my own nightmare Are You even there? Hanging on by a thread now I'm begging for the pain to end Will it ever end?
It hit me from the blind side It's getting hard to breathe It hit me from the blind side The hurt, it feels so deep And I don't have any answers
Now each night seems so long I don't think I'm this strong How many times can I ask why? I can't believe this is real
