Time Heals All by Emily Ehler

Oh I can’t believe it
Why did you have to leave me
My heart it feels like breaking
Every breath I’m taking

Time heals all they say to my face
But I know time will not replace
The times I saw you through
The things that we went through
Time heals all
But it won’t fix you

Sitting on the bathroom tile
All these photos make me smile
Feels like I just can’t replace
All the joy you brought to my days

Time heals all they say to my face
But I know time will not replace
The times I saw you through
The things that we went through
Time heals all
But it won’t fix you

I have always loved the sound of organ music at church and remember the good feeling of singing hymns at services during my childhood. This song has a deliberately hymn-like accompaniment whose solemn mood is paired with words about a broken relationship—something you’d never find in a church hymnal. It’s the ironic juxtaposition of text and melody that gives this song its character. I hope you enjoy it.
