You're Made For Revival

Four-time GRAMMY Nominee Matthew West recently released the lyric video for "The Beautiful Things We Miss," off his latest, All In. Written as a reflection of the symmetry of West's own life and career, the lyric video presses pause on life’s most precious moments for West – being a husband and dad, and is composed of a montage of personal photos of West and his wife Emily, along with their two daughters, Lulu and Delaney.

"The idea for this song came while I was on a hike in the Colorado mountains," says West. "At one point I stopped for a break, looked up and realized I had missed some of the most breathtaking scenery around me. I pulled out my phone and typed the words 'The Beautiful Things We Miss.' That’s what led me to write this song that cuts straight to the core of my biggest struggle in life - being a dad who stays connected and invested in the lives of my daughters, and being the kind of husband that my wife needs me to be. Do I care more about my career than my family? What would they say about me if I asked them that question? I hope this song can remind us all what really matters before it passes us by."

The lyric video is already resonating with families in a big way, with an outpour of support from The National Fatherhood Initiative, Dad Tired and Loving It, Dad of Divas, and more. Additionally, West along with his father, Pastor Joe West, will be co-hosting Keep The Faith as a special tribute to Father's Day this Sunday.

This Father's Day Weekend, West will be returning to the legendary circle at Nashville's Grand Ole Opry stage on Saturday, Jun. 16. The evening will also feature performances from Love and Theft, Riders In The Sky and more.


G Bm Em C

[Verse 1]
G
She puts on her makeup
         Bm                                      Em
And the last dress she remembers that turned his head
                             Am         C
That time he said, "You look beautiful"
    G
At six, the front door opens
          Bm
And he doesn't even notice
            Em
Kisses her cheek
                             C
"Baby, when do we eat? I'm starving"

[Pre-Chorus]
D   Am
Oh, the beautiful things we miss...

[Chorus]
G
I don't wanna miss it
Bm
I don't wanna look back someday and find
Em
Everything that really mattered
C
Was right in front of me this whole time
G
Open up my eyes, Lord
Bm                               Em
Keep me in the moment just like this
                                C
Before the beautiful things we love
                                G
Become the beautiful things we miss

[Verse 2]
     G
She hides out in her headphones
 Bm
Texting on her cell phone
         Em                  C
Daddy's girl built a world behind her bedroom door
               G
While he was working hard and providing
        Bm
Bigger houses still get divided
         Em                                   C
Just yesterday she was on his shoulders but today she's older
Why do we get older?

[Pre-Chorus]
D  Am             C
Oh, the beautiful things we miss...

[Chorus]
G
I don't wanna miss it
Bm
I don't wanna look back someday and find
Em
Everything that really mattered
C
Was right in front of me this whole time
G
Open up my eyes, Lord
Bm                               Em
Keep me in the moment just like this
                                C
Before the beautiful things we love
                                G
Become the beautiful things we miss

[Bridge]
G
We don't get to rewind
                 Bm           Em
There's no such thing as next time
 C
Help me remember, help me remember
                    G
We don't get this back
                                       Bm
They were right when they said "don't blink"
It all goes faster than you think
Em
Lord, help me remember
C
The beautiful things we miss

[Chorus]
G
I don't wanna miss it
Bm
I don't wanna look back someday and find
Em
Everything that really mattered
C
Was right in front of me this whole time
G
Open up my eyes, Lord
Bm                               Em
Keep me in the moment just like this
                                C
Before the beautiful things we love
                                G
Become the beautiful things we miss

[Outro]
G
Open up my eyes, Lord
Bm
Open up my eyes, Lord
Em
I don't want to miss it
    C
No, I don't want to miss it
G
Open up my eyes, Lord
Bm
Open up my eyes, Lord
Em                             C
Before the beautiful things I love
Become the beautiful things I miss
