The Scientist…

The year was 2002. BTL was launched and we had no idea, no customers, no content, and no fear. We had each other – Miss and me. I can remember the day when Miss called me into the office to talk. She wasn’t worried about BTL and whether or not we were gonna make a go of it. She couldn’t wait for me to hear this song written collaboratively by Guy Berryman, Jonny Buckland, Will Champion, and Chris Martin. She was filled with belief and she knew this song was gonna speak to me. She was right…

This morning, as Amber and I talked away over the best massage ever, the same track came on her playlist. My mind wandered back to the start. Running in circles. Nobody said it was easy. It’s such a shame for us to part. Nobody said it was easy. No one ever said it would be this hard. Oh, take me back to the start. My heart expanded as I took in this track from way back. The music moved me and it was good.

It’s hard for me to believe it’s been fifteen years since this song was recorded and this experiment, BTL began. Tonight, Miss and I enjoyed another evening together and as I came in the house to check on next weeks schedule, this same track was playing on my Spotify playlist as if by magic. This always takes me back to the beginning and makes me sad and kinda overjoyed at the same time. The track is titled The Scientist and it’s always gonna take me back to the start. I hope you move this weekend. And, I hope you’re moved.
