There’s A Love That Transcends All That We’ve Known Of Ourselves…

Posted on February 17th, 2006

… and I’ll wait for it to come.

Copeland – Coffee.

Tonight, Curtis, Craig, Laura, and I went to the Docks to see Copeland!! Craig and I got a ride to Toronto from Kat (thanks, KFro!!) early in the afternoon and spent the day watching the Canadian women’s hockey team handily beat Finland. We headed to our meeting place and were off to the Docks at around 6:15.

It’s the first time that I ever went to the Docks, and I must say that the venue is pretty sweet. The room is fairly small, and it has a cool feeling to it. (I’m super excited to go see Death Cab and Franz Ferdinand in April there!)

There were two bands that were on before Copeland… one had songs that all sounded the same, and a really stupid name: The Suicide Pact or something. The next band, Cartel, had a pretty good showing in the crowd, so that got people really excited. And aggressive. But, we managed to use all of the pushing and shoving to get to the second row!

I was in a bit of a peculiar position; behind me were Curtis and Laura, to my left was Craig, to my right was some random dude that didn’t seem to know any of the bands and just stood there motionlessly, and in front of me was some other random person against whose butt I was firmly pressed. Egad!

Copeland started off with “You Love to Sing”, followed by “Don’t Slow Down” and “Pin Your Wings.” I forget the order of the next few songs, but there was “When Paula Speaks”, “Coffee”, “Hold Nothing Back”, and “Sleep.” It was after “Coffee”, however, that one of the amps blew. They tried to fix it, but to no avail. So they did another song using the piano: “Brightest.” What a beautiful song!!! Unfortunately, it proved to be their last song as they couldn’t get a replacement amp to work and they left the crowd chanting “COPELAND!! COPELAND!!” high and dry.

So I must admit that I was feeling a bit disappointed.. the show was really amazing (especially since the crowd was so mellow), but I felt like we were robbed of a few more songs. One of the ones that I have been dying to hear live is “You Have My Attention”, and they didn’t play it πŸ™ What was really cool, though, is that we ran into the drummer after their performance and talked to him for a bit. We got a picture with him, too! πŸ˜€ But he also said that “You Have My Attention” was on the setlist. Which killed me.

Oh well. Some things in life aren’t meant to work out. I’m glad that, for me, it was a concert instead of.. I dunno.. courses at school or something that could really affect me. But I suppose that there are plenty of other things that have not worked out for me: Software Engineering (but because I didn’t like it there, stuff with the ESA, relationships…

But one thing that I’m learning to do is accepting what I have. I’ll take what I can get and I should be so thankful that I have that much. I’ve gone on and on about all of the things that I have (and often don’t appreciate), and I won’t repeat them. God has been so good to me and, truly, His love trancends all that I know of myself.

And with Valentine’s Day in recent memory, I have to admit that I’m eager to live the day where I find my own love that transcends all that I know. But I’ll wait patiently for it to come.

I love Copeland.

    Justin, you’re such a romantic. I told you that Copeland put on a killer live show.

    If I’m a romantic then, I.. don’t even have a word for what you are πŸ˜‰

    Copeland did put on an amazing show, but it was not as amazing as what they did at the Sony Connect Sessions. Granted, it was not an acoustic set but, they were really tight on that recording. I was a little let down by how they did “Coffee” last night. But, hey, ya win some ya lose some, right?
