Hey guys, welcome back to sharing a catholic song. Our next few episodes will express a theme called hope. No matter how many difficulties we have experienced in 2020, in this new year, due to our faith, we are full of hope, because the beauty and good around us have been there.
Today we have Kailey from the United State performing a popular song, named Apple Pie. Listen carefully to this song and you may hear a familiar gospel story in it. Let’s enjoy it.
I told my dad I didn’t love him anymore
And I grabbed all the cash
And I ran and slammed the door
I spent it like a movie star
I spent it right in all bars
I was so hungry, so thirsty
The ladies, they adored me
And the men all wished to be me
They burned with all their jealousy
I had everything that a man like me should buy
And I lived like a King in America with Apple Pie
But my heart was smaller than before
And my fence was tall
To keep out the people who were wanting more
I met a girl
Oh, Katie was her name
She was quite the whirlwind
And she wanted to state my claim
And she said: Oh baby, Oh maybe
You and me could get married
And we’ll settle down and bury all the warrants in our history
But all the party lights went out
And I was left alone
And the amount of money that I had
Was the amount of love I was shown
And I had nothing
I had nothing
So I gathered up all of my pride
And I hitchhiked to a town where my dignity had died
And he was waiting
he was waiting
And he ran and kissed me

Hello everyone, my name is Kailey Fischer and I am sending this little voice message for the podcast from the sunny shores of Florida.
I chose this song because the theme for this podcast was hope, and I just thought that this particular song really I mean with the theme of the prodigal son.
and of just telling it through the son's eyes of leaving home and abandoning his father, of living a life that led to no fulfillment,
then returning home and being welcomed back into the arms of the father. There's nothing more hopeful than that.
so I hope you enjoy this song. thank you Anthony for having me.
