“Relate” by For KING & COUNTRY

“Relate” is an empathetic song, with the vocalist(s) making a conscientious effort to “relate” to the audience. And the meeting point between the two parties, i.e. us and the singer, rests on the idea that we all know how it feels to be disappointed, downtrodden or what have you. 

You can view the lyrics, alternate interprations and sheet music for for KING & COUNTRY's Relate at Lyrics.org.

And this is not only due to external factors but also sometimes our own “mistakes” and shortcomings.

But in the midst of realizing such, the vocalist comes to two conclusions. One is that “we’re on to better days”, i.e. the future being more pleasant than the past. So in that regard, we can say that this is actually a song of optimism. 

And secondly, being that this is a Christian effort, the vocalist is also entreating “the grace of God” to help us all “relate” to each other better. Or viewed alternatively, acknowledging that we all have struggles will help foster friendship between mankind. 

Indeed reading a bit in between the lines, what it appears For King & Country is saying is that we’re all equal in our imperfections and the hardships we have or had to face.
