Judah and the Lion members Judah Akers and Brian Macdonald love creating music that makes their listeners feel something. After “Take a Walk” was released, Judah and the Lion explained, “It feels like the right time for us to reclaim some of the joy that can be hard to come by these days. We don’t want to be positive just for the sake of being positive, we’ve seen our fair share of pain, and we hope that comes across in our music and lyrics too. ‘Take a Walk’ represents both sides: pure fun and excitement alongside the reality of life being really hard.”

Let’s go take a walk downtown

And act like we’re the heroes that

We dreamed we’d be when we were young

We can be the giants in the streets we learn to drive in

And we’ll ride away into the sun

From “Take a Walk” By Judah and the Lion

“Talk a Walk” expresses the beauty of chasing our ambitions. We can and should pursue our aspirations, knowing that it is never too late to dream big. As we seek to achieve those dreams, we know that those around us will walk alongside us, supporting us every step of the way. The impact of our actions can have a huge impact on the lives of those around us!

And one day we’ll be happy again

And we’ll be innocent

Just like when we were kids

One day we’ll be happy again

And we’ll be innocent

Just like when we were kids

From “Take a Walk” by Judah and the Lion

This song acknowledges that pain and heartache do exist, but there is hope on the horizon. Even when moments seem unbearable sometimes, we can look toward the future with great anticipation. May we be reminded of the sweet blessings that God has given us and find peace and rest in His beautiful promises.
