The Rabbitroom featured Any Other Way as their song of the week.
I’ve featured it before; it deserves to be featured again.
A song about trust, marriage and how promise can see the marriage grow stronger when trust has been compromised.
At the page link you can hear Phillip’s recording of the song (and see a discount code for the album from which it comes).
In this video her husband Andy provides his rendition after providing some of the background to the song’s creation.
If I could have found an embeddable version by Phillips I would have included it here as well.

The lyrics:
Do you remember that Monday when
The world fell out beneath our feet
Both surprised that we had been
So close to losing everything
Putting one foot in front of the other
felt like such a long, hard step to take
We thought about moving and starting again
But it was something we could never outrun so we just stayed
I wouldn’t have it any other way
I wouldn’t have it any other way

Gaining back the trust we lost
Was harder than just losing it
But if we wanted change at all
The pain was a prerequisite
So little by little, a piece at a time
We were putting back together what was left of a broken life
It wasn’t quick, it wasn’t easy
But that kind of change isn’t one that happens overnight
I wouldn’t have it any other way
I wouldn’t have it any other way

When we first met, love was a feeling
But making it last, that’s a decision
A good decision

When we watch the kids run through the yard
Sometimes I just can’t help but think
That every bit of what it cost
Was worth it for this family
‘cause I wouldn’t have it any other way
I wouldn’t have it any other way
I wouldn’t have it any other way
