While we have the Sun

>> Wednesday, January 19, 2011

I really listened to this song for the first time last night, and I had a very intense  moment.  It actually broke some dam that was around my heart, and let me experience my sadness.  Here's the part where I lost it:


"If you want to shake whatever separates you from the holiness you want to make your life on earth become, live your life with a compassion you can be proud of. Then let your last breath fade away with dignity and love.





Here are the full lyrics:

"Let's take the time to walk together while we have the sun
You never know when temperamental weather's gonna come
And if you want to face the death you're never that far from
Just take a breath and sing to it when all the day is done

So sorry about all the sorrow in your life you'll know
It's true that all the ones you love will someday have to go
And everytime you say goodbye you'll hear the trumpets blow
A serenade to the soul, all surrounded by the glow

If you feel all broken 'cause i left you there too soon
Just know that it's not up to you to make the flowers wilt or bloom
And if you think you're lonely then just listen for the tune
Of all the stars i left for you in the chest of the moon

If you want to shake whatever separates you from
The holiness you want to make your life on earth become
Live your life with a compassion you can be proud of
Then let your last breath fade away with dignity and love

Let's take the time to walk together while we have the sun
You never know when temperamental weather's gonna come
And if you want to face the death you're never that far from
Just take a breath and sing to it when all the day is done"

To clarify, it's like I was allowed to be sad about the fact that we all have to die...that it's written into the plan.

music really can get in those tight spaces sometimes huh?

the idea of death really is too sad to deal with sometimes. i sometimes feel like i can't even grasp it enough to get to the point where i can deal with it.

the lyrics are really beautiful. :)
