I Grieve….?

January 26, 2009

Was introduced to this Peter Gabriel song (OST City of Angels) by my aunt – although it just feels so much more natural to call her Cuckoo Khala, her name as far as everyone in the family is concerned. The movie, by the way, has the dual quality of being wonderful AND featuring one of the best power ballads I’ve ever heard – Iris by Goo Goo Dolls.

But this is about the education, not the educator.

Hadn’t heard Peter Gabriel before this (excuse the ignorance, I AM under constant education) and well,I dunno what, but this stuck. Initially I just downloaded it for one lyric (did I dream…) but then fell in love with the second half of the song in particular. It’s not a headbanging song but I HAVE been rocking to this while driving home on more than one occasion! I don’t grieve for anyone but I love the way this song segues into positivity…and maybe it’s just very easy to relate to this…in any case,enjoy.

it was only one hour ago
it was all so different then
there’s nothing yet has really sunk in
looks like it always did
this flesh and bone
it’s just the way that you would tied in
now there’s no-one home

i grieve for you
you leave me
‘so hard to move on
still loving what’s gone
they say life carries on
carries on and on and on and on

the news that truly shocks is the empty empty page
while the final rattle rocks its empty empty cage
and i can’t handle this

i grieve for you
you leave me
let it out and move on
missing what’s gone
they say life carries on
they say life carries on and on and on

life carries on
in the people i meet
in everyone that’s out on the street
in all the dogs and cats
in the flies and rats
in the rot and the rust
in the ashes and the dust
life carries on and on and on and on
life carries on and on and on

it’s just the car that we ride in
a home we reside in
the face that we hide in
the way we are tied in
and life carries on and on and on and on
life carries on and on and on

did I dream this belief?
or did i believe this dream?
now i can find relief
i grieve
