Love Is Stronger Than Death

Post by RedGlitter »

I'm putting this here for a friend of mine. She'll know who she is.

I've had this on my Limewire for a month and just now listened to it.

It's a song by the band The The and it's called "Love Is Stronger Than Death."

I wanted you to hear how it goes. I apologize for having to put the Better Than Ezra video here but The The's version was nowhere to be found. The The does a far better and more beautiful job with it, I think and is worth hearing.



Lovelovelove

Lovelovelove

Me & my friend were walking

In the cold light of mourning.

Tears may blind the eyes but the soul is not deceived

In this world even winter aint what it seems.

Here come the blue skies here comes springtime.

When the rivers run high & the tears run dry.

When everything that dies.

Shall rise.

Lovelovelove is stronger than death.

Lovelovelove is stronger than death.

In our lives we hunger for those we cannot touch.

All the thoughts unuttered & all the feelings unexpressed

Play upon our hearts like the mist upon our breath.

But, awoken by grief, our spirits speak

How could you believe that the life within the seed

That grew arms that reached

And a heart that beat.

And lips that smiled

And eyes that cried.

Could ever die?

Here come the blue skies here comes springtime.

When the rivers run high & the tears run dry.

When everything that dies.

Shall rise.




Lovelovelove is stronger than death.

Lovelovelove is stronger than death.

Shall rise. shall rise.

Shall rise. shall rise.

I'm glad to read this. I have been feeling my grief for the ones I have lost and have a friend in need of some wisdom, too. Thank you.
