A song for Mothers Day

Post by RedGlitter »

I'm putting this here in honor of Mothers Day today and the upcoming Fathers Day in June. A lot of us are going to be sad on these days. I accidentally stumbled across this song less than a year ago, never having been a The The fan and it sums up exactly how I feel about my late mother. And everyone I've ever lost. For those of you without your mother today, know that there are others who know your pain. You are not alone.

The The

"Love is Stronger Than Death"







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.
