No sound but the wind - Editors (song lyrics)


No sound but the wind - Editors


We can never go home, son

we no longer have one

I’ll help you carry the load, son

I’ll carry you on my back

 

We walk through the ash

and the charred remains of our country

keep an eye on my back, son

I’ll keep an eye on the road

 

Help me carry the fire

we will keep it allight together

help me to carry the fire

this road can’t go on forever

 

If I say shut your eyes, son

If I say look away

bury your head in my shoulder

think of a birthday

 

the things you put in your head

they won’t stay there forever

I’m trying hard to hide your soul, son

from things it’s not meant to see

 

help me to carry the fire

we will keep it alight together

help me to carry the fire

this road can’t go on forever

 

help me to carry the fire

we will keep it alight together

now help me to carry the fire

this road won’t go on forever

 

no sound but the wind

no sound but the wind

 

If I say shut your eyes

If I say shut your eyes

If I say shut your eyes

If I say shut your eyes

 

Help me to carry the fire

we will keep it alight togerher

help me to carry the fire

this road won’t go on forever

Hi Erwin - I enjoyed your poetry.  I also can resonate with the emotional pain that you have experienced.  However, it helps me to remember that when I feel that way it's always my thoughts and incorrect beliefs that are the source of the pain.  That sort of "snaps" me back into myself.  If we could only allow ourselves to enjoy the wondrous gifts that are truly ours - without trying to justify why we deserve them!!  So much to learn and expecially Unlearn!  Blessings, Susan
