This is a snippet of a song by The Cure called “From the Edge of the Deep Green Sea” – as brooding, turbulent and intense of a song as you’ll hear.
And these are my favorite lines from it – because there have been times in my life where I found myself in that turbulent place and tried to pretend it away.
Never never never never never let me go she says
Hold me like this for a hundred thousand million days
But suddenly she slows
And looks down at my breaking face
Why do you cry? what did I say?
But it’s just rain I smile
Brushing my tears away
I wish I could just stop
I know another moment will break my heart
Too many tears
Too many times
Too many years I’ve cried over you

(PS: This song came in front of me today and I was reminded of someone I miss – so this one’s for them, wherever they may be.)
