Morningtime blues

I don’t know why. It just is.

Anyway the tuned-to-my-mental-state-iPod served this up:

The River, by Breed 77 from the album Cultura

In the morning I am empty
Of everything I used to be
I will write away my feelings
So no one would ever read
If I had all of the answers
I could poor salt on my wounds
I could fill this room with sorrow
So no one would ever see

I want to wake up and drink from your river
I want to reach out and tear down the sky
To know I’m alive
I want to learn how to feel without bleeding
I want to learn how to live by your side
You’re no longer mine

And why
We gotta swim against the tide to each other
Find the other side of the river
And why

If I offered you a picture
And the paint is yet to dry
Could you live with just a whisper?
A flower is meant to die
If I had all of the answers
I could poor salt on my wounds
I could fill this room with sorrow
So no one would ever see

I want to wake up and drink from your river
I want to reach out and tear down the sky
To know I’m alive, yeah
I want to learn how to feel without bleeding
I want to learn how to live by your side
To know that you’re mine

And why
We gotta swim against the tide to each other
Find the other side of the river
And why
We gotta swim against the tide to each other
Find the other side of the river

I want to wake up and drink from your river
I want to reach out and tear down the sky
To know I’m alive, yeah
I want to learn how to feel without bleeding
I want to learn how to live by your side
You’ll never be mine

Why
We gotta swim against the tide to each other
Find the other side of the river
And why
We gotta swim against the tide to each other
Find the other side of the river

Goodnight

    How strange it is when you stumble accross a song which says everything you are feeling.
    Thank you for this.
    It has helped me get even more maudlin & tearful about recent heartbreak, which is just exactly what I need as part of the whole ‘recovery’ process :o)

    Yes! Thank you for asking. Turned out the guy who broke my heart also had the glue to mend it again… ;o)
