I Will Follow You Into The Dark
Death Cab for Cutie Lyrics


Love of mine
Someday you will die
But I'll be close behind
I'll follow you into the dark

No blinding light
Or tunnels, to gates of white
Just our hands clasped so tight
Waiting for the hint of a spark

If Heaven and Hell decide that they both are satisfied
Illuminate the no's on their vacancy signs
If there's no one beside you when your soul embarks
Then I'll follow you into the dark

In Catholic school, as vicious as Roman rule
I got my knuckles bruised by a lady in black
And I held my tongue as she told me
"Son, fear is the heart of love," so I never went back

And if Heaven and Hell decide that they both are satisfied
Illuminate the no's on their vacancy signs
If there's no one beside you when your soul embarks
Then I'll follow you into the dark

You and me have seen everything to see
From Bangkok to Calgary
And the soles of your shoes are all worn down
The time for sleep is now
But it's nothing to cry about
'Cause we'll hold each other soon
In the blackest of rooms

And if Heaven and Hell decide that they both are satisfied
Illuminate the no's on their vacancy signs
If there's no one beside you when your soul embarks
Then I'll follow you into the dark

Then I'll follow you into the dark

This time of year is more sad than joyful as I remember the anniversaries of my parents' passing -- Mum passed 4 years ago; and Dad 2.

On the drive home this evening, I heard this song on the radio. I almost had to pull over; such emotions welled to the surface.

I miss Mum and Dad as much today as I did they day they passed. What I wouldn't give to hear one of Dad's jokes or taste some of Mum's cooking...

just...

one...

more...

time.

A good friend of mine lost his partner to suicide on June 12 2018..
He was asking for help today so this is what I told him...


Howdy Mister.
I just saw your FB post.
I hope I can help you by telling you a brief summary of my story..


I lost my partner suddenly one night back in Dec 2009...
Heart Attack, Brain injury...


Michael was looking so forward to 2010 so I made them (St Micheal's Hospital) wait until Jan 1 2010 to take him off life support.
I spent his last Christmas (his favourite holiday) with him by his bedside in ICU on the forth floor of SMH...


Eight years together, every holiday, celebration (Michael was a practicing Catholic) Christmas, his Birthday were tied up with memories of him...


The first year is the most difficult
From the second year on its less difficult, new memories are formed with all the annual celebrations going on throughout the year etc


If I told you it gets easier, I would be lying but what I can tell you, is that the worst is over.


My heart is breaking right now because I feel him behind me on my right shoulder just out of sight.
I know logically that when I turn my head to look he's not gonna be there...


Do you think that stops me from looking?

My boyfriend was murdered, and he use to sing this to me. I know he is singing this to me in heaven. I love you Hunter.
