Hope There's Someone
by Antony and the Johnsons

Hope there's someone
Who'll take care of me
When I die, will I go

Hope there's someone
Who'll set my heart free
Nice to hold, when I'm tired

There's a ghost on the horizon
When I, go to bed
How can I fall asleep at night
How will I rest my head

Oh I'm scared of the middle place
Between light and nowhere
I don't want to be the one
Left in there, left in there

There's a man on the horizon
Wish that I'd go to bed
If I fall to his feet tonight
Will allow, rest my head

So here's hoping I will not drown
Or paralyze in light
And Godsend I don't want to go
To the seal's watershed

Hope there's someone
Who'll take care of me
When I die, will I go

Hope there's someone
Who'll set my heart free
Nice to hold, when I'm tired

We played this at me daughters funeral. It fills me with both sorrow and Beauty. Love Jimmy


The song reminds me of my uncles passing 19yrs ago. I couldn't tell you why there's such a strong personal connection between this song and his end of life/passing. The poor man didn't truly fulfill half his life but the life he lived was definitely lived....
He left nothing but a huge void in our lives. Ah well. Dats life.

@Kitten And what if he wasn't even being just mean and insensitive? What if he was saying that keeping some things private would be sacred in a way, because, then, those things wouldn't be an occasion for people to act like this, hatefully, just helping all the hate spread... ?

@Mikaelo hi mate - everyone expresses pain and grief in different ways. For some it's better to stick to their family, for some it's better to talk to friends, for others they make music, for Jimmy here he just wanted to let people know that this song that obviously has emotional significance to so many here listening to it was a part of a significant emotional moment for him and he wanted to express that in this forum. Maybe he even hopes one day the message might reach Anohni so she'll know how much it meant to him. If this isn't your natural instinct on how to respond to grief or pain that makes sense - but there's nothing wrong with him choosing to take that path for himself. You keep safe and well now 👍


Kitten Are you well in the head ?


Sorry man, that’s terrible, sorry for your loss, touching song 😔
