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.

To my best friend.
I finished that song you started.
I cleaned your braclets like you asked.
I took your hoodie I hope you don't mind...

I miss you...
I love you...
I'll see you when I get there.
Sleep well ❤

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.

Daniel Anders

He's absolutely singing this from heaven. He's just waiting on that destiny fueled duet when you make it there on your own time. Don't rush, take your time to practice before that final reunion. I wish you well and I wish well on your heart.
