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

7 years ago, i lost my boyfriend, and even though it was long distance, i still loved him alot.. and i thought because he had abusive parents.. i thought he offed himself honestly and.. i miss him deeply, i heard this song and... it fit perfectly.. anytime i miss him i just.. listen to this song and it helps me cope, because i always told him id be by his side.. wherever you are, i miss you, i wish you weren't gone, you had such an impact on my life and.. i wont forget you.

tiny add on here: He was... he had such a bright hope in him, he wanted to be a game designer someday and well, he was also known by his friends as a good pixel artist and an even greater person, and although me and his friends dont talk anymore, i.. i hope they atleast remember him, because they don't really remember me anymore, but i made a sort of vow to keep his name alive, make him always remembered.

I appreciate the kind words everyone.. i was just expecting it to be lost in the sea of comments.. so.. thank you..

Update: i have now graduated... i made it Dusk.. i hope you're proud of me..

Been 7 years, around this time today he.. he left... 9-18-15.

@Justin that's a lot of wasted words (all of which i've either heard before or thought of myself at least a thousand times) all to add up to the ultimate stupid asshole advice: "lol just get over it!!!!!!!"

I'm 26. This started when I was 7. stop for a single second, pull yourself out of your little savior-complexed ass and think about that. Nearly 20 years of constant awareness of your mortality. for nearly 20 years, you go to bed every single night and think "Another day is gone that I will never get back. I'm another day closer now."
And just try to imagine nothingness. Can you? Can you really? Can you imagine not existing? Everything just being gone, forever, and none of it mattered?
Can you honestly say it doesn't scare you at all?

I've been to therapy. I've been to church. I've meditated. I've worked around dead and dying things. I've done just about everything that I've ever heard anyone say helped them "come to terms" with morality, and it's all been bullshit.

But sure, Genius Stranger On The Internet. I'll just Get Over It because you said so.

Get some help with that. It’s no way to live.

What’s the point of life if you’re constantly consumed with the thought that you’re gonna die one day?

We all die. It’s unavoidable. It’s also nothing to be afraid of.

Most people that grow old are far more accepting of that fact. Some even long for the release.

I’d like to believe that when I’m old as dirt and am on my way out I won’t be afraid. I’ll be ready to go. I’ll have lived my life, raised my children and accomplished what I wanted. What more could a person desire?

I’ve always thought death will be a lot like it was before I was born. The absence of everything. No consciousness, no feelings, no thoughts, nothing. You wouldn’t even be aware of it. It’s really nothing to be scared of. You won’t have the ability to be afraid of it. So why let it control your life?

I assume you’re young. Deal with your fear now so you can enjoy what time you have left.

I’d bet if you do you’ll be ready and willing to go when your time comes.

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
Catholic school, as vicious as Roman rule
I got my knuckles bruised by a lady in black
I held my tongue as she told me, son
Fear is the heart of love, so I never went back
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
The soles of your shoes are all worn down
The time for sleep is now
It's nothing to cry about
Cause we'll hold each other soon
The blackest of rooms
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
I'll follow you into the dark

Nick Green

sorry 4 ur loss❤❤❤❤

Dan Barton

It doesn't get any easy sorry. Same story but from 2016. Every day is just as hard as the one before it. People say the memories of what you lost will be happy eventually. Still waiting for that 6 years later.

Andrew casson

My condolences, my friend hand i there

Chad Dobish

Wow. Deep brother. RIP

Angel Johnson

I'm so so so sorry for your loss. Watched my husband die in 2007, he was 33, I was 31. It never gets easy, you just find some way to carry on. There's someone here on earth who loves and needs you, just know that. Here for support 🙌

Just a kid who likes aardvarks

im going through something similar right now. my boyfriend (long distance and until he dies tomorrow) has and has had for a while now, cancer. he had surgery to remove the tumor a couple of months ago but it failed and it grew back twice as big 3 times as fast and the doctors said there is nothing they can do about it so he decided to have them, according to google the correct way to say it is, humanely kill him. and we are spending the rest of the night together before we say our final goodbyes. i guess what im trying to say is im glad im not alone and you arent either. may he rest in peace and i hope you are doing much better now.

rasuI david

That's Soo sad I hope your doing ok now..
