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

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

* just to clarify - I’m certainly NOT saying that your problems ARE actually literally bigger and worse than everyone’s - like if measured on a type of social statistical spectrum where everyone’s “issues” and problems and traumas were all put on a big long spectrum-scale and measured against each other’s obviously it would clearly show some people suffered indeed wayyyyy worse fates and lives than others! I’m not trying to compare a first world country with a third world one! That’s not the point I was trying to make. I’m just saying that internally - not on some measurable spectrum/scale - that your problems are bigger, than the person next you for example, no matter what they are suffering - because they are YOURS and YOU are having to deal with them. So never ever neglect or abandon or refuse to acknowledge your feelings and emotions because someone cruelly says “your problems are nothing in comparison to dadadada” ....... (I’m not naming an possible example so as to try not offend someone but there is MANY I can think of!)

But at the same time sometimes it’s actually a good tool/strategy to look at people who are on the spectrum of suffering - are clearly so much worse off than yourself ... sometimes there is someone who can never change something utterly shocking that happened to them - if they were left with life long not fixable injuries or something as a generalised example - yet after you have a good think about it/ you realise at least your issue/s are totally “fixable” and you might actually come out the other side even stronger (something that has by the grace of my LORD GOD happened to me- but only after many, many, many, many years of suffering and emotional torture every single day and it became almost like an obsession and I almost enjoyed feeling so incredibly sad about something I was able to name instead of feeling so sad and not being able to name it and know why- I endured shocking child abuse and I never really processed it until my ex partner died in 2010 and all my emotions from everything from my entire lifetime cane flooding back and my suffering was bigger than anyone else’s because it was as mine- INTERNALLY- but when compared with someone who had endured a shocking accident or event that has meant they will live disfigured or having operations for the rest of their lives or they are can no longer see or hear or remember who they even are or have severe brain injury rendering them unable to even move a muscle my problems seem to just disappear and become not so bad and I realised I was able to change them whereas the next person sometimes cannot.


It’s a balance- of acknowledgement of your own VALID feelings and also using tools like comparing your issues with others and either seeing how they overcame them to give your brain actual tangible strategies to learn what to do to overcome or to cope with what you have/are enduring and then starting to pot those into place so you can help yourself. So that it doesn’t become a daily obsession to just stay as sad as possible because that is what you
Believe is the only way you SHOULD FEEL.... which is just self-flagellation...


Sorry if what I am saying is hard to fathom/understand/interpret ... I am actually finding this quite hard to verbalise without prefacing it/including into it, that fact that what my mother taught me doesn’t mean that you simply just don’t have ANY compassion for others and that you are unable to exhibit empathy for your fellow human, but you are instead not invalidating your own
Pain because others have pain too. But also that yes, on a scale what your are experiencing may be fixable compared to what others have gone through/are going through and you can perhaps learn amazing coping skills that pull you out of your slump and feelings of utter despair and hopelessness by learning about others that have suffered immensely and will suffer everyday for life due their afflictions and they are absolutely smashing their goals and dreams and that can make you (it usually ALWAYS makes me) feel more motivated and capable/able and happy and grateful and inspired.


That’s just my take on things..... and I don’t believe it is either wrong nor right..... it just IS. And I just pray that it may help even just ONE person.


You will notice that (even though at times while writing this I wanted to!) I haven’t included any specific personalised examples of these people that I have been inspired by in their determination and success and utterly triumphant outcomes after such beyond awful experiences - because I don’t want to single anybody out and say how bad their suffering is. It’s easy enough to find videos on YouTube or stories on Google abiut humans who have triumphed and sometimes have even become MORE successful after their awful experiences that before it occurred to them.


I will pray that everyone here who is depressed and feels alone- is able to take this advice (if they read this far!!!! Lol 😂) and utilise it in a positive way. Acknowledge > Accept > Look for inspiration & motivation from people who have overcome adversities you can just not fathom yourself personally >
Action! Put that inspiration and motivation you found in their stories into ACTION!


Much love and light to EVERY ONE:)


Liv xoxo

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.
