Torch
Alanis Morissette Lyrics


I miss your smell and your style and your pure abiding way
Miss your approach to life and your body in my bed
Miss your take on anything and the music you would play
Miss cracking up and wrestling and our debriefs at end of day

These are things that I miss
These are not times for the weak of heart
These are the days of raw despondence
I never dreamed I would have to lay down my torch for you like this
I miss your neck and your gait and your sharing what you write
Miss you walking through the front door documentaries in your hand
Miss traveling our traveling and your fun and charming friends
Miss our Big Sur getaways
And to watch you love my dogs

These are the things that I miss
These are not times for the weak of heart
These are the days of raw despondence
I never dreamed I would have to lay down my torch for you like this

One step, one prayer, I soldier on, simulating moving on

I miss your warmth and the thought of us bringing up our kids
And the part of you that walks with your stick-tied handkerchief

These are things that I miss
These are not times for the weak of heart
These are the days of raw despondence
I never dreamed I would have to lay down my torch for you like this

I totally love this song and I also think it was a beautiful song TORCH written because I were married for 25 years and my husband passed away last year May 24th 2018. So the song describes our love as soulmates.. I grieve for one year and I laid down the Torch to move on with my life. Yeah the song definitely describes our life together.
Sincerely,
Rebia Kinard

I've been there. It was like standing at his graveside and grieving over the loss of everything him. I did survive, but not without scars.

for me it’s someone I needed to be ok to even really live and they hate me I can’t fix it and now I will never see them again
And the first line of the second verse is so effing true!
Sorry for being a freak...

This song came on on the way to the vet.
My wife of 10 years, had a cocker spaniel that came to love me... 16 yeas old, but I knew her for 10 years.
2 weeks ago today, we had to put her down... and I lost it in the car when it came on.
We have no kids, and it's so quiet in the house when my wife is gone.
Nobody to greet me at the door... nobody peeking past the curtains when I pull up... nobody to run towards me when they go outside.
Somehow, we move on... but still remember.
😌

Most of my adult life I’ve been a bit of a loner, lost jobs and the friends that go with that. Had to move every two years or so, one problem or another. Finally have my own flat, live alone. One things remains constant is the music I listen to, especially Alanis I can relate to the lyrics and am a fan. She just has a way with words.
