Song Lyric Sunday, White Flag, Dido.

This is part of Helen Espinosa‘s Song Lyric Sunday.Helen’sprompt this week is : A song that helps pull you out of a dark place.  


Rules and Pingback here

Well I have been in some dark places over the years and I always turned to music and lyrics.So once again I have had to put on my thinking cap. 
Now I could turn to Immie but I know that could be very boring for you all so.

Let’s go back to 2003 I was at a very low ebb physically and mentally.I was still reeling with back pain and deep depression. I found Dido, White Flag . To me it was a song about knowing that you have reached rock bottom. No one will or can help you, you have to do it all yourself or go down.

Thanks in part to this song I did drag myself up. So here are the lyrics and video I hope they can help someone else too. 


White Flag. Dido

I know you think that I shouldn’t still love you,
Or tell you that.
But if I didn’t say it, well I’d still have felt it
Where’s the sense in that?

I promise I’m not trying to make your life harder
Or return to where we were

But I will go down with this ship
And I won’t put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I’m in love and always will be

I know I left too much mess and destruction
To come back again
And I caused nothing but trouble
I understand if you can’t talk to me again

And if you live by the rules of “it’s over”
Then I’m sure that that makes sense

I will go down with this ship
And I won’t put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I’m in love and always will be

And when we meet
Which I’m sure we will
All that was there
Will be there still
I’ll let it pass
And hold my tongue
And you will think
That I’ve moved on….

I will go down with this ship
And I won’t put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I’m in love and always will be

I will go down with this ship
And I won’t put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I’m in love and always will be

I will go down with this ship
And I won’t put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I’m in love and always will be

    I LOVE this song! I found this song during a dark time in my life as well. I’m not sure I truly appreciated it at the time, but I do appreciate you for reminding me how much I adore this song. 🙂

    I love Dido, I loved her ever since I was a little girl and didn’t know what her name was, and would make up my own lyrics to sing along her songs, but this one has been my song particularly!! Thanks for sharing
