Song Lyric Sunday. Glass.

This is my entry for Helen Vahdati‘s Song Lyric Sunday.

This week Helen’s prompt is Glass.

Well I could of chosen “Walking on Broken Glass” by Annie Lennox. Or I could of chosen ” I love the sound of broken glass” by Nick Lowe. Or “Broken Glass” by Hazel O’Connor. All brilliant songs of their time all about glass too.

I thought no, so I have gone for another song that means a lot to me, it often reflects my life. It’s by Annie Lennox and it’s “Through the glass darkly”

“Through The Glass Darkly”

I’m caught up in the middle
But I’ll take it to the end
It’s comin back together
And it’s breakin’ down again
If I could find a reason
I’d say you were my friend
If I could find a reason
I’d say it once again

When I’m with you the days are bittersweet
Still I can’t remember what it feels to be complete
I’ve tried pretending
But it drives me of my feet

I don’t know what its coming to
But I’m looking through
The glass darkly… yea

Bright lights
Come and go
Playin’ blues songs on my radio
Shadows still. appear
In the house tonight
Ooh yea
Ghosts that come in from the past
All those ghosts that keep on comin’ back
Slidin’ through the walls
And my windows
Ooh yea

When I’m with you
The nights are cold and long
Still can’t remember what
It feels like to be strong
I’ve tried to blend in
But it seems I don’t belong
I don’t know what it’s comin’ to
But I’m looking through the glass darkly… yea
Can I find you? can I find you? I can’t find you… yea
Lyrics from A to Z Lyrics.

Happy Sunday everyone.

    Serendipitous synchronicity, I’d say, with today’s poem over on ECR, with the lines you quoted, to wit:

    “Only in darkness can we see the light.
    Only in silence can we hear the music….”

    Nice one….

    I appreciate the lyrics, Willow! It is profound that only in darkness can we see the faintest light, only in the deepest sorrow we could hear the voice of our soul. Nice pick! ❀
