The Most Beautiful Song

As we listen to music and our favorite songs, we sometimes forget to listen to the lyrics. I mean REALLY listen to the lyrics. Some songs have the loveliest words and we underestimate the power they have. Here are the lyrics to “I Will Follow You Into The Dark” by Death Cab For Cutie.

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

[Chorus]
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

[Chorus]

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

[Chorus]

I’ll follow you into the dark
