Day 05: A song that reminds you of someone


It wasn't the place I expected to hear a song like this. I had never heard it before either. A church, over here not usually a place for music, certainly not the conservative ones. A funeral is never an occasion one reminds with pleasure. I had read the little leaflet a few times, as most of the religious ceremony went past me. I sat on the balcony, couldn't see much, had driven from far to make it in time. I didn't know anybody around me, not that it mattered much, I was here for her. Though she would never know I was here, I'm sure she would have expected it.

We had had a good time together. Not a long relation, serious though. We kept in touch afterwards, though not often and from a distance, we were both happy with that. Until she told me she was ill. It came as a shock. The terrible illness was beaten once, but came back with a rage. The second time she lost. A young life gone, the last years suffering more than anybody deserves.

The song started quiet, I read the lines and knew why she picked the song on her own funeral. "stay". A cry from far. A short word, though it sounded as if it had seventeen syllables. I had to search the web that night. A Danish band, song written with a reason, appropriate. Does it remind me of someone? It is worse. I hear the song in my head whenever I think of her.

Saybia - The second you sleep:



Saybia - The second you sleep

You close your eyes
And leave me naked by your side
You close the door so I can’t see
The love you keep inside
The love you keep for me

It fills me up
It feels like living in a dream
It fills me up so I can’t see
The love you keep inside
The love you keep for me

I stay
To watch you fade away
I dream of you tonight
Tomorrow you’ll be gone
It gives me time to stay
To watch you fade away
I dream of you tonight
Tomorrow you’ll be gone
I wish by God you’d stay

I stay awake
I stay awake and watch you breathe
I stay awake and watch you fly
Away into the night
Escaping through a dream

I stay
To watch you fade away
I dream of you tonight
Tomorrow you’ll be gone
It gives me time to stay
To watch you fade away
I dream of you tonight
Tomorrow you’ll be gone
I wish by God you’d stay

Hey
Stay

I stay
To watch you fade away
I dream of you tonight
Tomorrow you’ll be gone
It gives me time to stay
To watch you fade away
I dream of you tonight
Tomorrow you’ll be gone
It gives me time to stay
To watch you fade away
I dream of you tonight
Tomorrow you’ll be gone
I wish by God you’d stay

Stay awake
Stay
Stay

I wish by God you’d stay
