You know how songs travel through your heart for periods of time? This is the one that was running through my mind in the two weeks before all this happened. There is a mournfulness to this song which of course is now fitting.
I’ve put a link up under blog roll to an Allison Crowe performance of this song.
The lyrics which are really grabbing at my heart now are:
“Baby I’ve been here before
I know this room, I’ve walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew you
I’ve seen your flag on the marble arch
love is not a victory march
it’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah
There was a time you let me know
What’s really going on below
but now you never show it to me, do you?
And remember when I moved in you
the holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah
