S.T. Song # 7 & 8

I'm back to give you the next two songs from M & A's soundtrack! Thanks for hanging in there with me.

I'm really glad you are enjoying this healing experience with me. Honestly, I've been a feeling a little removed or far away from the twins lately. Is there a numb stage of grief? The pain of their loss does hit me randomly here and there, but mostly it just seems like a dream to me at the moment. Like I was never pregnant at all. Like I never held them and looked into their faces. I guess this is a good thing...but in this numbness, there seems to be sadness too. A sadness that it feels like I am growing away from M & A. I want to hold on for dear life.

I guess this is the way it goes and I'll just keep doing what I'm doing, hoping that the feeling will become more comfortable.

There isn't much to say about the songs below. They are songs I sing often and with tears of love.


# 7 on the playlist is sort of sad and beautiful. There actually aren't that many words to the song but the chorus is lovely. The harmonies and gentle guitar music that accompany make it one I wish my husband and I could have sung to M & A. The lullaby feel to it always gets me swaying and thinking of my angels.


Song # 7 Taylor Swift and The Civil Wars - Safe & Sound




I remember tears streaming down your face
When I said, I'll never let you go
When all those shadows almost killed your light
I remember you said, don't leave me here alone
But all that's dead and gone and passed tonight

Just close your eyes
The sun is going down
You'll be alright
No one can hurt you now
Come morning light
You and I'll be safe and sound

Don't you dare look out your window darling
Everything's on fire
The war outside our door keeps raging on
Hold onto this lullaby
Even when the music's gone
Gone

Just close your eyes
The sun is going down
You'll be alright
No one can hurt you now
Come morning light
You and I'll be safe and sound

Ooh, ooh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,
Ooh, ooh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Just close your eyes
You'll be alright
Come morning light,
You and I'll be safe and sound

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh,
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh,
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Oohhh.



  # 8 Christina Perri - A Thousand Years

(Please excuse the ad)



 
 
Heart beats fast
Colors and promises
How to be brave
How can I love when I'm afraid to fall
But watching you stand alone
All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow

One step closer

I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don't be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more

Time stands still
Beauty in all she is
I will be brave
I will not let anything take away
What's standing in front of me
Every breath
Every hour has come to this

One step closer

I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don't be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more

And all along I believed I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more

One step closer
One step closer

I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don't be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more

And all along I believed I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more
