S.T. Songs # 11 & 12

Took a little break there for a minute! But I'm back to give you two more songs from Michael and Alena's soundtrack.

No words are needed to explain the first one.


Song # 11 Eric Clapton - Tears in Heaven




Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven?
Would it be the same
If I saw you in heaven?

I must be strong
And carry on,
'Cause I know I don't belong
Here in heaven.

Would you hold my hand
If I saw you in heaven?
Would you help me stand
If I saw you in heaven?

I'll find my way
Through night and day,
'Cause I know I just can't stay
Here in heaven.

Time can bring you down,
Time can bend your knees.
Time can break your heart,
Have you begging please, begging please.

Beyond the door,
There's peace I'm sure,
And I know there'll be no more
Tears in heaven.

Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven?
Would it be the same
If I saw you in heaven?

I must be strong
And carry on,
'Cause I know I don't belong
Here in heaven.

*************************
Song # 12 on M & A's playlist is one that marks the pain of the hard days. I chose to put this song on the soundtrack because although it is dedicated to my twins, I wanted to express the moments when I just need to fall apart. The ones where I need someone to pick me up and protect me from my own thoughts and memories. There are times when I deliberately bring myself pain. I know that looking at their pictures or working on the memory book while in a certain mood will drag me down. There are times that I want to feel sad. I don't want to lose the few memories I have, so I dig them up.


This song reflects that. It speaks to those random moments of scratching off the scab. The moments that I most need someone to just breath for me so I can get through it and find the 'up' side again.

Song # 12  Sia - Breath me
 




Help, I have done it again
I have been here many times before
Hurt myself again today
And, the worst part is there's no-one else to blame

Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
Unfold me
I am small
And needy
Warm me up
And breathe me

Ouch I have lost myself again
Lost myself and I am nowhere to be found,
Yeah I think that I might break
I've lost myself again and I feel unsafe

Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
Unfold me
I am small
And needy
Warm me up
And breathe me

Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
Unfold me
I am small
And needy
Warm me up
And breathe me

  3. So I couldn't figure out how to send you a personal message. I had just written a blog about tax deductions with stillborns. After I posted I got an email from someone saying the only way you can do that is if the baby was alive for any amount of time. If thbaby was born dead, you cannot claim your child. So, I have some phone calls to make on Monday to see what we should do since Maggie was born dead and ne'er breathed outside of the womb. So, hopefully we can figure this out!
