Sit still now
Feel my hand
On your heart.
Four tiny lines today, soaked in love and tenderness – for ailing hearts to sit still, sip a drink and listen to a song.
How about ‘It Takes a Lot to Know a Man’ by Damien Rice? When I first heard this song, the tears kept coming long after the song ended. The lyrics are intense, but even more intense is the way the song moves. It’s a cascade, that starts slow, then quickens, until in the end, it just sweeps you away.
Happy drowning, y’all.
