I Will Follow You Into The Dark

Maybe it’s because Jenn’s been out of town for part of the week or because I’ve been closely following the tragic story of James Kim, or because of the tension/apprehension surrounding my Grandfather, either way I had a good sob because of the song “I Will Follow You Into The Dark” by Death Cab For Cutie this morning.

Love of mine some day you will die
But I’ll be close behind
I’ll follow you into the dark

No blinding light or tunnels to gates of white
Just our hands clasped so tight
Waiting for the hint of a spark
If Heaven and Hell decide
That they both are satisfied
Illuminate the NOs on their vacancy signs

If there’s no one beside you
When your soul embarks
Then I’ll follow you into the dark

In Catholic school as vicious as Roman rule
I got my knuckles bruised by a lady in black
And I held my tongue as she told me
“Son fear is the heart of love”
So I never went back

If Heaven and Hell decide
That they both are satisfied
Illuminate the NOs on their vacancy signs

If there’s no one beside you
When your soul embarks
Then I’ll follow you into the dark

You and me have seen everything to see
From Bangkok to Calgary
And the soles of your shoes are all worn down
The time for sleep is now
It’s nothing to cry about
Cause we’ll hold each other soon
The blackest of rooms

If Heaven and Hell decide
That they both are satisfied
Illuminate the NOs on their vacancy signs

If there’s no one beside you
When your soul embarks
Then I’ll follow you into the dark
Then I’ll follow you into the dark

    I have not seen my true love in over 6 months, I’ve been away in a foreign country setting up an offshore corporation. I’ve been engaged for 1.5 years now without getting married… My love was with me in East Asia, but she got sick and had to leave for medical reasons.
    We are about to be re-united in 2 weeks, in the USA, near my home in Cali, I hope heaven & hell decide to not come between us again.
