Temalied ‘07

leave a comment »

Elke jaar kies ek ‘n song as ‘n tipe van tema vir die jaar op hande. In 2006 was dit Juliet se Ridethepain (moenie vra nie).

Die proses is heel onwetenskaplik – ek wag vir die regte song wat op die regte tyd tot my spreek hierdie tyd van die jaar. 2007 se temalied is van Sarah McLachlan: Full of grace. Nie eers een van haar bekende songs nie. ‘n Keuse wat my definitief verras het.

2007: Genade, om in genade te leef en lief te hê. En verandering.

Hier is die woorde:

The winter here’s cold and bitter
It’s chilled us to the bone
We haven’t seen the sun for weeks
Too long too far from home
I feel just like I’m sinking
And I claw for solid ground
I’m pulled down by the undertow
I never thought I could feel so low
Oh darkness I feel like letting go
If all of the strength and all of the courage
Come and lift me from this place
I know I could love you much better than this
Full of grace
Full of grace
My love

It’s better this way, I said
Having seen this place before
Where everything we say and do
Hurts us all the more
It’s just that we stayed, too long
In the same old sickly skin
I’m pulled down by the undertow
I never thought I could feel so low
Oh darkness I feel like letting go
If all of the strength
And all of the courage
Come and lift me from this place
I know I could love you much better than this
Full of grace
Full of grace
My love

Aanvanklik mag die song effe depressief voorkom. Tog dink ek dit is nie.
