We found each other in the dark

2 Aug

I found this song today and was instantly, deeply, in love with the lyrics. Side story: DH and I’s first kiss was in the dark. It was a moment of spontaneous, electric magic that coursed throughout both of our young bodies as teenagers, that I will never, ever forget.

He should be home in about four short hours. I don’t think my heart could wait any longer.

City and Colour – We Found Each Other in the Dark

I heard the church bells from afar,
But we found each other in the dark.
And when the smoke does finally pass
We will rise above all the ash.

Cause we’re gonna live, we’re gonna live, we’re gonna live
We’re gonna live, we’re gonna live, we’re gonna live
We’re gonna live, we’re gonna live, we’re gonna live
At last.

So bright, the flames burned in our hearts,
That we found each other in the dark.
Like beasts out in the wilderness
We are fighting to survive and convalesce.

But we’re gonna live, we’re gonna live, we’re gonna live
We’re gonna live, we’re gonna live, we’re gonna live
We’re gonna live, we’re gonna live, we’re gonna live
Like the rest.

Through the black starless water,
And the cold lonely air.
On the rock restless seas,
The vessel in deep disrepair.
And I swore they started singing,
But then oh, rejoice!
I can still hear your voice.

Then I heard the church bells from afar
But we found each other in the dark.
