Lovely song

Postby daybyday » Mon Mar 25, 2013 4:44 pm

This song captures how I feel most days. When I wake up, I'm still shocked that this is my life. It's not just losing my dad to suicide but other experiences too that have, well, changed me (not for the better). Still finding my way. I'm sure our loved ones were feeling the same (clinging to hope but feeling lost, unfulfilled, scared).

Thought I would share... it's lovely, sad and hopeful all at the same time (get your tissues ready)

Colin Hay - Waiting for my real life to begin

Here are the lyrics:

Any minute now my ship is coming in
I'll keep checking the horizon
And I'll stand on the bow
And feel the waves come crashing
Come crashing down, down, down on me

And you said,"Be still, my love
Open up your heart
Let the light shine in"
Don't you understand?
I already have a plan
I'm waiting for my real life to begin

When I awoke today suddenly nothing happened
But in my dreams I slew the dragon
And down this beaten path
And up this cobbled lane
I'm walking in my own footsteps once again

And you say,"Just be here now
Forget about the past
Your mask is wearing thin"
Let me throw one more dice
I know that I can win
I'm waiting for my real life to begin
[ From: http://www.metrolyrics.com/waiting-for-my-real-life-to-begin-lyrics-colin-hay.html ]

Any minute now my ship is coming in
I'll keep checking the horizon
And I'll check my machine
There's sure to be that call
It's gonna happen soon, soon, oh so very soon
It's just that times are lean

And you say,"Be still, my love
Open up your heart
Let the light shine in"
Don't you understand?
I already have a plan
I'm waiting for my real life to begin

Hey heyeyeyeyey
Hey yeeeeeee
Hey heyeyeyeyey
Eeh eeh eeh eeh eh x5

On a clear day
I can see, see for a long way

On a clear day
I can see, see a very long way
Just taking it day by day. I miss you, Dad.

Thanks, In Search of Peace...

Things are ok. I have a great husband and good friends but only my husband really knows/understands what I'm feeling as he lives with me and is on this journey with me. With friends it's not really something I talk about often or at all. We've been having issues with some family members in our life and it's just this constant battle, it seems. I feel resentment still over people who are just kind of "there" but not really listening or present. I have come to realize that some things or people will truly never change and it's a hard fact to face. I have felt very out of place in my life since all of this began happening. I have health issues as well which doesn't help. I am pretty young but feel old inside/out. Really miss my dad. The guilt just never goes away.

Wish I could get outside myself sometimes...life is just hard. Not what I envisioned at all.

Thanks again - and for "getting it."

I hope life calms down for you, too..
Just taking it day by day. I miss you, Dad.
