Depeche Mode - A Higher Love

I can taste, more than feel
This burning inside is so real
I can almost lay my hands upon
The warm glow that lingers on

Moved, lifter higher
Moved, my souls on fire
Moved, by a higher love

I surrender all control
To the desire that consumes me whole
And leads me by the hand to infinityand lies in wait at the heart of me

Moved, lifted higher
Moved, my souls on fire
Moved, by a higher love

Heaven bound on the wings of love
There's so much you can rise above

Moved lifted higher
Moved, my souls on fire
Moved, by a higher love

I love this song, and it helps me every day. The lyrics sound like they were written just for me. It has a great message. Give it a chance. Kintsugi by John Flynn:

Thanks GoHomeAgain.

It can be triggering for me, a line or two -- good when I need to let it out though.

I know it's been a while since I posted a song, but here is one that when I hear it, it just puts me in a pensive mood. This has to be one of my favorite remakes of all time. For me the sound of silence is meaningful in that many times the abuse would happen without either of us saying a word. It's like by not talking, I was not participating in what was happening. On a broader level, many of us were encouraged to be silent, and thankfully this sight has helped encourage us to break that silence.

"The Sound of Silence"-Disturbed

And a great live version of this song:

Cherokee Louise ~ Joni Mitchell

When the stuff of my childhood was going on, I spent hundreds of hours hiding in the vast stormdrains underneath interstate 44. The main entrances were more than an eighth of a mile from Doris's house, but I could crawl into a street gutter and down an eighteen inch diameter pipe to them a couple houses down. Adults couldn't fit.

Joni Mitchell wrote the song about a friend from her childhood, so it would have happened at least a decade before I was born. Still there is I don't know. ..sadness but validation that other people sought the same sort of refuge I did.


CHEROKEE LOUISE

Cherokee Louise is hiding in this tunnel
In the Broadway bridge
We're crawling on our knees
We've got flashlights and batteries
We've got cold cuts from the fridge

Last year about this time
We used to climb up in the branches
Just to sway there in some breeze
Now the cops on the street
They want Cherokee Louise

People like to talk
Tongues are waggin' over fences
Waggin' over phones
All their doors are locked
God she can't even come to our house
But I know where she'll go

To the place where you can stand
And press your hands like it was bubble bath
In dust piled high as me

Down under the street
My friend
Poor Cherokee Louise

Ever since we turned 13
It's like a minefield
Walking to the door
Going out you get the 3rd degree
And comin' in you get the 3rd world war

Tuesday after school
We put our pennies on the rails
And when the train went by
We were jumpin' round like fools
Goin' "Look no heads or tails"
Goin' "Look my lucky prize"

She runs home to her foster dad
He opens up a zipper
And he yanks her to her knees
Oh please be here-please
My friend
Poor Cherokee Louise

Cherokee Louise is hiding in this tunnel
In the Broadway bridge
We're crawling on our knees
We've got Archie and Silver Screen
I know where she is

The place where you can stand
And press your hand like it was bubblebath
In dust piled high as me

Down under the street
My friend
Poor Cherokee Louise

Oh Cherokee Louise

Here is a beautiful song on Ed Sheeran's new album that I wanted to share with all of you. It's called Supermarket Flowers. It's a bit of a tear-jerker.

OK Dudes... I've got my list too. I think some of these songs remind us of how things were in the past, how things are now (hopefully better), and provide some hope for us in the future. The point of my songs is not to put me back in a place where I don't want to go, but instead, give me a little hope and sometimes (like the second one), a pitch to be understood.

First.. "What Doesn't Kill You", Kelly Clarkson. This is an "I Will Survive" song that inspires me to be better, and helps me to cope when I can get down on myself. In the end, I am better than my rapists, and I WILL make my life reflect that.

Second, "You Don't Know" Scarlett & Black. I heard this on the radio one day while I was in the car switching stations. Yeah, no one knows what we know as far as sexual assault is concerned. The trouble is, try to tell someone that. Try to get someone to listen. To be understood. If only society would get that.

Third, "Standing On Higher Ground", Alan Parsons (I think). This one is probably older than I am. I remember in therapy I had to recount a lot of what happened (story below). A lot of times when I looked back at what happened I felt like I was looking at it all from above. Well, his song makes you look at everything from higher up, and reevaluating how it looks from there. From that point, and the here and now, I need to "breathe the air" and try to move ahead, and leave behind the assault, the "rat race", and the aftermath.

This is a good thread, you guys. Thanks for sharing.
