Day 9: Music (Capture Your Grief 2013)

Music

Day nine of Capture Your Grief (in memory of Freddie Leigh Bromley) and the subject title today is ‘Music‘.

Feeling my way through the darkness
Guided by a beating heart
I can’t tell where the journey will end
But I know where to start.

These are lyrics from ‘Wake Me Up‘ by Avicii.  This song is particularly poignant for us because it came on the radio whilst my husband and I were driving to visit churches to pick one for Freddie’s plaque.

As soon as we heard it we turned up the volume, held hands, sang and wept at the words – especially this verse.  I think you’ll know why.  I love this song as it has a really good feel about it and when you listen to the lyrics in relation to what has happened to us with Freddie passing, it takes on a whole deeper meaning.  This will be his tune.

I also love the phrase life’s a game made for everyone and love is the prize because life is a game and you can be thrown out the game at any time, but everyone is a winner because love is your prize.  We lost Freddie at the start of the game but we are still winners because we found love for a child and a stronger love for each other.

The sunset behind the verse is taken from our bedroom window looking towards the west of the island.  It shows darkness, light, a future, the end.

Please take a few minutes to play the song and put yourself in our shoes whilst listening to these lyrics.  Hopefully you will hear what we will always hear.

[Official Lyric Video]

Feeling my way through the darkness
Guided by a beating heart
I can’t tell where the journey will end
But I know where to start

They tell me I’m too young to understand
They say I’m caught up in a dream
Well life will pass me by if I don’t open up my eyes
Well that’s fine by me

So wake me up when it’s all over
When I’m wiser and I’m older
All this time I was finding myself
And I didn’t know I was lost

I tried carrying the weight of the world
But I only have two hands
Hope I get the chance to travel the world
But I don’t have any plans

Wish that I could stay forever this young
Not afraid to close my eyes
Life’s a game made for everyone
And love is the prize

So wake me up when it’s all over
When I’m wiser and I’m older
All this time I was finding myself
And I didn’t know I was lost

Didn’t know I was lost
I didn’t know I was lost
I didn’t know I was lost
I didn’t know
