Susan’s Song of the Week for Jun 1, 2012

Song of the week:  Coming Back to Life by Pink Floyd

Something shifted for me this week.  And the words and music of this song really resonated.  Relationships are complex ~ whether they are with another person, a practice, or myself.  We are each on our own path and are constantly intersecting with others.  And what a sweetness when moments of clarity – shining sun – come through.

“Coming Back To Life”…

Where were you when I was burned and broken
While the days slipped by from my window watching
Where were you when I was hurt and helpless
Because the things you say and the things you do surround me
While you were hanging yourself on someone else’s words
Dying to believe in what you heard
I was staring straight into the shining sun

Lost in thought and lost in time
While the seeds of life and the seeds of change were planted
Outside the rain fell dark and slow
While I pondered on this dangerous but irresistible pastime
I took a heavenly ride through our silence
I knew the moment had arrived
For killing the past and coming back to life

I took a heavenly ride through our silence
I knew the waiting had begun
And headed straight into the shining sun
