All Hallow's Grim (And Giveaway!)

   Today marks the day of Pagan Culture's All Hallow's Grim party and for my party post I decided to share one of my favorite song lyrics by Death Cab For Cutie "I Will Follow You Into the Dark". It's a slightly macabre song about the infinite nature of true love, much like one of my favorite movies, "The Crow". I'd like to think that if it ever came to it, I would have the courage to follow my love, my husband of a little over a year now (we've been together for five total) "into the dark".

   If you've never listened to this song, go do it now!!




Love of mine some day you will die,
But I'll be close behind.
I'll follow you into the dark.

No blinding light or tunnels to gates of white;
Just our hands clasped so tight,
Waiting for the hint of a spark.
If heaven and hell decide,
That they both are satisfied,
Illuminate the no's on their vacancy signs:

If there's no one beside you,
When your soul embarks;
Then I'll follow you into the dark.

In Catholic school as vicious as Roman rule,
I got my knuckles bruised by a lady in black,
And I held my tongue as she told me,
"Son, fear is the heart of love."
So I never went back.

If heaven and hell decide,
That they both are satisfied,
Illuminate the no's on their vacancy signs:

If there's no one beside you,
When your soul embarks;
Then I'll follow you into the dark.

You and me have seen everything to see;
From Bangkok to Calgary.
And the soles of your shoes are all worn down;
The time for sleep is now.
It's nothing to cry about,
'Cause we'll hold each other soon.
In the blackest of rooms.

If heaven and hell decide,
That they both are satisfied,
Illuminate the no's on their vacancy signs:

If there's no one beside you,
When your soul embarks;
Then I'll follow you into the dark.
Then I'll follow you into the dark.

I hope you know you've left me in tears. This is one of my favorite songs (and I love The Crow too).

My Piano Man will be very happy with you. Tonight, after we get back from Comic Con, I'll make something sweet and yummy for us, grab two glasses of wine and dance "I Will Follow You Into the Dark"

Gracias!

I absolutely love this song! I had a boyfriend die a couple of years ago, and this song got me through some tough days. <3
