An autobiographical song that veers from resentment….”you betrayed me how do you live?” to amicability…. “so I wish for you love and light…” reflecting the many and mixed feelings and emotions that came to the fore following the sudden and unexpected ending of a long relationship.
In small part, the song touches upon the pain and hurt, the disbelief and sadness and the sense of loss, akin almost to bereavement itself, that comes with the territory of divorce.
To quote a very wise woman friend: “We are all souls trapped in flesh prisons that need to be fed and sheltered and doing the best we can.” We do the best we can, and in the words of a good song by “Noah and the Whale”, L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.
And so it does…!
