Now Comes The Night

I read the other day that when you're happy, you enjoy the music, but when you're sad, you understand the lyrics. I'm typically a happy person, but when friends are hurting, I feel that along with them. I take it on for them and want to help - surround them with love, understanding, compassion and a long, heartfelt hug.

I was driving in my car yesterday, and this song came on my iPod. I'd never really listened to the lyrics before. I sometimes skip over slow songs when I'm driving because I need upbeat music to keep me awake.

However, I was glad I listened to the song and the lyrics this time. For friends who are saying goodbye to old friends and loved ones, friends who are grieving and for those of us remembering lost loves, friends and family members, I find these lyrics sad yet comforting, compassionate, loving and gentle.

Now Comes the Night
by Rob Thomas


When the hour is upon us
And our beauty surely gone
No you will not be forgotten
And you will not be alone
No you will not be alone

And when the day has all but ended
And our echo starts to fade
No you will not be alone then
And you will not be afraid
No you will not be afraid

When the fog has finally lifted
From my cold and tired brow
No I will not leave you crying
No I will not let you down
No I will not let you down
I will not let you down

Now comes the night
Feel it fading away
And the soul underneath
Is it all that remains
So just slide over here
Leave your fear in the fray
Let us hold to each other
'Til the end of our days

When the hour is upon us
And our beauty surely gone
No you will not be forgotten
And you will not be alone
No you will not be alone

My Favourite song by Rob Thomas.

It really is a beautiful song. Thank you for your comment.

I honestly get lost in these lyrics. They're so beautiful. When I once upon a time owned this disc, it was several spins before I got to this song. I was so shocked, I only listed to that track from then on...

It really is a beautiful song. It\'s playing right now on my iTunes.

:)
