Melodic Monday – “Flesh and Bone”

This week’s song is poignant and haunting. The words cling to your heart and you can feel the ache that reverberate’s from a darker and tumultuous place.

 

I present to you; “Flesh and Bone” by Keaton Henson:

 

And I am alone, so don’t speak
I find war, and I find peace
I find no heat, no love in me

And I am low and unwell
This is love, this is hell
This sweet plague that follows me

And my body’s weak
Feel my heart giving up on me
I’m worried it might just be
And my body’s weak
Feel my lungs giving up on me
I’m worried it might just be
Something my soul needs
Something my soul needs

And I see war on the screen,
And it is cruel and unclean,
But I still worry more about you

And I am rude and unkind
Have no thought, and have no time
Have no eyes, so no point of view

And my body’s weak
I feel my heart giving up on me
I’m worried it might just be
My body’s weak
Feel my lungs giving up on me
I’m worried it might just be
Something my soul needs
Something my soul needs
Something my soul needs

And I am more than this frame,
I feel hurt and I feel shame
I just wish you would feel the same

And I am more than these bones
I feel love, I feel alone
I just wish you would come home

My body’s weak
I feel my heart giving up on me
I’m worried it might just be
My body’s weak
Feel my lungs giving up on me
I’m worried it might just be
Something my soul needs
Something my soul needs
Something my soul needs

Is you, lying next to me
And it’s you, lying next to me”

 

The aching sadness is transformed with the thoughts of putting ones own dire needs on the back burner to be there for the one you love, wishing that they would make the same sacrifices for you, but it doesn’t always work that way.

Until next week!
C.A. Gallinger
