There is a song that is being played on the radio here regularly by a group called Madison Violet. I've always liked it, but never really listened to it closely until today. While singing along belting the words at the top of my lungs, tears were streaming down my face. I was thinking of the tragedy dear Kate and her family is facing, I thought of dear DC's difficult situation and I thought about all the suffering everyone here endures daily. It's a strangely upbeat song so I I looked it up on Google...
Crying, seems to be a song from a loved one to her brother. Over a lilting melody, the message is simple:
"It's not a bad world, brother/
It's not a bad world/
Crying your eyes out/
It's all about crying your eyes out/
Cry on me now."
To me it could be about my brother who died far too young but it could also be about a sister or a friend, anyone who needs a shoulder to cry on. It could be about me when I need a shoulder to cry on...
Have a listen, it's quite beautiful.
Sometimes it does the soul good to just have a really good cry.
