Best Kept Secrets – Death


I Have been thinking about death recently. Lamb the band have split up. (I think it is final.)I was listening to the Best Kept secrets album when the the CD player shifted from track 3 to track 4.

Gorecki.

The beginning of the song caught my attention. It is used to great effect in the film Moulain Rouge. Nicole Kidman, no less, sings it. The lyric caught me straight away. The mix of love and death got me thinking in a big way. In 2 weeks at Lochend school’s SU I am doing Death. I volunteered for it. So my Death antennae are set to full.

for those of you wonderin’ what the lyrics are they are reproduced for you below.

GORECKI
If I should die this very moment
I wouldn’t fear
For I’ve never known completeness
Like being here
Wrapped in the warmth of you
Loving every breath of you
Still in my heart this moment
Or it might burst
Could we stay right here
Until the end of time until the earth stops turning
Wanna love you until the seas run dry
I’ve found the one I’ve waited for

All this time I’ve loved you
And never known your face
All this time I’ve missed you
And searched this human race
Here is true peace
Here my heart knows calm
Safe in your soul
Bathed in your sighs
Wanna stay right here
Until the end of time
‘Til the earth stops turning
Gonna love you until the seas run dry
I’ve found the one I’ve waited for
The one I’ve waited for

All I’ve known
All I’ve done
All I’ve felt was leading to this
All I’ve known
All I’ve done
All I’ve felt was leading to this
Wanna stay right here
‘Til the end of time ’till the earth stops turning
I’m gonna love you till the seas run dry
I’ve found the one I’ve waited for
The one I’ve waited for
The one I’ve waited for

Wanna stay right here
‘Til the end of time ’till the earth stops turning
I’m gonna love you till the seas run dry
I’ve found the one I’ve waited for
The one I’ve waited for
The one I’ve waited for
