Great Big Sea


Recommended Posts

I got the new great big sea CD that I have been waiting on. This was Becky's favorite band - very fun in general, happy acoustic music. I talk more about them in my last post in the caregiver section. The first song was written for me, I think. I find it typical of her that Becky would find me through a GBS song. After two months, I am still very sad, but I coming to understand that the defining moments of my life are not Becky's sickness and death, but the life and family we built together.

Shines Right Through

These days I feel a change

All the patterns rearranged

Though I can explain,

I know I'm not afraid.

Now I realize

All good things can be supplied

And they come from you

It's all brand new

It shines right through.

This feeling that I found

Like sleeping on a cloud

Smiling at the sky

Not even knowing why

Strange how things work out

I know without a doubt

It comes from you

It's all brand new

It shines right through.

Break me out of emptiness

Lead me to your light

Anything worth having is

Worth some sacrifice.

Laid too long in loneliness

This world was made to change

Half an hour of sunshine

Is worth a week of rain

Air is flowing free

It's a little easier to breathe

This soul unbound

was lost and found

No reason to hide

I feel a light inside

It comes from you.

It's all brand new

And it shines right through.
