Hive Open Mic Week 118 – Vocal Cover Of Katatonia’s “Decima”

Greetings!!!

 This song was released the year following the death of my wife Monica. She and I were in a wreck with a drunk driver and she was killed. The lyrics of this song seem like something a departed loved one would say to the special person that was left behind. It seemed like she was talking to me. There are a few songs out there like that and it is still sometimes hard to listen to this particular song. The theme this week seemed to be screaming at me to sing this for you guys. I hope you all enjoy!!!

Lyrics

Leaving the choirs behind to sing
Of anything fair, of lilac spring
A dream of truce behind my eyes
A life of journeys will unwind
Emergence through idle air
Born under a trouble sign
Will it hurt to see me find?
The long lost peace of mind
Darling, you had me here for a while
Breaks my heart to see you cry
In the wake of incomplete time
Darkness overthrows
Map of nowhere is in my hand
The roads are blurred, sojourners land
So take however long you want
(But don’t forget my love)
You’ve pledged yourself to come along
You’re lost in reveries
Holding back the tears
Faint sound of the wires
The butterfly is in the fire now
Lost in a memory you’re holding my hands
One heart is in the ground
The other is veiled in the silver all around
Born under a trouble sign
Will it hurt to see me find?
The long lost peace of mind
Darling, you had me here for a while
Breaks my heart to see you cry
In the wake of incomplete time
