Love Is Stronger Than Death

  • LoveLoveLove
    LoveLoveLove

    Me & my friend were walking
    In the cold light of mourning.
    Tears may blind the eyes but the soul is not deceived
    In this world even winter ain't what it seems.

    Here come the blue skies Here comes springtime.
    When the rivers run high & the tears run dry.
    When everything that dies.
    Shall rise.

    LoveLoveLove is stronger than death.
    LoveLoveLove is stronger than death.

    In our lives we hunger for those we cannot touch.
    All the thoughts unuttered & all the feelings unexpressed
    Play upon our hearts like the mist upon our breath.
    But, awoken by grief, our spirits speak
    "How could you believe that the life within the seed
    that grew arms that reached
    And a heart that beat.
    And lips that smiled
    And eyes that cried.
    Could ever die?"

    Here come the blue skies Here comes springtime.
    When the rivers run high & the tears run dry.
    When everything that dies.
    Shall rise.

    LoveLoveLove is stronger than death.
    LoveLoveLove is stronger than death.

    Shall rise. Shall rise.
    Shall rise. Shall rise.Writer/s: MATT JOHNSON

  • Kami from Los Angeles, CaI've always loved this song, as I'm a huge the the fan, but after losing someone I love, listening to this song gives me some deeper comfort. I wish more people knew about it. I usually only care about the music in songs but Matt Johnson's lyrics are so insightful that I'm drawn to them and I think this is his best work ever.
  • John from Levittown, NyPhenomenal album , Dusk helped me get through my first year in the Navy relatively sane.
  • Michael from New York City, Ny"dusk" is, in my opinion, one of the greatest and most underrated albums of the last twenty years. this song, as well as "if you can't change the world (change yourself)", is the perfect marriage of musicality and poetry. love it, love it, love it. thanks for including it.
