"I Grieve"
Peter Gabriel


it was only one hour ago
it was all so different then
there's nothing yet has really sunk in
looks like it always did
this flesh and bone
it's just the way that you would tied in
now there's no-one home

i grieve for you
you leave me
'so hard to move on
still loving what's gone
they say life carries on
carries on and on and on and on

the news that truly shocks is the empty empty page
while the final rattle rocks its empty empty cage
and i can't handle this

i grieve for you
you leave me
let it out and move on
missing what's gone
they say life carries on
they say life carries on and on and on

life carries on
in the people i meet
in everyone that's out on the street
in all the dogs and cats
in the flies and rats
in the rot and the rust
in the ashes and the dust
life carries on and on and on and on
life carries on and on and on

it's just the car that we ride in
a home we reside in
the face that we hide in
the way we are tied in
and life carries on and on and on and on
life carries on and on and on

did I dream this belief?
or did i believe this dream?
now i can find relief
i grieve

I LOVE that song...on of PG's most underplayed AND overrated.Though I must admit,the version on the "City of Angels" soundtrack is far superior to the "Up" album version.

Go on and grieve, then. Cry and fight and rail against the things (death and otherwise) that tear us one from another. Curse the heavens and damn the Earth if you're so inclined.

But then - tomorrow - get up and move on. I know you can do it.
