Carry Me Down

Today I'm posting a song that I can put on repeat and listen to over and over and over again and never get tired of hearing it.  I'm not quite sure what it is about this song that I love, but love it I do!  Actually, this band has a lot of songs that I enjoy listening to.  They're one of those bands that you can put the CD in and listen to it all the way through and when it ends you think, "That was good, I'm going to listen to it again." I first discovered this song on MTV.  Jacob and I occasionally set the DVR to record Headbangers Ball on MTV2 so we can keep up with all the new hard rock and metal music and see if there is anything new we like.  This song came on one night when we were watching it and I immediately loved it!  It is one of the most positive songs about death I have ever heard -- especially where hard rock and metal are concerned.  It is beautifully written and has such a great meaning -- the music is good and the lead singer's voice is perfect for the band's sound.  It is just an amazingly encouraging song.  Most Demon Hunter songs are very deep, this one is no different.  I hope you enjoy it.

I am including the lyrics because they read like a poem -- they're beautiful.  I'm also including the video so you can hear the song as well.  Enjoy! 

Carry Me Down by Demon Hunter

If you see me losing ground
Don't be afraid to lie
I know the pain inside my heart
Can't break the fear inside of yours
And if you see me losing faith in what it means to die
Don't let me leave before I know what lies beyond the stained-glass doors

Save sorrow for the souls in doubt
Bleed every care out

Will you carry me down the aisle that final day,
with your tears and cold hands shaking from the weight?
When you lower me down beneath that sky of grey,
let the rain fall down and wash away your pain.

For every word we never spoke,
We have a tear to cry
For every silence like a wall between a better you and I.
So if you see me losing sight of all the death in life
Find the peace in every time I fail to see the death in mine

Let all the fear inside you drown
Tear out the blade and lay it down
Save sorrow for the souls in doubt
Bleed every care out

Oh, the blood is rushing out
Oh, I'm better off without
Oh, the walls are closing in
Oh, Sing for me again
