When the World Can’t Hear

October 11, 2016

Image result for what could have been

Ever wonder what could have been if….of course – we all have. Just like that movie about two paths followed after a chance encounter (Sliding Doors).

Back in 2014 I hired a woman who was with us for a little over a year before moving on. She was a good worker, and an excellent provider as a single mother to her 7 children. I took a chance with her but was rewarded with her determined attitude. But there is no doubt that hiring deflected her life toward a much more positive situation which lead ultimately to her early demise this weekend in a horrific car crash. Now seven children have no mother.

Every decision has an effect and alters outcomes.

[Verse]
Em C
It was upon row of houses, tight skirts and baggy trousers
Bm
Grey men and cheap disguises, high hopes and higher rises
Em
Who lived a girl who was on a mission
C
Who lived a boy who was under suspicion
Bm
Tried hard to stay beside her
Bm
Until the devil put his seed inside her
Em C
How? You know how… Sleep to love and the sand runs out
Bm
So close to midnight
Em C Bm
Time to fly, Do or die, stung in the headlights

[Chorus]
Em C
Here we lie, high and dry
Bm
The world will never see you ’till you open your eyes
Em C
Say goodnight, kill the light
Bm Em
The world will never hear you tonight, Idlewild

[Verse]
Em
For two years he tried to reach her
C
Worshiped the ground beneath her
Bm
She, she was always running… He, he saw the end was coming
Em
But now the story takes a turn
C
She wakes up and her sheets are burning
Bm Em
Head down against the fire… Now, now, now the table turns
Em C
She won’t learn, sleep to love and your bed starts burning
Bm
So close to midnight
Em C Bm
Idlewild you don’t know if you never need to

[Chorus]
Em C
Here we lie, high and dry
Bm
The world will never see you ’till you open your eyes
Em C
Say goodnight, kill the light
Bm Em C Bm
The world will never hear you tonight, Idlewild… Idlewild

[Verse]
Em
I thought that we were good together
C
I thought that we could weather the weather
Bm
Whether or not the wise the wherefores
Bm
That high hopes are only there because, because
Em
Because I thought the only thing between us
C
Was something shallow not a river so deep as sea is
Bm
Dredge up the wreckage our parents left us
Bm
Lay it on the banks to rot and fester
Em
Now a skeleton is like a death star
C
And Gretna Green and Derby, Manchester
Bm
I don’t want to hear it now

[Chorus]
Em C
Here we lie, High and dry
Bm
The world will never see you ’till you open your eyes
Em C
Say goodnight, kill the light
Bm Em C Bm
The world will never hear you tonight, Idlewild… Idlewild
Em C Bm Em
Kill the light, Idlewild…
