I’ll Follow You into the Dark

I first heard this song in 2007 and had never heard it since until I ran into it couple days ago. I decided to give it a try this evening. The song was written and performed by Ben Gibbard. I dedicate this to all my friends.


Love of mine some day you will die
But I’ll be close behind I’ll follow you into the dark
No blinding light or tunnels to gates of white
Just our hands clasped so tight
Waiting for the hint of a spark

If Heaven and Hell decide That they both are satisfied
Illuminate the NOs on their vacancy signs
If there’s no one beside you When your soul embarks
I’ll follow you into the dark

In Catholic school as vicious as Roman rule
I got my knuckles bruised by a lady in black
And I held my tongue as she told me
“Son fear is the heart of love”
So I never went back

If Heaven and Hell decide…

You and me have seen everything to see
From Bangkok to Calgary
And the soles of your shoes are all worn down
The time for sleep is now It’s nothing to cry about
’cause we’ll hold each other soon
In the blackest of rooms..
