Lyric of the week

Feb. 20, 2013

We satisfy our endless needs
and justify our bloody deeds,
in the name of destiny
and the name of God

And you can see them there,
On Sunday morning
They stand up and sing about
what it’s like up there
They call it paradise
I don’t know why
You call someplace paradise,
kiss it goodbye

(The Eagles, “The Last Resort”)

And there will come a time, you’ll see, with no more tears.
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.

(Mumford & Sons, “After the Storm”)
