I want to hold the hand inside you
I want to take a breath that's true
I look to you and I see nothing
I look to you to see the truth
You live your life
You go in shadows
You'll come apart and you'll go blind
Some kind of light into your darkness
Colors your eyes with what's not there.

Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think it's strange you never knew

A stranger's light comes on slowly
A stranger's heart without a home
You put your hands into your head
And then smiles cover your heart

Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think it's strange you never knew

Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think it's strange you never knew
I think it's strange you never knew

    General CommentI love 'Fade into you' by Mazzy Star. I am a guy and it just reminds me of my great-grandmother, who was a Finnish immigrant, and lost her oldest son in WW11 in the Pacific, in the early heavy fighting near New Guinea. A Japanese sniper bullet hit him in the neck in waist deep waters, on Nov 28 1942. My grandma was his closest sibling and had been recently married when the family got the tragic news. For me personally, this is the perfect song for their family, because, it was found in later years that bipolar mental illness ran in the family, and the son who died in the war had been heroically going on ahead of his men in the waist deep water, when he took his fatal bullets. He may have been in a phase of mania from his bipolar illness, and it gave him courage to charge on ahead of his men, because he was their sergeant. So to me, this is the perfect song, when I think of how mental illness was not known about so much in those days, and not treated. And how it seems strange to me now that great-grandma never knew her son who died and got a Purple Heart award in WW11, was actually mentally ill. You see, he was known for wild mood swings and a vicious temper even before joining the military, so he had some classic signs of bipolar in my mind.
