"Blackwater" as written by and David/karn Sylvian....
I hold you in
A sea of silence
On the borderline of truth
Open violence
I see no sign
I see no place I've loved
Depending on the signs
To find the road

Blackwater take me with you
To the place that I have spoken
Come lead me through the darkness
To the light that I long to see again

I walk with you
But sleep beside her
The summer came and went
It passes us over

I see her cry
I see the face I have loved
Depending on the blind
To find the road

Blackwater take me with you
To the place that I have spoken
Come lead me through the morning
For the land that I long to see again

    General CommentOne of the most wistful and beautiful songs I know of. It feels like resignation, submission to the inevitable, as prepared for death, but with peace, joy, and reverence. A homecoming, which is how I like to view my own death.
