The World Unseen


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I found a link to a song by Rosanne Cash which is very moving. She is the daughter of Johnny Cash. She lost her Father, Mother and Step Mother in a two year period and this song is about grief. I hope the link works for you. Once your on the site. Click on the little blue tab to the left of the song entitled "The World Unseen."

Here is the link: (Below the link are the lyrics of the song)

The World Unseen

By Rosanne Cash

I'm the sparrow on the roof

I'm the list of everyone I have to lose

I'm the rainbow in the dart

I am who I was and how much I can hurt

So I will look for you in stories of hurricanes

Westward leading, still proceeding

To the world unseen

I'm the mirror in the hall

From your empty room I can hear it fall

Now that we must live apart

I have a lock of hair and one-half of my heart

So I will look for you

Between the grooves of songs we sing

Westward leading, still proceeding

To the world unseen

There are no gifts that will be found

Wrapped in winter, laid beneath the ground

You must be somewhere in the stars

'Cause from a distance comes the sound of your guitar

And I will look for you in Memphis and the miles between

I will look for you in morphine and in dreams

I will look for you in the rhythm of my bloodstream

Westward leading, still proceeding

To the world unseen

_____________

Peace and Love to all,

John - Dusky is my handle on here,

Love you Jack

Wow, that song is profound! Amazing talent to put to words, let alone song, what is felt in the heart.

"The World Unseen" is an awesome song that's on Rosanne Cash's "Black Cadillac" CD. But the CD also includes another song that's equally moving, called "I Was Watching You" (full lyrics below). The part of the song I love most is the chorus:

"Long before life there is love" and

"Long after life there is love."

I WAS WATCHING YOU

Headlights on a Texas Road

And Hank Williams on the radio

Church wedding, they spent all they had

Now the deal is done to become Mom and Dad

And I was watching you from above

'Cause long before life there was love

See those little girls dressed like china dolls

All for one then one by one they fall

High on a hill where the world passes by

You never came back but I know you tried

'Cause I was watching you from above

When it all falls apart there is love

All those years to prove how much I cared

I didn't know it but you were always there

Until September when you slipped away

In the middle of my life on the longest day

Now I hear you say

I'll be watching you from above

'Cause long after life there is love

Baby, I'll be watching you from above

Long after life there is love
