MoFo 10: "Live through this and you won't look back"

Another late one tonight. I was at school til after 7, then was at a Stars show. They are one of my favorite bands, and so amazing live! Every time they come I try to see them because their music is so beautiful it's made me cry and I never want their shows to end. Since I'm home late and still have to study for another exam that's tomorrow I will leave you with the lyrics to one of their songs that struck me the very first time I heard it years ago and still does. I have been known to listen to this on repeat for hours...

Your Ex-Lover is Dead:

God that was strange to see you again
Introduced by a friend of a friend
Smiled and said 'yes I think we've met before'
In that instant it started to pour,
Captured a taxi despite all the rain
We drove in silence across Pont Champlain
And all of the time you thought I was sad
I was trying to remember your name...

This scar is a fleck on my porcelain skin
Tried to reach deep but you couldn't get in
Now you're outside me
You see all the beauty
Repent all your sin

It's nothing but time and a face that you lose
I chose to feel it and you couldn't choose
I'll write you a postcard
I'll send you the news
From a house down the road from real love...

Live through this, and you won't look back...
Live through this, and you won't look back...
Live through this, and you won't look back...

There's one thing I want to say, so I'll be brave
You were what I wanted
I gave what I gave
I'm not sorry I met you
I'm not sorry it's over
I'm not sorry there's nothing to save

I'm not sorry there's nothing to save...

Also, here's the link to the video on youtube. I'll be back tomorrow with more MoFo goodness and lots of links for the roundup. Good night!
