The Space Between

To me, this amazing song by Dave, to me is-

Not so much between lovers- but between one’s soul, one’s physicality of where the brain begins and the body connects.

Trapped, really; the neck is a bridge; many times, bridges cannot hold onto the stress of the wavering winds and natural disasters like long lost loves and sad endings.

Like fencing- a beautiful sport of dancing and death.

But where is that space?

When does the spirit push the brain to actually feel the pain, feel like what it’s like to breathe.

One must feel pain to live and breathe.Image result for dave matthews images space between

To breathe is to live.

Being stifled clogs the brain and soul like a clogged vacuum cleaner.

“stupid thing- why won’t it work?”

Stomping on the vacuum will not fix it.

It is the smiles and full hearts and love and breathing fresh peace.

Yes, one can feel peace through one’s nostrils!!

“Take my hand ’cause we’re walking out of here”

I wish my hand could be held again.

Lyrics to The Space Between

You cannot quit me so quickly
Is no hope in you for me?
No corner you could squeeze me
But I’ve got all the time for you love
The space between
The tears we cry is the laughter keeps us coming back for more
The space between
The wicked lies we tell to keep us safe from the pain
Will I hold you again?
These fickle fuddled words confuse me
Like will it rain today
We waste the hours with talking talking
These twisted games we’re playing
We’re strange allies
With warring hearts.
What a wild-eyed beast you be
The space between
The wicked lies we tell that hope to keep us safe from the pain
Look at us spinning out in the madness of a roller coaster
You know you went off like the devil in the church
In the middle of a crowded room
All we can do my love
Is hope we don’t take this ship down
The space between
Where you smile and hide
Is where you’ll find me if I get to go
The space between
The bullets in our firefight
Is where I’ll be hiding waiting for you
The rain that falls
Splashed in your heart
Ran like sadness down the window into your room
The space between
Our wicked lies is
The hope to keep us safe from pain
Take my hand
’cause we’re walking out of here
Right out of here
Is all we need dear
The space between
What’s wrong and right
Is where you’ll find me hiding waiting for you
The space between your heart and mind
Is the space we’ll fill with time
The space between
The tears we cry is the laughter keeps us coming back for more
The space between our wicked lies
Where we hope to keep safe from pain
The space between
The space between
