Songs for Pain 2: Sea Song

I’ve been meaning to write about this song for a while, because out of all the songs for pain I know, this one is the dearest to me.
But it is a very painful song, and I’m just not sure how it will affect you. It could be triggering. Or just make no sense. I hope you find comfort in it. If it’s annoying, I hope you won’t mind it terribly.

So this morning I was inspired (yet again) by my friend @mamarobinj on her blog Farewell Stranger. This #ppdchat mama writes brilliantly about her dark moments.
Her post was titled:
Sea Song comes from the album Rock Bottom. It was time to share it.
I wrote a comment on her blog with a link to this video, and got the courage to share this song on my blog too.

The lyrics don’t make much literal sense, and he talks about lunacy, which in my opinion does NOT apply to postpartum depression.
Yet somehow this song brings me comfort, of the misery-loves-company sort. I spent countless hours listening to this song on repeat at various points in my life. I fell in love with it in high school, and came back to it many times since.  It can tug at my heart’s strings enough to help me cry when I need to and can’t.

SEA SONG
Words and Music by Robert Wyatt

You look different every time you come
from the foam-crested brine
It’s your skin shining softly in the moonlight
Partly fish, partly porpoise, partly baby sperm whale
Am I yours? It should give essay writer helper for https://eduessayhelper.org details about your solution to the reader. Are you mine to play with?

Joking apart when you’re drunk
You’re terrific when you’re drunk
I like you mostly late at night – you’re quite all right

But I can’t understand the different you
In the morning when it’s time to play
at being human for a while
Please smile!

You’ll be different in the spring, I know
You’re a seasonal beast
Like the starfish that drift in with the tide
So until your blood runs to meet the next full moon
Your madness fits in nicely with my own
Your lunacy fits neatly with my own – my very own

We’re not alone…

 

And another version. The magic of the internet and YouTube handed me a cover of this song by an Israeli band. I’m Israeli too, but  I never heard of them. They are called “A Trio Under the Influence”. I think I like them.
They got their own strange take on this song .
There is some talking in Hebrew, which I get a kick out of, and my #ppdchat friend @notjustaboutwee might enjoy too, but for those of you interested in the singing part, it starts 50 seconds into the video.

How do you like the cover? Do you even like the song? I’d love to know.
Hugs to you,

Yael.
