Into My Arms by Nick Cave

I found the perfect song for my children.   I always said this to them when they were little. I stopped saying it because it just seemed to sound stupid as they got older….

As though I’d have forever to show them this was true.  As though anything I could ever do or have done would have been enough for them anyway….

seems so ridiculous now, really.

I loved them so much I’d have died for them…

And it just wasn’t enough.

And, I guarantee their dad wouldn’t have, but he’s the hero and I’m the dispensable, worthless one.  I guess loving someone so much you put their life and happiness over you own just makes you not lovable at all.  Selfishness is in style, not love.

I’ve so much more to say….  but I just can’t.
