song of the day | what sandra thinks


This week’s theme for ‘Song Lyric Sunday‘ is… peace.

This is not a song about being at peace. It’s a song about craving peace… wanting to go back in time (to The Night We Met…) to undo the past to avoid the pain of the present.

And that’s pretty much my life… wishing I could go back in time and make different choices… better decisions. I just know my present would be better… if only I could go back and change my past.

Of course, I can’t. But there is, and I imagine always will be, a part of me that cannot accept that. Maybe it’s because I always want to fix things. My kids’ things… my things… everything. Of course, I can’t do that either…

[Wow… I just realized that a character I created in a story I wrote (that I’ve never shared) has this same ‘fixer’ mentality. She hates when she can’t fix things… for everyone. I didn’t consciously make her like that because I’m like that… it just happened. I guess that’s not unusual… pieces of me showing up everywhere in my writing whether fact or fiction… whether intended or not…]

The Night We Met / Lord Huron

I am not the only traveler
Who has not repaid his debt
I’ve been searching for a trail to follow again
Take me back to the night we met

And then I can tell myself
What the hell I’m supposed to do
And then I can tell myself
Not to ride along with you

I had all and then most of you
Some and now none of you
Take me back to the night we met
I don’t know what I’m supposed to do
Haunted by the ghost of you
Take me back to the night we met

When the night was full of terrors
And your eyes were filled with tears
When you had not touched me yet
Oh, take me back to the night we met

I had all and then most of you
Some and now none of you
Take me back to the night we met
I don’t know what I’m supposed to do
Haunted by the ghost of you
Take me back to the night we met


Written by Lord Huron

    This is the first time I’ve heard this song. “I don’t know what I’m supposed to do
    Haunted by the ghost of you..” gave me chills.

  3. Another great song pick. I totally get the wanting to be able to fix things…everything. It’s frustrating knowing I can’t. But then again, nobody can. 😊😊

    Life is full of the effort we put into trying to make peace with our past. It isn’t so easily done. Beautiful song though. I wish you peace.
