William Blake, "Death's Door" & M. Ward, "Blake's View"

Unread postby musicmonkey » Sun Mar 08, 2009 6:37 pm

This painting is referenced in M. Ward's song Blake's View.

M. Ward wrote:Death is just a door, Blake said it first
It's just another room we enter, it's a threshold that hurts
Birth is just a chorus, death is just a verse
In the great song of spring that the mockingbirds sing
We come and we go, a-weeping and a-wailing
Our heads in the hands of the nurse
Well, put your head on my shoulder, baby, tell me where it hurts
You say you lost your one and only, could it get any worse?
I said, "Death is just a door, you'll be reunited on the other side"

We come and we go, a-weeping and a-wailing
Our heads in the hands of the nurse
Well, put your head on my shoulder, baby, tell me where it hurts
You say you lost your one and only, could it possibly get any worse?
Death is just a door, you'll be reunited on the other side
Yeah, death is just a door, you'll be reunited on the other side
Yeah, death is just a door, you'll be reunited by and by
