Music

Music has always been a huge part of mine and Jamie’s life together, from a single song bringing back floods of memories, to music festivals and gigs we’ve gone to and shared some amazing experiences. It’s a well known fact that music stimulates  a deep part of the brain in a unique way, and I had a special playlist of songs that I would play to Jamie when he was still in a coma, each song carefully picked because of a certain memory it held for us together. I even remember one time when Jamie had just started speaking again, I had put on an Annie Lennox song called ‘Who’s that Girl’, and even though he wasn’t really speaking much at that time, he managed to sing along to the whole song!

I’m also a singer songwriter and have found that writing songs about the experiences we have been through together has been like a therapy for me; an outlet for my anger, sadness; the fact I ultimately had to grieve for a Jamie that no longer existed. The most important song I wrote was while he was in the later stages of his time in rehab; I wanted to show him how dedicated I was to him and let him know that I would always be by his side. So here are the lyrics to Mountain.


Tell me darling to stay, you gave me every good reason to wait
Even though words we could not speak, into your heart still I could reach
I always knew you would come back to me
And I will climb this mountain, just to follow you
I know on just what path you’ll lead me to
And I will climb this mountain, just to follow you, to follow you
All the way home

CHORUS
I wanna give you shelter when the sky falls down with rain
I wanna ride the storm so we see sunshine once again
You know i’ll take you there, you know I’ll take you there
You know I’ll take you there; all the way home

V2
Trust in me in all I do, I don’t want one day to pass by without you
And when we’re eye to eyes meet, boy the whole world is at your feet
And you are always next to me
And I will climb this mountain, just to follow you
I know on just what path you’ll lead me to
And I will climb this mountain, just to follow you, to follow you
All the way home

CHORUS
And for this reason, what can I say, you are the only one who makes me feel this way
With every vow that I give to you
I would take every breath, if you asked me to
