A song for Hades

Kula Shaker, “Shadowlands”. I’d listened to the song before without making the connection, but today I listened to it right after their track Persephone from the same album, and it absolutely hit me over the head – this is His love song to His Queen! It’s so incredibly moving to listen to in that context… the love and longing are absolutely palpable.

Every story has a beginning
From our birth star to the very end
And the wheel keeps on spinning
The tattered cloth of love you wear

These are the Shadowlands
And nobody understands
How to love you

Every second makes an hour
Wrap them tight and keep them warm
For every seed holds a flower
Waiting for the rain to fall

These are the Shadowlands
And I’m just a shadow man
Trying to love you
Oh let me love you

Can’t you see I’m coming one step at a time
Oh I’m reaching out into the light
Let me love you

Every story has a beginning
From our birth star until the very end
