I don't want to say too much about it. I loved the version which was released in the 1990s with Candi Staton. However it's the Florence+The Machine version I'm sharing with you today.
The day I was discharged from hospital, December 22nd 2013, it was on the radio as we drove home.
The lyrics seemed to reflect precisely how I felt about Andy and his support in the preceding week. Tears came and poured, silently. Scarlett asked what was wrong with Mummy. Andy told her I was just relieved; relieved to finally be out of hospital and on my way home. It's true, I was so relieved and so very thankful for Andy, Scarlett and Woody.
I haven't listened to this since then. It felt too raw, it still does feel too raw. Listening to the lyrics again I want to offer them up to Andy; it's true, all the words are true, they really reflect how thankful I am for him and his love and helping me get through an experience I will never fully recover from, in many ways.
