Lenten Blogging 2022: Day 26

Have been thinking of this song a lot lately.  Maybe because my birthday is coming this week, and everything that comes with being older.  I'm reminded of all that has come before, and all of the people who have gone on.  The lyrics are so filled with meaning.  I don't know the religious beliefs of DeVotchKa but the words really resonate with me:

Hold your grandmother's Bible to your breast

Gonna put it to the test

You wanted to be blessed...

 Maybe it also has something to do with how the song was used in the commercial for Gears of War 2.  And that game came out in a really trying period for me.  I thought the song was beautiful.  It has become an anthem in my mind, when I think back to certain things that have happened in my life.

So here it is, one of my most favorite songs: "How It Ends" by DeVotchKa...

Beautiful song. I know I've heard it somewhere else. A movie trailer maybe.?
