NOM Song of the Week: Consider Me Gone

Ok, enough of that country crap.  I was thinking that David Bowie's "China Girl" would be a good choice for this installment of the New Order Mormon Song of the Week, but instead have settled  on an offering from Gordon Sumner, better known simply as Sting, the former frontman for the Police.  It comes from his masterful Dream of the Blue Turtles album and is titled "Consider Me Gone."  Especially on point from a Mormon perspective is the last verse of the song, which I have highlighted.  Hat tip to my buddy -Domokun- for the suggestion.

There were rooms of forgiveness
In the house that we share
But the space has been emptied
Of whatever was there
There were cupboards of patience
There were shelfloads of care
But whoever came calling
Found nobody there

After today, consider me gone

Roses have thorns, and shining waters mud
And cancer lurks deep in the sweetest bud
Clouds and eclipses stain the moon and the sun
And history reeks of the wrongs we have done

After today, consider me gone

I've spent too many years at war with myself
The doctor has told me it's no good for my health
To search for perfection is all very well
But to look for heaven is to live here in hell

After today, consider me gone



Thanks for using my suggestion! Nothing like some great music from the angst-ridden teenage years of my life to pull me through another angst-ridden part of me life.
