Friday Song of the Day: One Last Wish "My Better Half"

You probably already know I am a huge fan of Rites of Spring, so it's not a stretch for me to love what Rites of Spring turned into for a few months in 1986: One Last Wish.

The song I want to share today is called "My Better Half" and it has become even more important to me over the last year or so... it's kind of crazy how much I can relate to these lyrics:

I would engage the world as my ally
I would engage the world
Against jealous fear and bitter ambition
That only aspires to the done and the dead
I went down to the sea
I don't care if you don't believe me
It spoke to me about my life
It spoke with the voice of reason
It told me to risk it all with the chance of nothing returned

Isn't that the task of love?
Isn't that the challenge of love today?

I went down to the sea
I don't care if you don't believe me
It spoke to me about my life
It spoke with the voice of reason
It told me to risk it all with the chance of nothing returned

Why do we make it so hard?
Why live our lives in distance?
Why do we make it so hard?

I thought life should be a chance to defeat statistics
I thought life should be a chance
And if sometimes I don’t pursue it
The sea speaks my better half
