Perspective
light beckons

Quiet Desperation - Christy Moore
"My soul is in the mountains
My heart is in the land
I'm lost here in the city
There's so much I don't understand
There's quiet desperation comin' over me
Comin' over me
I've got to leave I can't stay another day
There's an emptiness inside of me
I can't bear the loneliness out here
There's another place I've got to be...
I see too much meanness
And I feel too much pain
There's quiet…

I wanted to express the human condition when perspective is dark; the vagueness, the ghostly feeling in times of quiet desperation. The way 'light beckons' when perspective shifts.
The song meant a lot to me when I was 'lost' - it still makes me cry

"The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation." Henry David Thoreau

Paradox; light has no meaning if we did not know darkness, light and dark are inter-dependent.
