Sister Rosetta Goes on Before Us: Meditations on Life, Love and all that Monday

Strange things are happening everyday
I hear the music up above my head
Oh the side of my heart has left me again
I hear music up above
Secrets are written in the sky
It looks like I’ve lost the love I’ve never found
Tho the sound of hope has left me again
I hear music up above
Standing in the my broken heart all night long
Dark and silky like a friend where love wore off
Looking for the land that’s hidden in the cross
Find it’s lost
I know, I love you too much
I’ll go on alone, to get through

I hear Rosetta singing in the night
Echoes of light that shine like stars after they’re gone
And tonight, she’s my guide as I go on alone

I hear Rosetta singing in the night
Echos of light that shines like stars after they’re gone
Tonight she’s my guide as a girl on the moon
With the music up above

Two versions of the last stanza. Sam Phillips wrote the song, but Robert Plant recorded a year before Phillips with Alison Krauss on Raising Sand. Suits my mood as I meditate on life, love and all that.
