This is a song that for me is not only linked with the movie Philadelphia. It is also linked with the feeling of being lost, feeling like you are almost invisible, like you do not matter at all to anyone, especially to you yourself. That's why for me this song is so very sad, but strangely enough it also gives me strength, even hope. At the times when I feel lost and very negative about myself, it makes reflect on what I do have, a home, loved ones, security, a future. And even if I can't touch any positive feelings at that moment, I can keep holding on to the knowledge that I do have those things, I just need to find my way back out of the black cloud that surrounds me. This song makes me cry, but that's okay. Those are tears I need to shed anyway to resurface again.
I was bruised and battered, I couldn't tell what I felt. I was unrecognizable to myself. Saw my reflection in a window and didn't know my own face…
deze stilte wrikt wreekt mijn huid stuk als glas geslagen scherven scherp dodelijk hier ~ snij de levenslijn in mijn palm bloedeloos bleek maar schrij niet om mij ~ lach ik ben twee zonnen aan de hemel ~ heel intens geluidloos doch zwijgend hoor ik je zuchten in rood gekleurde luchten sein jij mij met witte vlag echter ik dwaal af en nimmer neer ik vlucht in fantasie
