"The One in Pain is at Peace But the Aftermath Lasts a Lifetime"

Iris Roberts posted this about her brother Sean on her FB page the other day.  It is a very powerful message that she sends to us all. 


Iris' words compelled me to pay a visit to my old friend Doug Courtney whom I have mentioned several times previously here on the Buzzyblog (click here.)  As Iris noted, suicide's  aftermath lasts a lifetime.
Michael Hutchence was found dead in a hotel room at the age of 37 and his death was ruled a suicide.  He had been working on a solo album with this tune partially completed.  Bono then helped complete the song by adding lyrics and vocals following Hutchence's death.  The song is actually from two points of view - Michael the depressed and Bono the friend wanting to help him.  Lyrics follow.

Are you gonna wake again? Are you gonna take it down? Oh babe, I don't wanna deal it Oh, make it alright Gimme some, my love Away, away, away I just wanna slide away and come alive again I just wanna slide away and come alive again I will see that love again, and find a life again I just wanna slide away and come alive again I wanted to let it go Just couldn't let it go I wanted to let it go Just couldn't let you go I would catch you (Just couldn't let you go) I'd catch you as you fall (Just couldn't let it go) I would catch you (Just couldn't let you go) I'd catch you if I heard your call But you tore a hole in space Like a dark star, falls from grace You burn across the sky And I would find you wings to fly And I would catch you I would catch your fall
