It's a Sad Song...

But we're gonna sing it anyway.

Last week, I saw the musical, Hadestown.

It's an incredible piece of theatre that tapped my toes, made me gasp, and made me cry.

But, like the caffeine coursing through my veins right now, the emotional impact of Hadestown continues to affect me.

Hadestown is the story of Orpheus and Eurydice. The lyrics of the last song are profoundly simple:

It's an old song.

It's a sad song.

It's a tragedy.

It's a sad, sad song.

But we're gonna sing it anyway.

We're gonna sing it again, and again, and again, and again.

All performers and all singers can get on the ground and understand those lyrics.

These old tunes are in our bones. We know how they end. We know they might be tragic, or sad, or triumphant... but we sing it anyway.

We sing it again, and again, and again.

Songs fill our souls the way nothing else can.
