The saddest song part 9
I listened to this song for years and never really got what it was about. Then a few years back I realised it was about Holy Week and a partly imagined dialogue between Jesus and Judas. In my protestant disregard for the liturgical year this appears after Easter….
The bit that really gets me is after the guitar solo when Judas in despair sings:-
‘Waves of regret, waves of joy
I reached out for the one I tried to destroy
You, you said you’d wait till the end of the world’.
In the context of the song and the hope of Grace, that always chokes me up.
