I Heard You Calling - Live At Northcote Social Club



My friend Adrian was in intensive care, clearly navigating the final mile of life. We all knew his passing was imminent. After days of being with him, in and out of the ICU, we needed some air and maybe some swill to settle our fraying edges.


As we exited the Austin Hospital in Melbourne the rush of cold air outside hit my body and replaced the scent of the sterile air inside, with the clean air of out doors.


In that moment I felt Adrian falling. I heard him calling. It’s like he waited for us to leave, so that he could slip away without us having to witness it.


We returned to find out that he would not. The look on the nurses face gave it all away within a millisecond. The world caved, the hurt set in and the breaking of the grieving to come launched upon us all.


One of the only things to think about next was how to carry his memory forward.


Lyrics are below the video so you can follow along.

I HEARD YOU CALLING


When the nurse came, I read her face

Like a book which burst into flame and fell like ash in the dirt

Then I felt the whole world hurt


When I saw you swimming freely

Above your bed, into the air then into the night

My love turned you into light


I swear I felt you falling

Yeah I swear I felt you falling

Yeah I swear I felt you fall into deep sleep


Inseparable magnetic forces

No matter how far apart the two of us are

I will always be pulled toward your star


I swear I heard you calling

Yeah, I swear I heard you calling

Yeah, I swear I heard you calling my name


The air that I breathe

Everything I see

Every memory – lives on in me


Yeah, and I swear I heard you calling

Yeah, I swear I heard you calling

Yeah, I swear I heard you calling my name
