Pike River Overflow

This mine tore everything from this heart of mine. And it won’t bring you back.

If I’d known our last goodbye would really be our last; I’d have made it good and I’d have made it last.
How do I get through this?

Tea and sympathy Don't get through
Is there anything you need?
All I need is you

How do I get through this?

Going round in my mind; was it fast? Was it slow? Did it hurt? Did you think of me? There’s no way to know. I’ve got to let it go. I can’t let it go.

I want to lash out, find someone to blame but revenge just burns and adds to the pain and it won’t bring you back.

How do I get through this?

Nobody left behind is left unscarred.
They say time will heal it won't be so hard
That a heartbreak shared is a heart break halved.
But as long as you're in there. And we're out here
Pike River will always be a river of tears

Ask God; Why so many? Did you really need them all? ‘
God said “I didn’t dig that hole. And I can’t bring them back”
Who'll bring them back
How do we get through this?
I guess we... Just go through this.
