1 maart 2022 · Leestijd 3 min

Als zijn schoonzus overlijdt aan kanker, schrijft Dan Reynolds, zanger van Imagine Dragons, het lied ‘Wrecked’. Gesloopt door verdriet vraagt Dan zich in het nummer af, hoe verder te gaan zonder haar.

"Ze was het helderste licht,” zegt Reynolds, “Een baken van vreugde en kracht voor iedereen die ze ontmoette. Haar plotselinge overlijden heeft me geschokt op manieren die ik nog steeds niet kan uitdrukken."

Muziek als toevluchtsoord 

Reynolds was bij haar toen ze stierf. “Het was de eerste keer in mijn leven dat ik op deze manier getuige was van de dood. Ik realiseerde me hoe fragiel het leven is en dat alles eindig is.”

Wrecked schrijven was zijn manier om om te gaan met dit vreselijke verlies. “Muziek is altijd al mijn toevluchtsoord. Ik ben geen gelovig man, maar ik hoop dat ze het lied ergens kan horen, op een plek waar ze geen pijn meer heeft.”

Songtekst Wrecked

Days pass by and my eyes stay dry and I think that I'm okay
'Til I find myself in conversation fading away
The way you smile, the way you walk
The time you took to teach me all that you had taught
Tell me, how am I supposed to move on?

These days I'm becoming everything that I hate
Wishing you were around, but now it's too late
My mind is a place that I can't escape your ghost
Sometimes I wish that I could wish it all away
One more rainy day without you
Sometimes I wish that I could see you one more day
One more rainy day

Oh, I'm a wreck without you here
Yeah, I'm a wreck since you've been gone
I've tried to put this all behind me
I think I was wrecked all along
Yeah, I'm a wreck

They say that the time will heal and the pain will go away
But everything, it reminds me of you and it comes in waves
Way you laugh and your shoulders shook
The time you took to teach me all that you had taught
Tell me, how am I supposed to move on?

These days I'm becoming everything that I hate
Wishing you were around, but now it's too late
My mind is a place that I can't escape your ghost
Sometimes I wish that I could wish it all away
One more rainy day without you
Sometimes I wish that I could see you one more day
One more rainy day

Oh, I'm a wreck without you here
Yeah, I'm a wreck since you've been gone
I've tried to put this all behind me
I think I was wrecked all along

These days when I'm on the brink of the edge
I remember the words that you said
"Remember the life you led"
You'd say, "Oh, suck it all up, don't get stuck in the mud
Thinking of things that you should have done"
I'll see you again, my loved one

I'll see you again, my loved one
Yeah, I'm a wreck
I'll see you again, my loved one

Yeah, I'm a wreck without you here (I'm a wreck without you here, loved one)
Yeah, I'm a wreck since you been gone (I'm a wreck since you've been gone)
I've tried to put this all behind me
I think I was wrecked all along (I'm a wreck)
Yeah, I'm a wreck

Sometimes I wish that I could wish it all away (but I can't)
One more rainy day without you (one more rainy day)
Sometimes I wish that I could see you one more day (but I can't)
One more rainy day
