Keeping Faith, Season 2

You know how I told you I was only watching documentaries? Well, I lied. I have been watching a few series from BBC.

I told y’all about Keeping Faith in 2018 and how much I loved the title song. I think the main actress in the series – Eve Myles, who starred in Torchwood – is brilliant in the role. The second season is out on Acorn TV and I’m pacing myself, going very slowly through each episode because I enjoy her portrayal of the character. She fleshes Faith out to have so many dimensions, just like normal people.

The music is fascinating, too. I love Steve’s Song, and the words to another one of the songs, Nothing Left, felt personal to me:

Amy Wadge Lyrics

“Nothing Left”

We will rise, we will fall, we will bend
We will break, we will stand on the edge, when the earth starts to shake
We will go to the end of it all, end of it all
We will fight to the death with our very last breath
We will numb all the pain till we don’t feel again
And we will go to the end of it all, end of it all

On and on it goes, yeah
Water as it flows, yeah
We don’t even know when the tide is turning
We don’t even know
High above the surface
Floating with no purpose
We don’t even know when the waves come crashing
When the waves come crashing

Higher still the wind blows
Drowning in the shallows
Holding our breath
Keep holding our breath
God knows, we got nothing left
All the shape of lighting
All the pain comes sliding
Holding our breath
Keep holding our breath
God knows, we got nothing left

We will crawl through the rubble and the dust to find
Pieces of the past that we left behind
Pray for the rain, for the rain
Heaven knows it’ll fall again

On and on it goes, yeah
Water as it flows, yeah
We don’t even know when the tide is turning
We don’t even know

Higher still the wind blows
Drowning in the shallows
Holding our breath
Keep holding our breath
God knows, we got nothing left
All the shape of lighting
All the pain comes sliding
Holding our breath
Keep holding our breath
God knows, we got nothing left

Higher still the wind blows
Drowning in the shallows
Holding our breath
Keep holding our breath
God knows, we got nothing left

Have you seen the series? What do you think of it?
