  • (Piano)

  • (Singing) It was done

  • When the benediction had been sung

  • Firelight gently woke us from our golden night

  • My surprise

  • I can turn to see your open eyes

  • And I know You are alive

  • I know that smile

  • Nothing more

  • In the after

  • There is waking from your sleep

  • And your lover

  • Is the only face you see

  • We are after

  • Ever after

  • There is laughter

  • Afterneath

  • The war

  • Nobody ever even asked what for

  • Up above

  • Nothing matters but the ones you love

  • So get out with me

  • Now you've got enough with me

  • Just the two of us you see

  • And nothing more

  • In the after

  • There is waking from your sleep

  • And your lover

  • Is the only face you see

  • We are after

  • Ever after

  • There is laughter Afterneath

  • Oh, we after

  • Ever after

  • There is laughter

  • Afterneath

  • Oh

  • Oh

  • Oh

  • Oh

  • Thank you.

  • (Applause)

  • Thank you very much.

  • (Applause)

  • Thanks.

  • I love a depressing song ...

  • (Laughter)

  • you know?

  • I've been writing them for 15 years now,

  • and to be honest, over that time,

  • I've come to kind of believe that they're not really depressing at all.

  • In fact, I think they're kind of the most important songs we have.

  • Songs that sing of sorrow,

  • of grief,

  • of longing,

  • of the darker side of love,

  • the underside of being alive,

  • these are the songs I just never tire of hearing

  • and I never tire of writing,

  • because they make me feel less alone.

  • They speak to a very real part of being human

  • that can often be hidden in fear and shame

  • and pushed deep down where it lingers and rots.

  • But I think in listening to these songs --

  • really listening --

  • can allow us to refeel these hard emotions,

  • but in a cathartic and healing way.

  • In a way that reminds us, as we listen, that we're not alone in darkness.

  • There's a Japanese phrase known as "mono no aware,"

  • which roughly translates as "the bittersweet poignancy of things,"

  • or the pathos or "ahness" of things.

  • It's a valuable awareness of impermanence,

  • both a kind of gentle, transient sadness as things pass by in life,

  • but also a deeper, softly lingering sadness

  • about the impermanence of all reality.

  • "Mono no aware" can be manifest in lots of life stories and moments

  • and songs.

  • One example in Japanese culture is the celebration of the cherry blossom.

  • The cherry blossom in and of itself is no more impressive

  • than that of an apple or orange tree,

  • but what sets it apart is its brevity.

  • Cherry blossoms fall within a single week --

  • can be whisked away on the gentlest breeze --

  • and it's this that makes it more beautiful.

  • It's utterly fragile,

  • and fragility gives life its poignancy.

  • Now, being a cheery chap,

  • nothing speaks to me more than this, and --

  • (Laughter)

  • you know, I think it's been the essence of my songwriting for years,

  • of what moves me to write,

  • what inspires me to sing.

  • Because pain and grief and doubt,

  • when it's made manifest in music, in song --

  • when it's made beautiful in poetry and painting,

  • it can build a community and a kinship

  • in the knowledge that we are none of us alone in darkness.

  • My next song is one that I call "Killing Me,"

  • and as the name suggests,

  • it's not a dance floor favorite.

  • (Laughter)

  • But it isn't miserable.

  • It's full of love and hope.

  • And I think it exemplifies everything I've been talking about.

  • And it's the first song I've written from the perspective of somebody else,

  • specifically my grandmother,

  • as she lives on without my late grandfather,

  • as she experiences new things in her life --

  • her grandchildren getting married,

  • having their own children,

  • speaking at TED --

  • all the while she lives without,

  • and all the while she misses her soul mate.

  • Thank you.

  • (Piano)

  • (Singing) Sweetheart would you wake up today?

  • I promise you would recognize my faith

  • I want to show you how I've grown in this place

  • In this place I'm not alone

  • And I know I'll be OK

  • But it's always harder When the winter comes to stay

  • And I can't help remember all the words I never said

  • And it's killing me That you're not here with me

  • I'm living happily

  • But I'm feeling guilty

  • And you won't believe The wonders I can see

  • This world is changing me

  • But I will love you faithfully.

  • (Piano)

  • Oh, everything is taller these days

  • Maybe I feel smaller and time rushes away

  • So much I could show you

  • How all the great-grandchildren

  • Have been laughing like we did when we were young

  • I've been laughing like we did when we were young

  • Oh, it's killing me that you're not here with me

  • I'm living happily

  • But I'm feeling guilty

  • Oh, you won't believe The wonders I can see

  • This world is changing me

  • I will love you faithfully

  • Oh

  • Oh

  • Oh

  • Oh

  • Oh, it's killing me

  • That you're not here with me

  • I'm living happily

  • But I'm feeling guilty

  • Oh, you won't believe The wonders I can see

  • This world is changing me

  • I will love you faithfully

  • Oh, it's killing me

  • That you're not here with me

  • I'm living happily

  • But I'm feeling guilty

  • Oh, you won't believe The wonders I can see

  • This world is changing me

  • But I will love you faithfully

  • Thank you very much.

  • (Applause and cheering)

(Piano)
