Got to walk out of here, I can't take anymore
gonna stand on that bridge, keep my eyes down below
what ever may come, and what ever may go
that river's flowin', that river's flowin'

Time to Say Goodbye

My mother has been gone for eight years, this was one of her favorite songs, and I invariably tear up whenever I hear it.

Her "Somewhere Over the Window" is my favorite version of that perfect song:

Awww, that's so sweet Nemo2 *reaches for a tissue to dab the tears*. It made me remember this song about a couple getting older:

I'll grant that this is a strange angle on this topic, but '39 by Queen (composed by Brian May) is very sad. Can a song about an event in a science fiction future be sad? I guess so.

Samclem...dude! Any reason to post a Queen song is A-OK by me. But, hey, if we're going there, we might as well consider this one...

The pistol and the heart

I don’t know how to tell you,
don’t know how to explain
that there is no remedy
for what I feel inside,
for what I feel inside

The moon tells me one thing,
the stars tell me another,
and the light of day sings me
this sad, sad song,
this sad, sad song

The kisses you gave me, my love,
are the ones that will kill me,
and the tears I’ve cried are drying
with my pistol and my heart,
and my life here goes by
with the pistol and the heart

I don’t know how to love you,
don’t know how to embrace you,
because this pain I feel,
this pain I feel
won’t leave me alone

The night is so dark
with its quiet shadows,
and the wind keeps singing
this humble song,
this humble song

The kisses you gave me, my love,
are the ones that will kill me,
and the tears I’ve cried are drying
with my pistol and my heart,
and my life here goes by
with the pistol and the heart

I love KD. Her interpretation of this song is amazing. She inspires me to be strong in the face of all I've faced in my life. She's dealt with a lot more than me I'm sure. Yes, I know. She's not conventional.
