Songs of Love Lost

The one thing a song should administer is conviction. I think a song should envoke ones emotion.

My all-time favourite song that does this is by, not what I consider a country writer but more a gifted writer of pain. It goes like this ...

Hear that lonesome whippoorwill

That sounds too blue to fly

That midnight train is whining low

I'm so lonesome I could cry.

I've never seen a night so long

When time goes crawling by . . .

The moon just went behind a cloud

To hide its face and cry

Did you ever see a robin weep

When leaves began to die?

That means he's lost the will to live

I'm so lonesome I could cry

The silence of a falling star

Lights up a purple sky

And as I wonder where you are

I'm so lonesome I could cry.

And when I see the sign that points one way
The lot we used to pass by every day

Just walk away, Renee
You won't see me follow you back home
The empty sidewalks on my block are not the same
You're not to blame

From deep inside the tears that I'm forced to cry
From deep inside the pain that I chose to hide

Just walk away, Renee
You won't see me follow you back home
Now, as the rain beats down upon my weary eyes
For me, it cries

Just walk away, Renee
You won't see me follow you back home
Now, as the rain beats down upon my weary eyes
For me, it cries

Your name and mine inside a heart upon a wall
Still finds a way to haunt me though they're so small

Just walk away, Renee
You won't see me follow you back home
The empty sidewalks on my block are not the same
You're not to blame

Aretha Franklin - "Prove It"

Getting text or YouTube links to display properly can be a chore. There have been times when I had to bounce back and forth between the "bulleted list/left margin/center margin/right margin" options before I could just "paste" something. (And once in a great while, a box limited paste/post options will pop up, without the usual options toolbar. Aside from going back and forth over limited options, only to be told that none of them will work, it's best to "quit and retry" an hour/day later.) I used to just go with the "quote" option, but that's no fun; you too can be a "cursor" and get some action. :wink:

"Cursor" - One who curses while using the computer, especially when keystrokes/actions result in garbage or "syntax error"-like messages.;)

There's an alternate definition of "cursor.";)
