Song of the week



"Last Tears"
These are the last tears I'm gonna cry for you
My cryin's through I'm moving on
I don't regret and won't forget
A single thing that we went through
But there are the last tears I'm gonna cry for you
You take things so much easier than I do
And you could live your life without me if you had to
And you believe that in the end it all works out right
And I might if not for you
And if you ask one which one lives just alone for love
I do
There was a time when all signs pointed to the warm south
The planets all lined up and built a new house
And everything we talked about felt like a prophecy
And when you looked at me they all came true
And if you asked which one wants to go the distance
I do
I'm gonna rack my mind one last time until I cannot think
I'm gonna dip into your memory and take a good stiff drink
And when I'm drunk on the last drop of sadness about how we went wrong
I'm gonna play this song
Make some coffee black and strong
Give thanks for healing time
And finally make up my mind

The words are poignant.

Am not big on Country and Western (normally) but there is a simplicity...a back to basics way singers write their lyrics.. and it does, espesh on this ocassion, relate.

One of my favourite songs is Misty by Ray Stevens. Not something I would have expected to be in my collection (prior to hearing it) but I love it and Jolene by Dolly Parton.

There goes my street cred down the drain. Ha!

Mandy, I suppose this is Country and western strictly speaking - though a lot of the Indigo Girls stuff I enjoy could not be classified as such. glad you enjoyed.

Sally - in a way I am sorry you can relate so strongly to this. Thinking of you. Hugs.
