I met her down in Reno
She was opening for the band
She smiled at me like she knew me
And gently shook my hand

Telling me that she had only
Ever written one sad song
No matter how she tried
The words always came out wrong

The melody was
strong Soaring like a burning flame
But every time she sang it
It never came out the same

She stepped up on the stage
Started with 'Blue eyes cryin’ in the rain.'
Then 'Will you love me tomorrow.'
Sang with honest tears and pain

Then she stopped and whispered
This one’s mine I’ll try my best
She sang about what we have lost
And what little we have gained

The simple joys of life
And bearing all the pain
‘bout who we loved
And why we let some go OH
And why the best in us
We‘re so afraid to show
The chorus soared with what has gone away
And what remains
While we live on with broken hearts

Sweet words and a voice
Just like the angels sing
With words so true
I can still hear them ring
Every verse so pure perfect
They made you cry
And now I reflect on
All the hard years gone by
God I wish that I could remember that song.
God I wish that I could remember that song.

Why is doing what you love the hardest thing to do? Is it because failing what you thought defined you would be too devastating a thing from which to recover? If so, we stay where mere accident has left us.

Remembered song
Sorry for the format problem in 2nd verse line 1 and 2. I couldn't fix it in the editor.

I DO remember Ken~
Love this Ken...I miss you around here...especially your song challenges...can't seem to write one since you've left!

Would love to hear it sung...have you performed it yet?

Many of your songs
are also thus remembered ... fondly, if not well. I enjoyed this one, and if all I ultimately remember is the general message, it's enough to feed inspiration. Thanks.
