may 1 #100happydays- day 22- the little things

Just driving around in the sun. Listening to songs I like and drinking a Starbucks. Wearing sandles and my new jeans. And a BBQ to end the lovely afternoon. Oh and a glass of Pinot Grigio.

A special one for today. 100 day song challenge: Day 3: A song that makes you cry

Easy one
Jeff Buckley
Last goodbye.
yep. tears. Always. 

Someone special introduced me to this amazing singer/songwriter. 

He also have me this song on a cd when we had our “last goodbye”. The lyrics summed up our relationship to a T. 

The fact that Jeff Buckley drowned tragically just makes it all sadder. Miss you JB. You too JB. 

  “Last Goodbye”

This is our last goodbye
I hate to feel the love between us die
But it’s over
Just hear this and then i’ll go
You gave me more to live for
More than you’ll ever know

This is our last embrace
Must I dream and always see your face
Why can’t we overcome this wall
Well, maybe it’s just because i didn’t know you at all

Kiss me, please kiss me
But kiss me out of desire, babe, and not consolation
You know it makes me so angry ’cause i know that in time
I’ll only make you cry, this is our last goodbye

Did you say ‘no, this can’t happen to me,’
And did you rush to the phone to call
Was there a voice unkind in the back of your mind
Saying maybe you didn’t know him at all
You didn’t know him at all, oh, you didn’t know

Well, the bells out in the church tower chime
Burning clues into this heart of mine
Thinking so hard on her soft eyes and the memories
Offer signs that it’s over… it’s over
