"Gone"- The Head and The Heart
Every now and then I stumble across a song that so perfectly describes a season, a feeling, a moment, that I am entirely convinced the songwriter has been secretly following me. Watching me interact with others. Taking notes on the way my voice changes when I talk about you. The faces I make when I am driving alone. The words I write when the rest of the world is asleep…
This is that song. The honest tones of forgetting, or attempting to. The epic conclusion of strings and regret. And all of the swear words along the way. If only I knew these fellas were following me around, I would have asked them to join me for coffee. Clearly we have some things in common.
Gone are the days when the wind would brush my face
Gone are the days when you’re the wind
Gone are the days when your heavy heart is worn on my sleeve
Love is like a precious plant. You can’t just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think it’s going to get on by itself. You’ve got to keep on watering it. You’ve got to really look after it and nurture it.

Johnny Cash died 11 years ago today. Look back at iconic photos of the Man in Black
Is that where the U2 album came from that’s on my iTunes right now
Time was passing like a hand waving from a train I wanted to be on.
I hope you never have to think about anything as much as I think about you.

Here’s Looking at You, Kid - The Gaslight Anthem
But boys will be boys and girls have those eyes
That will cut you to ribbons sometimes
And all you can do is just wait by the moon
And bleed if it’s what she says you ought to do
