I Do So Love This



Love the song

The lyrics

The halting, plaintive voice

That catch in the throat

The sentiment

The truth of it

Yeah

Had me an angel or two

Gone and died

This broken heart

Needs an angel

(And I’m not alone in this)

Someone to pull me through

The midnight rain

Nice. Do you know the John Prine song, "Angel from Montgomery" (either his or Bonnie Raitt's version)?

That's the thing, isn't it, Yvonne? No matter how well we've lived, how fat the wallet, how grand the praise, none of that really matters if we don't have that someone to see us through til morning.

Yes, SAW, I rather like that song (Bonnie Raitt and John Prine actually toured together performing that song).

Yeah, just give me one thing I can hold on to/believe in...

(It just so happens I got a "John Prine encounter" story and a pretty darn satisfying Montgomery, Alabama story, too)

You just tripped all sortsa triggers...

This is what I need to hear right at this moment. Soft mellow music that touches the heart. Thanks for sharing.

Yes, I wonder if love ever comes again after loss or heartache. I am 56 and being alone it seems like forever with no witness to my life events seems rather dull.
