    For me, it's about what was going on in my life when I heard it. What it resonated with. For that reason, I find it very difficult to listen to Jeff Buckley's 'Last Goodbye.'

    These days, Bootsy speaks wisely: if you fake the funk, your nose gots to grow.

    I played that song Friday night, likely the only time ever in my life I'll do so.

    Awfully different without you
    Don't get around much anymore

    or,

    Well it's too bad, and it's too sad
    but I'm in love with you

    or,

    Yes, I wish that for just one time you could stand inside my shoes
    You'd know what a drag it is to see you

    or,

    Don't send me no more letters no
    Not unless you mail them
    From Desolation Row

    or,

    When I'm watchin' my tv and a man comes on and tell me
    How white my shirts can be
    But, he can't be a man 'cause he doesn't smoke
    The same cigarettes as me

    Don't let the darkness take; 'em. Don't make them feel forsaken. Just lead 'em safely to the light. "
    By Shaver I think but these words actually were written by Eddy I believe.

    Come and see
    I swear, but now I'm playing time
    Against my troubles, oh
    I'm coming slow but speeding

    I ain't got time for make believin'
    My time is short but I'm here to stay
    And no politics will cure the grieving
    So I choose my life and I choose it my way

    The one song who's lyrics have stuck with me is The Beatles 'In my life'

    There are places I'll remember
    All my life, though some have changed
    Some forever, not for better
    Some have gone and some remain
    All these places have their moments
    With lovers and friends I still can recall
    Some are dead and some are living
    In my life I've loved them all.....

    In the clearing stands a boxer
    And a fighter by his trade
    And he carries the reminders
    Of ev'ry glove that laid him down
    Or cut him till he cried out
    In his anger and his shame
    "I am leaving, I am leaving"
    But the fighter still remains
