Life goes on, but each of us have things that are more important to us -- and sometimes, just sometimes, you find a song that says it just right!
First, from GORDON LIGHTFOOT, the song "IF CHILDREN HAD WINGS" from his "ENDLESS WIRE" Album (I have the old LP from way back - copyright 1969 Moose Music)
"There's a love I hold dear
and it shines through each year
And it makes things seem different somehow
It's for better or worse
It's for people who thirst
for a love that burns brighter right now
"And it shines on and on 'til all sadness is gone
and if children had wings I
would sing them their song
Second, from DAN FOGELBERG, the song "THE SAND AND THE FOAM" from his "THE INNOCENT AGE" Album copyright 1981 Hickory Grove Music
"Time stills the singing
A child holds so dear
And I'm just beginning to hear
Gone are the pathways
The child followed home
Gone, like the sand and the foam
Gone, like the sand
Gone, like the sand and the foam"
Third, from PHIL COLLINS, the song "SURVIVORS" from his "BOTH SIDES" Album copyright 1993 Atlantic Recording Corporation
"When all is said and done
we'll find someday
we can forget all this
somehow, some way
"And as long as I'm here
there'll be no worries any more
and all these promises I'm making now
I'll hold each day
"So don't ever, don't ever, don't forget
that I never, never meant to break your heart
all I ever wanted was to stand beside you
survivors in the night
"We are survivors in the night"
Ya' know -- I wonder if we ever know what the singer/songwriter exactly meant in a song (unless they tell you) -- but each listener may have their own interpretation in their very own life!
For me - It is FAMILY .... and FAMILY .... and those really true FRIENDS!
