I hope lots more people look at this video; it is very moving!

The words are exactly what I was trying to say in my thread about "The Laundry Room."

So make it real,
make it something you can feel
look up higher
for something cool to quench the fire
Let the raindrops fall
in the form of prayer
Let the river rise
in the deeds we dare

River's gonna rise up,
Rain's gonna fall,
River's gonna rise up,
Rain's gonna fall
May 2019 be better for us all.

Re: Song Suggestions "High Sierra" Boz Scaggs

The lyrics of this song are pretty vague, but when you add the beautiful melody, it reminds me very much of Jack and Ennis's time apart those four long years:

Sierra, Boz Scaggs

What about the one who said he loved you
What about the one who said he cared
Don't bother trying to find him
Way up in the icy air

Oh, you played with his heartstrings
And you played without a care
But not up in the High Sierra
You won't play his heart out there

The angels lay their clouds across his sky
They line up for him every night
Some have wings and others sing
The rest do lazy ballets in the air

There he's got a bird to give him warning
And he's got a lookout too
The beauty of the High Sierra
And she's looking out for you

The angels lay their clouds across his sky
They line up for him every night
Some have wings and others sing
The rest do lazy ballets in the air

What about the one who said he loved you
What about the one who said he cared
He's up in the High Sierra
But don't bother looking there.
May 2019 be better for us all.

What an excellent suggestion and find!  It fits perfectly!  :)

I'd like to suggest adding "Since I Met You Baby" sung by Ivory Joe Hunter. There is also a nice Mexican version sung by Freddy Fender-- "Desde Que Reconosco".  :)

Welcome kenzoid! We'll definitely check out your suggestions!!

I listened to a fantastic band on the way home from the airport tonight. It was called Stornoway...that's coincidentally the name of a town in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland that I visited this summer. The song I heard was "I Saw You Blink" and here are the lyrics. It reminded me a lot of our dear Ennis. I urge you to give this a listen.

I caught the sun on my way home
my way home

I caught the sun on my way home
my way home
when i got lost in thinking
and i missed the train
on my way home
on my way home
i missed the train on my way home
my way home
cos i was stil day dreaming

but i need to know
are you the one?
are you the one?
cos i need to know
are you the one ive been waiting for?

i saw you blink
and i missed your eyes your blue eyes
mmmmm
i saw you blink and i missed your eyes
your blue eyes
when we were talki ng upstairs
and what would i see
if i llooked in through the window?
what i've seen if id looked deep through the coloured glass in through the window

but i need to know
are you the one?
are you the one?
Cos i need to know
are you the one ive been waiting for

And i climbed up the hill when i got home
and faced up towards you
what are you thinking of then?
what are you thinking?

cos i need to know
are you the one?
are you the one?
cos i need to know
are you the one ive been waiting for
for so long
May 2019 be better for us all.

Listened to this beautiful song after my workout today and it seemed to be like the lake scene updated to this decade.  The first verse is sung by Emmylou Harris, and the words remind me so much of Jack. The second verse is sung by Mark Knopfler, an Ennis if I ever heard one. He even mumbles! The chorus is sung by both of them, and it made me cry:

If This is Goodbye

My famous last words
Are laying around in tatters
Sounding absurd
Whatever I try
But I love you
And that's all that really matters
If this is goodbye
If this is goodbye

Your bright shining sun
Would light up the way before me
You were the one
Made me feel I could fly
And I love you
Whatever is waiting for me
If this is goodbye
If this is goodbye

Who knows how long we've got
Or what were made out of
Who knows if there's a plan or not
There is our love
I know there is our love

My famous last words
Could never tell the story
Spinning unheard
In the dark of the sky
But I love you
And this is our glory
If this is goodbye
If this is goodbye

May 2019 be better for us all.
