let the music be your master will you heed the master's call

Ever since I was a little kid music has been my thing (listening not playing). There is always music playing in my head and I couldn't imagine my life without it. To me music is more than chords and lyrics, it's the soundtrack of my life. Almost all my memories have a song attached to it -- whether because a particular lyric resonated with me or maybe the song was actually playing. More than anything else, a song can bring me back to a specific moment in time. It can make me smile (riding in the car with my beloved Uncle Rich, singing "My Ding-A-Ling) , it can make me cry (thinking of Liz every time I hear "Back on the Chain Gang") but it always makes me remember. And sometimes there is no specific memory, just a good feeling from hearing the song. Like this song from 1973 by the Canadian band, Edward Bear. I remember seeing them on "American Bandstand" and making my dad buy me the 45 that very afternoon. I still have the 45 too. Thanks for the memories Edward Bear (whoever, wherever you are).

Last Song

Did you know I go to sleep and
Leave the lights on
Hoping you'd come by and know
That I was home and still awake
But two years go by and still
My light's on
This is hard for me to say
But it is all that I can take

It's the last song I'll ever write for you
It's the last time that I'll tell you
Just how much I really care
This is the last song I'll ever sing for you
You'll come looking for the light
And it won't be there
But I love you
Oh yes I do
Yes I do

All the times that I spent waiting
Wondering where you are
Always knew the time would come
When I would start to wonder why
Now the time is here
I don't know where you are
So I'll write you one more song
But it's the last time that I'll ever try

It's the last song I'll ever write for you
It's the last time that I'll tell you
Just how much I really care
This is the last song I'll ever sing for you
You'll come looking for the light
And it won't be there
But I love you
Oh yes I do
Yes I do

It's the last song I'll ever write for you
It's the last song I'll ever write for you
It's the last song I'll ever write for you
It's the last song I'll ever write for you

I enjoy the soundtrack to life too (when I can get the voices in my head to be quiet enough to hear it) and I've always liked this song. It's linked in my brain to "I'll Have to Say I Love You in a Song" by Jim Croce and "Your Song" by Elton John -- The birth, life, and death of love songs.
