This is song number 14. To listen to it, please click here: Gone Away
You saw us grieving
So many tears were cried
So much hurt inside
Because you couldn’t stay
I pray every day
Though it’s hard to deal with the knowledge
That you will never pass this way again
We will carry on and we will manage
We’ll always have the love that you gave us when
You were here
And living with no fear
Enjoying what you did
Making the most of it
The light you brought
The good fight you fought
That you always thought
You would win
This country scenery
Brings back another day
So many games to play
Such as these
Are floating on the breeze
And all the time we had together
Was a wonder and a gift for which I’m glad
The joy you gave will sustain us whether
Times are good or times are bad
Don’t say goodbye
When I can’t look in your eye
And have you grasp my hand
And know you understand
All I feel
All this love so real
That death could never steal

Very moving Brendan.
Hi Yvonne … thanks very much.
Thanks, AP … glad you like it.
Good morning Brendan. The words of this song depict profound feelings. It is beautifully moving.
Forgive my audacity, but I feel the song would sound correspondingly deep if your wife’s vocals were as clear/distinct as yours.
Thanks very much, Shermeen. Yes, I agree that Pauline’s voice should be more prominent … she was sitting farther from the small device we use for recording. Maybe we’ll redo it.
We expect to have proper recordings of several songs on YouTube within the next month or so … I’ll let everyone know when that happens. We have some talented people on board now.
Brendano, I like this: gentle tune and gentle words (and I can read off the chords throughout!) This is a song that I would happily play along with – there is a lot of comfort in the words and music. Good luck with the recordings.
Thanks, PapaG … I was a bit disappointed with the way this turned out, to be honest … it’s one of the ones I’m least happy with.
