    How odd that old songs can suddenly reappear after you haven't heard them for so long, and touch your soul almost as deeply as first time? I guess Candy Darling did walk away from so many others, and now Lou. "But there are things that we can't know maybe there's something over there; Some other world that we don't know about...I know you hate this mystic shit...". I hope there is such a place, and all such strange, graceful and beautiful folk are there in harmony and peace, with no more pain. X

    This may be the saddest song ever written. Such deep compassion.
