We have a friend who is a musician. He writes beautiful songs like no one else I have ever heard. His name is Brian Hall. He used to play out quite a bit but he is a little shy and our 'music scene' here has always left a lot to be desired. He works at the local Barnes and Noble now trying to help people find pleasing music. He is one of the nicest people I have ever known, scratch that, he is the nicest person I have ever known.
He played this song live once and I got shivers and well, really cannot explain the way I felt about this song. When he was through someone said something like 'thanks for depressing us Brian'. I never heard him play it again. He probably truly felt bad that he depressed someone. I told him once that I loved that song and I wished it was on one of his c.d.'s. When we were in the midst of recording our second album in his studio he gave me a copy of the song on one of the master c.d.s.
I was touched that he made me a copy and have played it for others who look at me like I am crazy when I say that I love this song. PLEASE listen to it. If you don't see the beauty in this song, I am sorry for you. It was not easy to find a way to get the song on the internet for you to hear, I would appreciate you giving it a listen. I hope it doesn't depress you, but it is the saddest song I have ever heard.
