Speaking of you and Sandy's loss earlier about her grandmother passing away, I thought of this tune. I wish I had a way to record it and play for you myself. Yet, I know you like poetry, and I thought you might like this. Its about an elderly woman who lives alone in a small town. Its a real pretty tune, its not hard rock or anything.

Elderly woman behind the counter of a small town by Pearl Jam


I seem to recognize your face
Haunting, familiar, yet I can?t seem to place it
Cannot find the candle of thought to light your name
Lifetimes are catching up with me
All these changes taking place,
I wish I?d seen the place
But no one?s ever taken me
Hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away... (2x)

I swear I recognize your breath
Memories like fingerprints are slowly raising
Me you wouldn?t recall, for
I?m not my former
It?s hard when you?re stuck upon the shelf
I changed by not changing at all, small town predicts my fate
Perhaps that?s what no one wants to see
I just want to scream...hello...
My God it?s been so long, never dreamed you?d return
But now here you are, and here I am
Hearts and thoughts they fade...away...

Hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away... (2x)
Hearts and thoughts they fade...away...
Hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away... (3x)
Hearts and thoughts they fade...
