"My Heart" as written by and Neil Young....
Down in the valley the sheperd sees
His flock is close at hand
And in the night sky a star is falling down
From someone's hand

Somewhere, somehwere,
I gotta get somewhere
It's not too late, it's not too late
I've got to get somewhere

This time I will take the lead somehow
This time you won't have to show me how

When dreams come crashing down like trees
I don't know what love can do
When life is hanging in the breeze
I don't know what love can do

My heart, my heart
I've got to keep my heart
It's not too late, it's not too late
I've got to keep my heart

My love, I will give to you, it's true
Although I'm not sure what love can do

Somehwere, somewhere
I've got to get somewhere
It's not too late, it's not too late
I've got to get somewhere

Somewhere someone has a dream come true
Somehow someone has a dream come true

    My OpinionKurt Cobain quoted Young in his suicide note ("It's better to burn out than to fade away"), and it allegedly struck Young hard with disappointment, anger, frustration, and sadness. Having lived most of my life being completely misunderstood, I still can only imagine the horror that such a "shout out" would do. Cobain seems to haunt the entire "Sleeps with Angels" album. This is one of the loveliest ballads of almost-dead hope (and resolution to find it even though it appears to be nowhere) that I’ve ever heard. Gorgeous track. Thank you, Neil.
