"Adam's Song" as written by and Rodney Crowell....
We don't want to say goodbye.
We don't want to feel that empty.
But it's time to face the dawn head on.
Then there's something in the wind when the days go getting shorter
And the nights run cold and clear
Down here.

We'll take each new day to give what we need to do our part
While were learning how to live
With a lifelong broken heart.

And we never will forget.
It's a privilege to remember.
The sound of days gone past will last.
We can see you in the stars
Come some vivid night in November
And with the last few leaves that fall,
Recal.l

Surely, each new day will give
What we need to do our part
To keep learning how to live
With a lifelong broken heart.

Oh, you beautiful one,
So clearly a gift.
Life had designs of its own
To set you adrift.

So go lightly where you must,
Travel soft upon new wings.
You will never be alone.
Go on.
When we cannot understand,
When we cannot find new meaning,
We'll seek out the ones you loved
And love.

Taking each new day to give
What we need to do our part.
We'll keep learning how to live
With a lifelong broken heart.
We're just learning how to live
With a lifelong broken heart.
