"Careless Love" as written by and Preston Foster....
I wrote a careless love
"Love me not for I'm above
Above a cloud all flat and white
And with another love tonight"

And then a careless love
By weighty cloud above
Was ground into the floor
To loving breathe no more

Lady as I leave you
Limp on the floor
Distorting our voices
Slamming the door

I say sorry
I say bye bye
I say miss you
I say cry cry

    General Commentoh my, this song is so beautiful. the droning notes distantly in the background, coupled with the kind of hollow, lonely and unrestrained quality of his voice in addition to the cadences throughout the song remind me of a hymn.
