"my teacher died" as written by and Diane Cluck....
oh since my teacher died
i am a student now
of whom i cannot tell
of what i cannot tell...

i read his books for years
i've gone all through them
how i wanted one last fix
but he's not writing now
oh, my teacher died
i felt sorry
but i wasn't sorry

the night we said goodbye
i felt a crumbling school
my skin was sensitized
to air that rushed in cool
oh !
my teacher's eyes
were gentle as any man's have been

there are no superstars
there is no superman
there's only everyone
i learn from whom i can
oh, my teacher died
and i felt sorry
but i wasn't sorry...

my teacher died
and i'm a student now
of whom i cannot tell
of what i cannot tell !

    General CommentThis is one of the most interesting and moving lyrics I've come across for a very long time. The songs expresses so many layers of emotions: a sense of freedom, joy, sadness, love...

    The music, the small noises, the haunting 'choires' and the style of singing only adds to the complexity of the song. But, for the better, the complexity is not of a technical kind. I never feel that Cluck is showing off by writing smart lyrics. Her music is straightforward in a way that I appreciate very much.
