"Alternate Ending" as written by and Toni Stern Carole King....
In the darkness, under the stars, With enough warning, to pull off to the side, in time

In the end, was there anyone to share in your joy?
I woke up one day...and realized it was already over

Back On the highway, under the moon, my final moments, still wondering about you...

In the end, was there anyone to share in your joy?
I woke up for years without you, to realize it was already over, for me

Now making amendments... to the dream / story...
Changing the ending, as I would like it, to be

We were together, in a memory
And We live forever, in finality.

Holding on...To a dream...
When the end... couldn't come slow enough for me.

Holding on...

    Song MeaningThis song has a whole new meaning now that David has passed on. Irony is a cruel mistress as his lyrics always played with the idea of death and endings even though his life was filled with hope and aspirations. "Back on the highway... my final moments" how was one to know what faith awaits him. R.I.P. David, you will forever be missed but your music will forever leave a legacy. A brilliant musician
