"Everybody" as written by and Richard Ashcroft....
Cold morning
I was looking out it was a cold day

songbird was drinking from a table
but songbird you just flew away

everybody's gotta feel the weight of death sometimes
and find out what it's like to be left behind
sometimes you don't get a chance to ask where or why

so let it break the magic beauty of your fragile mind
and let it break the magic beauty of your fragile mind

it's not a sign of weakness
when your searching for the places where the memories flow
there may come a time
when you rearrange and may leave those memories
you've gotta let them go

everybody's gotta feel the weight of death sometimes
and find out what it's like to be left behind
sometimes you don't get a chance to ask where or why

let it break the magic beauty of your fragile mind
let it break the magic beauty of your fragile mind

everybody's gotta feel the weight of death sometimes
and find out what it's like to be left behind
sometimes you don't get a chance to ask where or why

let it break the magic beauty of your fragile mind
let it break the magic beauty of your fragile mind

stay strong
move on
keep on

    General Commentthis very sad song, one i cant listen to. it's coping with memories of a special one and being able to move to another place, without being reminded of the past

    General CommentAn incredibly moving and beautiful song. "Sometimes you don't get a chance to ask where or why". And sometimes you don't get a chance to cope or move on. Nobody can say for certain, how they will handle the death of a loved one. Especially the death of a spouse. This song brings me to tears. I lost my very loved husband and was unable to cope and move on. After 10 years, life placed me in the path of a man who in 5 months time, brought me back into the life of the living and helped me to put those memories behind me and move forward. I came to love this man deeply and he has become my best friend and the most important person in my life. His time left with me is uncertain. His health is deteriorating rapidly. I fully understand what it's like to be the one left behind. My husband had my heart and took it with him when he died. I finally found it again and gave it to someone just to have it taken again. I have felt the weight of death for what I thought was far to long. But it seems life has a different opinion on that one. I know life gives no guarantees but If and when I find my heart again, I believe I will just hold on to it. I'm afraid I cannot afford to give it away again.
