"Reflections Of My Life" as written by William Campbell and Thomas Mc Aleese....
The changing of sunlight to moonlight
Reflections of my life
Oh, how they fill my eyes

The greetings of people in trouble
Reflections of my life
Oh, how they fill my eyes

Oh, my sorrows
Sad tomorrows
Take me back to my own home

Oh, my crying (Oh, my crying)
Feel I'm dying, dying
Take me back to my own home

I'm changing, arranging
I'm changing
I'm changing everything
Everything around me

The world is
A bad place
A bad place
A terrible place to live
Oh, but I don't want to die

Oh, my sorrows
Sad tomorrows
Take me back to my own home

Oh, my crying (Oh, my crying)
Feel I'm dying, dying
Take me back to my own home

Oh, my sorrows
Sad tomorrows
Take me back to my own home

    General CommentFor an especially poignant version of this song, check out Dean Ford's 2014 acoustic version on YouTube. It's intercut with footage from the original recording. The cello will break your heart, as will seeing the lead singer as a much older man singing the lyrics he wrote back in 1969. Especially plaintive is the line “The world is a bad place / A bad place / A terrible place to live / Oh, but I don't want to die.” That’s the human condition, isn’t it? For while it’s true that the world is a badly broken place, it is also a beautiful place, a wondrous place. And so we celebrate! This song will haunt you with its beauty!
