the magical bruce |
bruce's songs ( especially this one ) possess some strange power to take you where he wants, and make you experience what he wants..and no matter how many times you hear it, over and over again, every time you can feel something special.. and there are no words to describe that feeling..
can't help crying |
This is one of the most touching songs I have ever heard..its honesty opens up all the problems that can overwhelm everything we ever loved, wanted or dreamed of. It sings about a life not lived, a dream not come true, even it started off as a great love. One has to imagine some US outback, a small town "where mister when you're young" where there are no many opportunities..then you find Mary but your troubles are not just not over, but they have just begun. No one would like to live of a memory..everybody deserves a chance in life and love, and not to think that dream is a lie. Live now, not in the past...that is the key. God bless your songs, Bruce.
Now the river is dry |
Not until I listened to this song
I won't realize what a magic instrument the harmonica is
And I always love BS's honesty expressed in his lyrics
"Now those memories come back to haunt me
they haunt me like a curse
Is a dream a lie if it don't come true
Or is it something worse"
It's one of the greatest song I've ever heard
Besides I've got nothing to say
Most affecting song ever heard |
Maybe one gets the message only at the third listen - we all make a big mistake in our life and suffer forever .... think about this if somebody asks You for forgivness .....
dream or a lie |
Profound lyrics. Good reminder of how we can make a good thing go wrong if we let our impatience get in the way--lust is not a bad thing in the right context, but it needs to wait until after the wedding smile, the protection of one who will be with you forever.
