THE SONG SPEAKS LOUD AND CLEAR. I AM A VIET NAM VET NOW LIVING OUTSIDE THE USA. THE LYRICS SPEAK TO THE FEELINGS STRIVINGS AND EMOTIONS OF THIS ONE TIME SOLDIER MICHAEL CHAI
Once he was |
I don't think another song has ever touched me the way Tim Buckley's "Once I was" did. Although I don't think I have actually heard it in maybe 20 years, it still plays in my head easily when I think about it. I remember exactly where I was when I heard he died...so young, so brilliant.
A classic |
Tim Buckley's "Once I Was" hit me so hard the first time I heard it, over thirty-five or so years ago. He sang the song from the bottom of his soul/sole about love, rejection, and memories. It still plays in my mind after so many years: "Will you ever...remember me."
