MOOD MUSIC MONDAY

One of my all-time favorite artists is the very talented and versatile Eric Clapton. Although I like all of his renderings, one of my favorites is his Tears In Heaven. I hadn't heard Eric Clapton in a long time, but last night at The Tail Twister Titty Bar it was selected on the jukebox several times by patrons. The words kinda get to you, even a hard-ass attorney like myself, especially after three double martinis!

Tears In Heaven
by Eric Clapton and Will Jennings

Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven?
Would it be the same
If I saw you in heaven?

I must be strong
And carry on,
'Cause I know I don't belong
Here in heaven.

Would you hold my hand
If I saw you in heaven?
Would you help me stand
If I saw you in heaven?

I'll find my way
Through night and day,
'Cause I know I just can't stay
Here in heaven.

Time can bring you down,
Time can bend your knees.
Time can break your heart,
Have you begging please, begging please.

Beyond the door,
There's peace I'm sure,
And I know there'll be no more
Tears in heaven.

Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven?
Would it be the same
If I saw you in heaven?

I must be strong
And carry on,
'Cause I know I don't belong
Here in heaven.

Let's give it up for ERIC CLAPTON!!!

My understanding is that he wrote this song when his son died


S'io credesse che mia risposta fosse
A persona che mai tornasse al mondo,
Questa fiamma staria senza piu scosse.
Ma perciocche giammai di questo fondo
Non torno vivo alcun, s'i'odo il vero,
Senza tema d'infamia ti rispondo
.

Hey [blog luke69iner]...

I didn't know that, but I certainly appreciate you pointing it out! The song will mean more to me from now on when I hear it!
