I can’t even listen to this song when it comes on the radio. I’ve always wanted to like it, the music’s hauntingly beautiful but the story is so sad. Last thing I need busting into my already emotion primed brain is a hit of heavy melancholy. But I loooooove this version. Love. And I love the painted fox piano. And especially that this guy is out there on the street killing a current song as a senior. Sometimes I get a bit freaked out about getting older. ‘What’s left?!’, I ponder anxiously. Well… everything.
It’s not over til it’s over. Enjoy. (PS. How he smiles at the end is so very heartening.)
