Lonely Highways
Lonely Byways
Lonely Kitchen


lonely highways, lonely byways
lonely streets and avenues
 
lonely library, lonely shops
lonely kitchen without you

lonely window looking out on lonely tree
I miss you, darling, you’re not with me

you can’t be

lonely dying 
even though we were near
you had to go alone 
you left without fear
I still feel you near 
I still shed tears 

lonely highways, lonely byways 
lonely streets and avenues 

lonely library
you loved reading
lonely shops
you loved shopping
lonely kitchen without you
lonely tea kettle 
never used without you

lonely window looking out on lonely tree
I miss you, darling, you’re not with me 

you can’t be

lonely dying 
even though we were near
you had to go alone 
you left without fear
I still feel you near 
I still shed tears 

I miss you, darling 
I miss you, my dear 

I miss your laughter
I still shed tears 

I miss you, darling 
I miss you, my dear

I miss your laughter
I still shed tears 

lonely lonely highways, lonely byways 
lonely streets and avenues 

lonely library, lonely shops
lonely kitchen without you

Songs about Death,
about Grief, Grieving,
Songs about
Sadness and Loss.

Life comes. Life goes.
We know this.
And we know that if we love,
there can be deep grief -
the grief that comes from loss.

A song about death,
about grief and grieving,
sadness and loss -
those songs come
from the heart,
both hurt and soothe.

THE STORY

A friend wrote to tell me of the loss of a friend, the only friend who lived close by. He should write a Lonely Highway song, he said.

I sat down and started writing.

lonely highways, lonely byways
lonely streets and avenues


Soon I came to

lonely kitchen

The words kept coming.

A few minutes later, I opened Audacity, a little sound recording program. I recorded the piece, as it was fresh inside me.

I did not notice the cat curled beside me, purring.

I tried recording again later, no cat beside me - but the feeling wasn't there. So I have left most of the original recording.

And that's the story of how Lonely Highways, Lonely Kitchen came to be.

My friend, by the way, went on, soon after, to write a love song.

The creative flow - amazing.
