What a pretty but melancholy song. Truer words never spoken. Such a poignant visual.

This is one of the VERY best songs I have EVER heard. And I do NOT mean it is one of the very best JMT songs I have ever heard… I MEAN it is one of the very best songs I have heard… EVER… period! And this is one of the VERY best albums that I have EVER owned! And I am 64 damn years old! So I have owned a lot of very damn good albums! As a 64 year old Baby boomer, I have heard a lot of very very good songs and a lot of very good albums… and still… this song still makes me cry. Thank you, so very very much, James Michael Taylor, for your music! Your music has meant a lot to me in my Life!

I have a new love Of course she doesn’t know How can a work of art Know when lovers come and go And when the artist is the art! My eyes are the eyes of the beholder And my eyes are the eyes of the world… …when the artist is the art…
