About "I Can't Go On"

I Can’t Go On
Lyrics: D. Lynn Young-Freitag (later McLeod) aka Astralynn
Music: JD “redkirk” McLeod
7 Sept 1981
Lynn wrote these words while we worried if each of us would ever have a future, not to mention with each other. We were unhappy in our marriages and just wanted love and happiness. Both of our spouses had rained abuse on us. She was constantly being beaten physically. I was having my head and soul turned inside out with verbal and psychological abuse. Four years later we had shed our abusive spouses and married each other. I put music to her words the same day she gave them to me.
Acoustic (Ukulele): 7 Sept 1981.
Written at: Governors Island, NY
