    The Lonely Man (Closing Them to The Incredible Hulk) ...Brings me to near weeping stage every time I hear it. I defy anyone to listen to the whole thing and not start thinking about their past....

    IIRC He was not far from death when he sang this and his wife of 35 years had died a few months prior.

    "If You Could Read My Mind" by Gordon Lightfoot. The Cash version is even more troubling IMO.

    Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
    And as I climb into an empty bed
    Oh well. Enough said.

    I know it's over - still I cling
    I don't know where else I can go

    Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
    See, the sea wants to take me
    The knife wants to slit me
    Do you think you can help me ?

    Sad veiled bride, please be happy
    Handsome groom, give her room
    Loud, loutish lover, treat her kindly

    (Though she needs you
    More than she loves you)

    And I know it's over - still I cling
    I don't know where else I can go

    Over and over and
    over and over


    I know it's over
    And it never really began
    But in my heart it was so real

    And you even spoke to me, and said :
    "If you're so funny,
    Then why are you on your own tonight ?
    And
    if you're so clever,
    Then why are you on your own tonight ?
    If you're so very entertaining,
    Then why are you on your own tonight ?
    If you're so very good-looking,
    Why do you sleep alone tonight ?

    I know ...
    'Cause tonight is just like any other night
    That's why you're on your own tonight
    With your triumphs and your charms
    While they're in each other's arms..."

    It's so easy to laugh
    It's so easy to hate
    It takes strength to be gentle and kind

    Over, over, over, over

    It's so easy to laugh
    It's so easy to hate
    It takes guts to be gentle and kind


    Love is Natural and Real
    But not for you, my love
    Not tonight, my love

    Love is Natural and Real
    But not for such as you and I, my love

    Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
    Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
    Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head ....
