Has it been 10 years!





Has it really been 10 years since Grant left us?
I try imagine what he would have achieved,
the music he would have made, such a loss.
I can remember when I heard, the conversations
I had with friends, the sadness.

But like love, life goes on and on
and like that beautiful song he penned
How I miss your quiet , quiet heart.

Quiet Heart - Grant McClennan

The heater's on
The windows are thin
I'm trying hard to keep this warmth in

I turn to her, she's sound asleep
Someplace I don't know
Doesn't matter how far you've come
You've always got further to go

I tried to tell you, yeah
I can only say it when we're apart
About this storm inside of me
And how I miss your quiet, quiet, quiet heart

Two hours on
My eyes are open
There's bad blood between us

And what did I say that made you cry?
Our dream won't die
Doesn't matter how far you come
You've always got further to go

I tried to tell you, yeah
I can only say it when we're apart
About this storm inside of me
And how I miss your quiet, quiet, quiet heart

What is that light? That small red light
Scorpio rising
Doesn't matter how far you come
You've always got further to go

I tried to tell you, yeah
I can only say it when we're apart
About this storm inside of me
And how I miss your heart

I, I tried to tell her, yeah
I can only say it when we're apart
About this storm inside of me
And how I miss her quiet, quiet, quiet heart

Damn, what a song.

Played Finding You today and it was all I could do not to cry.

How Grant is missed, even way over here in Richmond, Virginia.

Thanks for remembering, and extra thanks for all of the wonderful music that you've introduced to me.

Still look up from my computer some days and remember the shock of Grant's passing and miss his presence. It's a smaller world without him.
