When you're on a merry-go-round, you miss a lot of the scenery.

It's very difficult for me to say 'I love you' but to sing 'I love you' for me is easier.

Songs are life in 80 words or less.

Happy birthday to Neil Diamond…”Dry Your Eyes”…a song written in memory of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Dry your eyes and take your song out
It’s a newborn afternoon
And if you can’t recall the singer
You can still recall the tune

Dry your eyes and play it slowly
Like you’re marching off to war
Sing it like you know he’d want it
Like we sang it once before

And from the center of the circle
To the midst of the waiting crowd
If it ever be forgotten
Sing it long and sing it loud
And come dry your eyes

And it taught us more about giving
Than we ever cared to know
But we came to find the secret
And we never let it go

And it was more than being holy
Oh it was less than being free
And if you can’t recall the reason
Can you hear the people sing

Right through the lightning and the thunder
To the dark side of the moon
To that distant falling angel
That descended much too soon
And come dry your eyes

Come dry your eyes
