Hey y'all. I dunno what it is with me and sad songs, but they keep comin' outta me. Wrote it at work...and it was SO hard to find time for it, too. :rolleyes:
<br>Anyway, the more I read it, the more I hear Mr. Jackson in my head...kinda like his song, "Here In The Real World." Hopefully y'all know of that one. Ya know it's funny...three years ago I didn't know what Alan Jackson looked like. *pausing in reflection*..."Thank You, Garth for 'introducing' me!" :):cool::) Please Enjoy. :) (Any mention of the reference to Garth's TN town will be noted and quickly forgotten, LOL,...it just came OUT like that)

<br>
<br>She threw her suitcase in the car
<br>And cried, "You’ve gone too far"
<br>He tried to say, "I’m sorry" in reply
<br>But held his breath so he wouldn’t cry
<br>The radio sang as she drove away
<br>He closed his eyes and heard the music fade
<br>The empty arms that swung by his sides
<br>Picked up her memory and went inside
<br>
<br>She drove until she reached Goodlettsville
<br>Her dad was waiting when she rang the bell
<br>He said, "I got a letter with your name
<br>It’s from him, but read it anyway"
<br>It said, "Every time you hear our song
<br>Please stop and think of hanging on"
<br>He doesn’t know what else to do
<br>He’ll be the DJ of solitude
<br>
<br>On WLM, World’s Loneliest Man
<br>At twenty-four point seven
<br>Only has one song to hear
<br>The one she said would be theirs for years
<br>He’s praying she hears his call
<br>And tells him she’s forgiven all
<br>Until then his tears will silently fall
<br>At WLM
<br>
<br>He’s keeping his vigil clear
<br>He knows no one will bother him here
<br>All his time is devoted to
<br>Getting his message through
<br>With such a careful hand
<br>He puts the song on once again
<br>And slowly counts his lessons learned
<br>As he watches the record turn
<br>
<br>On WLM, World’s Loneliest Man

Oh puhleeeeeease! STEPH...did you say "Thanks for your time?" *stifles laughter* As if it was such a chore to read this...It should be us, thanking you! You're so talented...Um...since you seem to have overflowing talent, could you spare the excess? It'd be appreciated! This song..sad or not, it doesn't matter! It's great! Alan Jackson, step aside! Cliche? Never. I love the idea of this one..Thanks again for this lesson!
