    Lyrics for Jakob

    Hi Jakob,
    <br>
    <br>I could not reply to your post. But here they are: (found them on the Net)
    <br>
    <br>Empty Chairs (by Don McLean)
    <br>
    <br>I feel the trembling tingle of a sleepless night
    <br>Creep through my fingers and the moon is bright
    <br>Beams of blue come flickering through my window pane
    <br>Like gypsy moths that dance around a candle flame
    <br>
    <br>And I wonder if you know
    <br>That I never understood
    <br>That although you said you'd go
    <br>Until you did I never thought you would
    <br>
    <br>Moonlight used to bathe the contours of your face
    <br>While chestnut hair fell all around the pillow case
    <br>And the fragrance of your flowers rest beneath my head
    <br>A sympathy bouquet left with the love that's dead
    <br>
    <br>And I wonder if you know
    <br>That I never understood
    <br>That although you said you'd go
    <br>Until you did I never thought you would
    <br>
    <br>I never thought the words you said were true
    <br>I never thought you said just what you meant
    <br>I never knew how much I needed you
    <br>I never thought you'd leave
    <br>Until you went
    <br>
    <br>Morning comes and morning goes with no regret
    <br>And evening brings the memories I can't forget
    <br>Empty rooms that echo as I climb the stairs
    <br>And empty clothes that drape and fall on empty chairs
    <br>
    <br>And I wonder if you know
    <br>That I never understood
    <br>That although you said you'd go
    <br>Until you did I never thought you would

    <br>

    I've just been reading the lyrics while listening to Garths version.
    <br>
    <br>It's just such a sad song. The kind you want to listen to, when you have heartaches.

    RE: Lyrics for Jakob

    Hi Jakob (& Brian),
    <br>
    <br>To be honest, I had never even heard of this song. Let alone that I knew Garth had covered it... I like the lyrics very much too and I would like to hear the Garth version.
    <br>
    <br>I hope you don't have a heartache at the moment, and if you do, that it will heal quickly :).

    No, luckily I don't have a heartache now.
    <br>
    <br>Not long ago though.

    Marjolijn,
    <br>
    <br>I have Garth's version on video on Don McLean's special, so when we meet up we'll have to make sure you can catch up somehow with a lot of these things you've missed!
    <br>
    <br>It's a beautiful performance and (checks to make sure Don isn't reading) superior to the original IMHO. There is a point in the performance when it becomes *so* clear to whom Garth is singing - when he raises his eyes to Heaven, we know he's singing to his Mom.

    Glad you got over your heartache, Jakob :).
    <br>
    <br>Angela,
    <br>That would be great! Do you have a possibility to copy video tapes? In case you do, I will bring about 6 empty ones, would that be enough you think? ;)
    <br>Looking forward to seeing you some time in Jan. 2001! :)
