This is one of the most beautiful and heartbreaking songs I’ve ever heard. I know I’ve used that line already with Cohen’s “Bird on the Wire”, and Fleetwood Mac’s “Silver Springs,” but this Cowboy Junkies track may just take the cake. Something about those kind of “Day in the Life” songs that always gets me. It’s so hauntingly honest, so effortlessly tragic, and yet still delves into one last bit of humanity and caring before completely ripping your heart out. I may have gotten a bit carried away, but listen for yourself, you’ll see what I mean.
