Vickie, good to know you are safe!
And that’s an interesting thought about what song we would choose for each other ;-)
As for me, you all know the story, I kinda didn't choose Hallelujah, it chose me!
So, in respect of that situation, if it turns out this song is not played at my funeral ... I'm simply not leaving ... :razz:

Science says our sun will eventually burn up and die and life here on Earth has a few hundred million years left, maybe at the most a billion. But nevermind, well before that happens I reckon mankind will be set up on a new 3rd rock from another sun in the goldilocks position somewhere in space. Rest assured, I feel certain that our descendants will have taken LC’s music with them. Just imagine that voice floating out among the stars .....like to think it already is :)

A couple of lines from 4’s suggested song, Stories Of The Street comes to mind -

“I balance on a wishing well that all men call the world
We are so small between the stars, so large against the sky”

....gravity and perspective....
It doesn't have to be perfect, it just has to B4real ~ me
Attitude is a self-fulfilling prophecy ~ me ...... The magic of art is the truth of its lies ~ me ...... Only left-handers are in their right mind!
