These are lyrics that mean something to me now that Alexander is no longer with us. I stole most of em from someone else, so thanks to you if you put it up so we could read/listen to it.


Wonderful world Ė James Morrison

I've been down so low people look at me and they know,
they can tell something is wrong
like I dont belong,
well, staring through a window standing outside theyíre just to happy to care
and I wanna be like them but I'll mess it up again,
I tripped them out when God kicked outside everybody's soul.

And I know that it's a wonderful world
But i cant feel it right now,
I thought I was doing well but I just want to cry now,
Well I know that its a wonderful world from the sky down to the sea,
but I can only see when you're here, here with me.

Sometimes I feel so full that it just comes spilling out,
it's uncomfortable to see I give it away so easily,
but if I had someone I would do anything and never never never never let you feel alone
I wont, I wont leave u on your own,
who am I to dream, dreams are for fools, they always let you down

And I know that it's a wonderful world
But I cant feel it right now,
I thought i was doing well but I just want to cry now,
Well I know that its a wonderful world from the sky down to the sea,
but I can only see when you're here, here with me.

And I wish that I could make it better,
I'd give anything for you to call me,
Maybe just a little letter
Oh it could start again.

And I know that it's a wonderful world
But I cant feel it right now,
I thought I was doing well but I just want to cry now,
Well I know that its a wonderful world from the sky down to the sea,
but I can only see when you're here, here with me.

I know that its a wonderful world
but I cant feel it right now,
Iíve got all the right clothes to wear I just wanna cry now,
I know that it's a wonderful world from the sky down to the sea,
But I can only see well when you are here, here with me.

And I know that it's a wonderful world
When your with me.

Saying goodbye doesnít exist
Marco Borsato

(translated from Dutch to English by Stefan. So it doesnít rhyme anymore.)

Saying goodbye doesnít exist,
I do go away but I donít leave you.
But sweetheart you have to believe even though it hurts

I want you to let go of me,
And to go on whit your life tomorrow
But when youíre scared or lonely,
I will be there

Come like the wind that you feel and the rain
Follow what you do like the light of the moon
Look for me in everything and you will find me
Whisper my name and I will be coming

See whatís invisible,
What you believe is true.
Just open your eyes.
And I will be with you
Everything you have to do
Is to believe me on my word

Saying goodbye doesnít exist,

Come like the wind that you feel and the rain
Follow what you do like the light of the moon
Look for me in everything and you will find me
Whisper my name and I will be coming

Look in the air,
Look at the sea.
Wherever you will be walking,
Yes I will walk with you.
Every step and every moment,
Wherever you are then,
Whatever you do,
Wherever you go.
Whenever you need me,
Just whisper my name,
And I will be coming.

Saying goodbye doesnít exist.

Now comes the night
Rob Thomas


When the hour is upon us
And our beauty surely gone
No you will not be forgotten
No you will not be alone

And when the day has all but ended
And our echo starts to fade
No you will not be alone then
And you will not be afraid
No you will not be afraid

When the fog has finally lifted
From my cold and tired brow
No I will not leave you crying
And I will not let you down
No I will not let you down
I will not let you down

Now comes the night
Feel it fading away
And the soul underneath
Is it all that remains
So just slide over here
Let us hold to each other
Till the end of our days

Close your eyes
Racoon


Lost the things that you thought you would never miss.
Let them out, miss them while they're gone
But there's memories down here that will always live
And they can't take them away, so they won't

Open this window, let the sickness out
Sleep softly and breath again
If there's a way then it'll find you and help you out
You're like a circle, there is no start and no end

Close your eyes, you might see something beautiful
Cause it's not all pitch black in the back your mind
So close your eyes, you might see something prettier
You pick a dream right out of the night

And change I wish, for I will, cause it's gonna work.
You can do this, it's your life
And if you're unhappy about something, stop jerking about.
Follow the cloud and dive right in.

Open this window, just let the wind blow in
And let it grab you and calm you down.
And if there is no way, then find a way,
But don't go down that easy way,
And don't let any of them bastards hold you down

Close your eyes, you might see something beautiful
Cause it's not all pitch black at the back of your mind
So close your eyes, you might see something prettier
So pick a dream right out of the night

Welcome to the show,
Cause you're following the man, with a million dollar plan
And all the dreams are gone if you let them go.
And all the dreams you win, if you dare to make it so
If you dare to make it so

You lost the things that you thought you would never miss.
You let them out and miss them while they're gone
But there's memories down here and they will always live down here
No they can't take them away, so they won't

Close your eyes, you might see something beautiful
Cause it's not all pitch black at the back of your mind
So close your eyes, you might see something prettier
You pick a dream right out of the night

So close your eyes
You close your eyes
So close your eyes
Come on close your eyes

Dichterbij dan ooit Ė Blōf (Closer then ever)
Translated from Dutch to English by me

The band actually lost their drummer in a motor accident a couple of years ago. The songs from the album 'Blauwe Ruis' (Blue noise (for lack of a better word)) are about the loss of their drummer and friend.

Rather having lost something you really love
Then keeping something you didnít really miss anyway
Rather outside even though itís cold
Then to go outside if thereís nothing there anymore

Here is nothing to stay for
Here is only what was
And I take that with me forever
Forever

Who explains to me how everything works
How big the hole is between now and never
And how it comes that I know notice
You are gone, but closer then ever

Rather asking for the longest road
Then an answer that makes you stand still
Rather say what I seldom say
Then witholding that I need to go on

I donít have to tell you anything
What I havenít already said
With my mouth or my eyes
Forever
Who explains to me how everything works
How big the hole is between now and never
And how it comes that I know notice
You are gone, but closer then ever

Rather laugh about what has been
Then fear what still comes, perhaps
Rather loving a big ghost
Then hating something that you canít see

I donít have to explain anything to you
It lies here open within
And I make a last bow
Forever
Who explains to me how everything works
How big the hole is between now and never
And how it comes that I know notice
You are gone, but closer then ever

ok here's mine.

When youíre gone

Well I just can't seem to pity
Cos my heart's too numb to feel
And the smile does all the talking
Though the pain is all that's real
With the way that you keep screaming
I can hardly hear to think
And I feel the bridges burning underneath my feet

Where do you go when you're gone?
Where do you go when you're gone?
Oh how the road feels so long
Where do you go when you're gone?

Well I just want to stay dreaming; I just don't want to wake
Why can't we keep on sailing across this emerald lake?
And my forehead is still bleeding from the thorns I used to wear
And I'm left alone and beaten for this cross I choose to bear

Where do you go when you're gone?
Where do you go when you're gone?
Oh how the road feels so long
Where do you go when you're gone?

Well I finally found what I'm looking for
Though the road's still long and the light is still far
But I finally found what I'm looking for
Well I finally found what I'm looking for
Though the road's still long and the light is still far
Well finally found what I'm looking for

The voices fall like timber and the fear it pours like rain
My heart is crushed to cinders underneath this kind of pain
But there is no resolution when the revolution's dead
So I'm left with no solution for the voices in my head

Where do you go when you're gone?
Where do you go when you're gone?
Oh how the road feels so long
Where do you go when you're gone?

Xavier, Stefan,

Thanks for posting these lyrics. I'm sure Alexander would have approved, and I hope remembering him in this way helps you as you grieve.

Much love,
Larry

I've been so self consumed - I still can't believe he's gone.
