Linda Ronstadt | Long Long Time

Love will abide, take things in stride
Sounds like good advice but there’s no one at my side
And time washes clean love’s wounds unseen
That’s what someone told me but I don’t know what it means

‘Cause I’ve done everything I know to try and make you mine
And I think I’m gonna love you for a long long time

Caught in my fears
Blinking back the tears
I can’t say you hurt me when you never let me near
And I never drew one response from you
All the while you fell all over girls you never knew
‘Cause I’ve done everything I know to try and make you mine
And I think it’s gonna hurt me for a long long time

Wait for the day
You’ll go away
Knowing that you warned me of the price I’d have to pay
And life’s full of flaws
Who knows the cause?
Living in the memory of a love that never was
‘Cause I’ve done everything I know to try and change your mind
And I think I’m gonna miss you for a long long time
‘Cause I’ve done everything I know to try and make you mine
And I think I’m gonna love you for a long long time

The Cranberries | Dreams | a Tribute song

RIP Dolores Mary O’Riordan : Born: 6th Sept 1971 – 15th Jan 2018


The Cranberries | Dreams

Oh my life is changing everyday
In every possible way
And oh my dreams
It’s never quite as it seems
Never quite as it seems

I know I felt like this before
But now I’m feeling it even more
Because it came from you
Then I open up and see
The person falling here is me
A different way to be

I want more, impossible to ignore
Impossible to ignore
And they’ll come true
Impossible not to do
Possible not to do

And now I tell you openly
You have my heart so don’t hurt me
You’re what I couldn’t find
A totally amazing mind
So understanding and so kind
You’re everything to me

Oh my life is changing everyday
In every possible way
And oh my dreams
It’s never quite as it seems
‘Cause you’re a dream to me
Dream to me

R.E.M. | Everybody Hurts


R.E.M. | Everybody Hurts | In Concert

“Everybody Hurts”

When your day is long
And the night, the night is yours alone
When you’re sure you’ve had enough
Of this life, well hang on

Don’t let yourself go
‘Cause everybody cries
And everybody hurts sometimes

Sometimes everything is wrong
Now it’s time to sing along
When your day is night alone (Hold on, hold on)
If you feel like letting go (Hold on)
If you think you’ve had too much
Of this life, well hang on

Everybody hurts
Take comfort in your friends
Everybody hurts
Don’t throw your hand, oh no

Don’t throw your hand
If you feel like you’re alone
No, no, no, you are not alone

If you’re on your own in this life
The days and nights are long
When you think you’ve had too much of this life to hang on

Well, everybody hurts sometimes
Everybody cries
Everybody hurts sometimes
And everybody hurts sometimes

So hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on
Everybody hurts

Song Tribute | Forever Young


Forever Young | Alphaville | Lyrics

Those who died too young are too many. The ones I have felt their deaths so intensely I will share photographs. For the past several Saturdays I have been paying Tribute to some of those I miss. There are others who’s deaths . I will always remember them while they were alive.

This Tribute is for James Dean. The video for the song ‘I Still Cry’ by Isle Delange was made into a tribute for James Dean as well as for River Phoenix. It is the perfect Tribute Song.

It makes me sad missing James Dean and River Phoenix. I wasn’t even alive when James Dean died in a car crash . but I was in love with a woman Sculptor who was his doppelganger.
In her awakening my feelings for her . it reinforced how deeply I felt for James Dean.

Watching ‘Rebel Without a Cause’ makes me cry for James and Natalie Wood both. They all died too young. Too many died too young. Natalie Wood is for another day. Her story is involved in too much mystery . secrets and lies . dying in a way that terrified her in life . it is why it made no sense she died in water.

I suppose doing these tributes the past few weeks has been helpful. There are those few who effect my life profoundly. It is impossible to forget them and I choose not to. I don’t want to forget them. They are part of my emotional soul and always will be.

I do hope the songs are comforting for anyone who listens. – j.kiley ’17

Song Tribute | I Still Cry


I Still Cry | Tribute to River Phoenix

This song and the video illustrates the life of the young actor River Phoenix. It gives me the chills to see him in relation to this song. He did grew into a fine actor but he died too young. Locked in time . Forever Young

River was so sensitive . he didn’t need to die . an actor the night before was extremely critical with him . it disturbed terribly . he was dead from an overdose less than 24 hours later . he loved and respected animal rights . the environment . and he would have developed into one of our greatest actors . I do seriously believe this .

I still miss him . it’s impossible to not think of him and feel his presence when the sound of this song hits my emotions . I wanted you to see some photographs as he was in life .

I include a signed message from River Phoenix . River will be forever young . Watch the video for I Still Cry . it makes me cry every time I watch it . It has been awhile since I last took a look . it still carries deep emotions for me. – j.kiley

I Still Cry
Ilse Delange

I`m making flowers out of paper
While darkness takes the afternoon
I know that they won`t last forever
But real ones fade away to soon

I still cry sometimes when I remember you
I still cry sometimes when I hear your name
I said goodbye and I know you`re alright now
But when the leaves start falling down I still cry

It`s just that I recall September
It`s just that I still hear your song
It`s just I can`t seem to remember
Forever more those days are gone

I still cry sometimes when I remember you
I still cry sometimes when I hear your name
I said goodbye and I know you`re alright now
But when the leaves start falling down I still cry

I still cry sometimes when I remember you
I still cry sometimes when I hear your name
I said goodbye and I know you`re alright now
But when the leaves start falling down I still cry
But when the leaves start falling down I still cry

Song Tribute | Stand By Me


Stand By Me | Ben E. King

The theme song for the 1986 Rob Reiner film “Stand By Me” with River Phoenix, Wil Wheaton, Corey Feldman & Jerry O’Connell. Based on the short story by Stephen King. The song “Stand By Me” was originally released in 1961 but became a hit again in 1986.

This song and film introduced me to the young actor River Phoenix. It gives me the chills to see him in relation to this song and film. He grew into a fine actor but then he was so sensitive and died too young . Locked in time . Forever Young . If you want to see the younger River Phoenix in the adaptation of the Stephen King novel ‘Stand By Me’ . I highly recommend it . A story unlike anything you are familiar with in relation to hearing the author’s name of Stephen King. He is usually horror or close to it as one can be. In ‘Stand By Me’ his writing is sensitive and about the growing up of young teenagers looking for adventure and finding more out than they surely wanted to find. All of the young performances were excellent including of course that of River Phoenix. – j.kiley ’17
