Funny thing is- I would probably do it again pretty much the same way. Oh, I suppose that I would spend more time with the ones I've loved. When they're gone, they're gone. My pal, Ed Brown, always said, "Youth has no concept of mortality." He was right, of course.
It seems that I haven't loved very well and I'm sorry about that. I surely have loved hard, though. Maybe I thought that would make up for it.
Every now and then I've played the music that was popular. Of course that's been when fashion blew it my way for short bursts. I've sung what's in my heart and I've done it from my soul.
I would like to tell you about everything I've seen, everything I've felt. Sometimes it seems like I remember every breath.
