    Jackson Browne Fans

    Any Jackson Browne fans out there? I really like his music. I think his finest song is "Song For Adam." It always "gets to me" every time I hear it.

    SONG FOR ADAM


    Though Adam was a friend of mine, I did not know him well
    He was alone into his distance
    He was deep into his well
    I could guess what he was laughing at, but I couldn't really tell
    Now the story's told that Adam jumped, but I've been thinking that he fell

    Together we went traveling, as we received the call
    His destination India, and I had none at all
    Well, I still remember laughing with our backs against the wall
    So free of fear, we never thought that one of us might fall

    I sit before my only candle, but it's so little light to find my way
    Now this story unfolds before my candle
    Which is shorter every hour as it reaches for the day
    But I feel just like a candle in the way
    I guess I'll get there, but I wouldn't say for sure

    When we parted we were laughing still, as our goodbyes were said
    And I never heard from him again as each our lives we led
    Except for once in someone else's letter that I read
    Until I heard the sudden word that a friend of mine was dead

    I sit before my only candle, like a pilgrim sits beside the way
    Now this journey appears before my candle
    As a song that's growing fainter the harder that I play
    But I fear before I end I'll fade away
    But I guess I'll get there, though I wouldn't say for sure

    Though Adam was a friend of mine, I did not know him long
    And when I stood myself beside him, I never though I was as strong
    Still it seems he stopped his singing in the middle of his song
    Well I'm not the one to say I know, but I'm hoping he was wrong

    I'm holding out my only candle, though it's so little light to find my way
    Now this story's been laid beneath my candle
    And it's shorter every hour as it reaches for the day
    Yes, I feel just like a candle in the way
    I hope I'll get there, but I never pray



    WOW!
