Posts Tagged ‘as tears go by’

I was just moving about the house this morning, minding my own business, at the assignment where I’m currently working, when suddenly I heard the cleaner singing a tune I hadn’t heard for years!! One of my absolute favourite songs and immediately the hairs stood up along my arms and I got goosebumps all over my body. I absolutely LOVE this song and it brought back a whole host of memories…. πŸ™‚

It is the evening of the day,
I sit and watch the children play.
Smiling faces I can see
But not for me,
I sit and watch as tears go by.

My riches can’t buy everything,
I want to hear the children sing.
All I hear is the sound
Of rain falling on the ground,
I sit and watch as tears go by.

It is the evening of the day,
I sit and watch the children play.
Doing things I used to do
They think are new,
I sit and watch as tears go by.

Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm
Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm
Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm …
Songwriters: ANDREW OLDHAM, KEITH RICHARDS, MICK JAGGER

Just about some of the most beautiful words and particularly poignant considering my job….I work with people who are in the evening of their days….as they sit and watch the years go by.

I shall have to add this to my funeral/wake playlist!!!
