I'm certain I've posted this one before

But Life has made it the song that sums up how I feel perfectly right now. Again.

Unless I am overreacting to some very bad secondhand info (very possible), but I'm bunkering in for the worst.

Just in time for Valentine's Day, one of my favorite broke up/never were mopers...

"I Know It's Over"
[Morrissey/Marr]
{Jeff Buckley had a really good live cover of this back in 95, too)


Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head!
And as I climb into an empty bed
Oh well, enough said.

I know it's over, still I cling
I don't know where else I can go
Over, Over

Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head!
See the sea, it wants to take me
The knife, it wants to slit me
do you think you can help me?
Sad, Veiled Bride, please be happy
Handsome Groom, give her room
Loud, Loutish Lover, treat her kindly
(for she needs you more than she loves you)

I know it's over, still I cling
I don't know where else I can go
Over, Over
I know it's over, and it never really began
but in my heart it was so real

And you even spoke to me, and said:
"if you're so funny, why are you on your own tonight?
and if you're so clever, why are you on your own tonight?
if you're so very good looking, why do you sleep alone tonight?
if you're so very entertaining, why are you on your own tonight?
I know! Because tonight is just like any other night
That's why you're on your own tonight!
With your triumphs and your charms
while they are in each other's arms!"

It's so easy to laugh, it's so easy to hate
it takes strength to be gentle and kind
over, over

It's so easy to laugh, it's so easy to hate
it take guts to be gentle and kind
over, over

Oh mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head!
Oh mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head!
Oh mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head!
Oh mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head!
