g'day eh, it's been awhile, good to be back, i read this weeks assignment and instantly started singin "on the turning away", one of my favorite floyds, which started me thinkin on another one of my favorites who just stepped away from the fame and in doing so, didn't so much as burn his bridge as crossed it and kept walking. (some might say he burnt hs bridge as there's no going back)

had to go
-------------------------------------------------------------
not as crack in his voice as he sang the last phrase
not a pause in his pace as he stepped from the stage
planning this time to leave it for good
he stepped to his god like only he could

living the life of the cat
licking the wounds of the past
leaving his fame for the mat
loving his life __ at last

fearing his life would end in the sea
fearing his music was all he would be
asking his god to save him once more
he was reborn as he washed on the shore

living the life of the cat
licking the wounds in his past
leaving the place where he sat
loving his life __ at last

his songs still tell us tales of love and of life
his music paints a picture as sharp as a knife
father and son closed his very last show
we know from his exit, he really had to go

------------------------------------------------------------

Hey Marty,

I gotta say, there are a lot of songs people are posting here that I really like, but this one is particularly awesome! A story well told.

Good work!

Wonderful! I knew who it was right away.

Falling in love is like learning to play the guitar; first you learn to follow the rules, then you learn to play with your heart.
