Babe lyrics
Songwriters: De Young, Dennis;

Babe, I'm leaving, I must be on my way
The time is drawing near
My train is going, I see it in your eyes
The love, the need, your tears

But I'll be lonely without you
And I'll need your love to see me through
Please believe me, my heart is in your hands
'Cause I'll be missing you

'Cause you know it's you babe
Whenever I get weary and I've had enough
I feel like giving up
You know it's you babe
Giving me the courage and the strength I need
Please believe that it's true, babe, I love you

You know it's you babe

Whenever I get weary and I've had enough
I feel like giving up
You know it's you babe
Giving me the courage and the strength I need
Please believe that it's true, babe, I love you

Babe, I'm leaving, I'll say it once again
Somehow try to smile
'Cause I know the feelings we're trying to forget
If only for a while

'Cause I'll be lonely without you
And I'll need your love to see me through
Please believe me, my heart is in your hands
'Cause I'll be missing you

Babe, I love you
Babe, I love you
Ooh, babe

Styx was my love's fav rock band, and this was his favorite. When he passed, music became "noise" to me. I simply could not tolerate it!

Little by little, I have begun to listen again. We loved music, and to dance, and I still feel a "sting" when I hear certain songs!

In the past few weeks, I have had to drive some distances, as my mom was hospitalized. The "quiet" can be deafening! So, on came the radio, and the memories.

At first, all the music seemed to be crying out my sorrow, my loss. But as the time has passed, I am now hearing the words of songs that speak of "tomorrow". Of finding new "beginnings".

Music, books and poetry have always captivated me. I have always found an outlet or motivation, through these mediums. I thought I had lost that. It has brought me great joy to enjoy these once more!

May you all "hear" the music once more!

Thank you.

I realize this is an older post now, but I've been wondering how I would go about this as one of my niggest struggles.

I'm a musician and a singer/songwrtier. My dear wife was my biggest fan - actually my only fan, but I was ok with that.

She loved how I played the piano and even more how I sang. She said my voice had healing qualitites in it.

Now I'm not sure how I'll sing any songs without her here. So many of the songs I've thought about singing are real tear jerkers, and real sad songs that will mirror our current sadness and situation.

I used to sing these each time I'd sing as they're my favorites.

I love those songs, but have no idea how I'll ever get through them now.

I also have a hard time listening to other songs, as many of my songs became her favorites to listen to, as she got to like my taste in music.
