This is one of those days. Though it's bright sunshine outside, I feel terribly blue and depressed and going through all the "I lost my love" songs that I can remember.

The first one I thought if is, for some reason "When the Sun Goes Down". Here it is:

http://youtu.be/jrzBmuv8YlU

Music Our love was new
On that yesterday
Our love was true
On that yesterday
The love we knew
On that yesterday
Has grown cold
You've gone away

Now I'm alone in this empty town
I'm so alone in this dreary town
And I call for my own true love
Every night, when the sun goes down
You're gone, you're gone
My own true love you're gone Music

Oh Billy I miss you so! cry me a river

I Still Miss Someone - Many singers, my favourite is Joan Baez

http://youtu.be/rpHnrmUd160

Music There's someone for me somewhere [Is there?]
But I still miss someone
... I miss those arms that held me
When all the love was there Music

Oh my poor sweet darling! hug

I wish there was something I could do but think of you and remind you of that old saw. It's better to have loved and lost rather than not having loved at all. Or, as your niece said so wisely, "Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened".

Easier said than done, I know. But it's true. Know that we all love you. Hearts

File la laine

Music Dans la grande cheminée
S'éteint le feu du bonheur
Car la dame abandonnée
Ne retrouve pas son coeur

File la laine
File les jours
Garde ma peine
Et mon amour
Music

In the big fireplace
The fire of happiness is going out
For the lady left behind
Can't find her lost heart anywhere

Spin away the wool
Spin away the days
Keep my pain
And my love

Talking about spinning love and wool, this extract from a Jean Ferrat song:

Music Ô toi si proche et si lointaine
Et que l'amour file sa laine
Entre nos doigts désaccordés
Music

Oh you who are so near yet so far
Let love spin its wool [sliding it]
Between our fingers now out of sync Crying or Very sad

I'm still in that blue mood today...

I've been rewriting the lyrics of some love songs (like I did with "Summer Kisses, Winter Tears").

Music I was going where you went
And you were going with me
The love light in your eyes
Was all I needed to guide me
The gold was in your heart
Silver in stars above me
I could hear the music
Just because you loved me Music

That one of course I rewrote thinking of my husband. Hearts

What about another kind of lost love - lost because the lovers parted - not by death but by breaking up.

Ça va pas changer le monde - Joe Dassin

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2H0avFQ7wiI

[Video taken offline]

Music Ça va pas changer le monde
Ça va pas le déranger
Il est comme avant, le monde
C'est toi seul qui a changé
Moi je suis restée la même
Celle qui croyait que tu l'aimais
C'était pas vrai,
N'en parlons plus
Et la vie continue Music

It's not going to change the world
It's not going to bother it
The world is just like before
It's only you who've changed
Me, I stayed the same
The one who believed that you loved her
This proved untrue
Let's not talk about it
And Life goes on...

I even found that same song in Spanish:

Y el mundo sigue andando - Joe Dassin (a real multilingual singer!)

Are You Lonesome Tonight? - Elvis Presley

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=edRnjGPJGo0

[Video taken offline]

Music You read your lines so cleverly and never missed a cue...
Then came Act II - Using the change, you acted strange
But why, I never knew
... Honey, you lied when you said you loved me
But I'd rather go on hearing your lies than go on living without you Music

Poem by Apollinaire, music and singing by Marc Lavoine.

Music-wise, I prefer the Léo Ferré version, but this one has more appropriate pictures.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IxHkdfIlNe0

[Video taken offline]

Music L'amour s'en va comme cette eau courante
L'amour s'en va, comme la vie est lente
Et comme l'espérance est violente
Vienne la nuit, sonne l'heure
Les jours s'en vont, je demeure Music

Music Passent les jours et passent les semaines
Ni temps passé ni les amours reviennent
Sous le pont Mirabeau coule la Seine
Vienne la nuit, sonne l'heure
Les jours s'en vont, je demeure Music
