Well Marianne, it’s come to this time when we are really so old and our bodies are falling apart and I think I will follow you very soon. Know that I am so close behind you that if you stretch out your hand, I think you can reach mine. And you know that I’ve always loved you for your beauty and your wisdom, but I don’t need to say anything more about that because you know all about that. But now, I just want to wish you a very good journey. Goodbye old friend. Endless love, see you down the road.
Like a bird on a wire / Like a drunk in a midnight choir / I have tried in my way to be free / Like a fish on a hook / Like a knight in some old fashioned book / I have saved all my ribbons for theeAnd if I, if I have been unkind / I just hope you will let it go by / And if I, if I have been untrue / I hope you know it was never to you
Like a baby stillborn / Like a beast with his horn / I have torn everyone who reached out to meBut I swear by this song / And by all I have done wrong / I‘ll make it all up to be

Like a bird on a wire / Like a drunk in a midnight choir / I have tried in my way to be free
