A candy-colored clown they call the sandman tiptoes to my room every night just to sprinkle stardust and to whisper, “Go to sleep. Everything is alright.”

I close my eyes, Then I drift away…into the magic night.

I softly say a silent prayer, like dreamers do.

Then I fall asleep to dream… my dreams of you.

In dreams I walk with you.

In dreams I talk to you.

In dreams you’re mine.

All of the time we’re together… In dreams… In dreams.

But just before the dawn, I awake and find you gone.

I can’t help it… I can’t help it if I cry.

I remember that you said “goodbye”.

It’s too bad that all these things can only happen in my dreams…

Only in dreams… in beautiful dreams.”

This is one of the most powerful love songs ever written and performed. It communicates the beautiful pain of sexual desire and passion that conceives babies, and yet, leaves partners in heart break, longing, anguish and despair over the loss of a relationship that promised an eternity of overwhelming Ecstasy and Joy.

Sex without communication, seeks only sensation: no responsibility for the lover and no willingness TO BE THE OTHER. Sexual passion endures for a moment. The Child of Passion lives for a Life Time, depending on parents to nurse, to work, to sacrifice for them, in the Hope of fulfilling a Future for themselves, each other and for Mankind. The regret of losing the possibility of creating a  Life, and Living a Life, is the Pain of Death.

“Used to be so easy to give my heart away, But I found out the hard way, There’s a price you have to pay I found out that love was no friend of mine I should have known time after time So long, it was so long ago But I’ve still got the blues for you Used to be so easy to fall in love again But I found out the hard way It’s a road that leads to pain I found that love was more than just a game You’re playin’ to win But you lose just the same So long, it was so long ago But I’ve still got the blues for you So many years since I’ve seen your face Here in my heart, there’s an empty space Where you used to be So long, it was so long ago But I’ve still got the blues for you Though the days come and go There is one thing I know I’ve still got the blues for you.”

— lyrics to the song, ‘Still Got The Blues For You’, by Gary Moore


The Montreaux Jazz Festival in July 2010 was the last filmed performance by Gary Moore before his untimely death in February 2011.  The song in this video is “STILL GOT THE BLUES FOR YOU”.  It features incomparably heart-wrenching lyrics and one of the most magnificent guitar solos ever performed.

If you have ever been heartbroken over the loss of a Lover or Loved One this song will make you cry or feel like crying, not matter how long ago that loss may have happened.  This is the ultimate “beautiful sadness” song.  One of the reasons that a lost love is so painful and seems to forever is because the beauty, pleasurable moments , spiritual affinity we shared with our lost companion is indestructible.  We cannot destroy or deny moments of pleasure, no matter how long or how hard we try.  So, we might as well relish the beauty of sadness — and fondly remember the lost loves of our lives.  They are far too few and too infrequent.
