FOR REASONS I’VE FORGOTTEN

The only reason I have taken it upon myself to bring to our readers & our valued eLanka “members”, certain “songs”, the “lyrics”, the “best” versions, plus the “writers” etc., etc., is because I want to “share” what I call “beautiful music” (of all types), vocal & of course, instrumental. “Solo” & Group/Bands, & as I do not wish to say later, “for reasons I’ve forgotten”, I could not do this for you.

It really does not matter how one feels, at any given moment, believe me when I tell you that MUSIC will always be a source of pleasure . Personally, I have music going on 24/7. Good “Country Music” of the 80s & 90s genre, music, mostly American-Country, because of it’s wide variety, songs from the “Honky-tonks”, love-songs, cheatin’ songs, happy songs & sad songs, various tempos, various Artistes from all over the World, who go to America to “record”simply because they have the BEST-BACKING Groups in the U.S.A. While I am very proud to now be an Australian Citizen, as a “Song-writer”, I would have been much better advised to go to America, where I could have done extremely well, or so I’ve been told, with at least a few of the songs I have composed.

However, this particular song was not composed by me, although I would have loved to have written it. The lyrics “tell the story”

“FOR REASONS I’VE FORGOTTEN”

Written by Jamie O Hara/Complimentary Lyrics by Trisha Yearwood/ the two best versions onYou-Tube are the “solo” Trisha Yearwood & “duet” Trisha & Raul Malo of “Mavericks” fame.

For reasons I’ve forgotten now
We brought love to an end
Ain’t it funny how, the little things
Became so big, back then
Damn the pride that makes me want
To break, instead of bend
For reasons I’ve forgotten now
I lost my one true friend

It’s lonely tonight
Lookin’ back on yesterday
Seein’ the fool I was
Feelin’ the price I paid
But, the funny thing about it is
I don’t even remember
Who was right, who was wrong

For reasons I’ve forgotten now
We brought love to an end
Ain’t it funny how, the little things
Became so big, back then
Damn the pride thqt makes me want
To break, instead of bend
For reasons I’ve forgotten now
I lost my one true friend

Yes, for reasons I’ve forgotten now
I lost my one true friend.
