I’m At It Again …

I’ve been listening to David for more than an hour now. The last song on my list was his Walk Away From Love. Every time I hear this song, I can’t help but wonder if that is the song that best describes his life. Most people claim it’s Statue of a Fool, a song he wrote himself when he was quite young.

He may have been a bit of a fool — as most of us are – – but having read a whole lot about him, I almost feel as if he was running away from the type of hurt described in Walk Away From Love. And I don’t necessarily mean the hurt a love gone bad might cause. I rather think of the hurt that lurks behind so many other human relationships. That fear — or dread as described in the song — of  a potential hurt may elicit the urge to escape, to evade, to walk away from it all.

Maybe I feel that way because in this song a rare combination of  brilliant lyrics, singing and life story combine to a — to me — overwhelming experience.

Sing it, David!

  1. Sup Rag! This is definitely “my” song! 😉

  2. Hey Sawyer! This song has a lot more depth than most other love songs … We all should react more often to our so called gut feelings. It may save us a heartache every so often.
