If blood will flow when flesh and steel are one Drying in the color of the evening sun Tomorrow's rain will wash the stains away But something in our minds will always stay
Perhaps this final act was meant To clinch a lifetime's argument That nothing comes from violence and nothing ever could
For all those born beneath an angry star Lest we forget how fragile we are
On and on the rain will fall Like tears from a star Like tears from a star On and on the rain will say How fragile we are How fragile we are
On and on the rain will fall Like tears from a star Like tears from a star On and on the rain will say How fragile we are How fragile we are How fragile we are How fragile we are

Angelahopemusic from Los Angeles1987...I was a UCLA student in love with a man who was my first love. He was gay. My mom met him one time only, told me he was a "sissie" (her generation's word for homosexual) and he was gonna break my heart. I didn't believe her. I desperately wanted his love intimately. We went to Boston to visit a friend in Harvard Business School. As we were all driving over an old cobble stone bridge near Harvard Square it started to snow. This song played. I thought it was romantic. The irony of the lyrics and my mom's (she died in car crash 8 years later) words didn't escape me years later. 33 years later and the song is now just a beautiful but sad as I have never felt love in my heart that way again. And the gay man? He was just also a narcissist. You never get closure no matter how many letters you write.

It really was so easy for Linda Ronstadt to score a hit with her Buddy Holly cover of "It's So Easy." She would sometimes change the lyric to: "It's so easy to have a hit, all you have to do is recycle it."
His keyboard work helped define the Muscle Shoals sound and make him an integral part of many Neil Young recordings. Spooner is also an accomplished songwriter, whose hits include "I'm Your Puppet" and "Cry Like A Baby."
