John Ford: “All the Songs I Never Heard You Sing” (2000)

Sometimes you can like a song without the lyrics making complete sense to you. You keep it around for its melodic or atmospheric appeal until one day…boom! Events in your life align to the song and it becomes yours.

It’s a happy event when the song itself is a happy one. But more often, I think, it’s the sad songs that can ambush you in this way.

Tonight for the first time, every line of this song made sense to me. It went from merely poignant to potent. And I’ll listen to it again and again…and I’ll never wash away my misery.
