Last year, I spent two weeks on our West Coast (Vancouver area) … being my annual visit to see my son and daughter. Last year was a little different in that it was also an opportunity to meet Blogger Carolyn (joyroses13.wordpress.com) and her family!
During that time, we spent a day on Granville Island where there are always various street entertainers, including musicians. In one particular area, was Scott Jacobs. I liked his voice and material so much that I bought two copies of the CD he was promoting. One was given to Carolyn and the other simply a treat for me! One of my favourite tracks is this one. Enjoy.

So here we are, and one more day and the year is gone. and I’ll wonder where this all will lead.
And its been a long while, but I am feeling quite the same way; feel like a boat lost at sea.
And I know this road is long and that someday you would leave our home, and I know that you would never lie to me.
But now you’re going, well it all feels like a dream. Oh, now you’re going, with the breeze.
But no matter where it takes you; no matter who or what you start to see; just don’t forget about me!
** ***** **
So now you’re headed out, you are flying high above our town. You’re soaring high above the sea.
But when your legs touch down, and gravity screams its sound, you will stand a thousand miles away.
And I will wonder where you will be and how you’ll live and what you’ll see. And I’ll wonder if you’ll stay the same.
But what’s the use in all this wishing and wondering, cause wishing never changed a thing.
So, go where you like, and don’t look back. Just go. No matter where they take you, no matter who or what you start to see, just don’t forget about me.
** ***** **
So now your out of touch. We’re out of reach, you’re out of luck. And we’re out of any words to say.
But I swear that I will never lose this memory in my mind. And I swear that this will never change.
So, make this promise to me. That no matter where they take you. No matter who or what you start to see.
Just don’t forget about me. Just don’t forget about me. Just don’t forget about me.
