A Special Farewell, #TheCranberries

Okay, so I missed the mark by a few days, as I am just now getting my
Song Lyric Sunday
post done, but I thought this would be a good way to say farewell to the first month of 2018, which has been a difficult one by any stretch.

This basic, sad, wistful title track from my favourite Cranberries album is a simple goodbye to the woman who was the voice of The Cranberries as a band:

It’s about losing people and remembering fondly, after-the-fact, as hard as that can be. It feels like letting go of something, letting go of hurt feelings, surrendering from all the arguing that many engage in in many of their relationships.

***

There’s no need to argue anymore.
I gave all I could, but it left me so sore.
And the thing that makes me mad,
Is the one thing that I had,
I knew, I knew, I’d lose you.
You’ll always be special to me, Special to me, to me.

And I remember all the things we once shared,
Watching T.V. movies on the living room armchair.
But they say it will work out fine.
Was it all a waste of time.
‘Cause I knew, I knew, I’d lose you.
You’ll always be special to me, Special to me, to me.

Will I forget in time, ah,
You said I was on your mind?
There’s no need to argue, No need to argue anymore.
There’s no need to argue anymore.
Ouuu, ouuu, ouuuu…
Special.

LYRICS

***

On this final day of January, I have due a 600 word draft, a character sketch, and a chapter outline.

I have a sore throat again.

It’s been a long, rough month, but it is over.

Dolores O’Riordan is gone, passing away in January of 2018, and I am closing the book on this January and saying goodbye to many things.

Special.

  1. This is pretty much how I felt saying goodbye to 2017; and while January of 2018 wasn’t a whole lot better, we still have the whole year ahead of us. Saying goodbye is hard, but I imagine it could be easier with the Cranberries playing through my speaker. She has a stunning voice! ❤
