Noteworthy Now

Just days after receiving news of the unexpected passing of David Bowie, the Rock world was shaken again by the death of another major musician. Glenn Frey of the Eagles died Monday (1/18) in New York City where he had been being treated for Pneumonia in addition to complications related to Acute Ulcerative Colitis and Rheumatiod Arthritis.  The 67 year old Frey's health issues had prompted the Eagles to respectfully request that the Kennedy Center Honor the band was due to receive this year be deferred until next year in anticipation that the guitarist would be in better health and able to attend. Sadly, the addition of Pneumonia to the other ailments Frey was waging dealing with created a health tsunami not even some of the top health providers in the country could pull him through.  In acknowledging the loss of their band mate the Eagles site quoted lyrics from a song Frey and Jack Tempchin co-wrote.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A perfect day, the sun is sinkin' low

As evening falls, the gentle breezes blow

The time we shared went by so fast

Just like a dream, we knew it couldn't last

But I'd do it all again

If I could, somehow

But I must be leavin' soon

It's your world now

 

It's your world now

My race is run

I'm moving on

Like the setting sun

No sad goodbyes

No tears allowed

You'll be alright

It's your world now

 

Even When we're apart

You'll alwasy be in my heart

When dark clouds appear in the sky

Remember true love never dies

 

But first a kiss, one glass of wine

Just one more dance while there's still time

My one last wish: someday, you'll see

How hard I tried and how much you meant to me

 

It's your world now

Used well your time

Be part of something good

Leave something good behind

The curtain falls

I take my bow

That's how it's meant to be

It's your world now

It's your world now

It's your world now
