Don’t Cry

What this is, is a lost song from my St Nicholas days. I’ve tried everything I can to find it. Limewire turns up a bunch of misses. And no one I’ve asked seems to have heard it before.

Yet, even though I haven’t heard it for some 15 years now, I seem to recall most of the lyrics. It was a duet by a French couple, we thought.

So if anyone has any information about this song, please put me out of my misery.

Forever is over today
Like a blue sky painted with grey
The sun is still shining somewhere
The rain doesn’t mean it’s not there

You’ve lived in my heart for so long
That you know even after you’re gone
That the memories we made
Filled with
… … will keep living on.

(So) Don’t cry, don’t make it harder than it has to be
I wish there was an easy way
to kiss goodbye and never have to say

Don’t cry,
Even a river of your tears won’t be enough
To sail us through the love we’ve lost
Somewhere on the bridge we never crossed

And if it’s meant to be
Then you’ll come back to me
And we’ll never part again
But now you’re on the road
You’re travelling alone
If you ever need a friend
I’m just a telephone away
Just call me and you’ll know I’ll say

Repeat chorus

Are you sure there’s such a song? Heh, I’ve spent the last half an hour on Google and Limewire, and I’ve asked my ex SNGS friends. All gives a big fat zero.

Um, I doubt your SNG friends are from the same era as I. I’ve also tried Limewire and google, etc… too. Anyway, that’s what’s amazing about this song. Real, but now seems to have never existed.

I hope some ex-SNG girls will come and verify this.

Ok, I can vouch for the existence of this song. Unless of course someone doubts my credibility since Karen and I shared so many insane moments together at SNG and we may just have imagined this song together…

Hey P! See! Proof that the song exists!

I don’t think we could’ve dreamt the whole thing up, lyrics, music and all. Even considering how cuckoo we were the whole time.

I have been looking for this song for EONS!! Heard it during my IJ days too. Very very very agonizing to google/limewire/whatever! and can’t find the name of the song or the singers’ names! But I nearly went estatic seeing the lyrics on your blog.

Oh goodie. We’ve all found proof that we’re not mad! Now, if only someone can point us to the song / group whatever. I heard that it’s by a French couple. Although I really doubt it.

Looks like it’s an IJ song, huh?

Oh, if anyone has the full lyrics, it’ll be great as well.

it’s so strange there’s no sign of this song on the WWW, and that only convent girls have heard of it. Do you remember: a. what made you think it was by a french couple, and b: on what occasion(s) do you hear the song?

looking for.
