Some lines that have always stood out to me, from IMO the greatest songwriter of all time:
"In the clearing stands a boxer,
And a fighter by his trade
And he carries the reminders
Of ev'ry glove that laid him down
And cut him till he cried out
In his anger and his shame,
"I am leaving, I am leaving."
But the fighter still remains"
The Boxer, Paul Simon
"My mind's distracted and diffused
My thoughts are many miles away
They lie with you when you're asleep
And kiss you when you start your day."
"And so you see I have come to doubt
All that I once held as true
I stand alone without beliefs
The only truth I know is you."
Kathy's Song, Paul Simon
