Paul Smith Music  Lyrics and Chords
         All I've Left Of You    

About the song:
The most devastating thing that can happen to someone is to loose a loved one in death.
When something like that happens to you it's even hard to comprehend or understand it.
In some cases the grieving process can take a long long time, even years.  Slowly letting 
go, little by little.  With the passing of time the memories of them begin to fad.  As they 
do, feels of sadness and loneliness can surface and even guilt. Ultimately though, the 
time must come when you just have to "say goodbye."  All that's left is fading memories, 
a few photographs, and of course, your love of them.
