River of Pain by nemmy River of Pain by nemmy
Inspired by Last Kiss - Pearl Jam

Oh where, oh where can my baby be?
The lord took her away from me.
She's gone to heaven so I got to be good,
So I can see my baby when I leave this world.

We were out on a date in my daddy's car.
We hadn't driven very far...
There in the road, strait ahead,
A car was stalled, the engine was dead.
I couldn't stop, so I swerved to the right.
I'll never forget the sound that night.
The screaming tires, the busting glass,
The painful scream that I heard last.

Oh where, oh where can my baby be?
The lord took her away from me.
She's gone to heaven, so I got to be good,
So I can see my baby when I leave this world.

When I woke up, the rain was pouring down.
There were people standing all around.
Something warm flowing through my eyes,
But somehow I found my baby that night.
I lifted her head, she looked at me and said,
"Hold me darling just a little while."
I held her close, I kissed her our last kiss.
I found the love that I knew I'd miss.
Well now she's gone even though I hold her tight.
I lost my love, my life that night.

Oh where, oh where can my baby be?
The lord took her away from me.
She's gone to heaven, so I got to be good,
So I can see my baby when I leave this world.

i'm loving the emotion in this.. you can sense the pain. the darkness helps to bring it out as well. ;-)

thank you for that most flattering comment. yanno...someone else told me the same thing the other day about this piece..i was shocked because there wasn't too much to this piece. it must have been the excellent stock piece from t-gar and the connection with the Pearl Jam song that made it so emotional.
