Remnants – Part 8

In my life, I was richly blessed to marry three amazing women—fascinating of character, deeply talented, strikingly beautiful and bigger than life. All three, besides their undeniable beauty, were wondrous singers who brought to my music a power and depth that I alone could never have mustered myself.

Loving all three of them was easy. However, all three marriages, for one reason or another, were met with raised eyebrows, questionable speculation and just plain doubt by many around me— both family and friends.

It seemed, with each, I always had to wade through the doubts of others on the way to the wedding day. And I have to say now that all those people and all those doubts were wrong. Looking back, it’s clear to me that I was a lucky man.

However, the struggle to get through the doubters and the naysayers was not always fun.

Here is a song that was begun with the first and finally finished with the last.

Round In Circles

Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

Ah everybody knows
Sure as sin
So everybody’s tryin’
Ta put their two cents in

But nobody knows
The love I’ve found
Can’t imagine life
Without you around

I never knew the reason for the rain
I never knew my heart could feel such pain
Mama says you’re no good for me
So what’ll it be?

I never knew that love could feel like this
Never knew the chaos of one kiss
Daddy says, “Boy, find someone new.”
So what’ll we do?

I guess I’m goin’ ‘round in circles
Runnin’ around in circles
‘Round an’ ‘round in circles
Over you

I never knew the meaning of the moon
I never knew that love could come so soon
Sister says, “Boy, don’t be a fool.”
So whaddo I do?

I guess I’m goin’ ‘round in circles
Runnin’ around in circles
‘Round an’ ‘round in circles
Over you

Yeah everybody knows
Sure as sin
So everybody’s tryin’
Ta put their two cents in

But nobody knows
The love I’ve found
Can’t imagine life
Without you around

Yeah it’s got me goin’ ‘round in circles
Runnin’ around in circles
‘Round an’ ‘round in circles
Over you

I never knew the meaning of the moon
I never knew that love could come so soon
I never knew that love could feel like this
Oh I never knew the chaos of one kiss
No I never knew the reason for the rain
I never knew my heart
Could feel such pain
