    I'm not sure what I'm feeling besides sadness. My ex sent me this song by Over the Rhine, it's called Latter days. It made me cry...

    What a beautiful piece of heartache
    This has all turned out to be
    Lord knows we've learned the hard way
    All about healthy apathy

    I use these words pretty loosely
    There's so much more to life than words

    There is a me you would not recognize, dear
    Call it the shadow of myself
    And if the music starts before I get there
    Dance without me, you dance so gracefully
    I really think I'll be okay
    They've taken a toll, these latter days

    Nothing like sleeping on a bed of nails
    Nothing much here but our broken dream
    Oh, but baby, if all else fails
    Nothing is ever quite what it seems

    And I'm dying inside to leave you
    With more than just cliches

    There is a me you would not recognize, dear
    Call it the shadow of myself
    And if the music starts before I get there
    Dance without me, you dance so gracefully
    I really think I'll be okay
    They've taken their toll, these latter days
    They've taken their toll, these latter days

    Tell them it's real
    Tell them it's really real
    I just don't have much left to say
    They've taken their toll, these latter days
    They've taken their toll, these latter days

    quite touching indeed. i've never heard that song but its words are special.
    i can see why they have reached a deep part of your being. hope you now feel better and that sadness has lifted. if you need to talk please feel free to do so, we are here for you.
