A Song For Adam -- Jackson Browne (1972)
Dedicated to the Memory of Adam Saylor and all of my Friends here on You Tube who have lost someone before their time.

Album: Saturate Before Using (1972)
Lyrics: by Jackson Browne

SONG FOR ADAM

Though Adam was a friend of mine,
I did not know him well.
He was alone into his distance
He was deep into his well.
I could guess what he was laughing at,
but I couldn't really tell.
Now the story's told that Adam jumped,
but I've been thinking that he fell.

Together we went traveling,
as we received the call.
His destination India,
and I had none at all.
Well, I still remember laughing
with our backs against the wall.
So free of fear, we never thought
that one of us might fall.

I sit before my only candle,
but it's so little light to find my way.
Now this story unfolds before my candle
Which is shorter every hour,
as it reaches for the day.
But I feel just like a candle in the way.
I guess I'll get there,
but I wouldn't say for sure.

When we parted we were laughing still,
as our goodbyes were said.
And I never heard from him again
as each our lives we led.
Except for once in someone else's letter that I read.
Until I heard the sudden word that a friend of mine was dead.

I sit before my only candle,
like a pilgrim sits beside the way.
Now this journey appears before my candle
As a song that's growing fainter,
the harder that I play.

That I fear before I am a fade away
THAT I FEAR BEFORE I ... END ... ILL FADE AWAY

But I guess I'll get there,
though I wouldn't say for sure.

Though Adam was a friend of mine,
I did not know him long.
And when I stood myself beside him,
I never though I was as strong.
Still it seems he stopped his singing
in the middle of his song.
Well I'm not the one to say I know,
but I'm hoping he was wrong.

I'm holding out my only candle,
though it's so little light to find my way.
Now this story's been laid beneath my candle
And it's shorter every hour,
as it reaches for the day.
Yes, I feel just like a candle in the way
I hope I'll get there,

but I've never prayed.
BUT I NEVER PRAY

SONG FOR ADAM - Jackson Browne - Saturate Before Using (1972)
Artist: Jackson Browne Album: Saturate Before Using (1972) This song is an excellent example of how JB turns Real life experience into a song people can relate to. It deals with mourning and loss, as JB remembers a friend (Adam Saylor). A Jackson Browne Masterpiece, and inspired/motivated/heartfelt Work that many (unfortunately) can relate to.
