For Ada

One year ago today my girlfriend Ada’s husband died. I….I have no idea what to tell her. And well, I noticed some similarities to the song in Fury of Solace. So…I wrote her something. I don’t like several of the lines, and I know, writing a filk like this is probably lame as hell, but I don’t know what to do or say as I can’t even be their to be with her. This frustration is shown in mine (Solace’s) lines, at least I hope it is. I’m not a musical person and this would probably sound terrible sung, but all I can give her are words, and they don’t seem enough so I’m willing to try anything.

Anyway:

To the tune of Lot In Life by Nick DeMatteo: See http://furyofsolace.com/?page_id=7

#WIDOW
One year ago today
My husband went away
Then this widowed girl
Thrust into the world
Carried on until today

So I’ve been told a lot in life
In each one rain must fall
I try my best to do what’s right
No one could do better

#SOLACE
Don’t know what to do
Had to be a better way
But my high-falutin’ words
and my *hugs* are just not enough #This line could use work
Unless I sucked it up and helped her anyway

Fate said carings my lot in life
For the good of all
Two lives suddnely intertwined, right?
The pride before the fail

#WIDOW/SOLACE
One life, two loves
Alone and together
And I… will never give up my love

#WIDOW (overlapping with Solace below)
So I’ve been told a lot in life
In each one rain must fall
I try my best to do what’s right
No one could do better

#SOLACE
Fate said carings my lot in life
For the good of all
Two lives suddnely intertwined, right?
The pride before the fail

#WIDOW/SOLACE
One life, two loves
Alone and together
And I… will never give up my love

Each day’s the same
All pawns in someone’s game
And I… have no choice but to survive

So…yeah. I love you Ada, and wish I could help with the pain you must be feeling. From what you’ve told me about your husband he was someone I could have been really great friends with.

Sorry about the poor quailty of the spelling and grammer in this post, I have trouble editing things like this. Hell, I have trouble writing things like this. Oh yeah. First non-RPG post.

Stay Geeky. –Canageek.
