    I first learned about this amazing voice through the Ten Club forum during my lurking years (2004-2010). I love the song called My Beloved Wife. Actually now that I'm thinking it again, Tigerlily is a masterpiece in its entirety.

    You would have to send in the song that makes me burst into tears.... :cry:

    Those "old time" couples had a love that lasted a lifetime, - I'm not so sure about this generation.

    Sorry, I didn't mean to make you cry. I just want to see you smile! :) You are so beautiful when you smile! :P Like in your avatar's picture. I just wanted to share with you quality music and one of my favourite Natalie Merchant's song. I have also shed some tears while I was listening to this song. Most of the times though, I have goosebumps. As far as your last statement is concerned, I couldn't agree more with you. Every time I listen to My Beloved Wife, I remember my late grandmother who stopped caring about herself after she lost her husband (my grandfather). She used to say that now that I'm lost my man I'm all alone. I have nothing left in the world for me. I want to die so I will be able to meet him up in the sky. Unfortunately, we lost her 10 years after my late grandfather passed away. But, it wasn't true because she had her children (including my father) and her grandchildren (including me) to help her to go through that. But, you probably already know that when you love someone and you loose him/her nothing in the whole world can replace him/her.

    Thank you for the beautiful words.... :D I'm smiling now....

    I have a similer story with my grandparents from my dads side. My grandfather died exactly a year later on the "same" day his wife died. He lived to be 90 yrs old when he died ( in his sleep ). My grandmother was 86 yrs old. She fell and broke her hip. She just never recovered.

    My family is from Palermo, Italy ( I hope I'm spelling that right )

    Seven Years....
    http://youtu.be/sMpA5DrS8aQ


    How did I love you?
    There was no measuring
    Far above this dirty world
    Far above everything
    In your tower over it
    You were clean

    So warm and insightful
    Were you in my eyes
    I was sure the rightful
    Guardian of my life
    Damn you betrayer
    How you lied

    But for seven years
    You were loved
    I laid golden orchid crowns
    Around you feet ....

    For seven years
    I bowed down
    To touch the ground
    So wholly your devotee ....

    You were
    All that I could see ....

    I've got my sight now
    I see everything you hid
    So don't you try to right now
    All the wrong you did
    I might forget you
    But not forgive

    But for seven years
    You were loved
    I laid golden orchid crowns
    Around your feet

    For seven years
    I bowed down
    To touch the ground
    So wholly your devotee

    For seven years
    You were so revered
    I made offerings of
    Anything and everything I had

    You were
    All that I could see ...

    Saw her in either 99 or 2000 in new haven. I yelled this song out and she played it. I think it was during the Ophelia tour. She does a great cover of after the gold rush.

    It will be so worth it! I saw her live in a small venue in NYC a few years ago. So amazing, and I heard it wasn't even her best show (I think she did like a 5 night run or something).

    Natalie Merchant narrates this, if anyone is interested. Showing on the Smithsonian Channel, which of course I don't have :evil:

    THE ORIGINS OF OZ
    "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" is a children's story unlike any other. Enthusiastically embraced by young and old alike, author L. Frank Baum's beloved classic was the "Harry Potter" of its day. It has been adapted and re-invented by multiple generations and has inspired the most beloved characters and iconic pair of shoes in pop-culture history. But how did this classic tale come to be? Visit the locations that inspired Baum's Land of Oz, dig into his family's archival collection, and hear interviews with fans and historians as we share this heart-warming story of the man behind the
