“Dark and drowning in my sorrows … this ain’t no party tune. Some songs are such that they can become an individual’s personal interpretation. Make of it what you will, but for me it rang of the opinion that joy seems so fleeting and sorrow lingers … Memories flood back of good times that live in the shadow of losing dear ones. There are songs for a time, songs that take you back to a time … ‘Crying Over’ is one of those songs”. – Donna Fisk.
