A Simple Twist of Fate

"He woke up, the room was bare

He didn't see her anywhere.

He told himself he didn't care, pushed the window open wide,

Felt an emptiness inside to which he just could not relate

Brought on by a simple twist of fate.


People tell me it's a sin

To know and feel too much within.

I still believe she was my twin, but I lost the ring.

She was born in spring, but I was born too late

Blame it on a simple twist of fate.

- Bob Dylan, 1974

That song rocks.

I love the one [forgot the name] that starts out with "...Meet me in the morning..."

That is awesome!
