Boyz II Men - It's so Hard to Say Goodbye - And I'll take with me the memories, To be my sunshine after the rain

Everything but the Girl - And I Miss You - And the years have proved to offer, nothing since you've moved. You're long gone, but I can't move on.

Dolly Parton - I Will Always Love You - Bittersweet memories, that is all I'm taking with me.

Guns N Roses - November Rain - But if you could heal a broken heart, Wouldn't time be out to charm you?

Alanis Morissette - Unsent - The truth is whenever I think of the early 90's, your face comes up with a vengeance like it was yesterday.

Patti Smyth - No Mistakes - Why do only the cold and lonely times seem to last?

Matchbox 20 - Disease - You left a stain, On every one of my good days.

I'm reading some reviews of hotels in London and someone mentions "seasonal effective disorder", which sounds to me like the exact opposite of the condition where you get depressed from lack of sunlight.

Across the pond

I booked my flights this morning! In May I am flying to London (laying over in Chicago) and then on to Rome, and I am also going to Florence and Naples while I am in Italy. I am spending 2 nights each in Florence and Naples, 3 nights in London and 8 in Rome. I may be going to Florence just to see David, and Naples just to have pizza and see the Mediterranean. Of course, I will do more than that in each city, but that's why I am going. is invaluable for airfare.
