FAITHLESS LOVE
Written by  J D Souther
Performed by  Linda Ronstadt
Faithless love like a river flows
Raindrops falling on a broken rose
Down in some valley where nobody goes
And the night blows in like the cold dark wind
Faithless love like a river flows

Faithless love where did I go wrong
Was it telling stories in a heartbreak song
Where nobody's right and nobody was wrong
Faithless love will find you
And the misery entwine you
Faithless love where did I go wrong

Well I guess I'm standing in the hall of broken dreams
That's the way it sometimes goes
Whenever a new love never turns out like it seems
It's the feeling comes and goes

Faithless love like a river flows
Like raindrops falling on a broken rose
Down in some valley where nobody goes
Faithless love has found me
Thrown its chilly arms around me
Faithless love like a river flows
This has always been a favorite song of mine since the first time I heard it.  The opening line catching your attention, and the music recreates the sounds of a river rolling over rocks, plants, everything in its way and pulling any hapless soul caught in it down into its chilly depths.  This song gave me a real appreciation for the way the music can express some of the same thoughts and moods as the lyrics.
