∆∆∆ I WISH ∆∆∆


HOW TO DRESS WELL "WAKING UP TO LIFE SOMETIMES SEEMS WORSE" from Yours Truly on Vimeo.



i lost my best friend and i sang this song for him. this was a really beautiful and sad experience for me – the video is the only take of the song, the first time i've ever played it, culling the lyrics from memory and singing from my soul with and for my boy.

i hope if you've lost someone you love you know that this shit is from the bottom of the heart.

love,
htdw

I lost my friend Jeremy 4 months ago and this was me and his favorite song growing up, and the day I found out about his death, between all the crying, I could only think to put this song on. thank you, so very much for this cover and may your friend rest in peace.

Ryan would have loved it!

After loosing so many people I loved, and always wishing I could do something significant, feel something more fulfilling, this is just what I want and need.

Love you tommy

Thank you Tom.

Totally brilliant. Everyone who has ever lost someone can feel this. Class.

Thanks Tom

Having lost someone that left a hole in my soul deeper than words can express, I feel your pain.

My concern though, is that the song you chose was written by a paedophile.

However genuine his loss was when he wrote this, I strongly feel that he has given up his right to have other people empathise with his pain when he is someone so obviously disregarding of the pain his pleasures inflict on others.

Innocent & defencelass others.

You want to honour the memory of your friend and the loss and pain his death has brought you.

Don't honour an abuser of minors in the process.

Peace.
