I wish I had the nerve...

This is one of a long list of songs that, while it strikes a chord deep within me, I cannot perform. I wish I had the nerve to sing stuff like this when I was younger (it would have been cool to develop this intimate technique for an actual grown-up audience).  There is a heart wrenching swell of emotion that comes up from the depths when I listen to this song, and I don't know exactly why.  One can't help but feel it as the song plays.  Michael Johnson sings it straightforward and simple, yet with an understated melancholy that speaks to the heart of every man. I would give anything to have the depth of emotion to carry a piece like this.  

... Later!
