"Cry, cry if it makes you feel better / Set it all down in a tear-stained letter" ~ Richard Thompson, "Tear-Stained Letter"
Promises Made, Promises Unkempt
Literally just making it up as he goes along.
Forget the 24-hour news cycle -- these days it's down to 24 minutes.
Spoken like a true ex-Speaker.
"If you're feeling sad and lonely / There's a service I can render / Tell the one who loves you only / I can be so warm and tender"
