823 : Completely estranged from you…yet we both have to die

There’s so many different worlds
So many different suns
And we have just one world
But we live in different ones

Now the sun’s gone to hell
And the moon’s riding high
Let me bid you farewell
Every man has to die

(Fabulous poetry from Brothers in Arms, Dire Straits…combine this with Knopfler’s vocals, and the guitars straining in the background…and you have a sublime song. I first heard this in 1989, and reinforced strongly by the version in the “On the Night” live album from 1994. Its years and I can still listen to this song/album on infinite repeat.)
