Something Wonderful: “I Had a Lot of Love Last Night” by the Bee Gees

The Bee Gees at their most lyrical and mysterious.  It’s not the sort of song you think it will be from its title. It’s not that sort of song at all.

    Though I’m not a Bee Gees fan, I must admit they could harmonize in a most pleasing way. And you’re right, Gerard, the lyrics do have a mysterious bent to them.

    “We’re all breaking promises…” I’ve broken a few; no, that’s not quite right: I’ve broken many; still not good enough: Ok then, I’ve broken them all. Every single one. I have no excuses why, other than…I broke my promises. I wish I could come up with a good reason—something, anything—to explain why my words always came with an expiration date. But there is no reason good or otherwise. I broke my promises. That is all.

    And I have found it a waste of time to blame this on someone else: “But you lied to me first!” No, that does not work. A broken promise lives by itself, and belongs only to its creator—me.

    I want to believe that such things are all in the past. And perhaps they are. Looking at my track record, that is a good thing. And I promise to do better—no, I’ll try to do better.

      Your students were fortunate to have sat in your classes, Mike Austin. Maybe they even know it by now.

        And I was fortunate to have them, the best kids on earth. They made me laugh; they made me cry; they reminded me why I was the classroom in the first place. It was the best of times.

        But I neither miss them nor do I miss the profession. Everyone must move on, must let go. I have moved on; I have let go.

    You were right, very different, but the same unearthly, effortless and perfect harmony.
