Ode to Chris Mattioli…

Sometimes, during especially troubling or difficult times, songs can express what we are unable to put to words.  This is one of those times.  Let this song, which speaks so acutely of pain and loss, serve as an ode in memory of Chris Mattioli, a man who was taken from us at far too early of an age.  

In the quiet hours, when the lights are out
And my mind is free to wander
As the embers burn and the planets turn
We just carry on, I wonder

How the sun keeps rising anyway
And I still think of you every day
In a better place
That's what they say

All those photographs of the life we had
Doesn't seem so long ago
And the children born since you've been gone
I wish you had the chance to know
