What does love sound like when it is not there? Singing about it is never easy because love is, in every respect, greater than any word ever meant to describe it – or any sound for that matter. A person who is happily in love has no real need for song, let alone a reason for writing one. Praising love, well, that is usually not very successful either. The songs that truly mean something are apparently those about its absence. They are about longing for love, it dying away and, ultimately, losing it – until nothing more is left of love but a memory. A memory, however, that never fully fades; just as little as the pain that never subsides.
