Birthday Month Shuffle - 7th Edition Day 24

I have a lot of songs by Neil Diamond.  In fact, Neil Diamond has in some way been a part of my romantic lives in so many ways... from first boyfriend, to first adult relationship, to marriage, to finally seeing him in concert about 2 years ago with my hubby and having an amazing time.

The song today takes me back to a relationship where I broke up with a letter which included the lyrics to a song... this was the song... I was writing about breaking up and then included the lyrics:

"Here's to the songs we used to sing,
and here's to the times we used to know.
It's hard to hold them in our arms again
But hard to let them go."

I wanted to let him know that I was sad (sorta but not really) about breaking up and also thanking him (in my 20-something brain way) for the fun times we had.... I put it in a letter... at least it's not like today where you send a text... slightly more effort... anyway, here's the song... dare I say, enjoy!

Neil Diamond was my first concert when I was 18 years old. I ended up seeing him 2 more times over the years. Always a fantastic show. I kind of wanted to go to his concert last year here in Phoenix, but I just couldn't pay the $450 per ticket for the section I would want to sit in and I didn't want to do nose bled seats. He has had an amazing career and lots of good songs, including this one!
