(A Place to) Hide Away

I've got to find a place to hide away
far from the shadows of my mind
sunlight and laughter, love ever after
Oh how I long for a place to hide away....
For tomorrow brings only sorrow...
The night and the music remind me
that the world once was mine.
I'll save my pennies for a rainy day
but where can I buy another you
Dreams are for sleeping
Love is for weeping
oh, how I long to find a place to hide away.

Listening to the voice of Karen Carpenter. Such a tragic loss.

Many people didn't like the "hokey" songs of The Carpenters. However, I've always thought that Karen had one of the most beautiful voices I've ever heard. She was truly a "candle in the wind," and her light was extinguished too soon.
