I just remembered another good one. The Wyrd Sisters - "This Memory" - about the Montreal Massacre.


THIS MEMORY
(as recorded by the Wyrd Sisters)

Early that morning, cup of coffee in her hand,
Kissed her mother on the cheek, said, "I'm more busy than I'd planned.
I'll be coming home a bit late; would you keep the supper warm?"
Oh, it's just another busy day.

Early that morning, getting ready by the door,
Kissed her lover on the cheek, said, "I'll be coming back for more.
Oh, how I love you! We've got so much to live for.
Oh, and I'll be coming home real soon."

And it could have been me just as easily.
Could have been my sister (lover) left there to bleed.
Oh, it could have been my brother or my father done the deed.
Oh, no! Don't let me lose this memory.

Later on that evening I turned on my TV
Listen as they're talking about the news of a shooting spree.
Fourteen young women shot dead in Montreal.
Oh, it's a-killing of us all. Yes it's a-killing of us all.

And it could have been me just as easily.
Could have been my sister (lover) left there to bleed.
Oh, it could have been my brother or my father done the deed.
Oh, no! Don't let me lose this memory.

And it could have been you just as easily.
Could have been your sister (lover) left there to bleed.
Oh, it could have been your brother or your father done the deed.
Oh, no! Don't let us lose this memory.
