Let's get lyrical, lyrical: American Music Club - Goodbye to Love (The Carpenters)

I'll say goodbye to love
No one ever cared if I should live or die
Time and time again the chance for love has passed me by
And all I know of love is how to live without it
I just can't seem to find it

So I've made my mind up
I must live my life alone
And though it's not the easy way
I guess I've always known

I'd say goodbye to love
There are no tomorrows for this heart of mine
Surely time will lose these bitter memories
And I'll find that there is someone to believe in
And to live for something I could live for

All the years of useless search
Have finally reached an end
Loneliness and empty days will be my only friend
From this day love is forgotten
I'll go on as best I can

What lies in the future is a mystery to us all
No one can predict the wheel of fortune as it falls
There may come a time when I will see that I've been wrong
But for now this is my song

And it's goodbye to love

I'll say goodbye to love

This version of the classic depressing song reminds me of the time a couple of year ago when I was minding my own business, feeling damn sorry for myself for turning Christina Hendricks lunch offer down, eating a cheap Popsicle, heading back to a lonely house when all of a sudden, out of the blue, I was bitten by a raccoon. I mean, who's heard of a heel-biting raccoon anyway? Just as I was fighting it off, a horse galloped by and trampled all over me (the raccoon still lodged in my leg). And while I was on the floor, trying to pick myself up and wondering why a horse would be running wild in the middle of a city, aliens invaded us and made us slaves for the next decade. That is until I picked myself up from the floor and rescued the world (hee yah).
