Is this perhaps one of Mickey's saddest songs and for that reason also one of his most brilliant?

Mourning, melancholy, memory, remembrance, longing and love. As so often with Mickey the words tell a story that's made so much fuller by what he helps us read between the lines.

'...Sitting in the dark
In the darkness of my room
I wonder why
I look the sky
Look the sky
Begins to softly cry...'
