Subject:  to the memories of RON, music lyric!
Message:  SORRY to say that Ron and I ever get close to each other.

Maybe I to much respect his privacy, to relax, when he was working to get THE GATHERING running "on ground" in Austin, from when I start coming over from Denmark in June 2004.

Thank RON for everything - The Gathering will never be the same without you!


I will use this lyric/song lines mention downpages

Singer-, songwriters Jimmy Layne Webb`s words to song


Copyright 1987 White Oak Songs

If I remember right this song was dedicated to late MICHAEL BENNETT who was known from Broadway show "A CHORUS LINE".

Jimmy and Michael work together to try to gets shows up on Broadway - NO LUCK - Michael was starting to get serious ill before it all started up for real!


Only one life
Just a tiny spark
But now that he is gone
I`m somewhere in the dark
If there are ten million men
On this planet tell me then
How could only one life
Leave such a mark on me
One life
How could I have known
One life
Could be such a part of me
As precious as my own
Only one life

Only one life
What does it mean?
It`s only birth & death & and everything between
If living is a pointless chore
Just existence nothing more
Why does only one life
Leave such a emty space
One life
Make it right or wrong?
One life
Take a love I can`t replace
That always will belong
To only one life

Just another soul among so many
So who cares if one should fall
Though we`re small
We`re full of magic
When we touch the world
We change it all
With only one life

We only have one change to fight
But if we live it right
All we need is one life
To make a difference here
One life
To say we care to make it clear
We have to make it count once and for all
With only one life
Only one life

RECORDED by Glen Campbell + Michael Feinstein


I be with Mister Jimmy Webb late September in London for TWO concerts.
