"'Truth is strange," you know, "stranger than fiction' - besides being more to the point" - Edgar Allan Poe

Saw 'I am Sam' a while ago. And this Beatles tune stood out, resung by Eddie Vedder.

You've got to hide your love away

Here I stand head in hand
Turn my face to the wall
If she’s gone I can’t go on
Feelin’ two-foot small

Everywhere people stare
Each and every day
I can see them laugh at me
And I hear them say

Hey you’ve got to hide your love away
Hey you’ve got to hide your love away

How could I even try
I can never win
Hearing them, seeing them
In the state I’m in

How could she say to me
Love will find a way
Gather round all you clowns
Let me hear you say

Hey you’ve got to hide your love away
Hey you’ve got to hide your love away

Black bird singing in the dead of night,
take these sunken eyes and learn to see,
all your life,
you were only waiting for this moment to be free.
