Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics, Gordon Lightfoot

Check out the index.

Don Quixote album at
Gordon Lightfoot's, "Ribbon Of Darkness"
The Lyrics:
In this cold room lying, don't want to see no one but you.
Lord, I wish I could be dying to forget you.
This song has a rousing tune, but it is a lament over a lost love. It gets so heavy in these lines that the singer even declares that he wishes he could die to forget his lost love.
