A story about "The Turn of a Friendly Card"

by Alan Parsons Project

This album from Alan Parsons Project grew on me quickly. I bought it entirely because I couldn’t get enough of the song “Time”.

Goodbye my friends
Maybe for forever
Goodbye my friends
The stars wait for me

The song transmits such a terrible feeling of loss and sadness! I definitely want this played at my funeral.

Once I bought the album, I realized that it contains several oldies but goodies. The song “Nothing Left To Lose” was new to me, but it immediately grabbed me:

You gave the best you had to give
You only have one life to live
You fought so hard you were a slave
After all you gave there was nothing left to save
You’ve got nothing left to lose…
