Month of Blog, part 2 - Day 4: A song that makes you sad

This song never fails to make me tear up. I've been familiar with Tom Waits' music for a while, but I first heard this particular sad, beautiful song used in the film, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, which itself is a sad and beautiful story.

The face forgives the mirror
The worm forgives the plow
The questions begs the answer:
Can you forgive me somehow?
Maybe when our story's over
We'll go where it's always spring
The band is playing our song again
And all the world is green

Pretend that you owe me nothing
And all the world is green
We can bring back the old days again
And all the world is green
