songs for broken hearts, no. 23

I love the way the emotion builds in tonight's song. When Neil Diamond does the confessional thing, I feel like he's speaking to and for me. I've got an emptiness deep inside, and I've tried, but it won't let me go... Wow. Simple words, and a fairly common feeling to have in the modern world, but he manages to convey it in a way that shakes you down to your core and rocks your soul. By the end of the song, no matter where you are, don't be surprised if you find yourself standing tall with a fist raised in the air and tears streaming down your face...
