When I was 17, I lost my heart to a boy called Adam. I spent a Summer moping after him when he lost interest. But what has stayed with me like a stone in my shoe is not that he stopped calling. But that he had seen Simon and Garfunkel play in Central Park and I had not. Now I live in New York. And tonight, I saw Paul Simon live in concert. There were so many songs I wanted him to play. And I was nervous that somehow it wouldn't be the same after all these years of hankering to see him. But I needn't have worried. He played so many and I loved every minute of it.
Call me Al, Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes, Kodachrome, 50 ways to Leave your Lover,The Obvious Child, Hearts and Bones, The Sound of Silence, The Boy in the Bubble, Mother and Child Reunion, Late in the Evening, Slip Slidin Away, Still Crazy After All These Years. And of course, The Only Living Boy in New York....
I really wanted him to play Kathy's Song but he didn't. So I thought I'd play it for him (and you).
It may not have been the reunion concert in Central Park, but I have seen Paul Simon play in New York City and I am a happy woman.
