presented on Mystery Lyrics April 4th 2017 _"And she will always carry on Something is lost but something is found"_ Today we have an English-American rock band formed in Hereford, England, in March 1978. The original band consisted of initiator and main songwriter Chrissie Hynde (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), James Honeyman-Scott (lead guitar, backing vocals, keyboards), Pete Farndon (bass guitar, backing vocals), and Martin Chambers (drums, backing vocals, percussion). Following the drug-related deaths of Honeyman-Scott and Farndon, the band has experienced numerous subsequent personnel changes, with Hynde as the only consistent member, and Chambers returning after an absence of several years. According to Spin magazine critic Erik Himmelsbach, todays mystery song is one of the songs presenting "traditional pop sentiments" which the band mixed in with their more vitriolic work. The Encyclopedia of Modern Witchcraft and Neo-Paganism interprets the song as containing pagan themes. Vic Garbarini of Musician magazine suggested that a theme of the song is Hynde "tryin g to listen to that part of [herself] where all [her] songs come from."Greenwald considers it "a timeless love song about a life-long love." According to Greenwald, the melody combines folk music and gospel music elements.
