Salom, Luthea – Goodbye

One of my fondest memories of Mystery Lyrics with Sev was when I presented Luthea Salom on the now defunct Mystery Lyrics Website. Luthea was good enough to take part in this presentation by donating a copy of her then current CD “Sunbeam Surrounded By Winter” and commenting on every one of the answers submitted on the site. The banter between Sev and Luthea on that occasion was awesome 🙂

For those not in the know, I got to know Luthea personally the day I presented her in a “House Concert” in Hamburg in 2009, and in fact we are still in touch today, I am the proud webmaster of her homepage and its German pendant

“but I’m not gonna cry now I’ve done that and things worse than that,
I’m not gonna eat my words now there’s no point in that,
I’ll just say goodbye”
(Luthea Salom – Goodbye)
