The Time Traveler's Wife

Annie Lennox's version of this song ran through my head the entire time I was reading The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger...

Ev'ry Time We Say Goodbye - Cole Porter
Everytime we say goodbye, I die a little,
Everytime we say goodbye, I wonder why a little,
Why the gods above me, who must be in the know.
Think so little of me, they allow you to go.
When you're near, there's such an air of spring about it,
I can hear a lark somewhere, begin to sing about it,
There's no love song finer, but how strange the change from major to
Minor,
Everytime we say goodbye.

When you're near, there's such an air of spring about it,
I can hear a lark somewhere, begin to sing about it,
There's no love song finer, but how strange the change from major to
Minor,
Everytime we say goodbye.

If you need a last-minute gift for someone, buy this book. It so adeptly evokes the longing caused by separation, the power of memory and the sweet pain of love.
