In tribute to Frank McGarahan

These lyrics are from a wonderful song by Anastacia. I have put them on here tonight in tribute to Frank McGarahan - the Banker who was murdered this weekend - he sustained fatal injuries after trying to protect a homeless man and his partner who were being bullied by some young men - who then turned on Frank and savagely beat him to death. Frank was the best friend of Jo's boss, and they had been friends since childhood. He was a good kind family man, and he leaves behind a wife and two small children and friends too numerous to count. I never met him - but had heard a lot about him and had been on the receiving end of his generosity as he was a partner in the box at Wembley - and donated his tickets to us on the night we went to watch England play. A victim of a random senseless wicked act of ridiculous drunken violence. He died a hero - doing absolutely the right thing to protect a vulnerable man. 
 


Somebody told me
you were not coming home
the words are spinnin' in time
and the air suddenly went cold

the sun is still shining
but everything feels like rain, oh
and if I had one wish
it would be to see you again

nothing's fair
when we lose
without a moment to say goodbye

how come the world won't stop spinning
now that you're gone -now that you're gone
I know every end has beginnings
but this one's all wrong -this one's all wrong
so wrong, so wrong

caught in the middle
wrong place, wrong time
and I'm hopelessly missing you
and I can't stop deny

nothing's fair anymore
and I know there's a better place
and I'll never stop dreaming of you
