Cowboy Junkies released The Caution Horses in 1988. "Cause Cheap Is How I Feel" perfectly describes loneliness and despair. It opens with, "It's the kind of night that's so cold your spit freezes before it hits the ground." I've only experienced this kind of cold once or twice in my life, but I've felt the kind of loneliness described in the song many times. Thank God for music, as it is my lifeline.
