Il Adore by Boy George

This song was released back a while ago, but I've never seen the video on YouTube until I found it by chance a while ago. This is a beautiful song about losing a loved one to AIDS.

Il Adore
Words by: Boy George
Performed by: Boy George
(Also from the musical Taboo)

Mother clutches the head of her dying son
Anger and tears so many things to feel
Sensitive boy good with his hands
No one mentions the unmentionable but everybody understands
Here in this cold white room
Tied up to these machines
It's hard to imagine him as he used to be

Laughing screaming tumbling queen
Like the most amazing light show that you've ever seen
Whirling swirling never blue
How could you go and die
What a lonely thing to do

Silence equals death this is what they say
But the anger and the tears do not take the pain away
How far must it go how near must it be
Before it touches you before it touches me
Here in this cold white room
Tied up to these machines
It's hard to imagine life as it used to be

Laughing screaming tumbling queen
Like the most amazing light show that you've ever seen
Whirling swirling never blue
How could you go and die
What a selfish thing to do

Did you ever ask those strangers what they're searching for
Did they laugh and tell you they're not really sure
You were hurt by love but still you came right back for more
Il adore il adore il adore

Oh oh mmm oh oh mmm
Oh oh mmm
