What about some songs by Rod McKuen a noted poet/singer/songwriter in the USA - I have his book of poems called "Love's Been Good To Me"
and these are the songs -
Love's Been Good To Me, The World I Used To Know, Try To Remember, Jean.
I haven't heard them for ages and ages. I like the first one
He also co-wrote several dozen songs with the late French composer Jacques Brel, including - If You Go Away, Come Jef, Port Of Amsterdam and Seasons In The Sun.
