Song from House M.D Season 5 Episode 24 (Both Sides Now) – As Tears Go By

I’m generally meh on Season 5 of House, but the season finale is excellent, especially the last few minutes. The juxtaposition between Chase-Cameron’s wedding and Wilson dropping House off to a psychiatric hospital, playing over Rolling Stones’ As Tears Go By is poignant, but not in an overdone or overly-sentimental way.

As Tears Go By (Rolling Stones)

It is the evening of the day
I sit and watch the children play
Smiling faces I can see
But not for me
I sit and watch
As tears go by

My riches can’t buy everything
I want to hear the children sing
All I hear is the sound
Of rain falling on the ground
I sit and watch
As tears go by

It is the evening of the day
I sit and watch the children play
Doin’ things I used to do
They think are new
I sit and watch
As tears go by
