The Saddest Song

18 Oktober 2009 at 9:46 AM (The Ataris)

Only two more days, until your birthday
Yesterday was mine
You’ll be turning five
I know what it’s like, growing up without your father in your life
So I pretend, I’m doing all I can
And I hope someday you’ll find it in your heart

To understand
Why I’m not around
And forgive me for not being in your life

I remember waiting
For you to come
Remember waiting
For you to call
Remember waiting there to find nothing at all
I remember waiting
For you to come
Remember waiting
For you to call
Waiting there to find nothing at all

maybe someday
you really get to know me
not just the letters read to you
I pray I get the chance
To make it up to you
We got a lot of catching up to do

So I pretend, I’m doing all I can
And hope someday you’ll find it in your heart

To understand
Why I’m not around
And forgive me for not being in your life

I remember waiting
For you to come
Remember waiting
For you to call
Remember waiting there to find nothing at all
I remember waiting
For you to come
Remember waiting
For you to call
Waiting there to find nothing at all

Forgive me!
I’m so sorry!
I will make it up to you….

Summer 79

18 Oktober 2009 at 9:45 AM (The Ataris)

Our last day of summer, 1979
Gotta live it up one time before it’s over
We will make history tonight.

Out at the drive-in
All of our closest friends, they will be sneaking in
You’ll be spending the whole night
Trying eveything you can to get that girl to notice you.

“We Are the Champions” playing out on the radio station
Everyone sing along with these anthems of our generation.
Cruisin’ down Pacific Coast Highway,
Put the top down, crawl into the back seat.
Let’s create anthems of our own tonight.

Down at the roller rink,
All the cool kids crowded around the air hockey table.
“Hey, my best friend likes you,”
I hear you shout at me as you go skating by.

“We Are the Champions” playing out on the radio station
Everyone sing along with these anthems of our generation.
Cruisin’ down Pacific Coast Highway,
Put the top down, crawl into the back seat.
Let’s create anthems of our own tonight.

Sneak out of your window, darlin’
Let’s live like outlaws, honey
We’ll never look back.

Climb out on this rooftop,
And stare at the city lights below us
This world belongs to us tonight
The kids will keep ragin’ on-
And they ain’t never gonna stop.

“We Are the Champions” playing out on the radio station
Everyone sing along with these anthems of our generation.
Cruisin’ down Pacific Coast Highway,
Put the top down, crawl into the back seat.
Let’s create anthems of our own tonight.

Looking Back on Today

18 Oktober 2009 at 9:43 AM (The Ataris)

30th of April, seems like yesterday.
We bought a house above the ocean
where our kids could laugh and play.

I called you from Paris
to tell you that I wrote our names on the observation deck
of the Eiffel Tower.

Remember those nights,
playing “Summer wind” on the juke box of the bar we used to go.
We made out in the bathroom and you walked me to my house,
I tried to convince you not to go home.

If only i had more time, I’d take you where you wanted to go.
Italy isn’t the same without you here.
If only I had one wish, I’d want a million trillion lifetimes
that I could spend with you…
Fall in love with you again and again.

1st of November, 1998.
I was thinking of what to say when I would call.
Denise come over to my house, cuz you’re the one for me.
We’ll drink cheap wine and watch more shooting stars.

Remember our first apartment?
Our couch was never big enough for two.
Still, we’d fall asleep in eachother’s arms and wake up on the floor.
Now looking back it was made for me and you.

If only I had more time, I’d take you where you wanted to go.
Japan is really nice this time of year.
If only I had one wish, I’d want a million trillion lifetimes
that I could spend with you…
Fall in love with you again and again.

If only I had more time…
England isn’t the same without you here
If only I had one wish, I’d want a million trillion lifetimes
that I could spend with you…
Fall in love with you again and again.
