Songs from Love Lost


An old boyfriend left me this message today: 



Hey there. Here is a song that I wrote about you shortly after I never saw you again. I wrote it and gave it to a local band from Chicago and they recorded it. Surprisingly, it never went anywhere (wink). I think that I could have sang it better, but then again, maybe not. Anyway, I gave it to them and it sums up how I felt about you at the time. I don’t expect a response, I just hope that you don’t hate it and will smile to know that you were inspirational in the world. Ha-av-en didn’t have quite the ring to it so it was changed to a Grandma’s name. All the best.

I don’t actually believe him, even though it’s something he would do, he lived in Chicago at the time, and has the means. Regardless I found it sweet. I just wish I had the lyrics. I actually have a hard time distinguishing what singers say all the time without reading them first.  It's called Sorry Rose-Marie recorded by The Second Hand Poets.   (Click here to link) 



EDIT: Just spoke to him. Apparently this is all true. It's a song he wrote 10 years ago (which is when we broke up) but he did. Wow.

  1. Sounds like he still cares about you, Haven! Maybe talking to him wouldn't be a bad idea? (Although you'd know better than me ^^)

  2. ::smiles:: I talk to him fairly often. And when he gets melancholy he writes me often expressing how he used to feel, quite sweetly. I think he does still care about me and we are now on very good terms (this relationship was 10 years ago so there has been a lot of time to heal).

  4. You have to hit the "Play" button icon on the blog, and then hit the play button again on the page you're linked too. This was the only link I could find on-line. I suppose I could just buy the damn song.

  6. Best I could do, lyric-wise:

    I’ve been feeling pretty good lately I can’t explain
    Don’t know when I’ll be home again
    If I’m away up there are blue skies and rolling plains
    I never meant to tell you like this
    Sorry Rose-Marie

    (something about a job outside of somewhere)
    Earning minimum wage in the sun
    Gotta few debts that I need to get paid off cuz I bought money when I’d been laid off
    But other than that I’m doing pretty well

    To write this letter I look out my window, yeah
    Somehow the world seems strange
    People passing in the lights of the lamppost
    Make everybody look like shadows
    And none of these shadows knows my name

    But I remember when the October end
    You the city lights when it caught us off guard but it felt so right
    And we begged for the moment to never pass us by

    That was a long time ago

    Broke your heart it was something that I had to do
    Though I won’t be forgiving myself for that too soon
    You’ve gotta know that I never meant to hurt you
    Didn’t know what else to do

    Sometimes a life just doesn’t fit
    Maybe it’s better we forget we ever met
    Waste from around my heart hang heavy on the memories of the past
    We’ll seize this opportunity to let these go

    And I remember when the October end
    You the city lights when it caught us off guard
    But it felt so right and we begged for the moment to never pass us by

    How can something that feels so right hurt so much
    Things were was so easy and it was something something
    Somewhere along the way that changed
    You only live once so I’ve got to take a chance

    But I remember when the October end
    You the city lights when it caught us off guard
    But it felt so right and we begged for the moment to never pass us by

    I been feeling pretty good lately I can’t explain
    Don’t know when I’ll be home again
    See, if I’m away up there’s blue skies and rolling plains
    And I never meant to tell you like this
    Sorry Rose-Marie

  7. So ... it was great, but I realized, ultimately, that life was better and brighter without you.

    Story. Of. My. Life.
